Avengers: Endgame. Best. Superhero. Movie. Ever.

Apr 23, 2019
Epic review for an epic movie.

I'll be blunt. Avengers: Endgame is the best superhero movie ever made.

Avengers: Endgame is the perfect capstone to Disney's 22 movie arc through the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The crowd cheered, gasped, cried, and LAUGHED throughout. It was an emotional rollercoaster that eases the bleak with comedy, and the action with, well, more action. SO MUCH ACTION.

This post is brought to you by the resident nerd-in-chief, the hubs. In case you have been under a rock, here is the official trailer to catch you up:

Plot Setup

The Avengers, Guardians, and other super-hero clubs remaining after Thanos's SNAP have to pick up the pieces of a broken world and universe. The pacing begins slowly as the heroes' plans come together, but reaches a fever pitch halfway through the movie that does not relent until the end, that, and this is as close as I will get to a spoiler before going incognito, ends in a completely satisfying way. The emotions run high for long stretches of the movie. The teenage boy next to me wasn't afraid to weep openly (Did I cry? I'LL NEVER TELL!).  The movie is truly breathtaking, they put the "special" back in special effects, and it just felt good the whole time.

After that the spoilers are too big to put much more detail. Scout's honor, the thing is so packed full of spoilers that I can't mention plot points beyond that. The movie does a great job of catching you up on everything, and if you want to start the MCU with this one, I wouldn't recommend it, but it could be done.

Family Friendly?

What else can I say for sure, safely? Language. Much more language than previous Marvel movies. Probably a dozen or two $h!ts and @$$es.

The movie, like all Marvel movies, has significant cartoonish on-screen violence. Endgame is on the edgier side of this with several on-screen deaths and some blood, but no gore. Less than the average Star Wars movie (even the new ones under Disney).

SPOILER!!!

OK OK, one spoiler. You don't have to watch the credits. No stinger at the end!
