Imagine the best possible version of #AvengersEndgame and somehow the film still surpasses all expectations. I cried 5-6 times. It’s the most emotional, most epic, MCU film. A tribute to ten years of this universe and holy shit the great fan service in this movie. Soooo good.— Peter Sciretta (@slashfilm) April 23, 2019
#AvengerEndgame is an immensely satisfying payoff, not just to Infinity War but to all the films that came before. This is why the MCU. (And I say this as someone who was not especially enamored of Infinity War, FWIW.) ♥️💙💜— Angie J. Han (@ajhan) April 23, 2019
CinemaBlend's Eric Eisenberg shared: “This can’t be understated: #AvengersEndgame is everything you want it to be and more. I am absolutely floored. A perfect reflection on the last 11 years that pays off everything in the best way possible. Without question my new favorite Marvel Cinematic Universe film. Stunned.”
While Dennis Tzeng of Collider posted: “#AvengersEndgame is filled with so much comic book awesomeness that you may not be ready! Great blend of action, emotion and humor while keeping the stakes high throughout. Truly an achievement in blockbuster filmmaking.”
Brandon Davis of ComicBook shared: “#AvengersEndgame is an astonishing, amazing film. I’ve never seen anything like it. This movie is everything I wanted to be and SO much more. Amazing. While watching #AvengersEndgame, I laughed so loud, I clapped with so much force, and I cried so hard. The movie exceeds every expectation and is the perfect culmination of the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe.”
#AvengersEndgame is a masterful epic - a true culmination of 22 films that not only concludes the story, but expands upon it. You’ll learn more about the other movies while this one unfolds. If Infinity War is the brawn, Endgame is the brains. And wow, what an ending! pic.twitter.com/94ttBUQKJ0— Erik Davis (@ErikDavis) April 23, 2019
Man #AvengersEndgame kicked my ass. It was an epic conclusion to 11 years of films. It had laughs, incredible action and absolute emotional rollercoaster. It was the series finale for these cast of characters that I had been hoping for. Congrats to all for pulling off the feat.— Kristian Harloff (@KristianHarloff) April 23, 2019
The New York Times' Dave Itzkoff reacted to the film in classic Marvel fan manner, writing: “I was not prepared for the range of emotions that #Endgame put me through, from utter despair to pure elation. I laughed, I cried, I wished Tony Stark was my dad."
Along the same lines, Beatrice Verhoeven of The Wrap posted, “So I just saw #AvengersEndgame, and you guys aren’t ready for sh*t. All the theorizing didn’t prepare you for this. I cried a lot, I flung my hands in the air and screamed out loud. It’s incredible. #EndgamePremiereLA #Avengers #Endgame"
Variety's Matt Donnelly said, "Incredible ingenuity and commitment. Marvel and Disney can and should be proud of this moment. #AvengersEndgame,” while the same outlet's Ramin Setoodeh added that “there wasn’t a dry eye in the house as the credits rolled for #AvengersEndgame.”
The biggest non-spoiler revelation, however, came from Yahoo Entertainment's Kevin Polowy, who explained: “Wow #AvengersEndgame is one for the ages. Breathfully taken. It’s like 8 hours long but doesn’t feel a minute over 2, there’s like a surprise a minute (cameos! Throwbacks! Haircuts!) Perfectly wrapped up. Marvel fans are gonna funking love this.”
