Holly on Hollywood

Avengers: Endgame” is the follow-up to “Avengers: Infinity War” – the fourth and final chapter in the Marvel Avengers saga. Set in the aftermath of Thanos’s snap that turned half of all living things into ash (including many MCU superheroes), the galaxy’s remaining heroes struggle to pick up the pieces. The remaining Avengers, Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Black Widow, Hulk, Hawkeye, as well as Captain Marvel, Ant Man and others, must find a way to stop Thanos. Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, Josh Brolin and a superhero cast of others.
The PG-13 epic finale will definitely attract kids, but parents, heed the rating for little ones. There’s language, characters get beat to a pulp, a detailed plot with flashback scenes to previous films, a CGI war, (SPOILER ALERT) a major beloved character dies, and a long running time (182min), make the mature content best for mature kids to adults. “Endgame” is the 22nd entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), since Marvel began creating an interconnected world of superheroes 11 yrs ago. It provides a real ending for the original crew (Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, and the Hulk) to make room for a new era of superheroes. Enjoy the charisma and time given to the MCU ensemble story-line and expect exciting action, a few bombshells, witty dialogue, funny banter, a hilarious Thor as you’ve NEVER seen him, some surprise characters, a super cool CGI war with lots of bad guys and applause-worthy good guys, and in the end, some intense and emotional goodbyes, (grown men around me were wiping their eyes). And sadly, this was the last cameo for Marvel’s creator, Stan Lee. It’s truly frustrating not being able to give more plot details but I’m sticking with the filmmaker’s request to keep the “secrets” and not spoil it for the fans.
