Avengers Endgame SPOILERS

**SPOILER ALERT**

Watched it this afternoon

3/10


I am not a diehard MCU fan. Some of the MCU movies I love, and others I don't. I like to take it movie by movie and not just buy into hype and automatically give a high rating because I'm emotionally attached to MCU or the characters.

That said, I found Endgame very disappointing. While Infinity War was outstanding, Endgame had very little real plot, was filled with moments that were made to make a theatre full of diehards cheer because their favourite characters were all together in a dramatic montage, and quite frankly was just a large cop out. After all that happened in Infinity War the answer was time travel?! I would have hoped they could have come up with something a little more creative than that. Maybe something that involved plot and strategy with a little adversity. Isn't that what writers and directors are paid to do?

It also took almost an hour to really start the movie, and once it started, there was hardly any real plan. An hour of build up that concluded with: tony stark and ant man figure out time travel, the avengers take 5 minutes to figure out where the stones are, they go back in time and get them with hardly any adversity, and that's pretty much that.

I find it incredibly frustrating that this movie is getting the feedback it's getting, because it just really wasn't a good movie. And going in I was SUPER excited and really wanted to like it. There was no problem solving, there was no adversity, and again, the answer to the most shocking and dramatic ending of a MCU movie was to simply time travel and have the same fight all over again but make it significantly worse. Also the big final battle was a mere 10 minutes out of a 3 hour movie! And captain marvel who wasn't even relevant in Infinity War is all of a sudden this cure all when the you-know-what looks like it's hitting the fan.

Was it entertaining? Absolutely. But that's all it was: moderately entertaining but worth forgetting. Iron man dying was supposed to have a massive emotional impact that I just didn't feel, the so called "humour" was forced, and the last 20 minutes is just a bunch of nostalgic pictures of the avengers while contemplating Tony Stark's death.

Maybe they just rushed it. I'm not sure. But after an extremely morally conflicting and well thought out Infinity War that ended the way it did, I have absolutely NO idea how people think this was a good movie. Very disappointed in what I thought would be an amazing conclusion to the Avengers

Havent seen anyone mention this yet but Captain Marvel didnt bring much to this either - All I have learnt from the two films she has been in is that shes good to use as a human bullet

She;s pointless in Endgame, only thing she did was save Ironman and fight at the end.

Ha, I haven't seen Captain Marvel, so don't know her back story.

I don't mind her being over-powered, as long as you can use her correctly. I don't think they did in Endgame, but I will comment further once I've seen Captain Marvel.

If they start using Captain Marvel to tackle most of the problems the Avengers will face, the rest of the Avengers might as well just stay at home or go on holiday, they wouldn’t be needed.

I agree that in a team, if one person can do everything with one hand tied behind their back, it defeats the purpose of the team.

However, I think over-powered characters can work well too. It's down to the writing. With good writers and an engaging story, it could work in my opinion. I do think that the over-powered characters need a weakness though and that can easily be exploited by the villain,

I grew up with Marvel, collected the comics as a kid (still in my loft) I totally agree with this article, Endgame for me was a huge disappointment. Infinity War set up for something really special, and in the end it felt meh.

I agree time travel was lame, I truly thought Ant Man stuck in the quantum realm would have a major part to the story, but nah, so many things about this film wasn't needed, and in the end I left underwhelmed, especially after the epic Infinity War.

Thanos plan was crap, hed need to do it again at some point, depending on how faster the populations rebounded, we also dont know if it was half of every race that got killed, or half of the races in the universe were killed

I think it was half of all the universe, so it was pretty random across earth. Hawkeye lost his sons, wife and daughter. More avengers vanished than survived.
It was literally a lottery.

But having watched it again, man am i still disappointed.
Just way off the standard set by Infinity War.
Each to their own but I stand by my OP it's not a good movie.

It was a poor film. Plot holes galore. To be honest, it felt like it was all fan service. It is the worse of the Avengers movies.
