Aquaman was in it!  <== Fake spoiler.  ;)

Just got back from the theater. It is too soon for spoilers. I'll just say...

It was a really satisfying wrap up to a decade plus of movies.

And now we know why Dr. Strange couldn't tell Tony... Also, I feel like the spoiler tags are unnecessary. Anyone who opens this thread should know what's coming.  :P

I think in this thread all discussion of anything related to Endgame should always be enclosed in spoiler tags.

Like, I can get why they went with what they did, particularly with how the movie was focused, but it still would've been a nice emphasis on team.

I had both these questions as well. And the same final opinion, but that's par for the course (Ragnarok was and still is my favorite).

Yeah, I read the rest of the thread, just thought I'd mention that I left the theater with the same questions.

Yeah, saw the movie last night. Without spoiling anything, I will say it was a movie full of plot conveniences and rushed explanations. Regarding spoilers, a few examples of what I mean:

My over-emphasis on the sure goes to show how extraordinarily fortunate those things were/how unconvinced/taken out of the movie I was by them. Feel free to correct me if I missed something that explained some of these points in better detail.

I could go on and on about individual scenes -such as the eye-rolling, audible groaning 'girl power' scene- and how predictable things were when I was watching the movie, and how most of the serious scenes fell flat for me (the audience at our theater did not help this), but I will say, overall, I enjoyed the movie for what it was- a satisfactory decent conclusion to a sometimes great, sometimes slogfest decade-plus chronicle. I was so bored watching Infinity War that the good things this movie did (all the quiet, character-reflective moments, and the few consequences that actually stuck) really made up for all the dumb parts in my mind. Fine, but not great.

These marvel movies have become so bloated as a whole that I would've been fine if they ended it on Infinity War. What Marvel accomplished with these movies is truly impressive, given everything, but I couldn't have cared less going into Endgame. The fact that they gave certain characters some great final moments and arcs was worth seeing the movie for and felt earned in the grand scheme of things, and I can appreciate the effort and payoff in that aspect. This was just about exactly how I expected it to be, only I enjoyed it where I didn't think I would going in. It's for sure a movie that you can really enjoy as long as you don't think too hard about it. ;)


...However, it's all going to be undermined by future films, since there's no way they're leaving well enough alone. So look forward to that. :thumbup:

Not corrections, so much as adding context to a handful of your points.

Fortunately, these things donít seem to be stopping people from enjoying the movie. Probably because it actually attempts to do its characters some justice and doesnít spit in the face of its fans (unlike a certain other not-to-be-named movie). Itís admirable for a franchise thatís essentially written itself into a corner and needs to end. But now that Iíve had a week to think about it, Iíll amend my earlier statement from saying the movie is Ďgoodí to say it's Ďfineí. I canít take it seriously like it wants me to, but there were genuinely good parts and genuine effort put in; enough that I canít bring myself to dislike it.
