'Avengers: Endgame' | Spoiler-Free Film Review
The biggest takeaway from ‘Avengers: End Game’ is just how much of an emotional roller coaster it is. There are countless opportunities to laugh out loud throughout the three hour movie—our personal favorite was the line “pick a side, Lebowski”—which themselves are perfectly balanced (pun intended) by thrilling action sequences, nostalgic interludes, and genuine moments of sadness.
Despite Endgame representing the denouement of the Avengers franchise (and the 22nd film to be released by Marvel Studios for the Marvel Cinematic Universe) the movie itself is also surprisingly self-contained. The only thing anybody would have to know going into the film is that Thanos snapped his fingers at the end of the last installment and half of all living things vanished into dust.
Speaking of Thanos, his arc is presented most masterfully of all, far more unexpected and complex than anyone could’ve reasonably guessed. And as of this moment there’s a brilliant Easter Egg on Google celebrating the opening of ‘Avengers: End Game.’ Google “Thanos” then click on the Gauntlet icon containing the infinity stones on the right hand side of the screen. Enjoy.
