Movie Review: Avengers: Endgame

I’ll start off by saying, I’m NOT a Marvel fan. Never got into the franchise and never will. With that said, anytime I get a huge request to watch a certain Marvel movie I cave in and give it a watch. Even though I’m not a fan of the franchise personally, they do make great movies and this was no different. Today’s movie review will be on Avengers: Endgame!

Now this movie was a sequel to last year’s Avengers: Infinity War. Every character is here including Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk, Thor, Black Widow, Hawkeye, War Machine, etc. Since it’s a sequel there’s not much new characters involved.

The story is that the superheros want to end Thanos once and for all. Thanos disintegrated half of all life just weeks prior to all Avengers joining forces yet again with their goal to destroy him. Throughout the movie, the crew travels back in time to numerous years including 2012, 2013, 2014 and even 1970! That retro year was very cool to me. The whole purpose of them traveling back in time was to retrieve all of the Infinity Stones. Once they have all of the stones, they’ve created a gauntlet to keep them hostage. The Avengers crew finally were about to fight Thanos when he assembles his own army. This causes a restored Stephen Strange to restore the Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy armies along with the armies of Wakanda. This leads to an epic brawl that I really enjoyed. I know I’m skipping through majority of the movie but a lot of people still haven’t seen it yet, so I don’t wanna say too much. Brawl ends with Iron Man finally capturing the stones and uses them to kill Thanos and his whole army, but that came with a heavy price. Iron Man became mortally wounded then sadly dies.

After his funeral, Thor appoints Valkyrie as the new king of New Asgard and joins the Guardians of the Galaxy! Captain America returns all of the Infinity Stones to their original places in time. Fast forward to the present, elderly Captain America passes on his vintage shield to Sam Wilson, aka Falcon!

This movie gets a 9/10! Like I said earlier, I’m not a Marvel fan but I can see why the franchise is popular. From the storytelling to the nonstop action, this movie really was an endgame!
