Warning! There are several spoilers ahead! Warning!
Avengers Endgame was a highly anticipated movie all over the world. Even the cast did not fully know what was going on in the movie before the world premiere on April 22, 2019. The directors (Joe Russo and Anthony Russo) kept everything very hush hush while still hyping up the anticipation. Infinity war was released April 27th, 2018, over a year ago, and it left us on a major cliffhanger. Although Endgame was already filmed, they decided to hype up anticipation by making us wait a year to watch Endgame. They even waited to release the title ‘Endgame’ until December.
I went and saw it on April 26th, 2019 (the day it was released), and here is my review.
Endgame was a combination of laughter, amazement, excitement and heartbreak. From Thor’s hilarious moments to the death of two legends, Endgame made us feel a wide variety of emotions.
The best moments of the movie:
*Not in any particular order
- Cap is Worthy
In Avengers: Age of Ultron, all the Avengers attempt to pick up Thor’s hammer but all fail. Picking up Mjolnir is supposed to mean that you are worthy, although Captain America does make Mjolnir move the slightest bit. So, it was pretty awesome to see Cap wield the hammer in Avengers: Endgame.
2. Thor went for the head
In the beginning of the movie we see Thor chop off Thanos’s head and say something along the lines of ‘I went for the head,’ which made everyone gasp and laugh at the parallel to where Thor didn’t go for the head and they lost, and now he finally went for the head.
3. Iron Man is a dad
Iron Man has a daughter named Morgan with Pepper Potts in Avengers: Endgame, and she is so cute! But it made his death harder when we saw his daughter at his funeral.
4. Captain America’s suit joke
Iron Man says something like ‘That suit does nothing for your butt,’ and Ant-man counters him, saying something like ‘That is America’s —’ (we’ll say butt). Then, after fighting his past self, Captain America admires his own past butt and says “That really is America’s —.”
5. Thor Again
After Thor’s scene where he cuts off Thanos’s head, we see him again, but he is overweight, drunk, and playing video games.
6. “I am Iron Man”
Thanos says ‘I am inevitable,’ and Iron Man steals the infinity stones and makes his own gauntlet. He holds up his gauntlet and says “I am Iron Man.” Unfortunately, he dies during the process of saving them with the gauntlet.
7. “I love you 3000”
Iron man’s daughter tell him that she loves him 3000. Then, after he dies they watch a message of him telling say “I love you 3000” to her. (I cried in this scene.) Fun fact: The total screen time of the Marvel Cinematic universe is 3000 minutes, which is why they said “I love you 3000.”
8. Thor crowning Valkyrie
Thor decides to join the Guardians of the Galaxy and he crowns Valkyrie to take over for him.
9. Captain America passing down the shield to Sam Wilson (Falcon)
Captain America returns the Infinity stones to their places, and he decides to stay with Peggy and marry her instead of coming back. But when he does return, he is an old man, and he passes down his shield to Sam Wilson (Falcon).
This is the end of my review. I hope you enjoyed my review and AVENGERS: ENDGAME. If you haven’t seen it go see it; if you have, go see it again!
