I now understand the fuss… I understand why this has smashed box office scores. I understand why this film was sold out across the world. Yeah, I get it. This film has such a perfect, wholesome ending to the original Avengers. I know they are making new Marvel films, but I truly believe this to be the perfect final ending of the amazing originals: Iron Man, Captain America, The Hulk, Thor, Black Widow, Hawkeye. It was perfect for all these characters, all the way to end. Ok, I might have said this before, that Marvel has dragged it out for too long, but I take it back for this ending to be concluded. It was truly a brilliant film and I cannot contest otherwise.
‘Infinity War’ told us that Thanos was successful. He was successful in making 50% of Earth’s population disappear. This included some of the new heroes: Spider-Man (Tom Holland), Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) and Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch). Only a few were left behind to pick up the pieces. The world has become broken and lost. A lot happens when everyone loses someone, tragic, drastic changes. Our heroes that are left behind becomes ones we don’t recognise; Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner), Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) are examples in particular. Others become desperate in fixing the world, unable to move on: Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson) and Steve Rogers (Chris Evans).
Can Marvel make a film longer? Yes! Three hours ‘Endgame’ is. But so much happens, and it really doesn’t feel like it is that long. Everything that happens makes so much sense in the film that you can’t really take any of it out. Plus, you cannot predict any of it. Well maybe you can predict some parts just before they are about to happen, like just before. Nevertheless, don’t go into this film having the plot predicted and easy, it’s a film to absorb you and shock every element.
‘Avengers: Endgame’ is a mass of action scenes with the usual excellent special effect, of the familiar comedy of the loved characters and of an emotional rollercoaster to take you on. The film gets your shocked, sad, hopeful and laughing. I have to mention the phenomenal moment that got me cheering for the film (not literally…) – the absolute love for the women power was empowering. I really can’t say there was any part in the film that I didn’t enjoy. I was hooked from beginning to end, lost in the cleverly thought-out plot that was intriguing and brilliant. Every character was perfect in their execution and reasoning in the plot, we needed them all and they all came to a hell of a finale. Although, to have a full understanding of every second, you do need to watch all other Marvel films connected, however, I haven’t seen them all and it still made sense to me.
