‘First of all, this film is one of the best films I have ever seen. Basically, everything about it is incredible.’
Directors: Anthony Russo & Joe Russo
Starring: Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson & Jeremy Renner
Synopsis: After losing a battle which wiped out half the universe, the remaining Avengers must go back in time to collect the infinity stones before the mighty Thanos.
First of all, this film is one of the best films I have ever seen. Basically, everything about it is incredible. The creators of this film needed to think carefully about how to make it and let’s just say they did it well. The visual effects (which were nominated for an Oscar) are really great as you could almost think everything that was happening was in fact real. The story-line is probably one of the most original story-lines I have seen in a while, because who would have thought a film which combines superheroes and time-travel would be so good! But, like all films, there are some problems…
One of the problems is the length. I’m sure that this film didn’t have to be 3 hours – I think it could have easily been 2 hours 20 minutes, which is still long, but not insanely long. Also, you will definitely need to watch other Marvel films to understand this film and the characters within it. One final thing is that some of the villains are basically the same people and that shows a lack of originality. But I imagine it must be hard to think of millions of villains and making each one different.
Overall, this film is incredible but it’s probably best to watch the other Marvel films first.
Avengers: Endgame is currently available on Sky and Disney + and was rated 12A by the BBFC.
