YohnJust watched it. Was a good film, the ending was nice enough after the many years we’ve been watching the marvel cinematic universe. The captain America ending was one of the highlights of the film for me; glad he got the ending Cap deserved. But I can’t help but feel, just a bit disappointed. For one, I completely hate the way they changed Thor. In IW he was built up to be this absolute one-man-army destroying machine. Then this? Please. Again, same with Thanos. In the previous avengers film, he’s just an outstanding villain, an absolute brute and the biggest alpha male, period. Then they make his character go full emo mode and honestly a bit underwhelming. Yes he kicks some ass later, but not enough ass. I appreciate the Easter eggs through out the film, and seeing fan favourite characters again like Korg and Groot. The end battle scene was fun, a bit messy perhaps but still enjoyable. Classic avengers style. 2 big fuck-off armies with the heroes thrown in the mix.
Yeah, pretty good film. For me Infinity War is the much better film of the two. End Game just didn’t have me on the edge of my seat like IW did. Apologies if you disagree, this is just one man’s opinion.
My take on these changes:
I don't think they really changed Thor, after he kills Thanos it's more or less an empty victory because half of the universe have been dead for 5 years, and he felt personally responsible because he had the chance to initially kill Thanos if he "just went for the head". He's a fallen hero that has lost his willpower
I don't think Thanos' character is really different either, his entire purpose in life was to balance the Universe, and he accomplished it. He was practically done fighting, he served his purpose and basically in his mind he made it so no one could reverse it.
If you're talking about later in the movie about 2014 Thanos, then he never really fought his own battles, it was only after Age of Ultron where he says he'll do it himself (2015 movie). It's why he's still passive during the final battle, it was only after Ultron & Ronan & Loki failed that he decided to take matters into his own hands.
