Avengers: Endgame is the 22nd film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) and is the direct sequel to Avengers: Infinity War. Endgame is on its way to possibly becoming the highest grossing film of all time after taking the number 2 spot from Titanic (1997). The film has already surpassed over two billion dollars at the box office and should continue to grow over the coming weeks. Endgame stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, and Chris Hemsworth as the Avengers attempt to undo the actions of Thanos in Infinity War.

The film’s run time is approximately three hours long, and it surprisingly succeeds in covering such a wide range of events in this span of time. To many viewers, the film does not feel this long, and it constantly keeps the viewer captivated. Endgame finds much of its strength in impressive special effects and a score that accurately reflects each moment within the film. Despite not having as much action as Infinity War, Endgame is still consistently entertaining with dialogue that captures each character’s desires and experiences in almost every scene. The actors bring some of their best performances to the table as well, allowing for the creation of great character moments that establish a diverse cast of individuals throughout. Nearly every Avenger is given proper justice, and the film provides a proper conclusion for some of the characters.

Even though Endgame is a fantastic conclusion to the MCU’s Infinity Saga, the film is not without flaws. Some of the scenes within the film contain moments of fanservice when there should not be any. Endgame’s fanservice is a great homage for any longtime MCU fan; however, some of these moments broke the film’s immersion and felt out of place. Much disappointment was also found with Captain Marvel’s character, who had only a small number of lines and hardly any screen time. It seems as if her character is simple and has no desires past beating up bad guys and acting tough. When compared to more complicated characters like Iron Man and Captain America, Captain Marvel lacks in several areas and lost much potential after the events of Endgame.

Overall, Marvel successfully established a grandiose ending for the Infinity Saga with Avengers: Endgame. The film paid tribute to its predecessors and concluded in a way unseen with other film series of the past. Endgame is a nearly perfect film, and it excites us for what the MCU has in store for us in the future.

Rating: 9.5/10
