Wow! Wow! Wow! Marvel has thrown everything they have into this film including 350 to 400 million dollars to make this film. Since Marvel has been at movie making in 2008, they have made 21 films based on Marvel comics and had ticket sales of approximately 18.6 billion dollars. “Avengers: Endgame” is positioned to become the highest grossing film of all time. I fully expect them to recover their production costs and make a huge profit on “Avengers: Endgame.” I think it is the best Marvel film made to date.
When we last saw “Avengers: Infinity War,” the Avengers lost the war and Thano won and was able to shape the universe which meant the disappearance of a quarter of
Earth’s population. The Avengers assemble once again and enlist their allies to try to undo Thano’s actions and restore the universe.
Marvel has brought back all the stars we are used to seeing in Marvel movies. Robert Downey, Jr. is Iron Man. Gwenth Paltrow is Pepper Potts. Gorgeous Chris Evans is Captain America. Mark Ruffalo is Hulk and plays most of the movie as a hulking green giant. Chris Hemsworth really needs to shave and go on a diet as an aging Thor. Scarlett Johansson is back as the Black Widow. Jeremy Renner reprises his role as Hawkeye. Paul Rudd is Ant Man. Karen Gillan is Nebula and Don Cheadle is War Machine. Josh Brolin is the evil Thano. The list of characters goes on and on.
The clever script was written by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely based on the Marvel comics by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby and the comic book by Jim Starlin. The script has numerous one liners that keep the audience laughing. “Avengers: Endgame” was directed by Anthony and Joe Russo.
The CGI, (computer generated imagery), is absolutely astounding as one would expect of a Marvel movie. The credits were almost as long as the movie which lasted over three hours. Don’t worry, the time goes fast.
I recommend that people re-watch the last few Avenger movies before going. I have seen all the Marvel movies but as I watched, I kept thinking:”Oh, yes, I forgot that.” This is a fun movie and Marvel aficionados will want to see this over and over and so will I. I think this film needs to be viewed several times to catch all the innuendos.
Don’t walk, run to this film! But if you don’t like crowds, you may want to wait a couple of weeks. This film will be around that long.
