Avengers: Endgame

Avengers: Endgame ★★★★½

A superb conclusion to the saga. Endgame is pure blockbuster entertainment; it proudly acknowledges there's nothing wrong with pleasing audiences and offering some thrilling escapism, but it's so much more than that too.

The MCU has been pretty hit-or-miss for me, but Endgame is a stunning space opera with the best balance of emotion and action in the franchise. The character interactions are great, and the exploration of their guilt, pain and evolution since Infinity War adds immense weight.

There are some qualms I have with the pacing and structure in the first two hours, but they're excellent nonetheless. The final third is the most entertained I've been in the cinema for a long time.

I'm not a huge MCU fan, but when a full theatre is gasping, crying or sitting in stunned silence there's no need to pick apart a film ultimately made for its audience. Endgame is there to thrill, amuse, stun and to be enjoyed and it ticks all the boxes in magnificent style.
