First live-action film appearance of Spider-Man after the deaths of his co-creators Steve Ditko and Stan Lee, and the second overall, after Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018). Ditko died in June 2018 and Lee died in November 2018, both coming after Spider-Man's appearance in Avengers: Infinity War (2018) (April 2018), but prior to the release of "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse" (December 2018).

Hulk claims there's a generator powering the experimental time machine and orders Black Widow to kill the power. When she opens the breaker it can be seen the equipment is actually an air conditioner, not a generator. In the final scene where Captain America is sent back in time, the same air conditioner can be seen "powering" the time machine. See more »

IMAX version shown at AMC in Shelby, MI was only about 2.5hrs long! Appears that there are two versions being shown. Movie was to start at 12:30p.m. At that time previews to other shows started. The actual Avengers Endgame movie started about 12:50p.m. and ended around 3:20p.m. The movie is stated on the Internet as 3 hrs and 2 minutes long! See more »
Overall an epic conclusion but inferior to Infinity War's pace and energy (SPOILER FREE)
This is probably the highest 8/10 I could give for an 8/10 movie.
There are some very good moments in Endgame and that's coming from a long standing MCU fan growing up with these movies. In creating an extensive and emotional journey for a lot of the MCU characters, it absolutely succeeds.
Endgame ultimately is an excellent conclusion to over 10 years of film but I feel the plot's pacing and direction is really lacking to Infinity War, which 'trimmed the fat' and was much more focused and energetic. Granted, Endgame takes risks but this might be a disappointment to some fans with its slower pace that focuses on character development over action and intense sequences. The run time probably should be shorter or streamlined. Less cuts and motion blur during fight scenes would've made it easier to track fights as well.
Respect for the Russo Brothers for taking the direction they did with Endgame and it really does satisfy but Infinity War is overall a more entertaining movie. It's not the best MCU movie but I can't dispute its great conclusion.
