It's good. It's funny. It's a thoroughly satisfying final installment of "The Avengers" franchise that Joe and Anthony Russo have put together with "Avengers: Endgame." The great challenge here, though, is explaining why... Without the spoilers. And this will be spoiler-free, provided you've already seen "Avengers: Infinity War" (or the extra post-credits scene in "Captain Marvel").
Endgame picks up right where they left off — with Ironman, Thor, Captain America and War Machine surviving the mass extinction caused by the titan Thanos and his gaudy, giant golden gauntlet. As one would expect, some of our heroes have handled it better than others. With Black Widow trying to hold the team together, the effect on Thor draws the most audience reaction (laughs). But explaining the basic plot how they want to re-save the world (as usual) would be a tell. Even our heroes have some well-written wink-and-a-nod fun with the implausibility of it. Yet, it works. Though lengthy at three hours long, most storylines are resolved. Now, some die-hard sci-fi fans might have an issue with how their solution might work in the real world. We must remember this is sci-fi fantasy. And as such, it's a fine film indeed.
