Avengers Endgame at the cinema on the 24th of April.
Avengers 4 is finally in our cinemas. The result of Infinity War ended in 3 hours and 11 years of MCU. Nothing will ever be the same again for Marvel after this final confrontation between the survivors and the indestructible Thanos. We could see the movie first. Here are the questions that we asked during the projection. No spoilers here.
Hard to talk about a film without revealing anything and not to talk about his scenario, or what happens there. But no spoiler here.
Avengers Endgame, what is it about ?
Avengers Endgame takes a few weeks after the end of Infinity War. Our heroes are slaughtered. The planet is in shock. How to continue to move forward when half of the population (and our family) has disappeared ? While Tony Stark is lost in the infinity of space, the Avengers are going to try everything in order to reverse the process of Thanos. But…. but there are wheelbarrows in Endgame…
Although we thought of the film, it wants you to discover not you-same for you nothing to spoil this experience. Because of the surprises, there a. Everything is almost a spoiler, and this from the first minute. The biggest strength of the Avengers 4 is closing 10 years of an MCU. The film lasts 3 hours, because each character sees his story led to his end. Each loop narrative initiated within the MCU for over a decade, benefits from its epilogue. It is extremely ambitious on the part of the brothers Russo. Avengers 4 is something of a long nostalgic ride (a little stirring) and a final goodbye to loved ones who have been with us for over 10 years.
Can we see the Endgame without having seen the other Marvel movies ?
Hardly. Or missed all the connections, winks, springs, dramatic and mythological. Endgame is the film of the MCU, which has the most connections with all 21 other films that have preceded it. This is the movie of the MCU, the least accessible to those who know nothing about it. The brothers Russo have revisited actually with malice some key episodes of the saga to move forward in their history. Difficult to more to say without spoiling anything but you are strongly advised to review the Civil War, the first Avengers, the Guardians of the Galaxy, but also the Soldier of the Winter, Thor, Captain America, Captain Marvel… in short a bit of everything in fact.
3 hours is not a long ?
Yes and no. Avengers 4 is lost sometimes in scenes that are dispensable and at the same time, 3 hours seems at times too little to tell what the brothers Russo have head. Some of the passages are to be shipped, and the plots are at 100 at the time as there are so many characters and stories to carry out until the end. If Infinity War was a film told from the point of view of Thanos, Endgame tells the story of the Avengers to the global.
How to be funny then that half of humanity has disappeared ?
Avengers Endgame starts as the most pessimistic and sinister of the Marvel movies. Necessarily, the earth has been ravaged, all our heroes have lost loved ones and nothing seems to be reversible. Difficult to laugh in this atmosphere of death. However, the aspect comedy manages to surprise. We say no more but yes, it often laughs in Avengers 4. Not only through Paul Rudd in Ant-Man and Rocket Raccoon, but thanks to Thor who has lost none of his verve for Thor Ragnarok. The machine punchlines runs at full speed in Avengers 4.
The last 8 minutes are they the craziest in the history of Marvel as the story goes Robert Downey Jr ?
We will not go as far in the speech that the interpreter of Tony Stark. But yes, the last minutes of the Avengers Endgame are rich in emotions and will cause, without aucn doubt the sniffles in the rooms and a few gestures awkward in bags in search of kleenex. However, it was not only the last minutes that are outstanding (on a film of 3 hours thankfully !). The last time wants to be the 60 minutes of the most epic and dantesque in the history of Marvel.
Thanos has he actually killed half the galaxy to go to garden alone in the corner ?
Thanos loves to garden. Not to spoil, as we saw at the end of Infinity War, the titan is a good start and took refuge in the lonely planet, green to savor his victory and the peace news brought to the galaxy. Thanos has the green thumb that you want to…
Avengers 4 is it the masterpiece that was announced ?
It is preferred to Infinity War. But you cannot have one without the other. Even if Endgame is not free of flaws (too much to tell, it sometimes loses in its history, is not immune to the fan service supported, abusing a little oddly some of his characters, and falls in facilities scriptwriting), it is a work of rich, spectacular that will make you vibrate when it should. And entertainment outside the norm.
Here is a blockbuster, generous, which will mark its fans and offers an end as the climax to the saga more the crazy and hubris of the history of the cinema of the 21st century.
It reassures those who are afraid of having to go to the toilet during these three hours, and that fear of not being able to prevent it from going strumming their phone one time or another. You won’t want to anyway !
