Yesterday had this to say:

"Honestly, I'm not a big Marvel fan. It's fine as mindless entertainment but I never understood a lot of the buzz it generates from more than your typical mainstream audience. But there's enough ambition in these films for me to admire them and more than a few movies are okay. Whenever a new movie comes out, I always try to be objective and disconnect myself from the hype. I like having an objective viewpoint when watching a Marvel movie- getting lost in the spectacle while also determining the positives and negatives. I'm one of the rare people who didn't love Infinity War. It's fine and has great character interactions and action set pieces but is ultimately a mess with too many plot threads, not enough substance and just feels like set-up for Endgame. You could, however, make the case that it's better than Endgame because the sheer scope is felt more. But, to me, having the characters mostly together creates focus which is why I'm making the case that Endgame is the better film. It is a very good movie. It's not perfect, but it's definitely worthy of the 'Epic' tagline. While Infinity War is consistently all over the place in tone and scope, Endgame is a movie of three acts. The first act is surprisingly dialogue driven and kinda emotional. Infinity War showed us the lighter side of the characters, now we have hopelessness and depth. It's brave making a movie of this size going out to such a huge demographic and having a third being dedicated to characters talking. Then we have the second act which, like the entirity of the predecessor is very good and has some great moments but also very convoluted and the logic it tried to imply is confusing. But all is given when we get to the climax. Normally, I hate the big CGI-heavy battle sequences of these type of films but here it's Epic and satisfying. And, just to be perfectly balanced (no pun intended), the ending has some emotional moments. I personally didn't cry, but man, almost everyone in my screening was sobbing. Overall, it's great that we have a complete story of Infinity War and Endgame and this 11 year experiment by Marvel is very satisfying in its conclusion. The MCU could end here and I would be glad but while the money is rolling in, there's no stopping Disney."
