Endgame meets expectations without really ever exceeding them.
The Goonies has stood the test of time because of its writings and how the screenplay transcends onto film. Great character understanding and relationships is also a key element in its success.
For the most part, the film is successful, mainly because Marvel has done a pretty masterful job of laying the groundwork during the past decade of MCU movies.
Day of the Soldado is this potential Sicario trilogy’s attempt at doing the Dark Knight. It shares the same universe as the first film but is essentially another self contained story.
They made everything bigger, shinier, they added double the amount of characters, but more importantly they retained the spirit of the original. They also added Josh Brolin, who always improves a film. It had a bit of everything; humour, romance, sadness, violence, incredible visuals and a perfect score.
This is a very well directed and well shot film, actually all the tech stuff is great, editing, sound all top notch. I will also give the film a ton of credit for taking a well worn plot, the war against drugs and coming at it from a different angle.
