Avengers: Endgame begins on the most unlikeliest note. After Thanos destroys half of the world’s population in the previous film, the remaining characters are dispersed, distressed and in disarray. Until, of course, they decide to reunite and give a final push to defeat Thanos and capture all six infinity stones from him.
The first hour of the film merely goes in establishing the characters but the writers keep you engaged with casual humour. After a slow beginning, the film remains consistently watchable because of the sheer effort on display aided by some brilliant special effects. Ultimately, it’s in the final act that the film really manages to enthral you. The ending, however, is bittersweet and might leave the ardent fans of the franchise a bit teary-eyed.
Among the characters, Robert Downey, Jr as the Iron Man gets the most emotional heft. It’s his journey that the film really tracks from beginning till the end. A huge shoutout also to Chris Hemsworth as Thor and Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk whose every joke lands perfectly. They steal every scene they’re in and provide you the much-needed comic relief amid all the jaw-dropping spectacle.
Avengers: Endgame may not be the best film in the entire franchise yet it packs enough punch to keep you glued to your seat for its running time of 3 hours and one minute. Also, the film is strictly enjoyable in 3D only.
