Avengers: Endgame Review


Scott McGinn

[SPOILER ALERT] This movie is widely regarded as the greatest movie out of the 22 movies in the whole Marvel Cinematic Universe.  It was very comical while also being a tear-jerking film. From funny moments to emotional deaths, this movie had it all. The death of our beloved Iron Man was arguably the saddest death in the Marvel Cinematic Universe hands down.  This brought tears to many fans around the world who have been watching since Iron Man first arrived back in 2008. Iron Man was also the first movie of the 22 movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.  

Rotten Tomatoes rated this movie a 94%.  A topic critic stated,“like a reward to the fans that have been watching for all these years.”  I completely agree with this statement because it had all the nostalgia possible.  It could also be called a victory lap for all fans that have been Marvel fans for decades.  This movie was a huge service to the fans of the MCU. These movies have brought many followers to this franchise.  

The death of our beloved Stan Lee was very sad because of how much he contributed with his creativity, his wisdom, and so much more that he brought to the Marvel franchise.  Stan has made a cameo in every movie; he was even able to make his last iconic cameo in Avengers: Endgame. He was seen in a military vehicle mocking the soldiers in the back of the vehicle.  This was in the scene “Time Heist” where Captain America went back in time to get one of the infinity stones.  Stan will forever be a symbol for the creativity and knowledge that go into the MCU movies to come.

Overall, Endgame was a big reward to the fans who have been watching since the first movie in the series, Iron Man in 2008.  There were also a lot of critical statements about this movie like that it was “too much crammed into 3 hours,” however I completely disagree because although there was a lot of action, it was needed to wrap up the final end game. There was not a boring second in this movie. I was always on the edge of my seat waiting to see what will happen next. This movie had so much action, comedy, and romance, that it could attract any different type of audience.
