(WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD)
The best things in life come to those who wait. They sure made us wait, but they delivered.
Avengers: Endgame…to say I cried is an understatement. I sobbed. I also laughed, gasped, and cheered. I even clapped, and we all know how much I hate the people that clap in movies. From the opening sequence to the Avengers final stand, I left the theater dehydrated.
But I absolutely couldn’t help myself. This movie was deserving of all those emotions and reactions, and so much more. I wasn’t sure how this movie would compare to Infinity War. The way all the characters crossed paths and interacted was brilliant. No one overpowered anyone. And the cliffhanger. UGH. Talk about edge of your seat.
So how could this movie tie over 30 characters and 21 films together in a three hour span of time? In my twenty-one years on this Earth I have yet to see any movie that wraps story-lines up a seamlessly as this movie did. It was absolutely perfect. It was a spectacle. I’ve seen so many movies and none have ever come close to doing the things Endgame did. I think it truly changed the game of what movies can do, and I can’t wait to see the next phase.
Even though I’m not going in to a full on review we have to talk briefly about Tony Stark. The Russo brothers had to do it to us. Tony had to die. We all knew that this would happen, but the way it happened. I’m still speechless. Over the past 10 years he’s fought tirelessly to do the right thing, and to make more of himself, and he did. With one snap he immortalized himself as Iron Man. There was a collective sob from every person in the theater when Pepper told Tony it was okay, and that he could finally rest.
This movie was so well done that I honestly don’t want anything more. I left the theater feeling so content about where each character stood, and I’ve never said that leaving the theater after watching a Marvel movie before. Even though I’m content, I’ll definitely watch it again.
