Finally, the Avengers: Endgame is out and concludes an era of super-hero movies!
I have to admit that I do have mixed feelings after seeing the movie. But all in all, it is actually a good thing to put an end to that era. It definitely feels good for multiple reasons.
I am personally not happy with the direction taken with … a lot of the characters. It even looks like the scenarists do not really know what to tell about some of them anymore.
The other bad part is, again, that the scenarists seem to have a hard time to deal with a lot of super-hero fighting at the same time. Which gives some awkward battle scenes sometimes. Everything seems then to be a matter of timing. Couple of seconds earlier or later and everything could be completely different.
The scenario is honestly not surprising and you can probably guess the whole movie after the first 25 min. There is obviously a lot of plotholes, mostly visible at the end of the movie, but for this kind of movie, it is better to not think too hard and just follow the flow.
Does the movie feel too long? I think that it is fine. The rhythm of the movie is pretty good and consistent. However, the movie can easily be separated into 4 or 5 acts (which can be guessed as I mentioned) and after each act, you may think: how my god there is still so much to come.
One very good thing is the number of characters (not only super-heroes) from previous movies. It is astonishing. And even if the main story plot is easy to see, the scenarists will definitely play with your feeling all the time. Every scene is a good reason to play with your sentiments, in one way or another. God damn ninjas cutting onions or definitely with you al the time. Most of the time it works really fine … and in some others, it looks way too cheesy. The movie is really based on fan service and everything is done to make everyone happy.
But really, The Avengers: Endgame is incredibly entertaining and some scenes will definitely give you the chill. If you liked Infinity War, you will definitely like that one two and how the Avengers bring a payback time to Thanos.
