The endgame is almost upon us. As with Avengers: Infinity War before this, Marvel has been building up to something no one ever would have thought possible; interweaving multiple superheroes into one giant blockbuster was a dream before becoming a reality in 2012’s original Avengers. After that, it was nowhere but up from there.
Marvel has done a tremendous job building this world and getting us all invested in these characters, and when the ones who were in this cinematic universe even for a short time faded away, you were left heartbroken. How could they do that to us? Well, let me say that as hard as it was to come to grips with the end of Infinity War, the Russo Brothers let you know that everyone who survived the Decimation is right there with you. The opening scene reminds you of it all very quickly.
I had just watched Infinity War again before heading to the theater today and the opener still got to me.
Endgame does not feel like a 3 hour movie … at all. There’s laughs, there’s tears, there’s action, there’s drama. The movie has it all and does a great job of wrapping up all the movies preceding it. It manages to touch every base before bringing it home, reminding you of things you may have forgotten, and showing you knew things you never saw. A true rollercoaster of emotions throughout. Everyone has their moment to shine, and I mean everyone. It’s spectacular.
As much as I’d like to dissect the film and everything it has done, I can’t and I won’t get into that here. You just need to see this film … whatever it takes. That being said, I just want to let you all know that I believe you will enjoy this movie front to back, especially if you are a fan of any/all of the other films in the MCU. And if you aren’t, then I don’t know why you are reading this right now. Honestly, I can’t wait to see this film again, so I can wrap my head around what they accomplished in what feels like such a short time.
I’d really like to thank everyone involved in all of these movies during these last eleven years. It’s amazing what you have all accomplished. The actors and the gravitas brought to their roles, the excellent storytelling and direction from countless combinations of people, and most of all Marvel for getting it all together and having a plan. Job well done.
Honestly, I can’t wait for all of you to see it. I have so many questions and comments I’d love to share. But alas, I will have to wait until it is unleashed on the masses.
Until then …
