It’s been a week since "Avengers: Endgame" brought an end to one of the biggest film ventures in cinema history.
And while there are still some poor souls trying to avoid spoilers, it’s fair to say, that ship has sailed and it’s time to talk about all the elements that make "Avengers: Endgame" so great.
I went for a second showing in 4DX at Nu Metro to really get all the moments I might have missed the first time around. And watching it a second time was just as enjoyable as the first time.
While 4DX isn’t my preferred way of watching a movie, there are aspects of this unique experience that does create an immersive film-going experience. The addition of the fog, movable chairs and occasional spritz of water does bring you into the film more, and you really feel like you're apart of the action.
Firstly, the acting and screenwriting are stellar. Chris Evans especially stands out with his portrayal of Captain America. Specifically, the scene where fights himself in the past. The screenwriters threw in what can be seen as a throwaway line when past Cap tells Cap 23 "I can do this all day" and Cap 23 replies with "yeah, I know". While it is hilarious, it also highlights how the character has evolved since we met him. And the writers throughout the film shows they know exactly who these characters are and give all of the original Avengers a full circle moment.
Black Widow/Natasha Romanoff’s(Scarlett Johansson) death is written in a way that is true to her character compared to that of Iron Man/Tony Stark(Robert Downey Jr.). Many fans were a bit annoyed with the fact that Stark’s death was treated “better” compared to Widow's, but it made perfect sense with the character. Widow's objective was always to unite her family and she wouldn't want them to mourn her sacrifice.
