AVENGERS: ENDGAME <font color=red>Spoiler-Free</font> Review; "This Isn't Just A Movie, It's An Experience"

The culmination of over a decade's worth of stories in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is finally here but does the Infinity Saga's conclusion live up to expectations? Read on for my spoiler-free verdict...

Avengers: Endgame is the greatest superhero movie of all-time.

Fact.

While there are obviously a number of releases which are arguably worthy of that title, none of them are on par with what the Russo Brothers have done here. Aside from being a perfect ending to what's become known as "The Infinity Saga," Avengers: Endgame is a thrilling, emotional, action-packed rollercoaster chock full of memorable character moments and scenes which should be any comic book fan's dream come true to see brought to the big screen in a live-action setting. 

It's hard to say much at all about the movie without giving something away you're better off not knowing before watching it for yourselves but rest assured that it delivers on all fronts. There are plenty of surprises, scenes which are destined to fill Top 10 lists breaking down the greatest ever sequences in comic book movies, and stellar performances which will ensure you fall in love with these characters all over again. Singling out someone for stealing the show is hard to do when everyone is on top form but the undeniable highlights have to be Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), Chris Evans (Captain America), Jeremy Renner (Ronin), and Mark Ruffalo (The Hulk). The latter steals the show in terms of humour and while things do get dark at times, the levity is much appreciated but never turns the superhero ensemble into a comedy. 

Josh Brolin's Thanos isn't quite the tour de force he was in Avengers: Infinity War as he takes on the role of a pretty typical bad guy in some ways here. However, he had his time to shine last year and the sequel belongs to Earth Mightiest Heroes. Captain America was shortchanged last time around but gets plenty of screentime here. Fans of new MCU addition, Captain Marvel, may end up feeling somewhat disappointed that she doesn't play a larger role in proceedings but it was a smart move to focus on the original six Avengers. 

Regardless of whether you look at Avengers: Endgame as the end of a story of the beginning of a new one (and it serves as both in many ways), it succeeds and that three-hour runtime flies by. There's no way it could or should have been any shorter and, if anything, I would have happily sat there for another thirty minutes if it meant spending more time in this world with these characters. The movie is a rousing success, a game-changer for the genre, and an adventure it's hard to imagine Marvel ever topping. However, with Kevin Feige and Marvel Studios, you know they'll do their damnedest to try. 

Avengers: Endgame is a masterpiece which not only delivers on every expectation you had but exceeds ones you didn't even think about. This isn't just a movie, it's an experience.
