Avengers: End Game
Avengers: End Game, An Epic Finale
Movie Review by G. Swetha (Rocheston Certified Movie Critic)
Directed by Antony Russo and Joe Russo, Avengers: End Game is a box office game changer that concludes 22 marvelous movies from Marvel Studios. After Thanos had snapped out about half of Earth’s population; Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) and Nebula are stuck in space without food and Tony’s suit is just about to switch off. Captain Marvel saves the cast-away Tony and Nebula. While the Avengers try to catch their breath, a replay video clip of Ant-man from the past is seen by Natasha and he eventually comes back from the quantum realm.
The movie picks up speed as Captain America, Hulk, Iron Man, Black Widow, Hawkeye and Thor along with Ant Man, Nebula, War Machine and Rocket Raccoon team up to time travel to the past to restore the six stones and bring back half of the population that was wiped off. Ant-man plays a key role in bringing the possibility of time travel through the quantum realm to light, even when the Avengers lose hope. Iron man backs off as he does not want to disappoint his family. Unfortunately, the initial experiments with Ant Man fail, and Iron Man decides to join the team; under one condition – that in the end, he must survive. They put their minds together to figure out time travel.
Action-packed with their superpowers, the Avengers make the hearts of the audience crave for more, time and again. The scene, where Captain America wields Thor’s axe and bucks up against Thanos giving his fullest of efforts was especially worth the cheers and claps. Together they beat Thanos and his battalion blowing the minds of the audience. A different version of Thor is experimented in this movie. There is a special slot for the women superheroes, who not only fight equally alongside their male counterparts but are sometimes, even stronger. The spirit of togetherness is displayed every now and then all through the movie.
The storyline is a blend of comedy, emotion and ofcourse surplus action. Cinematography is craftly mastered by Trent Opaloch. The key strength of this movie is its placement of the characters. Each character is given fullest importance in this movie. Everyone has a role to play and they all do it well. In an effort to showcase even the smallest detail, the movie is a bit of a drag towards the end. This movie is best watched in 3D where the CGI editing and effects by Jeffrey Ford and Matthew Schmidt can be best experienced. The background score by Alan Silvestri elevates the movie to a surreal plateau – only to be experienced. There are a lot of goosebumps moments that were possible with such brilliant background music.
Overall the movie was “marvel”ous – a must watch. Since “Avengers: End Game” is the last installment in the series, the much awaited post credits section is a little different.
