It's an episodic movie, so it shines in parts, rather than as a whole, but there are plenty of good parts.

2. Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

The MCU's long goodbye to the Avengers (is it really?) comes off as truly epic and thunderously exciting. But here's the big surprise-it's also an emotional wipeout

Avengers: Endgame isn't as brash, surprising, or relentless as its predecessor but it's a worthy conclusion to the Infinity War duology and provides a satisfying end to the First Avengers Era.

For young adults who have literally grown up with these movies, the experience may be emotionally overwhelming.

5. Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times

The Motion Picture Academy never recognizes great acting if it comes attached to a costume or a cape. That doesn't mean Downey isn't deserving of an Oscar. It's great acting in a great film.

6. Kim Newman, Sight and Sound

The last-reel battle pretty much has to be the most satisfying superhero movie set piece of all time, delivering the multiple closures this long-in-the-telling saga needs.

Spellbinding, surprising, and immensely satisfying. Eleven years, twenty-two films, one singular cinematic achievement the likes of which we've never seen before and aren't likely to again for a long time to come.

8. Jesse Hassenger, The Week

Infinity War may have proved that Marvel can pull off a massive superhero crossover event, but Endgame shows how much better these movies are when they pay attention to people, too.

9. Bill Watters, Bleeding Cool

A grand finale that almost lives up to the anticipation levels that have built up around this monster set of stories.

10. Josh Terry, Deseret News (Salt Lake City)

For a three-hour movie, "Endgame" is anything but bloated, with a wealth of poetic and pleasing moments.

11. Brad Keefe, Columbus Alive

"Endgame" sticks this landing in ways that are thrilling, funny and emotional, and it does it by executing both on story and characters.

[I]t is slick and affectionate enough for its three-hour running time to pass quickly.

13. Pablo Fernandez, Vix

Avengers: Endgame is exceptional because it has the only thing that the MCU lacked until now: a closure, a sort of conclusion that really feels like the end of an era, and the beginning of a new one.
