Avengers: Endgame

Avengers: Endgame ★★★★½

Avengers: Endgame isn't at all what I expected. At the same time it's (almost) everything I hoped for.

Talking about this movie without spoiling anything is even harder than it was the case with its predecessor. Both are very different films. I love that Endgame takes its time to let the events of Infinity War sink in. Feige & Co. threw the 21st century blockbuster rule book, which they had a major part in establishing it, out of the window and gave Endgame the room to breathe, to built towards the epic conclussion that it needed to be. What seemed as an all but impossible task, Endgame pulled off bringing deeply satisfying closure to many of the stories that began eleven years ago.

Throughout the film the entire audience was gasping, cheering, applauding. Never before have I seen anything like this happening. Touted as the pop cultural event of our time, Endgame did the impossible and followed through on its herculean promise.
