‘Avengers: Endgame’ is a must see


“Avengers: Endgame” is an emotional roller coaster. It is the best and worst movie I’ve ever seen. I loved and hated it.

I am a die-hard fan. I absolutely love Marvel and anything they create. I have seen all the Marvel movies and TV shows multiple times. I grew up watching them all, and really, they are my childhood. They have always brought me happiness, a fact that made me hesitant to go see the movie because this is supposed to be the end of this phase. My curiosity out weighed my worry, and so I decided to go. Normally, I never buy tickets to see a movie in theaters, I usually wait until they go to discs, but for “Avengers: Infinity War” and “Avengers: Endgame” I bought two tickets about a month ago and spent almost $30 and then spent another $30 on a souvenir popcorn bin and cup.

In the end of “Avengers: Infinity War” half of all living things in the universe had vanished. Thanos was able to get all the infinity stones, and no matter how hard or how much they wanted to, all the Marvel superheroes couldn’t save the world. But, maybe that’s the way it’s supposed to be. Dr. Strange did see all the outcomes and then gave Thanos the time stone.

“Endgame” starts off exactly where “Infinity War” left off, right at the snap, right where everyone starts to disappear. Everyone’s there, everyone that hasn’t disappeared that is, and they all want their vanished comrades back so bad that they are willing to do anything. So, with the help from Captain Marvel, they believe they can get the stones from Thanos and bring everyone back. This movie is ultimately about their effort to do just that.

While watching the beginning of “Endgame,” I thought that it was great and that it would continue to be great throughout the movie. But, I don’t think it did. Only when It got to almost the end fight scene did everything go back to great. Sure the entire movie was good, but there were just some parts of the movie that no one could have guessed. Some parts that I, a Marvel fan for my entire life, could have never thought of. Things I never would have believed Marvel creators would ever do.

When I went to see “Infinity War” last year, I was laughing a lot, and in the end I was crying in the theater. Yes, “Endgame” had some funny parts, some dealing with Steve Roger’s butt, but there weren’t as many funny parts as there could have been. There were many opportunities, and yet the creators went for a more serious tone. but there are many elements of fan-fiction, funny memes and tweets that people hope for in the move for every fan to love. However, there are many, many, many parts in this movie that made me and many others cry, unexpected turns that made me ball my eyes out and moving moments that made me weep.

Although I love and hate this movie, I want everyone to see it. Every Marvel fan and even somewhat Marvel fans need to see it. “Endgame” is the end, the end of an era, the end of phase three, the end of the Avengers (in one way or another), and, for more reason than one, the end of my happiness.
