Avengers: Endgame

Avengers: Endgame ★★★★★

At first I was afraid, I was petrified, kept thinking Endgame would do wrong by my cinematic franchise. But Endgame met my expectations and then some; it is truly the most satisfying conclusion to the past eleven years of the MCU that I could ever conceive of. Yes, it treads on the same old ground, but in a new, intriguing, and exciting direction. The scale of this cinematic achievement is magnificently evident from several details scattered throughout the film, let alone the story itself: a send-off to the Avengers that I’m sure Stan Lee is proud of from up there. If a movie can hold your attention for 3 hours without an intermission, you know it deserves five stars. Be prepared to both cheer and tear up.
