Part of the journey is the end. After 22 films over the past 11 years, the Infinity Saga of the Marvel Cinematic Universe comes to a close.

And with that, Avengers: Endgame is now the highest-grossing film of all time with $2.796 billion at the global box office, beating out Avatar which has held the top spot since 2009.

Here’s what Avengers: Endgame is about:

The grave course of events set in motion by Thanos that wiped out half the universe and fractured the
Avengers ranks compels the remaining Avengers to take one final stand in Marvel Studios’ grand
conclusion to twenty-two films, Avengers: Endgame.

I reviewed Avengers: Endgame on 4K Blu-ray and even though the film was upscaled to 4K, it made the film look even better. The 4K Blu-ray supports Dolby Atmos sound, Dolby Vision and HDR10.

Avengers: Endgame looks great that is packed with action, heart and funny moments. Each of the characters and settings come with a lot of details, which are more noticeable in the 4K version of the film.

Even though a lot of this film was made in front of green screens, you can really see all the time and effort that went into creating these computer-generated backdrops.

The soundtrack for Avengers: Endgame, is great and bombastic that help adds to the experience and immerse you in the film.
