Ybay reviews: ‘Avengers: Endgame’


Madie Ybay, Co-Editor in Chief

Well, I am an emotional wreck. “Avengers: Endgame” is emotionally abusive in the best way. It is so hard to put into words how this movie makes me feel. Stan Lee and the Russo brothers have done it again. The movie was stunning; everything I could have wanted out of it. I have nothing bad to say about “Avengers: Endgame.”

This movie has been anticipated for so many years, since the first “Avengers” came out in 2012. A lot of our generation had grown up with these heroes and “Avengers: Endgame” is the movie to end their stories. In the Marvel Comic Universe, this film is the end.

This is the end of an era. To be completely honest, I was not ready for the end. I still do not think that my brain has processed that I have seen the end. So much in fact that it still does not feel real. I sat in the theaters for three hours and by the end of it, half of the movie didn’t feel real.

There is not much I can say about the plot as in the beginning has plot twists that help set up for the end. If you do not know the whole plot, and this is definitely spoilers for “Avengers: Infinity War,” is basically the surviving heroes are trying to recollect the infinity stones to undo Thanos’ snap that killed half of the living creatures in the universe.

I love just about every hero in this movie; they are beautifully portrayed by amazing and attractive actors. Sadly, this movie seems to be the last run for many of the actors since they are giving up their roles to different actors seeing as they are reaching an older age. I have grown up with these actors and it breaks my heart to see them leave.

However, they left with a bang, there was nothing I could complain about; the action scenes were beautiful and I was freaking out in my seat over the intensity of them. There was Marvel-ous (ha, I’ll leave now) scenes one right after another, which was absolutely insane.

I was losing my mind in the theater. I’ll tell you though, they built me up to break me down. This movie tore my heart open. My heart wretched and ached in adoration and love. At the same time it broke and shattered in heartbreak and sadness.

I absolutely love this movie, but I also hate it so much for hurting my heart. I am just not ready for this to be the end; however, it was the perfect way to end it. I would wholeheartedly give “Avengers Endgame” 5/5 stars. Absolutely stunning, and I would experience this emotional abuse again any day.
