Avengers: Endgame (No Spoilers)

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi all. I went and saw the early morning session and I've come away somewhat disappointed. Not giving away spoilers but felt the 3hr long story was too long for what it was and felt it was very simple story telling. Some huge missed opportunities that fans like myself were really hoping for but never came. 

 

I like Infinity War so much more. Keen to hear others impressions.

Grace loved it and some people think she can be anti-Marvel at times. This is a glowing NON-SPOILERS review.

Expected more, and wanted more twists and turns. In some ways, a different Avengers movie, not the worse (Age of Ultron wins that hands down) but no way matching the first Avengers movie.

But ol' Get Stuckmannized seemed to like it.

Having now watched the film, I will try to give my 2cents worth in a NON-SPOILER way. These are just my own opinion only.

  • 'Endgame' is a different movie to the previous 'Infinity War', the premise has changed, so it should be judged in that context. People anticipating a carbon copy of Infinity War (in terms of movie experience) could indeed feel disappointed.
  • If people watch Endgame expecting a credible and entertaining resolution of the premise set up by Infinity War, then I think most would be satisfied.
  • Moreover Endgame provided a mind-blowing wrap-up of the previous 21 films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and did so in a clever and touching way. The downside is that viewers should brush up on the earlier movies to enjoy Endgame to the max. So watch away :)
  • Where Endgame surpassed Infinity War is in characters development, there was plenty of that and done in a loving manner. One could tell the movie makers loved the Avengers characters and they pay their ode to them in this movie. Like Star Trek movies to Trekkies? Maybe. I would say Endgame is more like 'Return of the King' to the LOTR trilogy.

Those dot points sum up what the film makers tried to achieve with Endgame, with a huge ensemble cast, and facing the incredible expectation set up by Infinity War. Sure, anyone could be critical of aspects in the movie, but I feel the film makers struck the right balance and compromise when faced with such a daunting task. Honestly, I didn't feel 3 hours was long enough 👍. "Nuff said!

I went last time, very well worth my time. Agree 100% with @LHC.

 

Basically, if you liked previous Marvel / Avengers movies, this will not disappoint. It's bleak, funny, touching, and wraps up previous 21 movies very well, plus it leaves the door open for more to come.

 

My advantage, I've been on leave this week, so I caught up with some of my previous Avengers, Thors, Iron Men, Guardians of the Galaxy, etc, and I can say that Endgame fits nicely in all of it. Will definitively watch again when out on BD.

 

My 2c.

 

Cheers,

 

Alberto

Saw it.  Didn't mind it.  And while there was only a small number of people in the cinema when I saw it, got to say that the silence was deafening at one stage.

 

But yeah, funny, sad, entertaining.  Glad I saw it in the cinema.

I too feel very disappointed. Did not like the story at all and a lot of scenes were overly long or unnecessary. Probably fares better for those who is a big fan of Marvel movie and love every little details about it...

 

For example, who really cares if Tony Stark really likes cheeseburger!? And don’t get me started with CM!!!
