January is my birthday month, so I decided that I would try and do something quite unique and special for this milestone in my life. I will be turning 48, so I decided to watch 49 (48+1 for good luck) of my all time favorite movies in a random order over the course of this month. I have reviewed every one of these films already, but I will now give new perspectives on them all. Every one of these films received a 10/10 scoring from me. Some of these reviews will contain spoilers so if you have never seen them before, I recommend that you read some of my previous reviews of the film that are spoiler free before reading on…
Hope you enjoy!
This is film #30 of the 49.
Let’s continue with…
“Some people move on. But not us… Not us.” – Steve Rogers
Initial Viewing Memories – After having to wait a year to see what happens to these characters, the story takes up right after the previous one ended and it was spectacular to see it played out on the screen.
Number of Times Seen – 4 (24 Apr 2019, 11 Dec 2019, 10 Aug 2020 and 18 Jan 2022)

Brief Synopsis – The remaining members of The Avengers tend to the defense of the Earth after half the population disappeared and try and find a way to right the wrong that Thanos created.
My Take on it – This was a movie that we all had to wait a year to finally see what happened after the end of Avengers: Infinity War (2018).
They treat this story really well and it really is the perfect end to this phase of the MCU.
Love the way that the story unfolds and they are able to give such a powerful story that fits within the scheme of superhero films, but also gives us so much more beyond that.
The film is a mix of various genres and they blend so well together; heist movie, time travel movie, sci-fi, superhero, drama, action and adventure are just a few of the themes and genres used here.
The film also deals with the personal toll that fighting evil can possibly bring and that helps make this film the very best of all of the MCU films because it shows that sometimes there is a heavy cost for the defeat of evil.
The fact that three of the film’s superheroes end their stories here opens up so many possibilities for others to take up that mantle in the future.
The fact that they are able to integrate so many characters and storylines together in this film works so well and shows how much of an ensemble film this series can be.
Can’t wait to watch this one again!
Highly Highly Recommended!
MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – The idea of showing the autographs for the original The Avengers (2012) actors in the end credits came from Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country (1991), which was also a finale for its cast. (From IMDB)
Rating – Oscar Worthy (10/10) (no change from original review)
