As with Thor: Ragnarok, I can't believe so many people actually liked this movie. Many of these points may have already been touched upon, but...

Didn't like what they did with the Hulk; did he do anything Hulk-ish the entire movie? His big contribution to the story was to debate with the Ancient One as Banner. He did throw a bench, I guess.
Didn't like the gravitas of Thor being sucked away by being reduced to comic relief. Again.
Captain Marvel was built up as being pivotal to the conclusion... then written out of the story almost entirely, only returning at the end for a cheap dramatic moment.
Cap grabbing the hammer was a big, thrilling moment... that amounted to nothing. Should've been a turning point in the fight, instead he just got his butt kicked some more.
The time travel story was a big, rambling, incoherent mess. And the plot of visiting-all-our-past-movies didn't do much for me.
No one at the military base guards the Tesseract, Tony can just walk in and grab it? And his dad isn't suspicious of a stranger hanging out in that area?
The snap still happened, right? Everyone was just brought back five years later, and the stones were then returned to the past? So the stones still got destroyed by Thanos? Didn't the Ancient One say that losing the time stone would kind of doom the universe or something?
We never saw the reaction of the world at large to the disappearances or the return (Cap's support group barely counts).
And yeah, Peter's buddy either failed five grades or the entire cast of Far From Home just happened to be included in the original snap. Too much of a stretch.
They write a story with the Avengers splitting up to visit the hiding places of the stones, and Cap doesn't meet the Red Skull? Big missed opportunity.
I honestly couldn't believe they capped off such an excellent run of movies with this mess.
edit: and another thing... epic cgi battle scenes have grown boring and unimaginative.
