I could happily never watch another MCU film after Endgame because it perfectly concluded the journey we have all been part of for the past eleven years. Endgame is a truly special film, it is the culmination of years of hard work, which was all pieced together with such care and attention, I couldn’t help but adore it.
I will say this, Endgame isn’t anything special in terms of film making, but when have we ever expected that of a Marvel film, really? What Endgame’s succeeds at is that it shows off how much thought, time and care has been put into the MCU over the years, and it takes you on a wonderful journey that makes you reflect on what has been achieved in this time.
The story was great, I can’t go into much detail about it at all, because I don’t want to risk ruining anything for you guys, but I really think they did a great job at following on from the devastating ending of Infinity War Pt.1. The opening scene was perhaps one of the most impactful scenes of the MCU so far. It set the dark and foreboding tone for the rest of the film, truly showing what was at stake for the remaining Avengers.
Even though there were a lot of darker moments throughout Endgame, there were a lot of injections of humour, that really broke the tension, but never felt crow-barred in, they were all natural, and provided some of the funniest moments we have seen in an Avengers film so far.
Endgame also showed off some of the best performances we have seen from the cast so far, especially from Scarlett Johansson and Jeremy Renner, who both were given so much more depth in this movie. Something that I think a lot of us have been hoping for over the years.
The dynamic between the remaining cast was also very well handled, I think one of the issues with Infinity War was how overcrowded it was, and although I think it was managed well, Endgame felt like a well-needed rest from the chaos, and it enabled some deeper exploration into certain characters.
Overall, Endgame was a very satisfying and extremely emotional end to an epic saga. It is truly the best we could have hoped for and it did not disappoint and although there were a few questionable moments, they were outshone by everything else. Like I said at the beginning, I would be content if Marvel left it at that, however, there is a part of me that can’t wait to see where they take the universe next!
