“[after a botched first attempt of time travel] Someone peed my pants! Not sure if it was the baby-me or the old me. [pauses] Or was it just me-me?” – Scott Lang

Brief Synopsis – After Thanos changed the whole universe by a snap of his fingers, the remaining Avengers try to find a way to put things right.
My Take on it – This is probably one of the most anticipated films of all time and we all had to wait a year to find out how the events of Avengers: Infinity War (2018) affect things in the MCU.
They find a way to end the Infinity Stones story line in such an entertaining way that works so well form start to finish.
The film is able to get so much right in the way that things unfold and never pull any punches while allowing things to take their course wherever they may lead.
The plot is slightly complex and gets convoluted very now and again if one isn’t fully paying attention.
This is a jam packed 3 hour film that gives us so much that in a way it’s a shame that it isn’t even longer.
Despite the film’s length, thing never feel as if they drag and the story is quite exciting and interesting even if one is already aware of what will happen.
This is a perfect example of an exquisite ensemble film and none of the characters are in the spotlight for too long which helps make things feel so balanced throughout the movie.
The story takes place immediately following the events of Avengers: Infinity War (2018) and despite the fact that we had a year hiatus between films, the characters lives continue during that tie frame without stopping.
The film is quite fun yet is filled with lots of powerful, emotional and poignant scenes that help make this story so impactful.
Each of the characters finds their own path to dealing with the events of the past and how they each react to those events.
This is a film that will go down in history as being one of the greatest superhero ensemble movies.
This is true not only due to the vast number of characters, story threads , special effects and the fact that it is the highest grossing film ever.
Love the way that the film continues the powerful message of Captain Marvel (2019) of what one needs to do when they fall down.
Each of these characters reflect this message with different kinds of answers that are diverse and in some case quiet extreme and that helps make things even more powerful to watch unfold.
This is by far one of the best films in the franchise and is the kind of story that can be watched again and again because it is so comprehensive.
Bottom Line – Such an amazing way to end this series and the Infinity Stones story line. The film gets so much right and doesn’t pull any punches along the way. The plot gets a bit convoluted along the way, but they make up for it by packing so much into this 3 hour film. Despite its length, this film doesn’t drag at any point and stays extremely entertaining throughout even if you already know what will happen. The film does an amazing job showing how much of an ensemble film this story is and none of the characters really take the spotlight for too much time because they all have equal footing throughout. The story takes place right after the events of Avengers: Infinity War (2018) and even though we all had to wait a year to see what happens, the characters lives continued during that time frame without stopping. The movie is so much fun yet they find ways to keep things quite powerful and poignant throughout especially when characters deal with the repercussions of previous events and of their own immediate actions following those events. This is a film that will go down in history as being one of the greatest superhero films ever made because of the vast number of characters, story threads, special effects and even the way that it quickly became the most profitable film in history. The message of the film is quite concise and clear and is actually a continuation of the one first presented in Captain Marvel (2019) about what one does when they fall down and they are able to show us how so many of these characters reacted to the events that precede this film in diverse and in some cases extreme ways. One of the best films in the franchise and is something that I’ll be able to watch often because it’s so powerful throughout. Highly Highly Recommended!
MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – Robert Downey Jr. once told Anthony Russo and Joe Russo about how one of his children said “I love you 3000” to him. The directors liked the phrase so much that they decided to include it in the film. (From IMDB)
