Avengers: Endgame represents the culmination of an unprecedented era of success for Marvel, so you can forgive them the indulgence of a victory lap, which is what the final hour of this film is. All the big moments are there, including some payoffs you’d forgotten you even wanted. Even a story as jam packed as this one doesn’t quite justify a three-hour running time (the middle hour sags with self-satisfaction); but the capper, a battle of unprecedented scale, reminds you of the magnitude of the achievement and delivers beautifully on a promise eleven years in the making.
