After 20-something movies, nonstop action and superheroes doing superhero things, "Avengers: Endgame" concludes the saga -- that is, until the studios decide to make more anyhow.
After the shocking events of "Avengers: Infinity War," in which Thanos wiped out half of the human population, the remaining Avengers team up, and attempt to undo Thanos' inhumane actions. Together, Captain America, Iron Man, Black Window, Thor, The Hulk, Hawkeye, Ant-Man, War Machine, Nebula, Rocket and Captain Marvel will attempt the impossible to bring peace back to a broken world.
It's pretty difficult to discuss "Avengers: Endgame" without spoiling anything, unless you've been on the internet within the last week, in which case, you may have been spoiled already. The movie is so huge that it's best to just go see it as soon as you can.
"Endgame" has that finality and climactic feel to it, like when you watch the final season of your favorite TV series. It wraps up characters' plot lines, gives you some heartfelt goodbyes and, of course, breaks your heart in many ways.
The actors perform well as these beloved characters, but that's not news to you if you've seen the previous 20 films. Robert Downey Jr., in particular, has done a spectacular job portraying Iron Man, with his cocky humor and self-centeredness, while still portraying him as a human being with a big heart.
As with previous Marvel films, the humor is plentiful. Paul Rudd's Ant-Man and the Guardians of the Galaxy are among the funniest.
While "Infinity War" played more on shock value, "Endgame" has a refreshing use of humor and pathos.
While many scenes are played for laughs and light-heartedness, others attempt to make you nervous about the characters you love.
The build-up to the climax of "Avengers: Endgame" takes some time and can even drag a certain points.
However, if you're a huge fan of this series, that won't make much of a difference once you get to the huge payoff.
The climactic action sequence is one of the most thrilling scenes in years.
If you go see "Avengers: Endgame" for one reason, that should be it.
Best character: Rocket, because he's a sassy raccoon
