It is the end of an era. It is never easy to say goodbye to something you love. Honestly, it was hard to walk into the theater knowing we are now in the end game. Avengers Endgame is the cherry on top of 11 years and 21 movies worth of intense cinematic build up. Is it worth the wait? Is it kid friendly? As a fan, I was eager to see the ending of the story. I wanted to see how things came together. I wanted answers. I have to say that writers, directors, and crew 100% delivered on making this film complete and satisfying to the fans.
Since Thanos is demanding silence all over the universe, I will not go into plot details. I will say that the film overall is visually stunning and electriflying! I was absolutely blown away by the epic battle scene near the end. It made for an incredible cinematic viewing experience. And, I didn’t even see it in 3D! There is one marvelous female empowerment scene that had me grinning ear to ear. As far as the ending goes, it was not exactly what I wanted, but it was done so well that I was still happy with it. My final thought as the credits rolled was “that was beautiful.”
I really enjoyed seeing where the characters were in a post Thanos world, and how it affected them all in such different ways. You know Marvel does crossovers and interweaving like it’s their day job because well, it is. You can definitely expect answers to your burning questions, and you will absolutely be left shocked at moments too. Like any great movie, Endgame takes you on an emotional rollercoaster ride. Literally, I was happy, proud, angry, disappointed, sad, happy again, and on and on. Oh, and how could I forget laughing? I was totally laughing! You should know that for the first time, there are NO end credit scenes. The end is actually the end.
As far as it being kid friendly, there is some language and violence. If your child has seen an Avengers movie, it is very similar to others in this department. I would allow my 12 year old to see it, but not my 7 year old. Note the 3 hour run time!
Overall, I definitely think it was worth the wait, and Marvel fans will have a great sense of pride in seeing this closing chapter for these heroes we have come to love so deeply. It is not easy to know that this is it. It was not easy to see it all play out. It is not happily ever after for all. “Part of the journey is the end.” Seeing it in theaters is a must for all fans. You will not be sorry you did.
To my fellow Avengers, and to the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, I love you 3000.
