Review: Avengers: Endgame

Whatever it takes.
After Thanos (Josh Brolin) succeeds in snapping half the universe away. The remaining Avengers, faced with the first loss must find a way to undo what has happened as they do not get to move on.

Saying I was excited for this film is a massive understatement so did this three hour epic live up to all my hours of fan girling? 

Don't worry, I'll respect the #DontSpoilTheEndgame movement and not go into too much detail but the scope of this movie is really extraordinary. While Infinity War perfectly balanced different groups and locations, Endgame plays like Avenger's greatest hits. It is three ours of complete fan service and it's a wonderful thing that this movie was made for the fans who support this universe through twenty two movies. 

The stars of this movie are most certainly Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans. They're the heart and soul and they give wonderful performances. Scarlett Johansson also has her best outing as Natasha and characters like Nebula and Ant-Man get far more to do this time around.

There's some things I'm not crazy about. One of them being a huge spoiler, the other not so much, and that's Gwyneth Paltrow as Pepper Potts. Pepper as a character has potential, but Paltrow plays her so insufferably. There's two scenes she's a part of in this film that are packed with so much emotion and she absolutely sucks the life out of said scenes the moment she enters them. If you don't mind Paltrow as a actress, that likely won't happen to you, but it was a massive buzzkill for me. 

Thankfully, there's so much more to love. The stakes are high, the score is beautiful, and the signature Marvel humor is still there. There's wonderfully badass moments that will require repeat viewing just to catch them all.

I'm still so over the moon about this movie I can barely string words together. (which is probably obvious by this review) I'm so glad I watched this on opening night with a crowd that clearly loves these films as much as I do. What an experience, I've never cheered so loudly in a film before.

    1. I think Paltrow was worse than Johansson in IW. She looked bored, but she didn't suck the life out of scenes like Paltrow's stiff ass did. lol

      Thorocket is my new favorite thing lol

  3. I saw it last night and I loved it. I usually like Paltrow but here she's just bad and she ruined that scene. Johansson was great though and I wasn't expecting it considering her poor performances in the previous movies.

    1. Johansson gave her best Widow peformance here for sure. It surprised me after how disinterested she seemed in IW.

  4. I think I know which Paltrow scene you were talking about and I agree with you there. Otherwise, I loved it! It didn't even feel like 3 hours, and everything you'd expect on a Marvel movie was there and it played brilliantly.

    1. Every Paltrow scene, really lol. Pepper is the worst.

      I agree it didn't feel like 3 hours at all. It flew by.

  5. Joy, Emotions and finally an ending.
    This is the movie for which the whole world waited. We won’t get another movie like this for sure.
    Love, Emotions, Friendship, goosebumps, and fight scenes are perfectly scripted.
    One main theme is ‘Sacrifice’ yes it’s needed in our real life too but we can’t or won’t bear it.

  8. I just saw it and... goddamn... what a film. There will never be another film like this ever. Now we just got to see Spider-Man: Far from Home and maybe we fans of the MCU!!!! Can get a rest. A two-year rest would be suitable.

  9. Lovely review! Downey Jr, Evans, and Hemsworth were amazing. Marvel has to be proud of itself with what it put out because I don't think it can ever be topped again.

  10. It's interesting, I didn't mind Paltrow at all. Her biggest scene really got to me. I loved so much about Endgame but the way they handled a couple of the characters really irked me. Still, quite an epic. Seeing it again Thursday.

    I loved the whole of this movie so damn much, I have no idea how to form a review that actually makes sense!
