Avengers Endgame: A spoiler-free Review

Avengers Endgame was released in theaters this week, and it is a film that deserves to be talked about.

First, Endgame is extremely emotional. It’s a movie made for the fans, so you can be sure you’ll cry at least once during the film. I cried three times, like ugly cried, sobbing, bawling my eyes out and I only didn’t cry some more because I was SUPER excited, which leads us to the second point: Endgame has some fantastic moments. It is full of moments that makes you scream and jump out of your seat because of how excited you get. There are two specific moments that cross my mind right now that made the whole audience scream like crazy, almost like we did when Thor arrived in Wakanda in Infinity War – but it’s even better (or at least it was for me). Endgame was a super bowl for nerds and geeks. Some characters’ arcs are pretty amazing and it completes the construction we’ve been seeing for the last 11 years. It’s a movie about the character’s relationship with each other and the consequences that Infinity War left them.

Now, the bad news: There are two characters that were extremely wronged. Even worse, one of them could have been at least a little less terrible if they had taken the time to tell us what happened in the meantime.

Overall, Endgame a great film. I would even say it’s one of Marvel’s best movies. There’s a lot of fan-service (the movie is a whole 3-hour-long fan-service), but it’s still good.

I would give Endgame 4/5 stars. Even if you are not a huge fan of Marvel, it’s still a great movie to see.

“It was amazing,” said Rockwell junior Katie Hull. “It was a rollercoaster of emotions from beginning to end. It’s worth seeing.”

Rockwell students enjoyed the nostalgia that surrounded the film, as well.

“The entire movie made me feel like I was flying through a comic book and made me relive a lot of childhood memories,” said Rockwell senior Jake Meese. “It made me realize that this generation of superheroes is pretty much my generation of superheroes.”

Endgame is nothing of what we expected. Grab some tissues, take a deep breath, and go watch it. Our six originals deserve it. The new generation deserves it. We, the fans, deserve it.

They were with us. ‘Till the end of the line.

Muscular Intensity meets Exhilaration in Marvel’s The Black Panther

by Alyssa Smith

The Black Panther was released to theaters on February 16. It was a thrilling new Marvel movie that has been the only movie since Avatar to top the box office for five straight weeks in a row.

“It was such an amazing movie,” said Rockwell sophomore Felicia Jacquez. “Everyone should go see it.”

Critics enjoyed this movie and thought it was very well-done.

“Like Taika Waititi before him, Ryan Coogler gives the Marvel template a bold auteurist twist with an African extravaganza,” said critic Jimi Famurewa. “It packs a muscular intensity and challenges as much as it exhilarates.”

Although Rotten Tomatoes gives this film a high 97%, a few people disagree with the majority vote.

“The film spirals into a stodgy tale of internecine feuding, in which T’Challa is required to come to terms with the sins of past generations,” said Ed Power, a critic from the Irish Independent. “What he doesn’t get to do much of is jump around beating up bad guys. That’s a shame.”

Go see The Black Panther, now in theaters, and let Marshal Magazine know what you think of the film.
