• Much like Infinity War, Endgame won’t make much sense to anyone who hasn’t seen most or all of the 21 Marvel movies that came before it. It is more or less the second part of Infinity War (despite not being called Infinity War — Part 2), but those of us who have connected with these characters over the last decade and change were not looking for a standalone adventure. We wanted to see Marvel Studios successfully pull off a magic trick that has never been performed on the silver screen. Against overwhelming odds, the studio managed to do it.

  • This is a movie you ought to watch with your friends. Discuss it after you’re done. It has changed the franchise forever. If you do go, go with as many people as you can. This film is best when shared. Even if you go alone, like I did, go in a full theatre. It’s the theatre experience that elevates this one. And please, for goodness sake don’t watch it on your phone when it comes online.

  • Though it’s unlikely there are any, but even the uninitiated will appreciate Endgame. A hard-core fan, though, will most likely be overwhelmed with the constant onslaught of nostalgia.

  • ‘Avengers: Endgame’ is the end of a saga that set into motion the rise of geekdom into the mainstream avenue. There will never be the likes of it again, all the bets that Kevin Feige and team took have paid off and now it’s time to rest.

    Until ‘Far Home’, at least.

  • The movie reserves its firepower for a climactic display of pyrotechnics, and the visual effects showcase is a relief from the puffy eyes and forlorn speeches. Thanos may be inevitable, but what’s an Avengers movie without showboating?
