Avengers Endgame 2019 Movie Review

My mom, who has never watched a Marvel movie before, didn’t really get this movie. She didn’t understand the hype surrounding it; she didn’t understand why it was important. However, when I was talking to her in the car, she got most of the plot points right. Isn’t that impressive? 

This film wraps up over a decade of storytelling. And I’m impressed! I haven't watched a lot of the earlier Avengers movies, but it was still great watching this one, even with very little information going in.

The thrilling plot

After the devastating effect of the Thanos Snap (erasing half the life in the world and with it few avengers too) in the previous Avengers movie titled Infinity War. The remaining Avengers now, have a mission; to defeat Thanos, no matter what it takes. It isn’t easy; the Avengers have to deal with a lot of confusing strategies, heartbreaks, and a general lack of hope along the way. Through the amazing storytelling and visuals, Avengers: Endgame satisfies fans, the so-called 'marvelites', despite the unexpected twists and turns unraveling in the movie.

The direction

Even though I’m not that big of a fan of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), I enjoyed this movie thoroughly. We walk down memory lane and get to witness how our heroes rely on each other. The visuals and graphics are simply stunning and out of this world, with a great use of vivid colour and textures, to bring the scenes to life. The story line and plot was thrilling and satisfying!

But maybe it won’t make sense to people who don’t know anything about the previous movies, but it’s fine since they aren’t the target audience.

Humour lightens up the movie

I loved how the movie used humour to brighten up the otherwise dark movie. I loved the interactions between Rocket and Thor, Rocket and Danvers, and generally Rocket in general. He’s great! He’s also my mom’s favorite since he’s 'cute'. Other scenes I found funny include the one where Lang tests out the 'time machine' and mishaps follow, as well as Banner-Hulk reacting to Hulk-Hulk.

The battle sequence is electrifying! I loved watching the heroes figure out what to do, and apparently so did the theatre (they were screaming and cheering at EVERYTHING)!

A heroic effort from the cast

The cast did a spectacular job and really gave it their all. Chris Hemsworth was great at portraying the less-better-version-of-Thor. I loved watching Karen Gillan's duality in this movie. She was out of this world. Chris Evans also did a great job, and was really CAPtivating, especially toward the end.

The writers messed up when Thor was on his mission, and they kind of opened up a plot hole. I’m waiting to see how they resolve to fix it.

I was under the impression that Captain Marvel would be a lot more important than what she is in the movie. It sucks that she wasn’t given enough screen-time because she’s awesome. She was in just about three scenes, but I already love her. She might not have had a huge role, but she owned it. She’s marvel-ous (I’m so original).

I also wish they didn’t use Nebula so much to drive the plot. It was too unrealistic (yes, I’m aware of the irony). I also felt confused watching her scenes. Although the things I’ve mentioned could be better, the movie isn’t bad. Other than what I just pointed out, the rest of the plot was pretty grounded and well-written.

A fitting end to the franchise

Overall, this was a great conclusion to a decade with our heroes. Although it isn’t suitable for audiences who are new to the franchise, it provides intense closure to long-time fans. This movie definitely got me into Marvel more. I would definitely recommend and tell you to watch it, but I don’t think you’ll have much luck getting the tickets!!!

Takeaways from the movie Avengers Endgame:

  1. Sometimes, it’s best not to take the time to wallow in pity. Listen to your mind, not your heart, and do what must be done.
  2. Every action can have an equal and opposite reaction. We might have to sacrifice some things in life that make us happy, just so we can do what we must.
  3. We must prioritise. Despite loving his family, Tony Stark decides to risk it all to save the world.
  4. Team up, and you are invincible.
  5. Stay optimistic through the dark times. A positive mindset and a sense of humour might just get you through it all.
