Film review: ‘Avengers: Endgame’ wants to be your shrink3 min read . Updated: 26 Apr 2019, 10:15 AM IST
- Joe and Anthony Russo’s film is mostly about coming to terms with grief
- This is also a final showcase for the original Avengers team
It’s a happy coincidence that the final Avengers film is releasing in the same month as the last season of Game of Thrones. Both series find themselves in a similar place, with most of the remaining characters gathered in one place, awaiting a winner-takes-all battle. There’s something of the hard-won nostalgia of the first two Thrones episodes in Avengers: Endgame, as characters who haven’t met in years sit and drudge up memories and regrets. Much of the first half of the Russo brothers’ film is contemplative, even elegiac – which has also been the mood in Winterfell this season.
