Avengers: Endgame (2019)
10 Stars out of 10



Avengers: Endgame was THE movie I have been waiting to see for however long it's been since the conclusion of Infinity War. The amount of hype and expectations was at an all time high. I try to keep everything even keel because if I don't, I'm setting myself for a huge disappointment (*see Game of Thrones Series Finale*) for the most recent letdown. I was legit concerned going into Endgame that there could be a few missteps along the way. I'm happy to say that Endgame delivered in more ways an one.

Before I go any further, I do have to say that Endgame more or less 'Jumped the Shark' with the crutch of Time Travel. But this wasn't all that surprising. I saw it come. We all saw it coming at the conclusion of Infinity War. It's the only way to bring everyone back. Well, most everyone. Okay. Moving on. With Time Travel the big plot point for the movie, it offers a wealth of comedic scenes to play out. First off, all the Time Travel references here were fantastic with Terminator, Hot Tub Time Machine and of course Back to the Future getting shout-outs (along with a host of other films in the genre). But the biggest twist on this was being able to go back in time to specific dates (that line up with Marvels biggest MCU movies) and filming additional scenes that we NEVER got to see in the original films. These were fantastic and more than that, insanely funny. Seeing Banner/Hulk watching himself in the first Avengers movie was f*cking hilarious. Especially feigning boredom of having to act like "Hulk" and wreck things so as to blend in.

Speaking of Hulk. We've come all the way from 'Hulk Smash' to basically talking as Banner throughout the entire flick as Hulk. I was just amazed at how good the CGI was in blending both Mark Ruffalo and Hulk as one. So with the gang hopping around in time, trying to retrieve the Infinity Stones, which in itself were like mini Heist Flicks, it all leads to the inevitable showdown between the Original Avengers and Thanos. The ensuing fight move than delivered here as well. When Captain America wields Thor's Hammer, it was literally the best, most thrilling thing in a sea of thrilling moments.

When those that perished in Infinity War return to stand alongside of the Avengers, you are clearly witnessing a monumental moment in Cinema. The best of course was seeing Spider-Man/Peter Parker return and to see the look on Tony's face, the guilt that has consumed him for 5 years just drift away in a matter of seconds as they embrace. Speaking of Tony, when Tony Stark, with Infinity Gauntlet in in hand, snaps and does away with all things Thanos, it was electric. But it comes at a price as his body can't handle that kind of power and he pays the ultimate price. There are many movies that can make me tear up. This one did.

I'm still processing the movie as I watched it late last night. Some things are still fresh in my mind, while other's not so much as I'm trying to place all the puzzle pieces from all the MCU movies. Loved the End Credits which was a 'Call to Action' send off of the majority of Big and Small characters in practically all the MCU flicks. It was perfect. Loved Stan Lee's cameo as well. All in all, Endgame delivers and is one of the greatest Super Hero movies of all time. I gave both this one and Infinity War 10 Stars, but I will say that Infinity War is slightly "better" for different reasons. This is definitely worth a Buy.
