I’m going to start this off by mentioning how much of a Marvel nerd I am. As an individual who has seen all of the 22 movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe leading up to Avengers: Endgame, one could come to the conclusion that I was extremely excited to watch the long-awaited finale.

I had been studying the movies, looking up possible theories and even buying Marvel merchandise in anticipation. I was expecting to be completely blown away and have the series come to an amazing end. Not only were my expectations met, they were shattered.

I am going to be mentioning a few key scenes featured in Endgame, so if you have not seen it yet, this is a SPOILER WARNING, TURN BACK NOW.

For those of you still left, I will admit that the beginning of the movie started off slow with the Avengers finally meeting Thanos again, who seems to have slowly disintegrated (no pun intended) by using the Infinity Stones multiple times.

This scene stuck out to me because it did not seem to fit the usual mold into how Marvel handles big scenes in the Universe. This scene seemed a little rushed considering these superheroes were meeting the one that wiped out half of all life in the universe earlier in Avengers: Infinity War.

Another instance of a rushed storyline was during the scenes in which the Avengers were planning to get the Infinity Stones back through time travel. It seemed as though Tony Stark unlocked the key to time travel in the middle of the night. These collection of scenes seemed to provide little background to what Tony was working on, and in turn left me wanting to know more.

Although there were some moments that did not particularly stand out to me as great, those moments were triumphed with moments of greatness. For example, when Captain America grabbed ahold of Thor’s hammer, Mjolnir, I almost cried. When the group of women in the MCU came to protect Spider-Man from Thanos’ army, I almost stood out of my seat. When we saw Steve Rogers living out his life with Peggy Carter, that actually made me cry.

Overall, the movie provides diehard fans and those looking for a fun, action packed time with a great story and ending. Not only did the movie tie up loose ends within the MCU, it left some questions to be asked, hopefully in later movies. As a super fan, I had a great time watching the movie, and I cannot wait for Spiderman: Far From Home to arrive in theaters in July.
