This is a Spoiler Free Review. This also means it will be super short.
So, back in the early days, the plan was to have a two part Avengers: Infinity War. Then Marvel announced that this would not be the case. There would be Avengers Infinity War and then there would be a fourth stand alone Avengers Film. Frankly? This was a terribly kept secret. Nobody really believed the two films would be unconnected. And boy…when you are reaching the final few moments of Infinity War, you knew that was not going to be a one off film.
And a year later, we are finding the remaining Avengers trying to determine how to undo the Snap Heard Around the Universe. They come up with a long shot plan to get the stones to bring everyone back.
There is a lot of stuff to love. Some real exciting moments, many great lines. It has some real heartfelt moments and a lot of fun sequences. There is a lot of surprises as well.
There are a couple things I am still not sure how I feel, especially in regards to one of the MCU’s big characters. And there are some logic issues for sure. If you read comics, you know that sometimes there are those things where you start to try and apply the logic…but I am finding myself not bothered enough for it to ruin the film.
On the other hand, they do some great stuff with certain characters. I really like how they build up Hawkeye, and their use of Hulk is a pleasant surprise. I also love the setup for certain characters (that I hope play out), and certain characters get well deserved resolutions.
Really, the limitations are few and far between, and the positives are enough that this is a strong bookend for the first four phases. I really enjoyed Avengers: Endgame. It offered plenty that I wanted to see, and stuff I did not know I wanted to see.
