It’s all led up to this, a three- hour long cinematic feat to “end” the 22-movie spanning saga that Marvel has fed us for the past 11 years. We all ate it up like it was shawarma after the Avengers saved New York City.
Don’t worry there are no spoilers ahead.
The Russo brothers didn’t beat around the bush and threw you right into the action from the opening scene. From there on out, I was completely captivated. Marvel does an excellent job of giving the fans exactly what they want while also throwing in some plot twists no one could’ve seen coming, not even Thanos.
I’ve heard that grabbing people’s attention is hard and keeping it is even harder, yet somehow everyone in the sold-out theater on a Thursday night at 11:30 p.m. didn’t blink.
People were laughing, people were crying, people were “oooing” and “ahhing” left and right, emotions were off the charts.
This was only possible by the outstanding performances given by the cast of “Avengers: Endgame.” However, this was almost expected as they have been known to deliver in past movies that were part the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).
Not only was the acting impeccable, but the visual effects were like art in motion. It was clear that Marvel spared no expense and went all out for their climactic Endgame spectacle.
I had my conspiracy theories all lined up going into theater and I walked out with only one of them still intact, the wait was worth it.
Eleven years ago, Marvel attempted to start something no one had ever thought of doing before, create a cinematic universe that connects all the movies it has released. It was a daunting task at the time and even they were unsure if it was going to work.
Despite all the uncertainty, Marvel delivered in giving us a superhero movie of epic proportions, with “Avengers: Endgame” wrapping it all up and putting a bow on top. I’m sure it will be hard to avoid hearing about this monumental movie so please do yourself a favor and watch this movie. You won’t be disappointed.
