    The first hour of the movie was not only slow, but whiny and maudlin.

    Sadly, I totally disagree with you. This was a terrible film from a diehard fan. Just like Star Wars, I'm done with Marvel. It was not brilliant by any means and very surprised to hear you say that. Still, good to hear that you enjoyed it.

    I agree it was cool but not as good as infinity war. Also, a very epic comic to start off with, Spiderman and Vision is an interesting combo. I bet e still has it too!

    I am not a big comic superhero guy, but I wanted to complete this movie series. I walked out of the show in the first few minutes as I could not stand Captain Marvel. That character and its portrayal simply ruined it for me. It wasn't because Marvel was a girl, but because the character was Superman with an ego bigger than the entire movie's cast.

    Glad to be done with that franchise.

    This movie is a below-average mess and given time, when all the hype fades, it will be general consensus. It's boring for 4/5 of it's length, jumpy, full of plot holes, it ridicules Thor, emasculate Hulk and so on. Great movie? Please...

    Bad movie, lazy story writting. If only captain marvel would be the only problem. They humilliated Thor, nerfed hulk, dumbed even more ant-man... this was a total mess. Unbelievable that some people believe this was a good movie capped only by captain marvel appearance alone. Horrible story with so many time travel plots. A movie to forget... oh... just forgotten and probably it would have been saved if they only have not destroyed Thor. They could have make it fight alongside captain marver for an epic super fight, I could have swallow her horrible acting if that happened. But nope. Let s make captain america become thor for whatever reason. Lazy... so lazy and stupid.

    taking two points out of a movie because of biased opinions on a single character and the actress that plays her, this is the epitome of stupidity.

  • Matthew Sharpe

    I had only two issues with Endgame - one was it mocked a bunch of often better time travel films for their plot holes - then ended up with a pile of huge time travel plot holes - some of the biggest I can think of in any film actually - but that's the problem with time travel heavy plots, you are always going to get either unresolved paradoxes or gaping plot holes & this has both in spades. Two was that awful immersion breaking girl-power scene that you just know was forced in there by some producer or PR executive - oh well at least it was over quickly. On the whole it was a pretty satisfying conclusion, but it could have been a bit better with a bit more thought put into the plot logic. I agree Thor was often a let-down, his actions and behaviour often seemed very out of character.

    As a point of contrast I really loved Natasha's hair. I thought it was a wonderful visual cue to how the past five years had affected her. In the beginning it was icy blonde and perfect, not a hair out of place. Then her roots began to show and you (the audience) could begin to see visual signs of her stress and fear. Five years later, styles/trends have changed, but she's not perfectly put together anymore. Natasha hasn't done anything to it, not colored it again, or cut it- just let the red grow back, and put it into a haphazard braid. A visual cue to her characters pain, stress, and desperation in something so simple. (Thanks for the video!) :)

    Honestly speaking for someone who claims to be such a giant fan of comics and mentioning your store more than several times, one would think you would pronounce Thanos' name correctly. Thanks for finally getting Gal Gadot's name right. Carry on.

    I like the fact that they didn’t make it all about captain marvel and she was out of the movie for a long while. But her “let me see your manager hair cut” 🤦🏻‍♂️! Also they had to have the rise of feminism scene with the hammer (no spoilers).. Overall it was an amazing movie but I’m sad for reasons you’ll find out when you all watch it. 91%

    I went and watched a double bill of infinity wars and endgame in the cinema today. It works brilliantly as a two parter film.
    First time I pretty much agree with your review.

    I feel that someone in the production made Cap SJW appear little in this for a reason. Maybe they saw she is putting fans away, OR, MAYBE, she was really really annoying in set and they're already ditching her.... lets hope.

    I was very disappointed with the ending. After a decade-long build up, the ending (last 15 minutes maybe...) was piss poor. The rest of it was actually good.
    Or maybe I'm just picky.

    I agree with you 100%. I would still rate it as a 9 but it could have been a 10 without CM and maybe more heart from Thor. I liked where they went at first with him but he should have been a little more focused after his trip to Asgard.

    ok just got back and endgame is NOT worth spoiling. it is the most screwed up marvel movie of all with glaring plot holes. i was wondering why i was seeing videos about why you shouldn't care about plot hole it was damage control for this worthless movie. i didn't even care enough to want to talk bad about it. they went heavy on the preposterous and the smothered it in lip service and a heavy helping of emotion. i also didn't care enough to watch any of the end credits .i am done with marvel i wont give them one more penny i earn.

    These are my thought's. They killed off or retired any character that would have overshadowed Brie and the next MCU phases characters. It reminds me of my love affair with the season one of the Macross saga aka (Robotech) anime from the 80s.... When that series ended with earth decimation I held my breath for what was to come after, and what came was a poorly constructed story minus my favourite characters. I don't not like this film, and I couldn't hate it if I tried too. Its a movie packed with fan service and decent send-off are I suppose.
    "But I will be retiring with my favourite characters, and not returning for more. Let's hope the DCEU and Joker film will embrace me warmly."
    It's off to the kiddies and the SJW's and whomever else the storyteller want to court

    Saw it today and it was amazing. I was kinda worried about Captain Marvel being in it too, but I didn't mind how they used her at all. Great to see the major MCU characters get a chance to shine.

    Be a bit more mindful of your titles. The film just came out, we're all looking forward to seeing it and there's nothing worse than coming across someone's negative title when scrolling through TheXvid. I'd rather go in with hype than doubt.

    Saw it early on Thursday I wont spoil anything, Endgame was very good my own theory was confirmed so I was very happy, yes some big holes in the movie, but overall it was very good but tbh I thought it Infinity War was overall a better movie but still close, Brie don't like her doesn't play a character at all, but man all I can say is RIP these movies in the future outside of a couple here and there like the upcoming Spider-man, if they do what they very heavily suggest they are doing wow Major RIP will skip most of them outside of a handful like I said. Most of the pay offs were good but some weren't at all or mixed. Loved Hawkeye they made him a badass for once just how it should be.

    Think about every change marvel has made in the books over the last few years that have caused hundreds of comic shops to shut down from lack of interest. Then prepare yourself, cause almost all of it was shoe horned into this film. End Game isn't the problem..the next 5 movies will be. You're right though ,the likes of this run won't be seen again becase the baby was just thrown out with the bath water.

    Highly recommended: Watch the first 10, 20 or 30 minutes or so of this film for free online BEFORE you agree to pay for it. You might just change your mind and think it's a tedious film full of people whining and moaning and doing stupid things. FOR THREE HOURS??!? Ugh, no thanks, the first 30 minutes was bad enough!

    After finishing watching the film late night (around 2:00 am), I agree 100% that Infinity War is much better than Endgame. Do not get me wrong: Endgame was enjoyable and had fantastic moments. However, this film made me ask questions with the choices they made with certain characters (Thor, Hulk, & Thanos) & the overall time travel plot. The conclusions with regards to Black Widow, Captain America, & Iron Man can be debatable & a little forced but it is more nitpicking than problems. Overall, I had a wonderful time. I think 8.5 out of 10 is fair & reasonable score. I really wanted Endgame to be a wonderful & satisfying conclusion to the original Avengers. But, this film felt like “The Return of Jedi” of Avengers films. Great & Exciting but could have been executed better. At least Infinity War is “The Empire Strikes Back” of Avengers films.

    Maybe not the most popular opinion, but I liked how the haircut looked. Her longer hair looked like a rat's nest with loose strands everywhere. I liked her part in the film. It was appropriately done despite the shoehorning.

    I agree with the length, but in a way the slow build up was a good thing. I went with my fiancé who knows little of the characters and she liked that the beginning was a useful intro to them and their motivation for her, so by the end she was cheering with the rest of us.👍

    10? I was going for 9.5 then i dropped to 8.0 too because of a plot hole and a scene that made me almost puke. But like you said, its an instant and then its gone. Done with MCU though. I'm gonna watch their movies as stand alone films. And Im willing to go to cinema for Spiderman and Dr Strange. Dont really care for the rest of them since Marvel is going the SJW route. I don't like that, but those who do must enjoy themselves.
