I have been a regular customer of Yi Fang M. Paterno and Tomas Morato Branch until I recently heard that there is a
Disclaimer: If you haven’t watched the Avengers Endgame and you don’t want to get spoiled, kindly close this page as this is about to reveal the movie proper and some analysis.
Probably the biggest superhero movie of the year, the Avengers Endgame will run for 3 hours and 2 minutes, surpassing previous record set by the Infinity Wars at 2 hours and 36 minutes.
At the start of the movie we saw that Clint Barton, aka Hawkeye / Ronin, was guiding his daughter on how to perfectly aim the arrow but later saw his family vanishes into thin air, victim of the famous snap from the Infinity War that wipes out half of the souls in the entire universe. This is a continuation of the aftermath and vanishing victims of Thanos’ finger snap.
Meanwhile deep in the space, we see that Tony Stark and Nebula are pretty bored and Tony taught her some crafty games to keep her amused and occupied for the time being before oxygen runs out the next day. Then Tony began recording his messages thru his heavily damaged Iron Man helmet, probably his farewell message should he not make it in time to survived. But as he fell asleep, Nebula picked him up and place him on the chair and later there is a luminous glow across the cosmos that happens to be Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel. She later carried the ship back to earth to the Avengers HQ. If you don’t know how Carol knows about Tony, it was part of the epilogue of Captain Marvel that Carol appeared at the Avengers meeting room while they are figuring out how to revive the pager that Nick Fury left before he got snap away by Thanos in Infinity War.
Tony Stark’s reunion with his former Avenger buddy Steve Rogers is probably the most affecting, the rift between them was probably deeper than ever as Stark blames Steve about their failed teamwork, the later lashed out at him while at their first meeting after his successful return to Earth. This rift was carried over from Captain America Civil War.
The Avengers with newly recruit Captain Marvel then stormed to the Garden where Thanos alone was the only living creature in the planet. They strangled the mad titan up while Capt asked him where the stone are after Thor chopped off his arm holding the gauntlet and Racoon found out it was gone. Thanos revealed that he used the stones to destroy the stones which almost took the toll on him. Nebula then affirmed that his father is anything but a liar which prompts Thor to take off his head. This was a bold move by MCU by ending the life of Thanos early in the movie which left fans wondering about the direction of the movie.
The movie then began when Tony Stark breathes life into Iron Man after quitting the Avengers for 5 years, and it also ended with his last breath as well. Steve Rogers also bid farewell at the end as Captain America as he aged with style.
When Scott Lang aka Antman who got accidentally ejected from his quantum space by a rodent, he seeks the attention of the Avengers who later took him in as another recruit. He later suggested to use quantum physics or time travel to get back the infinity stones to undo what was done by Thanos. This suggestion was probably the turning point of the movie as the whole team was still clueless how to undo what was done. As Steve point out, “The world is in our hands… We gotta do something with it”.
Many heroes are left without a hope, as Clint Barton turned into Ronin as a rogue ninja to revenge his family which will never return to him. While on the other hand, Thor was left hopeless as a video gamer and drunkard which turns his ever muscular body into a… well, Dad bod.
They eventually was convinced to regather after 5 years in quest to use time travel to get back the infinity stones which they later succeeded, well almost. As the present day Nebula was intercepted by the past Nebula when she was about to time travel back to present setting. The past Nebula then cloaks as the present Nebula and returned to the present day which paves way for Thanos to arrive to the present timeline.
I have to take note of two events while they time traveled back to get the stones, the Capt America vs Capt America fight was absolutely priceless as they both go toe to toe to each other while the younger Capt having more endurance but later got knocked out by the more experienced present day Capt. The other one was Tony encountering his own father Howard Stark on the cusp of his own birth – a very touching moment as Tony was able to reconcile with his father, and later reconciled with himself – and dies.
This left us all quite breathless until the last moment where Steve Rogers held the Mjolinir, which proves himself to be a pure person worthy of the God of Thunder’s hammer. When it was so close that Thanos was able to grab the gauntlet and wears it, he was then outsmarted by Tony Stark up to the last moment as he was able to transfer the stones to his own hands and snapped away the existence of Thanos and his cohorts.
The Endgame may not be perfect as its is mostly recall of the past and somewhat altering the past. This will sometime leaves you questioning what happened before if you didn’t watch the previous sequels which leads to this movie. This movie definitely is a towering entertainment experience and also sends a lot of chills down your spine with many roller coaster moments.
Still there are some questions that might linger in your mind, like where is Gamora during the wake of Tony Stark, well she was snapped away by Stark as she was Thanos’ cohorts from the past. I was also wondering how did the two Nebula shared one network in the same timeline, were their memories stored on the same cloud server?
Several main characters died and might be forever gone, unless MCU gives them a reboot. Gone are Iron Man, Captain America, Black Widow in this movie. But we saw several successor which might be the key characters to revolve around in the future, Falcon as the new Captain America, Pepper Potts as the Female Iron Man, Valkyrie possibly taking over as Thor said he is not worthy to be the King of Asgard.
These are just the possibilities and my own theory, but there are movies upcoming featuring Black Widow, Vision and Loki.
Meanwhile, while everyone is turning up the heat with the movie, Redmi and Avengers has collaborated to come up with this awesome announcement we saw on Weibo:
