When a story begins, there has to inevitably be an end. Not even the eleven year, twenty-two movie saga that is the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) is immune to such end. After the events of Avengers: Infinity War, our beloved heros are left empty, heartbroken, and defeated. The giant purple tyrant that is Thanos fulfilled every last goal he set out to do. And now, with half of the population in all of the universe dead, we pick up with our heroes with Avengers: Endgame.

After 22 days adrift in space, Tony Stark and Nebula are rescued by the Avengers newest member, Captain Marvel. Once arriving on Earth, the remaining members quickly track down Thanos to a distant and isolated planet, where life is teeming. The team planned on using the infinity stones to restore the life that the stones took.  Once they arrive, the Avengers are shocked to see the state of Thanos. He has been severely injured on the right half of his body, and moving seems to be of some difficulty. Furthermore, the purple giant describes how he destroyed the infinity stones stones in order to “balance out the galaxy,” resulting in his current physical state. Thor, hearing enough, decapitates Thanos, seemingly drowning what little hope that remained to save the lost heroes.

With the stones destroyed, there was seemingly nothing to be done. Hope seems forever lost until five years later when Ant-Man, (played by Scott Lang) presumed dead, emerges from the depths of the quantum realm. Trapped during a test run, Lang experienced the last five years in just merely five hours, returning to normal size to find his daughter grown and matured. Bewildered and concerned, Ant-Man heads to the Avengers base to share what new knowledge he had just obtained, as well as some ideas.

This discovery would spring load a new plan, with new hopes. Sending the Avengers on a scavenger hunt through time to find the infinity stones before Thanos, and to restore the trillions of lives lost. Revisiting old movies, encountering old characters, and finding new influences in ways that may have been under our noses the entire time.

All this comes to a head in a finale that only Marvel could pull off. A grand display of the culmination of 22 films, the ending was both satisfactory to the story as a whole, but also unique to each individual character. Ending a plethora of overarching story arcs in one major display.

In all, the movie was almost perfect. From the first minute to the last, every detail was planned out in a way that was eleven years in the making. In this time frame, we were given the incredible privilege of watching our favorite heros mature, bond, and overcome. This cinematic experience was truly unlike any other. It was an epic climax and resolution for one of the most amazing film series in cinematic history.

Once thought to be impossible, Disney and Marvel have proven to the world what impact our favorite superheros can have on the big screen, both singularly in their own films and united in the Avengers films. So with that, the film is a 5/5, 10/10, certified fresh, whatever you wanna give it. No movie is perfect, but the impact made by this film is more than a few mistakes.
