Avengers: Endgame Review
By Myla Tosatto
*SOMEWHAT SPOILER FREE*- I tried.
As Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) says in the Avengers: Endgame, “Part of the journey is the end.” He wasn’t kidding. We have had 11 years and many, many Marvel movies. Avengers: Endgame is our payoff. The stakes are high in this movie. You may need Kleenex. But you probably shouldn’t get a beverage. The movie has a running time of just around 3 hours. And you will not want to miss a single second sneaking out to the potty.
The movie basically starts about 22 days after Avengers: Infinity War. We find our remaining heroes Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Tony Stark, Captain America (Chris Evans), Black Widow (Scarlett Johannsen), Nebula (Karen Gillan), Rocket (Bradley Cooper), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), Captain Marvel (Brie Larson), and Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) alive and well, but mourning. What are their options? What can they do? Can they save half of the population that Thanos killed? Who can they turn to? Scott Lang (Paul Rudd), of course! Ant-Man has all the answers!
I’m obviously not going to go into any depth in this review. The payoff I spoke of before is for you, the fan. Not just for the reviewers. Don’t read spoilers. Stay off the internet. Go to the Cineplex, buy your Milk Duds and enjoy the end of the Avengers as we know them. I’m pretty sure that not even a date with Loki or Captain Marvel could make you miss this film! Even as tempting as that prospect may
be. . ..
Just remember, a wise philosopher* once said, “People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect. But actually from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint it’s more like a big ball of wibbly-wobbly timey-wimey. . . stuff.”
* That wise philosopher is Doctor Who. And yes, I just crossed the geek streams. Don’t at me. You’re lucky I didn’t throw Star Wars in the mix, too.
Avengers: Endgame is now playing in theaters!
