First of all, here's to my first movie review on this blog! 👏 I definitely wanted to make it a good one, and this movie definitely proved itself.
If you have not yet seen Avengers: Endgame, I HIGHLY suggest you go watch it. Even if you aren't a fan of the series, it is still a very solid movie with perfectly time comedic relief, incredible CGI and a roller coaster of emotions. (So much emotion that I actually cried more watching it the second time... #notashamed)
With that being said, I will no be spoiling anything from the movie. If you would like to discuss scenes, development, or really anything about the movie, you can reach out to me at my twitter @curtisfreezin.
My initial rating of Avengers: Endgame is 10/10. I am biased, but I do have my reasoning. If you didn't know, Endgame is the finale to the incredible series of movies from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It ties 21 movies together into one epic 3 hour masterpiece.
The opening of Endgame was very well done in the sense that it didn't make me feel like I missed anything. Sequels can tend to give minimal or no context as to where you left off until later in the film, and sometimes never at all. But Endgame took me right back to the end of Infinity War, where I had once experienced sadness and despair. And with that, I was immediately hooked.
The first real death of the movie was COMPLETELY unexpected. My breath was immediately taken away. I felt like the "fight" scene was almost too easy though. I wish there was more fists being thrown. But what was I supposed to expect within the first 15 minutes of the movie?
For me, the next few scenes were really well done. They did a great job of connecting previous MCU movies into the plot of Endgame. The whole movie had little hints and connections to previous movies in this series, which always gave me butterflies. I loved how each character was introduced. And I don't mean introduced as in new Marvel heroes being introduced, but how the heroes were brought into the light of the movie.
The final fight scene was spectacular. They kept me on my toes by distracting me from what just happened 10 mintues prior. You know that "OH HELL YEAH" feeling when the superhero that you haven't seen for a while comes in and just totally kicks ass? Yeah, that happened a lot for me.
The end of the movie had me in tears. I was sobbing like a little girl if I'm being completely honest. It was a mix of happy and sad tears. There was much more emotion in this movie. More feelings of love and genuineness. The perfect ending to an incredible series.
After all that being said, I am excited to see what comes out of the MCU. With many of the actors contracts being done, I think we can all expect a new set of heroes come into the spotlight. Although, Marvel movies won't be the same without Stan Lee cameos.. 😢
I love you 3000.
