Hello all. I hope that you will enjoy this as I step out from my normal style of blogging to generate this review. It is not a complete break from my usual as “Lifemeaning4u” deals with mediations on aspects of life and one’s place in it. This is a growth opportunity for me to present this film review of “Marvels Avengers: End game”. There will be absolutely NO SPOILERS so don’t be concerned and I hope you will like it.
Now whether you are a fan of the superhero genre of films are not, you should like this film or shall I say “love it!” You would be in a great position if you have seen the previous Avengers’ movies as well as it’s associated films as they literally refer back to them. As you may know from the last Avengers film, the collection of all the heroes were utterly defeated by the villain Thanos and the population of the universe itself was virtually halved by the snap of his fingers as well as the use of the six infinity stones he possessed. As the film opens, the remaining heroes try to assemble to go after him with the assistance of the most recent addition to the Marvel Universe films, Captain Marvel. Of course the plan is to try and bring back their friends and associates and to exact a little payback in the process.
Suffice it to say, Thanos is a hard kill so you can expect that he will have a significant presence is this film. One aspect of the movie that carried it along was its reliance on humor and characters that were, well, out of character. Rocket of the Guardians of the Galaxy (the racoon) is central to this along with a few others that will make it well worth the price of your admission ticket. Another element of this film that will keep you in tune is the humanity of the characters that were left behind and how they deal with the loss of their loved ones and moving on with life. I found that quite endearing and I firmly believe that is why Marvel has been so successful with their films as opposed to the other comic book universe of movies. You really feel the connectedness of the characters to one another and those in their personal lives.
The film moves at a pretty good pace and you have virtually no time to rest much less get bored. The Avengers’ rich history of past films are used to further the dynamic of this one which is why I have stated earlier that you will feel well comfortable if you have seen them over the past several years. I was highly impressed as I have always been with the Avengers films to include an enormous amount of its heroes together without making you feel overwhelmed by their presence or the action taking place…and there WILL BE A LOT OF ACTION! In fact, they make you hungry for more action, more battles and more of the hero/villain confrontations. Usually this is very difficult to do as you may recall in some of the past Marvel films like Spiderman 3 where multiple villains are introduced and you feel inundated by all of the action going on. The same was felt in some of the D.C. universe of films with multiple heroes and villains present. Marvel has found a unique way of presenting so many at one time in a very cohesive way. Character relationships and how they evolve has been key to this success.
Those who see this film will not be disappointed at all as you will get more than what you are hoping for. Unfortunately we do say goodbye to a few of the central characters and there are some teary-eyed moments especially if you have bonded with them over the years. I do feel that there departure will open the door to more dimensions of the Marvel Universe and bring more interest to the superhero genre of movies. In any case, prepare yourself to run through a plethora of emotions and be amused, enthralled, excited, saddened and overall pleased with this film and your trip to the theatre with this one. Kudos for a job well done Marvel!
