AVENGERS: ENDGAME

  • Direction: Anthony and Joe Russo
  • Actors: Robert Downey Jr, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth, Josh Brolin, Brie Larson
  • Rating: 4 / 5

Eleven years after Tony ‘Iron Man’ Stark kicked off what we now know as the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the multi-billion-dollar, 22-film MCU-Avengers franchise (arguably the most lucrative franchise ever) has finally been wrapped up.

The question most fans are asking is, does it all end with a bang or a whimper? Happily, and despite the film’s bum-numbing three-hour runtime, the answer is without question the former.

At the end of last year’s …Infinity War, the intergalactic despot Thanos (Josh Brolin) had with a snap of his fingers wiped out half of all life in the universe, including several of our super-powered friends. 

Their numbers depleted, it’s now up to the surviving Avengers — among them Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr), Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) — to figure out a way to reassemble, fight back, and tackle the genocide unleashed by the arch-villain.

The narrative is bogged down from time to time by hoary time-travel and heist tropes, but the co-directing brothers Anthony and Joe Russo do manage to still keep it engaging. They spend as much mileage on character interplay and emotional stakes as on CGI-augmented spectacle.
