ADVISER’S NOTE: Marvel nerds of The Prowl, if you have not had the opportunity to see Avengers: Endgame yet, we recommend you do not read this story. The last thing we want is an angry mob of geeks outside Mr. Cappiello’s room. Honestly, If you haven’t seen this movie, WHAT ARE YOU DOING? Thank you. Sincerely, Devon and Aidan

Aidan’s Negative Review

All movies have their flaws, and the seemingly flawless Avengers: Endgame was not the exception. The movie did manage to make $1.2 billion, but it still has its problems.

So everyone buckle up for some ranting about the flaws, and if you haven’t seen Endgame, remember, you’ve been warned.

The biggest flaw with Endgame is, of course, the boring first half. The editors of this lengthy film could have cut 30 minutes and still had a very thrilling movie. Too much time is spent with story beats people don’t care about. The time travel element could have been something really special, and it started out that way.

Then the movie meanders into boring territory as the plot turns into more of a joke than a thrilling end to 10 years of film. The first half of that movie felt like one long self-obsessed joke.

The lame jokes showed the most in the movies longest joke, fat Thor. Something that started super funny just becomes a feeling of … This is still going on?

The movie also was riddled with cheesy moments intended to evoke certain feelings from the audience. All they did was just make everyone facepalm.

A prime example was the women of Marvel line-up shot. It could have been so cool, but they just made it so cheesy and cliche. Unfortunately, there were many similar occurrences throughout the movie.

All and all, this movie probably did not deserve to make more money than Infinity War. The second half was good, but that should not make up for the lackluster abomination that was the first half.

Devon’s Positive Review

This is it. The movie we’ve waited 17 Marvel movies and 3 Avengers movies for. It’s here. It’s the endgame.

On the eve of April 26. hordes of nerds accumulated outside movie theatres all over the world awaiting what would be the best moments of their life… the release of the final Avengers movie.

Avengers: Endgame may have single-handedly made more money than all the other Marvel movies combined, for good reason. I assure you if you see this movie with at least a general knowledge of the Marvel cinematic universe, you will leave the theatre dead inside, but happy about it. It’s just that good.

To show my joy of being emotionally destroyed by this movie here is a short recap of why Avengers: Endgame was literally the best movie made since the Lord of the Rings trilogy was made into movies.

The movie starts very aggressively, which is always good, with Thor: the God of Thunder just casually cutting of Thanos’ head like he’s cutting open a watermelon to share with his friends on a hot summer’s day. So the movie had a pretty strong start I’d say.

Oh, and there’s also the fact that Robert Downey Jr., aka Iron Man, nonchalantly figures out how to time travel, because you might as well, right?

The rest of the revolutionary scenes of the movie take place in the second half of the movie when the brunt of the fighting scenes begin.

The fighting scenes of the second half of the movie were beautifully crafted and made to leave everyone on the edge of their seats.

Marvel also decided to throw in the fact that Captain America is worthy enough to wield Mjolnir, Thor’s hammer, which we all saw coming but still made everyone in the theatre collectively spit out whatever food or drink they had in their mouths at the time.

As many have predicted all of the people that were dusted out of existence come back to fight Thanos’ entire army of aliens to produce the greatest battle scene in cinematic history where every single army ever assembled in any Marvel movie came together for one final battle.

The only downfall of the movie was the two heart-wrenching deaths that left even the manliest of Marvel fans with tears drenching their popcorn buckets. R.I.P. Black Widow and Iron Man.

In the end, love it or hate it, Endgame was a worthy end to one of the most famous movie series in history.
