Critic Reviews for Avengers: Endgame

All Critics (477) | Top Critics (53)

  • What you will be getting when you walk into an inevitably overstuffed movie theater is something singular that reflects our age in a way that none of the MCU films that preceded it have-indeed, very few Hollywood spectacles ever have.

  • The only complaint about Avengers: Endgame is that it raises the bar so high that there may well never be a superhero movie to match it.

  • What's missing from "Endgame" is the free play of imagination, the liberation of speculation, the meandering paths and loose ends that start in logic and lead to wonder.

  • The MCU will go on and on, but this chapter - and the American pragmatism vs. American ideals bromance that drove it - have well and truly come to their "Excelsior! Nuff said!" moment.

  • Endgame consists almost entirely of the downtime scenes that were always secretly everyone's favorite parts of these movies anyway.

  • It's overdone and bombastic. A fitting end, in other words, to a franchise cycle of insatiable commercial ambition...and thundering creative swagger.

Audience Reviews for Avengers: Endgame

    Hey, so, just some really quick thoughts I wanna get down, 'cause it's after 1 o'clock in the morning, and I wanna get some sleep so I can wake up well rested to see Endgame again. Putting it out there right from the get-go, Avengers: Endgame is my favourite MCU movie. It's my favourite movie of the year too, but I've only seen like ten or so 2019 releases, and this is the 22nd Marvel Cinematic Universe film, so that seems far and away the bigger deal. I can't say it's perfect, there's some conflicting stuff within its own runtime that really doesn't seem to gel (though a re-watch may prove me wrong on that), and it's not like every moment was the no-holds-barred-zero-exception best version of that moment from start to end. But God I loved this thing. I will say this though, the reason that I loved it, is this thing is fan service galore. If you do not care for the franchise's 21 movies preceding this point, then Endgame is not the movie to turn you around on that. That may come in a future installment, but this one is a culmination. It's the end of Infinity War but also Phase 3, but also a wrap-up and genuine ode to/send off for everything that Marvel has done over the past 11 years. That to me was incredible, and I am eternally greatful, but I cannot imagine it working for people who have no vested interest in these characters. To me though? My first 9 out of 10 rating in three years.

    Avengers: Endgame ripped my heart out - it was so emotional. I watched this 3 times, and still choke when it gets to the end. The cast is outstanding, and it is hard to single anyone out. For me, Gwyneth Paltrow and Tom Holland gave the most poignant and touching performances. A perfect end to this chapter and an Oscar-worthy performance, And I still say this - Kevin Feige is a genius. Robert Downey Jr deserves a Best Actor Oscar, the cast deserve Best Ensemble, the Russo Brothers Best Directors. And, Avengers: Endgame deserves a Best Film nomination as well. Simply brilliant!

    As I was driving home from seeing Avengers: Endgame I was passed by someone I recognized as a co-worker. On the back of his car was an "infowars.com" bumper sticker, and I wondered if he talks about fluoride turning frogs gay and reptilian humanoids drinking the pineal glands of newborn infants with the other bus mechanics. I imagine that would be a little bit embarrassing to actually converse about, almost as embarrassing as I might feel when discussing superhero movies at work. But why should I feel ashamed of it? When people I work with talk about movies, it's never about Barry Jenkins' latest rumination on the trials and tribulations of Black America or what won the Palme d'Or that year. No, it's always capeshit, and when they talk about it they usually don't say anything beyond whether they liked it or not. I never hear if they can see parallels to current international politics in Iron Man's authoritarian leanings or the Malthusian roots of Thanos' murderous motives. It's more "I liked it when character X fought character Y, and character Z made a quip that amused me." Really, there's no harm in that. These movies do have some degree of political and philosophical subtext, but they aren't rich pieces of illustrated literature that warrant some voluminous dissection. Most people who have followed along with Kevin Feige's grand-sweeping film empire have done so not to expand their realm of experience and perception but to get their dose of mindless spectacle. The reason why it's embarrassing for me to talk about these films in any serious way is because it says a lot of a person who would sit three hours for something they obviously dislike. I could have rewatched Barry Lyndon or La Dolce Vita, but any self-respect I might have had is out the window after willingly subjecting myself to it all knowing full well I'm probably going to dislike it. It's amazing also that general audiences can get through the first hour alone with its glacial pace and weepy dreariness. Just like the first two episodes of the final season of "Game of Thrones" it is comprised of people standing around and droopily talking to each other about how hopeless everything is, then the weepy music perks up when all the people you forgot were still alive meet each other again. Huzzah, m'lady! I would argue this sort of dynamic works well for HBO's flagship fantasy series because a) there's a palpable mise-en-scène while the endless glut of characters don't just unceremoniously emerge and disappear from the background like whack-a-mole, and b) the show is comprised of hour long episodes so the start/stop momentum of broader narrative arcs is excusable. I think I might have really enjoyed the Marvel "Cinematic" Universe if it had stayed where it belongs: on television. When it slows down it's pure tedium, and when it speeds up it's like a cartoon chipmunk hitting me in the nuts with a clown hammer. I could see myself loving it if it were a farce, but the tone is entirely dependent on which character inhabits the frame. It doesn't seem that bad while watching because we're conditioned to accept this scattershot melee of ideas after 20 movies of Ritalin-snorting chaos. Granted, it's a tighter wrapped package than the new Star Wars or the live-action Disney remakes, but that's a pretty low bar in the first place. What we're left here with is space-"Bonanza". Broadly painted American ideals like faith in authoritarian power structures, "the good guys have the greater good at heart", a nuclear family is the most fulfilling ideal possible, etc. are the implied hope of all character arcs. Then there's a checklist of one-off progressive ideals - the movie's only gay character is casually accepted in conversation during his lone scene, a white man relinquishes his power and privilege to a black woman, and, despite 85% of the action occurring between buff, Caucasian dudes, there's that one sequence where every female character happens to be on screen together. "You go girls! Even you, jade vagina-egg-peddling Iron Woman!" None of these shoe-horned, faux-gressive add-ons are inherently bad, their presence just seems so ham-fisted since it's obviously an afterthought and entirely beside the point. Well, these are all totally different issues that could be unpacked at a different time, but that's what I mean when I talk about a clown hammer to my nuts. Maybe I should be thankful that a major studio has the audacity to test the limits of good faith with its audience. Maybe I should be thankful that this is (hopefully) the consummate end of another era of blockbuster bombast. I'm still bitter that this movie eats up box office receipts while independent cinema languishes in obscurity in failing art-houses barely populated by retirees and the idle intelligentsia. "But movies like this are HELPING those small markets" blah blah blah. Ask Kansas City's historic Tivoli theater about how much help the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been for them. That's right, you can't because they closed, and there's no time traveling deus ex machina to resurrect that one. In conclusion, I'm embarrassed I saw this movie, and one of my co-workers thinks that Sandy Hook was a hoax.

    Both more intimate and bigger than Infinity War, the film meets expectations as much as it is busting them. You probably shouldn't think too hard about some parts and there are certainly some polarizing decisions in the first half. But then the film celebrates its predecessors and its fans, rewarding those who paid close attention for over ten years. A touching, funny, surprising and most importantly worthy goodbye to this phase of modern popcorn cinema. What a ride it's been. Edit: Gets half a star more after the second round, where the plot holes, open questions and inconsistencies didn't bother me as much once the full fledged fan fest was in full swing. Never has a film been more unwatchable and incoherent for the unknowing, yet a dream come true for the rest.
