“Endgame” is probably best remembered for its tearful goodbyes. Reveal who, of course, could cost me my life. But the farewells, tender and sincere, capture something important about the “Avengers” movies: deep down they talk about family. It was never as evident as in the children, parents, brothers and husbands who inhabit “Endgame”, creating connections in a fantasy realm that despite the agitation is much more united than ours.”Endgame” marks the end of an era, but the conclusion of this chapter in this cinematic universe will of course not last long: the Marvel assembly lines are already buzzing. And I suspect it will be a while until we understand what Marvel has caused with these movies. In the worst case, they are colossal and inhumane products built for an enlarged form of televised binge eating. In the best of them, they are great and extra-large Hollywood shows. It is not a spoiler to say that “Endgame” borders more on the second. At least I think so.”Avengers: Endgame,” a Walt Disney Co. premiere, received a PG-13 rating from the Motion Picture Association of the United States (MPAA) for scenes of violence and action, and some foul language. Duration: 181 minutes Three stars of four.
Director Anthony / Joe Russo, with Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson , Jeremy Renner, Mark Ruffalo, Don Cheadle, Chris Hemsworth , Gwyneth Paltrow, Josh Brolin.
ADVENTURE The situation is desperate.
“Avengers: Infinity war” ended with half of all life on earth disappearing. Even many heroes in Avengers dissolved in smoke clouds since evil Thanos managed to get together six Important Stones and used the force.
Now the misery continues. Clint Barton / Hawkeye sees some vanished in the curse and Iron man / Tony Stark is injured on a spaceship far from Earth, well beyond rescue.
