The early reviews for Avengers: Endgame are here, and they’re about what you’d expect, in that they’re really, really good. Then again – should we expect anything less? After 10 years of amazing storytelling, the “finale” film should definitely be one that delivers – and it appears Endgame does.
At the time of writing this article, the movie has a 98% on Rotten Tomatoes, a higher score than Infinity War.
Check out some of the notable reviews below:
Toronto Sun: We haven’t seen anything like this before in franchise movie-making. One can only hope that the next 10 years of Marvel storytelling comes close to this.
IndieWire: As “Endgame” sputters to the finish line, it leaves the impression of witnessing a Marvel Movie Marathon compressed to three hours – and 58 seconds, but trust me, they’re disposable – of unbridled fan service
AP: More than any of those franchises, “Endgame,” at its best moments, carries the thrill of classic comic-book twists and reversals.
USA Today: If the Marvel superhero movies on the whole are your favorite band’s individual albums, “Avengers: Endgame” is the triple-disc greatest-hits package with the really awesome cover and a slew of familiar, comforting gems inside.
New York Post: You have to hand it to the directors for their ambition in bringing together a clown car full of characters into such a well-told and compelling yarn.
Consequences Of Sound: As it unfolds, the film invites you to forget about whatever you came in deciding it would be.
US Weekly: Directors Anthony and Joe Russo have somehow crafted a coherent and exhilarating epic that incorporates all your favorite superheroes (and many of their loved ones) in one emotionally resonant package.
Screen Junkies: [Joe and Anthony Russo] take every cent of capital that these movies have earned over the last 11 years & spend it in the best, most economic way you could possibly imagine.
Daily Telegraph: I can’t recall a film in this cinematic universe or any other that works as relentlessly and ingeniously to keep delighting its audience than this.
The synopsis for the MCU movie reads:
Adrift in space with no food or water, Tony Stark sends a message to Pepper Potts as his oxygen supply starts to dwindle. Meanwhile, the remaining Avengers — Thor, Black Widow, Captain America and Bruce Banner — must figure out a way to bring back their vanquished allies for an epic showdown with Thanos — the evil demigod who decimated the planet and the universe.
Avengers: Endgame hits theaters on Friday.
