McCann At The Movies: Avengers Endgame Is A Fitting Finale To A Fantastic Franchise

John McCann says Avengers Endgame is a film worthy of it’s place in the rich Marvel catalogue…

With a world record-breaking opening weekend box office haul of over $1 billion worldwide, and cinemas up and down the country full to capacity over the last week, I made my way to Tralee Omniplex to become probably one of the last cinemagoers to see Avengers Endgame.

But, more importantly, to find out was it worthy of such high box office figures and critical acclaim.

In ‘Avengers Endgame’, the grave course of events previously set in motion by Thanos that wiped out half the universe and fractured the Avengers ranks compels the remaining Avengers to take one final stand in Marvel Studios’ grand conclusion to 22 blockbusting films.

‘Avengers Endgame’ may strongly demonstrate the powerful strength of marketing and hype, but like all the other 21 Avengers films, it also contains lots of other factors that have made the franchise soar whilst other comic book series have floundered spectacularly.

‘Avengers Endgame’, sees the usual groundbreaking effects dished up in spades again this time around maximising the thrill adventure ride that this movies produce.


The dialogue is again sharp and witty, with the humour a constant relief from the trials and tribulations facing our heroes.

What has been added with extra attention this time around however, is the emotional depth (I’s only as superhero movie – but it can still have depth!) that is evident from the very first shot.

After a thrilling 21 film ride, the pressure must have been enormous on the production crew to serve up a fitting ending to a highly entertaining and successful franchise and in my opinion, they have achieved just that!

The usual pick n mix of Marvel stars are there sharing screen time and all contribute to a dazzling finale with many twists and turns along the way.

My usual gripe about these films hasn’t subsided however, as a running time of over three hours seems a bit excessive in a film that could have easily lost a few minutes and still had the same profound effect.

Overall though, ‘Avengers Endgame’ is a film worthy of its place in the rich (in all senses of the word) Marvel catalogue and will excite fans of the genre and leave blockbuster fan disappointed!
