If there was one word to sum up Avengers: Endgame, it would be WOW. Just when you thought Infinity War raised the bar, Endgame completely blew it out of the water.

There will be no intentional spoilers as I’m sure a lot still haven’t seen it, although there may be parts of Infinity War in this review.

Directors Joe and Anthony Russo continue their reputation of putting out solid films that all started with Captain America: The Winter Soldier. They conclude the “Infinity Saga” with an action-packed, story filled finale that made some fans like me satisfied while other fans may feel like they left some characters in a tough spot.

This film brings the original six Avengers to the forefront after the events of the last movie. Captain America (Chris Evans) and Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) star with their wits along with their conflicting personality

With the new comical emergence of Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Korg (Taika Waititi), this isn’t the endgame for comic relief. Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) also puts in a masterful comedic performance.

How would the mainstays of the franchise deal with the effects of the losses of Infinity War? That’s what this movie looks to answer, and it does just that with perfection. Trying to fix the devastation of the snap of Thanos (Josh Brolin) was their goal and to get all of their friends back.

The gut-wrenching emotions are a focal point in this marvelous epic. Polar opposites of crying and sheer joy with the action and callbacks to past movies are the best parts.

Moviegoers who might have not seen all of the other 21 Marvel movies may be at a little bit of a disadvantage with all of the references, so it might be a good idea to see at least some of them before seeing this one.

But for avid Marvel fans, this is a dream. For people who are concerned with the three hour and one minute run time, don’t be because time flies with all of the fun antics and action happening. Although pre-movie bathroom break planning is recommended.

The sooner, the better would be my advice to see this movie to avoid any spoilers. They don’t call them “spoilers” for nothing. So grab your seven dollar popcorn and your five dollar soda and enjoy this movie while it’s on the big screen.
