Avengers: Endgame

Avengers: Endgame ★★★★

What I went to watch in 2019 - Film #25

Following on from the masterpiece that was Infinity War this was going to be an uphill battle to really press all my buttons so I'm glad to say it did for the most part. The first act is the perfect continuation of the previous film, the second spins everything on its head and the finale is just as bombastic and immense as you'd expect from the climax of the Infinity Saga. I thought the majority of characters were poorly treated if I'm being honest with only a small handful being treated gracefully. I have some major gripes with some aspects of the plot as well, such as wrecking Thor's character arc and reducing Thanos is a 2 dimensional baddie in particular. But other elements such as Clint, Scott, Tony and Nat's stories are nicely expanded on and rounded up. The Russos' and the rest of the creative team undoubtedly stumbled at the final hurdle but this is still enjoyable and there's plenty of fan service to please the dedicated viewers. Nevertheless I love you 3000 Marvel.
