After the events of Avengers: Infinity War, the Avengers find themselves in a desperate situation. Thanos has wreaked havoc on the universe leaving the Earth and everywhere else decimated. Tony Stark is lost in space. The Avengers are scattered and doing their best to be heroic. However, the cloud of what has happened hangs over everything. However, there is still a glimmer of hope. With that hope, the Avengers must somehow come back together to face their biggest opponent and try to save now just the world, but the universe!
Avengers: Endgame is a beautiful looking movie both on the big screen and also on a big television at home. The colors look amazing. The special effects are incredible. The viewing experience is engaging and completely enjoyable. The audio that accompanies this film is equally epic. It fills the room and creates an immersive listening experience. Couple the two and this is a movie you want to have a nice television with a solid sound system for. It really makes for an enjoyable, albeit stressful at times, movie viewing experience!
This movie is one that is just built for extras. After ten years of building the Marvel Cinematic Universe up to the events of this film, there is a LOT to talk about and a lot of questions to answer. The bonus features included with Avengers: Endgame begins the process of doing that. There are some very enjoyable featurettes included with this release. Some of them are quite touching. Others are just awesome! Really, the only complaint I can come up with for this release is that there aren’t more. I want a TON more bonus features about this film. I’m hoping that will come in a future release. These were fun to watch but I just want more!
Normally I would suggest specific extras that stand out or fall behind with a movie’s release. However, this time I really did enjoy all of them. While I’m not a huge gag reel fan, the DAPS MAGIC team that reviewed this release with me assured me that it was quite enjoyable. That would be the weakest link for me with the entire release. That being said, watch each and every one of these features. You won’t regret it. I would also encourage you to make sure you have access to the Digital Exclusive feature: Steve and Peggy: One Last Dance.

Avengers: Endgame is a movie that can be watched and rewatched if you have the energy. It packs a lot of emotional punches and I was surprised at how exhausted I was after watching it. I really liked this movie. It is a solid movie that does a fantastic job of connecting so many different dots from ten years of movies! The technology they used to recreate some of the moments from the last ten years of movies was incredible! The character stories also made a lot of sense and were awesome at times and poignant at others. Being able to watch it at home really is the best way to be able to watch it. I definitely enjoyed this film in the theatres but found it even more enjoyable at home. This is definitely a movie to get for the home entertainment library so make sure and get it! It easily gets a hat tip from me!
