Avengers: Endgame ★★★★

I thought ENDGAME was MUCH better than INFINITY WAR. As much as IW played too much into the MCU’s weaknesses (CGI fight scenes), EG played into its strengths (character). And this means it earns its moments in a way IW did not. The first hour, where the film is quiet and deals with the emotional fallout of the snap, is the strongest. The rest of the film, particularly thetime travel bits, are mostly fan service, but it is very well executed fan service at least.

It still is weird that action set pieces are the weakest parts of the premiere action franchise of the era though.
