Welcome to the new part in our MCU series. Last time we analyzed Avengers: Age of Ultron, but now we’ll take a closer look at Avengers: Endgame which topped the box office for weeks and became the highest-grossing movie ever (almost $3 billion), pushing Cameron’s Avatar off the top spot. Let’s see if it’s worth all the hype after a rewatch (watch out for spoilers!)

Avengers: Endgame Rewatch

The Good

It’s still an epic, action-packed roller coaster of a ride

Even after a rewatch, the movie still packs a powerful punch in terms of action scenes and visual effects. Some may argue that the storyline is not as compelling as the last iteration in the series. But still, Endgame is making up for that by providing you with out-of-this-world CGI that’s keeping you glued to the screen literally for hours.  

The film is full of secrets, and Easter Eggs

If you analyzed all the previous movies in the franchise, you’d likely spot a few significant hints and “aha” moments that will elude the casual moviegoer. These are related to Howard Stark, Tony’s father, the shattering of Captain America’s shield, and also to strange characters appearing at Tony’s funeral at the end of the movie (I told you to watch out for spoilers!)

The Bad

There wasn’t a post-credits scene

What was strange about “Endgame” is that unlike all the other movies in the series, it didn’t have a post-credits scene. It’s almost like not having a casino scene in a James Bond movie. You could only hear the sound of Tony Stark working on his first suit in the very first Ironman movie. However, a post-credits scene strangely appeared in the newest trailer to Spider-Man: Far From Home (watch out as it contains spoilers!).

The all-powerful Thor became a blob bro-Thor

After Thanos eradicated half of life in the universe in Infinity War, Thor fell into a deep depression and let himself go physically. In the new release, we mostly see the blood-son of Odin not as a mighty warrior dropping memorable one-liners, but as a wretched loser stranded on the outskirts of earth. Yes, it’s funny, but it’s also embarrassing.

Overall

There is no denying the fact that the movie was utterly epic. With a run time of three hours and two minutes, it’s a dream come true for MCU fans lusting for a summer blockbuster. Yes, Endgame has its flaws, but they are minor and forgivable when assessing the movie in all its glory.
