Agreed. It's enjoyable, it generally ties all the preceding movies together fairly well.
There's part of me that wishes they had found almost any other plot mechanic to wrap up the story with, particularly after reading some of comments/exchanges from people in this discussion.
The mechanic always creates as many or more plot problems as it solves, but it serves the logistics of making a massive movie-series finale well. Trade-offs, I guess. I never read the source material comic books, but as I understand it the original comics didn't bother themselves too much with plot holes, and we probably shouldn't hold the movies to a higher standard.
Endgame is fun. It's overall well done. It accomplishes the goal of being a finale. Just don't think about the details too hard.EDIT x2 to remove potential spoilers:
I do want to say that I liked Endgame more than Infinity War. For me Infinity War had too many moments of Thanos do ridiculously (literally, ridiculous) powerful stuff that broke the "rules"
creating huge plot-holes and questions that killed my willing-suspension of disbelief. Like...
...I wanted to throw in the towel after Infinity War. I went to Endgame with really low expectations. Endgame, thankfully, is able to pull back from most of Infinity War's nonsense and was better than I expected.
