Avengers: Endgame: I watched the leaked footage and wasn’t spoiled (spoiler-free)


Since I noticed Avengers: Endgame Tuesday, most of my co-workers have averted me just like the plague. I am going to stroll right into a room, and earlier than I even begin speaking somebody will maintain up a hand to silence me. My short-term shunning stems from a deep rooted worry: nobody needs Endgame spoiled for them. 

And I say to all of them: I perceive and I sympathize. We’re 11 years, 22 movies and practically 48 hours of runtime into the MCU franchise. Being instructed secondhand what occurs within the movie, as an alternative of attending to expertise it your self, actually sucks. (Until you are into spoilers. Hey, no judgments.)

So when the Endgame footage leaked final week I, too, tried to maintain my head down. However my workforce rapidly realized somebody from CNET going to the screener ought to really learn the spoilers beforehand to see how figuring out the spoilers would impression viewing. You recognize, for “science.” 

I requested myself, heroically, what would the Avengers do? And I took one for the workforce by studying by the spoilers and watching the leaked footage. (Simply in case it must be clarified, there’s nothing really heroic about watching grainy YouTube clips on Reddit. That was hyperbole.)

Going into the movie spoiled, I had combined expectations. I used to be underwhelmed by the footage I noticed. If these had been the spoilers we had been getting, would this even be a great movie? 

Spoiler alert (not an precise spoiler): Endgame is wonderful, as our CNET reviewer Michael Sorrentino says.    

Avengers: Endgame is totally deserving of the hype and wait. For a three-hour movie, it is terribly tight. I would be hard-pressed to provide you with any scenes that might have been reduce or shortened. It was difficult sufficient for me and a colleague to determine the place you need to take rest room breaks.

Avengers: Endgame is an exhilarating sequel to each MCU…


So why did the spoilers lead me astray? First off, they weren’t that spoilery. Most of the leaks had been reveals that frankly may’ve been within the trailer, had Marvel chosen to be much less cagey. So far as I may discover, any end-of-the-movie spoilers (like which characters die and/or survive) weren’t really leaked. Although possibly I did not dig deep sufficient.

Second, the six minutes of poorly recorded footage I seen won’t ever seize the timing, tempo and scope of these scenes within the context of the movie. Endgame is a three-hour movie. And the scenes resonate a lot extra within the movie than they do awkwardly spliced collectively. 

All I can say is if you happen to watched the footage or learn some spoilers beforehand and are cautious of Endgame, do not be. It is nonetheless price your time. I am already planning to see it once more Friday. And possibly subsequent week in IMAX.
