After 11 years and 22 movies, Marvel Studios finally reaches the film they have slowly built up to with Avengers: Endgame. This conclusion to their cinematic universe has been anticipated by fans for years now, and the wait is well worth it.
To recap, Avengers: Infinity War ended with Thanos acquiring all six infinity stones and snapping his fingers to erase half of all life in the universe. Now it is up to the heroes left to undo this in Avengers: Endgame, however, it is not as easy as it seems.
Marvel fans or even simply just fans of superhero movies in general will adore this movie. Although some parts feel like fan service, it is easily well deserved and are moments that the creators, as well as the fans, earned. Even if you are more of a casual fan there are plenty of great moments in this for you to enjoy. However, if you are not a big Marvel fan, or have never even seen their previous movies, then there will be a lot of bits to follow.
There is never a slow moment in Endgame that allows you to take a break. If you even make a quick restroom break during the movie you will miss out on a big moment. The total runtime is a little over 3 hours long, and if you have not seen any of the other 21 films then you will be lost quite a lot. This does not mean that you will be unable still to enjoy the movie, the main issue is that certain plot elements will be hard to understand.
Already making over $1.2 billion during its global debut, Avengers: Endgame has smashed box office records and shows no signs of slowing down. Some analysts even predict it surpassing the $3 billion mark, which would make it the highest grossing film of all time. This is not a movie to be missed, even if it means you do some research on the previous movies to help understand it. This is the kind of movie that will take multiple viewings to catch everything you missed the first time you saw it, and although it has a lot of info to take in it is still well worth seeing in theaters.
