(85) There are places footage might have been trimmed from Endgame, but the slow first act is essential in creating a sense of loss in the audience. These opening minutes help make the finale more meaningful than your standard army-of-expendable-foes MCU fireworks.

All things considered, it’s a respectable end to the Avengers as we’ve known them.
