Avengers: Endgame is 2 days away and it literally is the right time to leave social media, disable Youtube, and block those idiot friends who you think cannot keep their stupid mouths shut. The movie releases in China today and that brings up a very high chance of key plot points being leaked all over the internet. The world premiere has already happened, the fans have loved it and the critics are hailing this a masterpiece. So, just before you guys wipe your scent from the internet for the next 2 days, take a look at what the critics are saying about this film.
— Rotten Tomatoes (@RottenTomatoes) April 23, 2019
The reviews of critics are coming in pretty quick, and Avengers: Endgame has already debuted with a 98% score on Rotten Tomatoes. It currently stands on 96% with 106 reviews being counted, and the great part about it is that everyone in the world is loving the film. The fans are claiming for it to be nothing like we’ve ever seen, as this film closes the first story of the MCU extremely well, and it builds upon that even more.
This is a masterpiece created by Marvel, Joe & Anthony Russo, Christopher Markus, and Stephen McFeely, Kevin Feige & Louis D’esposito. Without any further ado, let’s get onto the critical reviews and see what the various websites and media companies all around the world are saying about this film:
Brandon Davis – Comicbook.com
“The final movie in Marvel’s Infinity Saga is a masterpiece. It’s an absolute spectacle which needs to be watched on the biggest screen possible. It’s a love letter to fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In fact, I’d argue that Avengers: Endgame is the film event of our lifetime and lives up to every bit of global hype it has garnered. It is setting a new standard and raising the bar for event films and likely will not be matched in this generation of filmmaking.”
Eric Kohn – Indiewire
“Endgame mostly unfolds as a prolonged embrace of the long-term challenges facing its beloved mainstays, like Banner’s ability to merge his meek-scientist persona with the raging testosterone monster within, and Thor’s lingering grief over his departed mother. (Here and there, Bradley Cooper’s Rocket Raccoon scores a good laugh, but the potential of this cartoony troublemaker remains unfulfilled.) Alan Silvestri’s epic score keeps the plot moving through various overlapping circumstances, but Endgame works best in small doses of the greatest hits — at least until the Russos throw up their hands and bring together every possible strand for a cacophonous showdown. Amid the noisy CGI of the final-act battle, there are plenty of rousing moments — but they’re all fragmentary, with payoffs according to the level of viewer investment. Newcomers to the series may as well be watching a Transformers movie.”
Peter Debruge – Variety
“That said, readers should also be warned that “Avengers: Endgame” hinges on the most frustrating of narrative tricks, and that no meaningful analysis of the film can take place without delving into some of the choices made by the Russo brothers and screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely. If “Infinity War” was billed as a must-see event for all moviegoers, whether or not they’d attended a single Marvel movie prior, then “Endgame” is the ultimate fan-service follow-up, so densely packed with pay-offs to relationships established in the previous films that it all but demands that audiences put in the homework of watching (or rewatching) a dozen earlier movies to appreciate the sense of closure it offers the series’ most popular characters.”
Michael Rogeau – Gamespot
“Avengers: Endgame absolutely works as a blockbuster movie experience. If you’re at all invested in the plight the remaining Avengers face after the events leading up to and including Infinity War, you will feel satisfied with this movie. The much-discussed three-hour runtime is no joke, but almost every minute of it is used well, barring some extended gag scenes that probably could have been left for the Blu-ray. Endgame manages to tie the entire MCU up with a beautiful, emotional, gut-wrenching, hopeful conclusion, which is an undeniable achievement.”

Todd McCarthy – The Hollywood Reporter
“Nonetheless, it’s an amiable brand of melancholy that pervades the film, one that scarcely gets in the way of the enthusiasm and excitement that Marvel adventures almost always deliver in some measure or another. The feeling of finality and potential farewell is sometimes suggested quietly just in the way certain moments are lingered over, conveying the fatalistic sense that this might well be the last time around the block for some of these characters. At the rate it’s going, Marvel will be around for the better part of forever, but this will likely be the studio swan song for a number of the cast members.”
Avengers: Endgame releases on April 26.
