“Whatever it takes” became the popular saying before every decision was made. “Marvel Avengers: Endgame,” directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, has finally been released. After a year of teasers, trailers and fake leaks, the conclusion of the infinity gauntlet arc has arrived.

Being a Marvel film, the first 30 minutes of the three-hour film is dedicated to backstories and where the Avengers are after the ‘vanishing’ occurred. The dreaded ‘vanishing’ was so named after Thanos used the six most powerful stones in the universe to erase half of the universe at the end of “Avengers: Infinity War”.

The remaining Avengers decide to save everyone or at least avenge the fallen by taking on Thanos once again with the aim of undoing what Thanos did. This journey is what fuels both the comedic and heartbreaking moments of Endgame.

The general plotline and presentation of the script were flawless. The subtle humor Marvel fans love gave everyone in the theaters, including me, a chance to breathe after all the suffering and anguish each Avenger dealt with on their own.

Being a Marvel film that involved everything from space travel to Thanos himself, there was almost no scene in the film that didn’t use computer-generated imaging (CGI). With such a large use of CGI, Marvel was forced to outsource some of the work to third-party companies. Thankfully this didn’t affect the movie’s overall quality.

The directors and cast as a whole sent out a public letter to address their viewers to avoid spoiling any aspect of the movie. This movie holds a deep and significant meaning to Marvel fans, so it goes without saying that you should resist every temptation to spoil Endgame for anyone.

Overall, the film was amazing and felt truly satisfying at the end, which gave room for Marvel to add more movies to the series. I can’t help but give this movie a five out five star rating for the sheer quality and the time I spent enjoying the film. Prepare your boxes of tissues because you will need them.
