Avengers: Endgame is the kinda-but-sorta-not final chapter of the billion-dollar investment we dork and dorkettes have all been squirming and prophesying for to behold. It’s got fan service galore distributed in a dish that doesn’t appear as immoral as one may presume but rather transcends as one charmingly honorable medal. But in a dish so keen on momentous build-up, it’d only seem justifiable for it to top off with a third act that, frankly, whirls out to be a fitting wrap-up to a nerd-gasm founded, superficial-combusting, industry maneuvering franchise that had absolutely no right to be this principled.
This is a blockbuster fable that manages to pull off just about anything fans could yearn for. Who knew that we would receive a superhero movie from Disney that would incorporate some actual, genuine autonomous psychological-depth to its CGI cake project unlike most of the previous episodes we’ve received from the MCU. Guardians of the Galaxy, Infinity War, and now Endgame for the “emotional” wins? That’s 3 for 22, baby! I’ll take it!
There’s a legitimate sense of urgency, of dread in this one; similar to Infinity War but raised even higher to generate humanly relatable scenarios in a movie based off of hardcore fiction. The spick and span addition of some unfiltered creative elements also, makes Endgame ascend compared to the mass majority of comic-book persuaded flicks. The particular character arcs they accomplish here are implemented in such satisfying configurations. I honestly can’t imagine these ingredients being mastered in a slicker way.
There are some plot holes and conveniences scattered across the entire movie’s runtime and the pacing is sometimes erratic, but in a movie this king-sized doing so much it can to make segments function as adequate as possible, it’s easy to look past the blemishes. A big “thanks” to just about all the thousands of hard workers who made this arts and crafts task visually explode in such a vibrant, and squirrelly fashion.
Infinity War was the modern epic of a lifetime with a catastrophic conclusion, but Endgame is the emotional payoff to a franchise eleven years in the making. What a fair way for the Russo Brother’s to (semi) conclude such a financially titanic legacy.
