Damn it's hard to review this film without spoiling anything. Endgame was okay. Infinity War was much better. Endgame is messy and refuses to follow its own rules. I have to give them credit for being able to legitimately surprise me. They had fewer characters to deal with, but the addition of Captain Marvel does not work at all. Again, it's hard to explain why I was disappointed in Endgame without giving anything away, but I can say that 90% of my issues are plot related. The pacing is fine. The acing is fine. The cinematography is bland, but unoffensive. The humor was entirely missing and it continually goes for cheap emotional cues. The CGI is usually okay, but there are definitely times where it looked terrible; not as bad as the train fight in Black Panther or the Rhinos in Infinity War, but noticeably a much lower quality that we've come to expect. Endgame makes it clear very fast that it's main priority is fan service. This is just a greatest hits that does wrap up Phase 3 (although the actual final film in Phase 3 is Far From Home). Endgame is a huge disappointment. Far too many plot holes and flat out errors in how things work based on their own rules. It's not terrible by any means, but especially following up Infinity War, Endgame is just sloppy.
