Enfant du Siècle’s review published on Letterboxd:
Instead of writing a proper review, I would just like to highlight a few points, because by now almost everything has been said and I think I have little to contribute.
- Despite its length and the predictability of the story, the film is never boring or tiresome.
- The third act is spectacular and the purest definition of entertainment, but what precedes it could have been more concise and less contrived.
- The easy humor that characterizes MCU is still not to my liking.
- I'm not sure I like the new "comic" side of a certain character that here borders on ridicule.
- Captain Marvel's character is completely unnecessary and several others a tad wasted.
- I'd like them to be subtle when trying to insert their message of inclusion, otherwise it comes off as blatant pandering.
Avengers: Endgame is an undeniable product created to please the masses and a satisfying closing for an ambitious project that will undoubtedly leave its mark on contemporary pop culture. I've had fun and I've even been moved on at least one occasion, but there's something missing that doesn't allow me to share the feeling that this Marvel epic is the apex of the genre.
