Let’s face it: Avengers: Endgame is the most emotional, straining film of the year.
Whether you’re a comic book film junkie or casual fan, it isn’t until you sit through all three hours that you realize just how ingrained in the greater film lexicon these characters are.
After the “snap”, an act by villain Thanos that made half the planet disappear, the Avengers sit destitute and share in a deep regret.
The remaining ones, including Captain America, the Hulk, Thor and more, must come up with a solution to undo Thanos actions.
With an all-star, truly unbelievable ensemble cast including Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Josh Brolin, Scarlet Johansson, Brie Larson and Paul Rudd, this is by far one of the most stacked films ever made.
The Marvel universe allows us to connect with superhuman characters because of the incredible acting of the ensemble, that allows us to share their pain, sorrow and everything else.
After 11 years — since 2008’s Iron Man — I care what happens to the Avengers, and Endgame is by far the most affecting action film I’ve ever seen.
It’s a true gem of a film, one that has defined the journey of these characters for an entire generation of moviegoers.
I don’t know what’s next for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but Endgame was the most thrilling, incredible conclusion to this chapter of the film series fans could have asked for.
