The End is upon us and how sweet, and emotionally draining it is…
For me, from the minute Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) hit the big screen, my evolution into the Marvel Universe had begun. I was drawn in not only from the hotness he exuded in 2008, but by my intense infatuation with a real SUPER HERO – whose brains were just as valuable as his brawn, as his ever expanding ingenuity forges a way for him to become my favorite, IRON MAN, thus, thrusting me into the grasp of the almighty Marvel Universe. And then just to make sure that I wasn’t going anywhere, MCU brings the brave, valiant and no longer frozen in time CAPTAIN AMERICA (Chris Evans) onto the scene, solidifying the destiny of MARVEL, not only for me, but for everyone else fortunate enough to experience what the MCU had in store, as we have followed these two, and so many more beloved Marvel Superheroes literally anywhere they would take us.
And now, 22 films later, the much-awaited AVENGERS: END GAME has finally arrived, and, as I totally expected, they have saved The Best for Last.
Writers Christopher Marcus and Stephen McFeely bring to the table some very personal, and intertwined storylines for this film, as they have unmistakably found a way to make us adore these characters, each and every one of them, even more than we have before.
And what makes this final entry an even more exciting and intense journey too, is the fact that each of our favorite superheroes involved (including Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Bruce Banner/Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), and Captain Marvel (Brie Larson) has totally brought their A- game for this Last Hoorah, as the acting across the board, is the best it’s ever been. Anthony and Joe Russo should be receiving accolades galore for the way they developed the most exciting MARVEL creation yet, as you find yourself watching in anticipation to see if our lost Superhero friends will able to make a triumphant return, or if our friends that Thanos spared in Infinity War, have met with their final destiny too. And please don’t let the 3 hours+ scare you off from catching this film, repeatedly, at a theater near you, as I can attest that once this film starts, its seems like no time at all has passed, as you become mesmerized by the powerful intenseness of what is happening right before your very eyes…
Never in my wildest dreams had I imaged that a Marvel movie would bring me to tears, but, yep, you guessed it, as film even managed to make me sob like a little school girl, before it was through. Make no mistake, AVENGERS: END GAME will be the BLOCKBUSTER of the SUMMER, it may even become the BLOCKBUSTER of 2019, as I don’t even think the next STAR WARS installment, can put a dent in what you are about to see. This truly is one of those very special film experiences that you will keep with you for a very, very long time….
And, now that I shared my thoughts, it’s no surprise that, I rate AVENGERS: END GAME a MUST SEE ON THE BIG SCREEN, and suggest that you do this numerous times over!!!
