Avengers: Endgame picks up right where we left off in Infinity War. With 50% of all living things gone, the Avengers assemble once more to make everything right. With nothing but time on their side, the Avengers team up to make this the greatest story we’ve ever been told.
I cannot express how amazing this movie is. The plot is straight to the point and gives us all a clear explanation of what’s going on and how it’s going to go down. Which is especially important when there are a lot of time jumps and different characters’ perspectives. My attention was captured from the second it started and it never left. The visuals were absolutely stunning and said so much that couldn’t be expressed otherwise. From the gloomy grey of the sky after the 50% vanished, to the rainy intensity of the fight scenes. The subtle hints that time has passed showed how dedicated to detail the crew was. Stan Lee makes his last cameo in this movie as well; sadly this is the last we can expect to see of him in any other film.
I know a lot of people have said this already, but it truly is an emotional roller coaster: I laughed, cried, and mourned all in a span of three hours. We lost a few people whom we grew, fought, and learned with, and knowing that it’s over really hurts me in a way I didn’t know a fictional loss could. It was done so that you almost can’t be mad at it for happening that way (almost). It was the perfect balance of humor and pain that gave this movie it’s gracefulness.
Ten years. Ten years of laughter, loss, and excitement have finally found its close. Avengers: Endgame is the last story that we’ll be told about the earth’s mightiest heroes. It’s the end of an era, and while many are saddened to see many beloved characters hang up their weapons, it’s the start of a new beginning (which should 100% be about the next generation). I feel like it’s only fitting to say thank you. Thank you to everyone in MCU for changing our lives as we know it.
(We love you 3000)
