The movie theaters were filled with the release of Avengers: Endgame (2019), that culminates the story of 11 years of films about the heroes of Marvel Comics and breaking more than 144 box office records. In My Family Cinema Review we tell you, SPOILER-FREE, what we think about the movie.
The epic tale of producer Kevin Feige, president of Marvel Studios, reaches its conclusion with Avengers: Endgame, leaving a legacy of 22 interconnected films that began in 2008 and grew to become one of the most profitable franchises in history.
In addition to the appearance of many actors from the previous films of the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe), Anthony and Joe Russo return for the fourth time as directors of this Marvel Studios film, a linear sequel to Avengers: Infinity War (2018), where the villain Thanos destroys half of all living things in the universe.
In Avengers: Endgame, we see how the original group of Avengers, consisting of Captain America (Chris Evans), Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), comes together once more to deal with their defeat and to decide what to do about it.
With a duration of 3 hours, Avengers: Endgame takes on the arduous task of closing a story told over 11 years of films and the diversity of arcs and characters that have been developed through them. With a huge amount of surprises in a slow but focused first act, the film lays the foundations on which the story will unfold, leaving the next two hours free for the action and humor that characterize Marvel films.
The team of screenwriters, conformed by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, who have written the scripts for Captain America: The First Avenger (2011), Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2013), Captain America: Civil War (2016) and Avengers: Infinity War (2018), have managed to build stories that will forever stay in our minds. Moreover, in Avengers: Endgame they have given them the closure they deserve. If there is something that this movie gives us, it is a true sense of ending, with a deeply satisfying conclusion to the 21 films that precede it, in an event that will be remembered as a breaking point, not only for all the stories that Marvel Studios has yet to tell us, but for the history of film.
Avengers: Endgame is, without a doubt, one of the most important cinematographic events of our times. Under no circumstances, can you let this film pass you by.
