Three hours sitting down watching a movie could be boring, but Tony Stark and his crew in “Avengers: Endgame” will certainly change your mind.

The film came out April 26 and has been a smash success so far. Across the world, it’s getting 5 star reviews, and has already made nearly $2.2 billion. In box office history it’s the second highest grossing film ever, behind the 2009 movie “Avatar.”

Directed by Anthony Russo and Joe Russo, and written by Stan Lee, Jim Starlin, and Jack Kirby, “Endgame” follows now “Avengers,” “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” and “Avengers: Infinity War,” which came out last year. There are 22 total movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Kate Quimby ’19, a follower of all the “Avengers” movies, couldn’t stop talking about the movie when she saw it on Saturday, April 27.

“I enjoyed the progression of all the characters and seeing how they’ve changed throughout the series and where they are now,” she said. “There were a ton of shocking moments within the film that kept me on the edge of my seat.”

Kate believed it was a great way to end the series and she found herself very satisfied.

“It was absolutely the best one yet because there was a lot more in the movie than just fighting like previous ones have had,” she said. “I got to see connections being made and how the team came together to risk it all and save one another.”

Kate said Captain America is “hands down” her favorite character.

“He’s America’s hero and never seems to get old,” she said.

The Wall Street Journal raved about the film. “Avengers: Endgame,” succeeds at its daunting task: summing up an epic struggle with bedazzling action.”

On the other hand, English teacher Jacob Rivers said he was rather disappointed after seeing the movie; he said he didn’t get what he wanted out of it.

“I didn’t think it lived up to all the hype it had behind it,” he said. “It was cool to see all the story lines come together and to see how the team handled things but I thought using time travel was a cop out and they didn’t really address the complexity of it.” Rivers did admit to enjoying the way the Incredible Hulk was portrayed.

Although the critics are saying “it’s the best one yet” in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Rivers was more partial to Black Panther.

“I personally thought Black Panther was the best movie yet,” he said.
