Jak-Luke Sharp’s review published on Letterboxd:
Marvel + Disney. Cinema
”You could not live with your own failure, and where did that bring you? Back to me”
Anthony and Joe Russo’s Avengers: Endgame - the supposed finality to the proceeding 22 film saga before it and concluding companions piece to last years Avengers: Infinity War - arrives in the form of a three-hour picture, comprised of two hours of fan service and an hour of story. Endgame is visually magnificent. It looks stunning with phenomenal scale and scope with much of the technology in terms of production leading up to this being executed here exquisitely. Yet the film is weakly layered with little to actually convey both emotionally and viscerally speaking, due to the poor structure exercised. There are some incredibly bizarre choices here, but thankfully some are organic and succeed in their execution. It'll be a smash at the box office undoubtedly but this sadly won't live long in the memory with that all important full stop morphing into a question mark with Endgame being a clear example of Marvel not knowing when to stop.
