Non-Spoiler Review for Avengers: Endgame - A Marvel-ous End to the Infinity Saga

For the last 10 years, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has built an amazing galaxy filled with heroes, as well as villains. This galaxy has changed the film world forever. Though our heroes and villains have powers that none of us will ever have, they all have real issues and problems that we can all relate to. This made all of these characters feel believable, feel real.

Now, after last year's impactful Avengers: Infinity War, there is nothing that can prepare you for the conclusion of the Infinity Saga, Avengers: Endgame. Heeding the warning of Marvel Studios, there will be no spoilers here. But know that even if I tried to explain all that happens in this movie, we would be here all day.

The trailers truly give away nothing away and once you see the movie, I invite you to go back and see where the filmmakers made decisions to misdirect you or to not reveal certain characters or plot points. These surprises are truly special and are moments that we as fans have always wanted or never knew that we wanted. But once we see these moments, we will be talking about them for years to come.

The Russo Brothers and the screenwriters had the difficult task to top Infinity War and to stick the landing, but they have woven a story that delivers one of the most satisfying endings in film history. The combination of humor, action and emotion makes this one of the best films of the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe. The time we have invested in getting to know these characters and follow their story arcs as they have grown pays off in the most amazing ways possible. By the end of the film we learn more about what we have seen over the last 21 movies and even gives hints into the future and Phase 4. All of the performances are brilliant and some of the best ever for all of these actors. As fans, we get closure to some of the storylines that started in some of the individual films.

Robert Downey Jr. brings one his finest performances as Tony Stark, bringing emotion and heart into his role. Chris Evans as Steve Rogers puts in another strong performance, delivering on heart every step of the way. Humor is provided by both Paul Rudd and Chris Hemsworth.

There is so much more to this movie but discussing it would only lead into spoiler territory. Literally every fan theory including my own were thrown out in the first minutes of the film. Avoid spoilers at all costs and please do not spoil it for others.

Whatever it takes, go see Avengers: Endgame when opens in theaters April 26th.

Avenge The Fallen.
