Just to warn you before hand, there are a few spoilers which you might not want to read if you have not already seen the film yet. If you have, do comment as to whether you agree or don't agree.
The film to recap is the culimation of 22 movies over a decade, its what they've all been leading up to. It is a sequel to the film that came out about the same time last year, Infinity Wars. At the end of the previous film, the Avengers had been beaten, a large number of them were dead, having been killed when Thanos clicked his infinity gauntlet, wiping out half of the universe's population.
All the survivors from the first film are back plus a few new ones such as Hawkeye, Carol Danvers and Scott Lang. New meaning that they weren't in the first part. Both of these characters were advertised in trailers.
Jeremy Renner had chosen to appear in The Tag instead of appearing in Avengers. Paul Rudd who played Scott Lang was too pre-occupied to star in Avengers making Ant-Man and the Wasp so was unable to spare time for this film. Brie Larson was also too occupied, making the first Marvel female superhero movie, Captain Marvel.
It is undoubtedly, the funniest of all the Marvel films and there seemed to be too many laughs and that seemed like its biggest fault. The funniest character was Thor who had taken to drinking to get over the death and destruction. Thor had put on weight and was now an alcoholic who didn't care.
There's only one way to undo the damage and thats to time travel back and stop him. In order to stop him, the Avengers would need to steal the stones out of time and use them themselves to kill Thanos. The film neatly wove in previous film scene expertly. Characters such as the Ancient One (Tilda Swinton) from Doctor Strange and Alexander Pierce (Robert Redford) reappeared in new scenes. Natalie Portman filmed a brief scene for the film. One of the characters even got to fight with himself.
It was no secret that Tony Stark was going to bow out of the film, killing himself to save the universe. What was surprising was who else and how. Captain America time-travelled back into the past to replace the stones in history and stayed in the past with his World War 2 love interest, Peggy Carter. At the end, an old Steve Rogers turns up to pass on his shield to Sam Wilson.
The surprise death was, Black Widow who sacrificed herself so that Hawkeye could get the soul stone. Whilst Gamora was able to come back from the death through time travel, Natasha Romanoff stays dead. A Black Widow film is currently being made so it is interesting to see where they go with that, it is believed that the film will be set in the past, a prequel.
There are some nice touches in the film, the way they've done Black Widows hair where we last saw her, her hair was blonde. Her hair is now long and red with blonde ends to show she couldn't care about what she looked like.
It'll probably not win any Oscars, none of these types of films win a major oscar. The only exception has been Heath Ledgers Joker in the Dark Knight Rises being the one exception. The film might win custome or special effects but none of the ones people are most interested in. It could be awarded a special oscar but not a traditional one.
D.C. with their catalogue of superheroes failed to capitalise on the Christian Bale Batman movies and when they eventually tried their Avengers equivalent, it flopped. D.C. rushed too quickly into an Avengers style movie which flopped compared to Marvel. Marvel had Kevin Feige to control how Marvelverse went, D.C. had no one of his calibre to do theirs.
