My wife told me that I had to write a review for "Avengers: Endgame." With a big Hollywood tentpole movie like the final film in Marvel's Infinity Saga, many critics aren't given opportunities to view the movie in advance. I had to purchase a ticket like everybody else. Keeping all of this in mind, I told my wife that it would be very difficult to write a review for a film and to get it in within a reasonable amount of time.
What I didn't realize is that this task would be near impossible, given the fact that I can't talk about any spoilers.
There has been a major push to avoid spoilers with this film. About two weeks ago, there was a report of a leak, revealing a crucial part of the film. Friends of mine abandoned the Internet. It was a mass exodus. I can't say that I blamed them. I refused to read anything about "Avengers: Endgame" except for the early review summaries. It was an odd time to be a nerd.
I understand why the Russos, the directors of the film, put out a message to Marvel fans worldwide to avoid spoilers. The film is one giant spoiler. Anything I really say about the film is really teetering on making the movie-going experience somehow lesser. Could the movie be enjoyed with some knowledge of what was going to happen? Definitely. I try not to hype movies up too much, but "Avengers: Endgame" is a triumph in every sense of the term. Cinematically, it feels on a scale that I haven't seen a superhero movie really attempt.
