Avengers: Endgame has finally hit cinemas – and it seems that the superhero epic is winning near universal approval.
Marvel’s epic conclusion to the Infinity Saga currently boasts an impressive score of 96 percent, after receiving some 107 “fresh” reviews and 4 “rotten”.
A Critics Consensus description states: “Exciting, entertaining, and emotionally impactful, Avengers: Endgame does whatever it takes to deliver a satisfying finale to Marvel’s epic Infinity Saga.”
It ranks among the highest of Marvel’s offerings and is only beaten by the likes of Black Panther (the highest rating at 97%). Other similarly high offerings include Iron Man (93%), Thor: Ragnarok (92%), Spider-Man: Homecoming (92%) and The Avengers (92%).
This comes after the first reactions hailed Endgame as one of the greatest superhero movies of all time.
Critic Eric Eisenberg wrote on Twitter: “This can’t be understated:
#AvengersEndgame is everything you want it to be and more. I am absolutely floored.
“A perfect reflection on the last 11 years that pays off everything in the best way possible. Without question my new favourite Marvel Cinematic Universe film. Stunned.”
In a five star review, NME’s Olly Richards wrote: “Whether your heart belongs to the original team or one of the newbies, you’ll see them get their time to shine. You will almost certainly cry. Probably more than once,” our review stated.
“Is it the best comic-book movie ever? The Dark Knight could give it a very good fight, but Endgame has more fighters on its team. It might just win.”
