REVIEW – “Avengers: Endgame”

After a year of anticipation since the finale of Avengers: Infinity War in April of 2018, Avengers: Endgame has finally arrived. While this is by no means Marvel Studios’ last film as a company, it immediately feels like a finale and a true swan song for this era of heroes and actors. The film picks up right where Infinity War left off, with our heroes distraught and separated from one another after Thanos (Josh Brolin) snapped his fingers with the Infinity Gauntlet and made half of the population in the universe disappear. The remaining heroes such as Tony Stark/Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Steve Rogers/Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Hulk/Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo), Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) & more try to locate Thanos and reverse his actions.

Avengers: Endgame is not only a finale to the Infinity Saga, but it feels like a culmination of eleven years years worth of storytelling. While watching the film, you’re in absolute awe at both the spectacle of what directors Joe Russo and Anthony Russo have managed to accomplish, but also the star-power and interconnectivity being woven together into one giant, sprawling, emotional story. What’s even more impressive is how this manages to balance being a genuinely beautiful meditation on loss and growth, while also being one of the largest, most bombastic action films of recent memory. It’s truly an astonishing feat.

Every character here is given their time to shine in a unique way that helps them feel essential to the flow of the story. And when they’re together, it reminds you why you fell in love with the Avengers in the first place as the chemistry is as good as its ever been. The entire film comes together for what feels like a once-in-a-lifetime cinematic experience that brings all of your favorite Marvel characters and stories into one giant finale. It’s a breathtaking, awe-inspiring, and highly emotional rollercoaster from start to finish and a more than worthy final chapter to this saga. It’s everything you want it to be and possibly more.
