�Avengers: Endgame�

Avengers: Endgame nailed to mix humor, pain, happiness. This film is the most humane film from all Marvel films! The film truly opens audiences scars by relating themselves with the story whether of lost ones and second chances while at the same still adds humor into the scenes which is just perfect. (But, don�t expect something funny like Ant-Man or Shazam! for example.) How the marketing tries to not give a bit of a clue to the audience from the trailer and anything is a great one, which makes the audience surprised. This film is something you will not expect. You will cry either from sadness, happiness or just by being touched. Very great applause to the Russo Brothers!!!!...Read more
