The only risk that Avengers: Endgame had was to make the actual movie better than the hype. Let me tell you that the hype and the year wait was definitely worth it. If you think about human emotions, this movie made me feel all of them. I was nervous, scared, excited, laughing, and crying. (First time a tear fell from my eye in a movie)
Since there are so many things I liked about Avengers: Endgame let’s start on what I did not like.
What I didn’t like
So Antman was stuck in the Quantum Realm because the Pym family was gone thanks to Thanos’ snap. I was really curious and excited to see how Antman was going to come back. Marvel’s response to this was, let’s just make a rat press a button by accident in the middle of a garage in the middle of nowhere. Really Marvel? Really?
Fat and lazy Thor. I get it, Marvel wanted to balance Thor in the MCU after being “the strongest” in Thor: Ragnarok and Infinity: War but from being the strongest to a fat, lost, drunk man just didn’t seem right.
After Thor “failing” everyone in Infinity War by not killing Thanos, Thor felt like he disappointed everyone. So Thor decided to not be Thor anymore and simply drink, grow his beard and get fat.
It was kind of upsetting to see such a long (and deserved) funeral for Tony Stark but not to see a funeral or a longer, emotional moment for Black Widow. She’s such a great character and her death felt like it didn’t matter
The plot. I didn’t expect the plot from Endgame to be about going to the past and getting all the stones before Thanos. Absolutely LOVED the plot but the way that they executed it felt kind of slow. It needed more climax and emotional moments for that specific part of the plot to be stronger. I was simply expecting more from that but the ending made up for it.
Opening Song. Right after Hawkeye’s family gets turned into ashes; the opening titles played ‘Dear Mr. Fantasy’ which is a song that didn’t really fit the movie in my opinion. It was simply a pretty happy song for such a sad opening of the film. If Star Lord would have an appearance after that song it would make sense but guess what… he didn’t.
Groot had 3 lines of script and I was not happy with that. Groot fans will understand.
Yup. That’s it. Those are the ONLY aspects of the film that I did not like. Let’s get in to what I loved about the film. Get some snacks because there’s so much to talk about.
What I loved.
Avengers: Endgame is not a movie; it’s a tribute to the fans that have lived with the characters of the MCU for over 10 years. This film was for those type of fans, not only the fans that have watch every single MCU film but have watched all of them more than 5 times. Here’s everything I liked about the film.
By far, my favorite part of the film was the battle scene because it made you think how far the MCU has actually come. It was epic, there was over 50 characters in that battle, the heroes who we thought were gone came back; Spiderman, Starlord, Groot, Dr. Strange, Black Panther, and EVERYONE. I loved seeing Pepper wearing an Iron Man suit, the action was insane, the humor was on point, the scenery looked incredible, EVERYTHING about that scene was breathtaking.
The characters were very well drawn. Once again Marvel after Infinity War, brought us a film with a bunch of important characters and making most characters relevant. Bravo Marvel!
Unpredictable. I was at the edge of the seat the whole time because I had no idea what was going to happen in the next scene. Plot was totally unpredictable which made the film more interesting. I didn’t expect Black Widow’s death; I seriously thought it was going to be Hawkeye. Captain America going to the past and marrying his true love was beautiful and Tony’s death was also unpredictable.
Tony’s death. As I was saying, Tony’s death was very unpredictable. The character that we’ve all loved died, yes it’s sad and yes I don’t know how I’m going to continue with my life now that Iron Man won’t be in future Marvel films. His death added a lot of emotion to the conclusion of the film and a great climax to finish it off.
Captain America’s legacy. I would have been really mad if Marvel decided to kill both Captain America and Iron Man, so I really liked how they treated the ending with Captain America. All the films that Captain America has been part of, there has always been references to Peggy Carter, portraying their true love with one another. Cap has always been in love with her and living a life with her has always been his dream. What Marvel decided to do with Cap had so much emotion, it also made the film have a great ending. Captain America has left a legacy that will live forever.
Captain Marvel. After all the Brie Larson drama, what most people did not want was Captain Marvel not to be an Avenger and not to be so important in the MCU. People also wanted Marvel to make her important slowly. While I don’t share this opinion, I loved the way the Captain Marvel appeared in the film. Captain Marvel saving Tony Stark in the beginning was phenomenal, her “non earthly” personality suits her a lot and at the end when she joins the battle was also epic. Overall I’m happy with the way they used her and I hope people start liking her character more since she’s my second favorite MCU character.
Hawkeye. Hawkeye played a pretty large role in this film. We’ve never really seen him having a big role but he’s huge in Endgame. Can’t wait to see what Marvel decides to do with him in the new series coming to Disney+.

Without a doubt, Avengers: Endgame is one of the best films of the 21st century and my favorite movie I’ve ever seen. As I said earlier it’s a tribute to the fans, it’s a movie FOR the fans. I’m going to rate Endgame a rating that I’ve never rated before but this movie simply deserves it. The middle of the film was not perfect but the ending made it worth it.
I’m so happy that one day I’ll be able to tell my kids that I watched Avengers: Endgame at the cinema.
