i think this is a must watch movie. i am not a big fan of superheromovies. even tough i watched it because my friends dragged me to watchit and i must say i didn't get bored a single second of it. the actionis awesome and the dialogs makes the movies one of the funniest moviesever. the credit should go to iron man and hulk who makes it all happenthrough out the story. just two words "simply amazing". there is no bigdifference in 3D and normal screens but i-max should make it look evenbetter. my rating for the movie on a scale of 1 to 10, action - 9comedy - 10 story - 9 overall - 10 (because it is an excellent movie).i would recommend you to watch the iron man, Thor, captain Americamovies before watching this. if you are not good at understandingEnglish, then use subtitles because it would be a shame to miss ahilarious line in it

I went in expecting a lot from this film considering all i had heardbut came back disappointed.The story was quite good and Whedon's directing was very good , thescript was good but not great , it required more serious scenes and thehumor was good but so predictable and too much of it made ruined thefilm a little , that is for me of course.The Acting was good all around . Tom Hiddleston stood out in terms ofacting among the cast , Robert Downey Jr. was great like he always isbut his dialogues were a little over done as compared to Iron Man 1 & 2, Mark Ruffalo acted very well and I think was better than Norton.The Ending Battle Sequence was amazing especially the sequence withHulk and Loki ,the visual effects were great and it had quite asatisfying endingIf this film had more serious scenes as compared to the humor and ifthe humor was written slightly better.This Film was so over hyped that I expected too much from it and endedbeing disappointed , It was called the best comic book film of all timewell The Dark Knight , X-2 , X-Men First Class , Batman Begins ,Spider- Man 2 and Iron Man were all better than this , though that'sjust according to me.So all in all a good film but not the epic superhero team up movie Iwas expecting Rating - 7.5/10

When I first saw the trailer for this movie I thought it looked prettycool, and when the review started coming in I immediately got excited. When I finally got to see the movie I realized after the first 20minutes that this wasn't the movie I was hoping for. Now let me explainwhy.I can start off with the script. The script is not good, by adding someover-dramatic, cheesy and boring dialogue doesn't make a movie good.But the script isn't terrible, some of the cheesy comments fits withthe dialogue and makes you laugh a little. But the one thing that is directly terrible with this movie is thestory. For those of you who don't know the story, it goes like this;Thor's evil brother Loki has come to the earth to claim it as his, andthen he gets a thing called the Tesseract, and afters that he opens aportal so his alien army can enter the earth to take control over it.But then Nick Fury brings together the superhero team called ''TheAvengers'' to stop him. I don't think it's necessary for me to startexplaining why the story is so terrible, most people should understandwhy. And I know a lot of people have claimed that the film don't need a goodscript or story because it's so entertaining. Well, I don't agree. Thefirst 1 and a half hours of the movie is really boring, and I actuallyconsidered leaving the cinema, but then the movie catch up with somereally cool and visually stunning scenes. Some things in this movie was good, like most of the acting, the CGIand some of the dialogue. But overall this is just an average popcornmovie with a superhero flick.

Harboring a great deal of expectation of this record-breakingmulti-superhero-in-a-row action mash-up, I finally caught up the lastchance to watch it on the big screen, but unfortunately the film hasindomitably become my very first disappointment in 2012. Alerted by the general opinion of "if you can survive the boring first60 minutes, the latter part will blow you away", maybe "boring" is alesser word, the inter-conversations among these superheroes are waytoo tedious to arouse any interest, and in light of my last encounterwith THOR (2011), I know he is a boredom, then here comes his worsentwin, Captain America, so it is dumb and dumber situation. Most ofcharacters are reprising their usual roles, Robert Downey Jr.'ssleekness is being harnessed into its maximum quota. So I assume theonly revelation could come from Jeremy Renner's Hawkeye, the newcomeron screen, and the third candidate of Hulk, Mark Ruffalo, but the truthis they might be a clear torrent, but cannot save this juggernaut frombeing a destroy-it-all dross. The fighting scenes are the saving grace here which is not a falseclaim, but it satisfies my eyes without compensates my soul, directorJoss Whedon just haphazardly levels everything in Manhattan without anysingle casualty provided to imply its minimum credibility. No worriesat all, we simply witnessed an empty and meaningless catastrophewithout any mind activity as we all know Iron Man will not be thesacrifice as a sequel is already set on a release date. Thus, am Iover-demanding here? After the invasion of myriads of this sort ofbig-budget action flicks, THE AVENGERS is no way a standout by anymeans, none of its actors could stick out with any arresting existence(I might be too desperate to count out Gwyneth Paltrow), Mark Ruffalois the closest choice of a decent acting in it, all the rest is justthe way he or she is, an utterly featherweight character study is thecase here. The gags are scarce (ooh, poor Loki), too much SCI-FI doctrines and thenarrative in dead earnest (thanks to you, Mr. Samuel L. Jackson) makesthe film's lengthy screen time too overt to be slighted, and I waiteduntil the end-credit rolled over, but a second bonus scenes never showoff. The film's huge success has baffled me so much and its staggeringstatus of the third biggest grossing film of all time (after AVATAR2009 and TITANIC 1997) does make me do some solemn post-mortem toquestion my taste, the conclusion could be that I may be detached fromthe majority's liking, which thankfully I believe heralds a good signfor me, right?

Although Marvel Pictures have always made curious appointments inregards to their feature film directors the results have been mostlysolid, if not spectacular thus far. I certainly didn't expect JonFaverau to deliver one of the best comic-book movies ever Â Iron Man.If it wasn't for DC's own Billionaire playboy superhero would'vechampion Iron Man as the best flick in the genre. Yes I do rate IronMan that highly. Spider-Man 1 & 2 were good but didn't exactly capturethe essence of Peter Parker while Spider-Man 3 was a huge mess, notMark Steven Johnson mess, but a mess nonetheless. Last year's motionpicture debuts of Marvel staples Thor and Captain America were alsovery good, very faithful to their respective source material. JoeJohnston redeemed himself after a misguided attempt at bringing theWolfman back to the silver screen, whereas Kenneth Branaghs Shakespearesensitive's proved a stroke of genius in fitting Thor into Marvel'smotion picture universe. To be honest I even enjoyed 2008's TheIncredible Hulk after Ang Lee damn near killed the franchise.Even though Marvel Pictures has proved time and again to make the rightdecisions when producing a movie on its own, the hiring of Joss Whedonseemed like an odd choice. Of course Joss Whedon is the genius behindTV-cult hits like Buffy, Angel and Firefly but his only foray intodirecting was 2005's Serenity. Managing all those superstar egos,handling multiple character arcs, dealing with several multimilliondollar franchises and making everyone happy from top brass executivedown to the hardcore fanboys Â to be honest, I wouldn't have entrustedhim with a fraction of the $200-million-plus budget for The Avengers.Thus far only two directors have managed to pull off the impossible andaccomodated several superheroes in a single movie Â Bryan Singer (X-Men& X2) and Matthew Vaughn (X-Men First Class) while Brett Ratner ruinedX-Men 3 with his unfocused direction. At first I thought Joss Whedonwould do an even more terrible job than the latter, considering thatRatner had more filmmaking experience than Whedon at the time offilming X3. But nothing could be further from the truth. Joss Whedon isthe MASTER, with a captial M.Let me say it out loud: JOSS WHEDON IS A COMIC BOOK MOVIE GOD. Unlike Ratner he actually cares about the characters and theirdevelopment throughout the movie. You think Tony Stark would just waltzthrough the movie and roll over every other character? You are wrong.Though Robert Downey Jr. is in top form as he always is when he donsthe Iron Man suit, the other characters are far from underdeveloped anddon't crumble under the pressure of his larger-than-life persona. Ifanything it's the Hulk that absolutely steals the show. That said, Ithink we have found the definitive Bruce Banner, Mark Ruffalo, heabsolutely owns the role. He is the Hulk and we finally got the Hulk wedeserved. Everybody brings their A-game and every character gets a fairamount of screen time. I can't find any flaw in this movie. Of coursethe special effects are spectacular but it's the dialogue that won meover. Really. Each character in this movie has at least one or twomemorable lines Â not just Tony Stark. When you watch the Avengers makesure you listen to the dialogue carefully Â I've never heard dialoguethis witty in any comic movie, and I've watched my fair share. JossWhedon you are the freaking man. They said it was impossible toaccommodate this many characters in a single movie Â they were wrong.From now on everyone will reference this movie whenever multiplelarger-than-life figures are thrown into one supersized extravaganza ÂYeah I'm slamming the last two Transformers flicks. I guarantee JossWhedon would've done justice to the franchise. After watching theAvengers everything that bears the name of Joss Whedon is a must-seefor me now. Final verdict: 10 out of 10. This movie is Iron Man on steroids. Gowatch that movie!!!

The Avengers represents everything that's bad in a hero movie. In myopinion, this movie should be nominated for one of the mostdisappointing movie of the year. The movie is not funny, barely actionand has a terrible plot. the villain in the movie, Loki, was the mostbad villain character in the history of movies and not in the good way.I hope for me and for everybody else that there will not be a sequel,because it will ruin everything that batman has built about a comicsmovie. I was merciful and gave it 3/10 because Robert Downey Jr.succeed to do something good in this movie, but for the rest of thecast, you owe me 2.5 hours from my life.
Ofentse Mwase 11 May 2013
I went into this movie with very high expectations cause I watched allthe trailers about 30 times each. I will say from the very first 10minutes of the films I was instantly blown away by the action and thecourse of the story. All the characters in this film get an equalamount of screen time, which is usually the problem in a film where youdeal with multiple characters such as in this film. I applaud JossWhedon for making this Marvel Masterpiece, the way everything fitstogether in this film is truly amazing and its close to impossible tofind any holes in the story. Mr Whedon was the perfect person to havedealt with telling this story as he's a comic book fan, he nailed it100%. I believe i'm going to see this film again tomorrow, it is justthat awesome. Hulk will give you a fun time in this film, watch out!
shahriyar-ovi 10 May 2013
Couldn't stop laughing for its witty humor. The whole Cineplex was justquivering with the clapping sound in each flash of action :p Though thestarting with introduction part was a bit shaky; quick entrance ofsuperhero conflict action just swabbed that flaw :p Initially Iron Mandominated over the screen; but HULK utterly stole the show after hisunleash :p He's always angry and that's the little secret of him :p Hiswrathful countenance, furious attitude, broad grin, turbulent smash andpunch, the way he thrashed Loki repeatedly-----AHAAAAAAA â¥ Beside theappearance of Hulk and Iron Man, other heroes of Avengers seemed asonly some effective sidekicks. Loki was well enough to trouble all withhis villainy. Special-effects and action sequence demand applause.Desiring keenly for its sequel :)))
amethystwings32 10 May 2013
I like comic books but as much as anyone, and I am sure it isentertaining! But it also seem animated like a live action cartoon !Which is cool I guess, for men who have never grown up! And wished thatthey had super powers, parading in their out there costumes. Rescuingthe world from Super Villains! So they could be declared a hero ! Thatis the mentality that makes movies,like this so popular! In a nutshell, because it has elements that peeks their interest. Specialeffects, action, babes in cat suits! and the battle between SuperVillains and Super Heroes! To sum it up the ultimate dude flick! Theonly plus side for us women ! Was Robet Downey Jr reprising his alterego Iron man. And Chris Hemsworth reprising his role as the thunder godThor!

The Avengers is the best movie I have ever seen my whole life. WithoutStan Lee and Jack Kirby the Avengers would not have even been athought. without the comic books Joss Whedon would have never have hadan idea of where to start.The Avengers starts out kind of slow but you get to know the charactersbetter that way. A lot of the movie had me on the edge of my seat withmy Joker smile. the Hulk transformations to me were like opening tonsof gifts on Christmas and jumping up and down for joy. seeing the Hulksmile made me laugh, he has nice teeth. the fights were all soincredible they made me so happy all three times i saw the movie. theAvengers was so well written and the cast was perfect to me. seeingThanos made me gasp in excitement. Thanos is one of those guys you lookat and you say to yourself I know that dude is evil. He is a majormajor bad guy in the Marvel universe.If you have not seen the Avengersyet WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU? I hope you enjoy my review,I did not wantto give a lot away.

Some sad news and some happy news. Sad news: so far, it looks like wecan expect an overall sour year for the movies just like 2011 was. Oh,well. Happy news: there will be at least one great film to remember atthe end of the year. And next year. And the year after that. "TheAvengers" is the movie that comic-book fans, as well as the entireworld, have been awaiting for a long time. Take me, for example. I'mone of a handful of people from my generation who has never read acomic book. So I know nothing about how this movie, or the films thatpredated it, follow their source material. I saw this film with a crowdof folks, many of whom undoubtedly were familiar with the comics, and Ithink I cherished it just as much as they did. It is one tremendouslysmashing movie; one not to be missed! I need not report that the filmbrings together the heroes of recent Hollywood extravaganzas. What I doneed to report is just how seamlessly and smoothly that transition is.The movie brings together the characters of the "Iron Man" movies,"Captain America: the First Avenger," "Thor," and the "Hulk" pictureswhile paying idiosyncratic respect to each of their characteristics andpersonalities. None overshadows or takes away from the other. Hard toimagine, since it features Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.), one of thebiggest egotists in recent movie history. Yet he does not steal theshow from the mostly personality-free Captain 'America' Rogers (ChrisEvans). The same applies to the "in-between characters" such as NickFury (an eye patch-toting Samuel L. Jackson) who seem to bind thesesagas together.That is the key to this movie's success: the way it brings thesecharacters together and allows them to play off each other'spersonalities. The casting is also perfect! Robert Downey, Jr. is nostranger to praise from me and he shells in another solid performancewithout, I must reiterate, taking away attention from his co-stars,which is something he would have done if he were as egotistical as hischaracter. Chris Evans, as Captain America, has more to do than he didin his source picture: a movie I was not too enthralled by. The sameapplies to Chris Hemsworth as the extra-terrestrial being Thor, whobefore I thought was just a Triple B: Big Blond Bore. Keeping hisequally boring love interest out (except in a brief reference in themiddle) was a smart choice on the filmmakers' part. And ScarlettJohansson proves James Agee's theory about casting in the movies: it'sabout finding the right people, not the biggest talents. Miss Johannsonis not the biggest or more versatile talent in the movies today, butshe is dead-right for the part of Black Widow.A testament to the strength of the characters. I will not reveal who,but one beloved figure is bumped off. Now a supposedly importantcharacter died in "Captain America: The First Avenger" and my emotionalresponse to that moment was zip, because I did not feel I understoodthat character as a human being. The death scene in "The Avengers" isso strong, and the director gives it just the right amount of time toplay out, that it left the entire auditorium silent...after a big gaspof disbelief.Watching "The Avengers," I was constantly given a sensation that I'vealways adored: the impulse to sit back, eyes wide, and say "Wow! Thatis really cool!" There are sequences in this picture, most of themaction-moments, that are so jaw-droppingly strong and brilliantlyexecuted that they really do make you wonder just how much effort themakers of the movie put into them. It was not all computers; I can tellyou that much. Yet there are parts done exclusively with computers thattruly are impressive and great to look at. The highlights are giantalien worms which fly over and through New York City in the finalsequence. The movie was directed by a promising talent by the name ofJoss Whedon and he demonstrates his discipline as a creative artist inthe movie's thirty-minute final battle. As some folks in Hollywood(Michael Bay in particular) need to learn, it takes discipline andrestraint to make a lengthy battle keep going without losing its edge.Mr. Whedon has both. At the same time, there are laughs in this movieso strong that I found myself still giggling by the time the next scenewas up. I am really tempted to give a few examples, but I don't want tospoil them for anybody who has not seen the picture already.Do I have anything negative to say about "The Avengers." Well, both ofthe epilogue scenes were utterly pointless; I'll admit that. And someof the one-liners placed in the middle of the climax seem out of place,and distracting from the carnage going on around them. Most of mygripes are nitpicks. Key example: the director uses mirrors in severalscenes and there was one, regarding Black Widow and some interrogators,where I wished he had toggled in instead of out. I think you can tell Ihave to get desperate to shell out any complaints.I know a young woman who has seen this picture a total of three timesnow. I am really tempted to go and see it a second time myself. "TheAvengers," which clocks in at two and a half hours, is entertainingfrom beginning to end. It also features some truly memorable music bythe underrated Alan Silvestri. This is the kind of music where you findyourself humming after the movie's over, not just ignoring during theshow. "The Avengers" is worth every penny of the $207 million is hasearned thus far. I hope it gets more. It is one of the best movie-goingexperiences I've had in a long while.

I was anticipating this film so much. I am not one to rush to see afilm the day of release, as I'd rather watch it alone in an emptycinema. A few bated weeks past and I decided it was time to see thefilm everyone was describing as 'The best film they had ever seen'.Unlikely. I began to watch the film, in an almost empty cinema andfound myself bored. I laughed at parts that were not meant to belaughed at and the supposed comedy just left me confused. I made adecision, and walked out of the film half way through. Unsure as towhether the huge hype had just made the film a complete let-down, Idecided to give it another chance when it was released on DVD. Irealised where the film had gone wrong. As a Marvel fan, I knew theback story, the characters and previous movie plots. However theAvengers failed to explain any of this. No character development whatso ever, and although I was aware of the story, I found myself havingto wrack my brain to remember things from the comics. The film is justanother generic superhero movie. Nothing new, nothing special. Irealise this is an unconventional view, but I feel that a lot of peoplewould have enjoyed it because they felt they had to. I guess die hardMarvel fans couldn't claim to dislike the biggest superhero film of alltime !

It's finally here. OH MY GOD. As a big comic fan it's amazing to seehow far the genre has come in the last decade. We finally get starstudded spin-off featuring a large cast of some of the greatestcharacters. If you've been living under a rock, then you may not havenoticed that over the last five years, Marvel have been churning outtheir big hitters and building up to The Avengers. Iron Man, Thor,Captain America and Hulk join forces to stop Thor's brother, Loki andhis alien army. Sure, the plot is simple, but that's what we want for abig smackdown. For any team we need a great leader and Marvel havefound the best in Joss Whedon. With his familiarity with largeensembles he effortlessly gives every hero their due. He also managesto flesh out characters in very short scenes. We get a sense of Starkand Potts relationship, some back story for Black Widow and Hawkeye,the confusion of Rogers and so forth. He does his best work with Hulk.I've loved every incarnation of the Hulk so far, so I was wary ofRuffalo's performance. He captures it perfectly, going for a morenervous and geeky Banner. When the Hulk is unleashed, Whedon makes sureto not take it too seriously. Hulk gets the biggest laughs in thissurprisingly comic film. The action is fantastic, with a number ofexciting set pieces. The final battle has so many wonderful charactermoments immersed in the action, and they really do work as a team.There are a couple of shortcomings. The alien race is just pathetic,and never really feels like a threat. Add to that the whole mother shipdestroyed and every alien dies plot convenience. The film lacks anyreal threat. We hear about the many people Loki kills, but we never seeanything that relates to this. Without seeing the sacrifices made it'shard to get too involved. There are also a few moments where charactersjust happen to show up. These are things that are minor nitpicks. Afterall, the only way to do a perfect Avengers movie would be to have anunlimited budget and unlimited running time. What it does achieve issimply amazing and very exciting for the future of superhero films.
rj-crick 05 May 2013
The movie starts off slow while the plot takes shape and everyone isbrought up to speed on the threat the Earth will soon face. A littletoo much time is spent with the 'peripheral' characters; black widow,Hawkman and Fury but from the moment that one of the key protagonistsfirst goes toe to toe with Loki, the film picks up pace. What followsis entertaining but I think keener fans of the marvel universe willfeel the middle of the film comes just short of deliveringexpectations. For example a fight match-up that was mean't for thebig-screen including two of the most powerful of the entourage left measking for more. All is forgiven though as the action gets better andbetter throughout and by then end when you think you've seen the finaleit just keeps going. The last 30 minutes of the film is the best of anysuperhero flick to date though I do wonder if the budget for CGI couldhave been spread across the earlier parts of the film less thinly. Thehumor throughout is hilarious though at moments it risks taking thematerial not seriously enough as though the cameras stopped rolling andeveryone can stop pretending to be superheroes. One of the heroes isthe butt of the joke more often than fair and doesn't get so manymemorable lines or opportunities to show off like the others so if youhappened to pick this one as a favorite you might be a littledisappointed if not for the fact that the others in the entourage dokick so much ass.
John Smith 02 May 2013
If you want a lot of action then you've come to the right place. If,however, you're looking for something more thoughtful then you've cometo the wrong place.The movie assumes you know who the characters are withoutintroductions. This works to speed up the film at the expense ofbuilding context and tension. Unfortunately, this lack ofcontext/tension makes the action seem empty. The action is great, butjust lacks the right framing to give it that emotional weight to makeme care.The dialogue is too boring for my tastes. I really dislike CaptainAmerica. He's possibly the most boring Marvel character. I don't blameChris Evans (he killed it as Johnny Storm in Fantastic Four). I blamethe character. He's just soooo boring. Fortunately we do have somecomedic moments. I won't spoil them for you.The enemies were generic. Loki is a boring villain. Again, it's not theactor's fault, the dialogue was just boring.The plot has too many holes to suspend my belief. Like so many movies,there's far too many "give me a break!" moments. SHIELD is supposedly asuper top secret ultra elite team so you'd expect a whole lot morecompetence than was shown.I think I would give this film a 6.5/7 if it weren't for the action.I would rate this around a 7.5 if I could. It's between Iron Man 1 andTransformers 1 for me. Avengers has less context/story than Iron Man 1but more maturity than the goofiness of Transformers 1.Your kids will love this though.
atinder 01 May 2013
This movie was lot of fun to watch, I never seen the Captain America orThor movies before. So there so-what knew to me.I liked the fact we had some time with each different superheros beforecome together. I really liked how the movie flowed , it not no-stopaction all way thought.There were calmer scenes in this movie that i found interesting andthey didn't drag on to long to make boring but action sequencing wasoutstanding.First time I have actually liked new Hulk (I was HUGE Huge fan of OldHulk, i Have never given this Hulk a chance) Not fan Thor thought, Ican't seem to be warn, I may need to see his movie next. see more hisback story, same for Captain America.Those actions were edge of your seat stuff and lots of stuff going onat the same time. I hoping for better ending then this movie got, they all go on thereseparate way (For the own sequels lol) I looking forward to sequel, Iwonder if they add other Superheros in the mix 8/10

This movie ROCKS! I've been waiting for this movie for 37 years. JossWhedon nailed it, the action is paced just right, with a good amount ofone liners to keep it light. Robert Downey Jr. has a lot of fun as TonyStark. The story works well and the actors sell their roles with ease.I wasn't sure about Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner, he did alright, buthe's a little too beefy to be Bruce. All the other actors have playedtheir characters before and this just cements their position. Thismovie is better than any of the solo hero movies that led up to it.Hopefully Joss comes back for the next one and can pull it off again. Isaw the IMAX 3D version and while it looked and sounded fantastic, the3D didn't pop as much as it could have. It had some depth but it didn'treally add much. It should make a substantial amount at the the boxoffice, and should get a few nods for the Oscars, but we all know thatwon't happen, the Academy always passes over movies like this. I justwant to state again, this is a great movie, action packed andhilarious.

The Avengers, is one of the nice action packed movie released recently.The movie lived up to the expectation with all the special effects.Another noticeable factor of the movie is the nice humor that they havebought with it. Robert Downey Jr. did an amazing work as the famousIron Man. His performance, as usual, is stand out and his dialogues arealways humorous.Hulk did a great job with his unbeatable strength, no one will evermess with "the other one" in him. He proved that he can even mess witha God!Thor and his "adopted" brother played the key roles for sure. But somehow I felt they didn't utilize Jeremy Renner to his full extend.All in all the movie is a must watch to all the action lovers.http://atomviews.com

This film is overrated. Critics are calling this the best comic bookbased movie ever and I'm just not feeling it. To use an analogy fromthe film, Avengers is an Ant, Batman (Nolan's version) is a Boot.The positives of the movie are the humor (lots of LMAO moments), theaction scenes and I just love seeing these heroes on screen.The big negative was the plot, particularly the plan and motives of theantagonist. It didn't make sense why Loki needed an army from anotherrealm to conquer earth, when he seemed to be doing fine on his own withthat staff of his and manipulating people. While Loki seems to have noproblem traveling back and forth to earth and other realms, why can'tthe space army use the same worm hole he uses? The rules of the game are unclear. Why is it that Loki can blastCaptain America's shield and knock him off his can, but when Thorstrikes Cap's shield it seems to have less impact on Cap than Loki'sblast? How is Thor's hammer able to hold down the Hulk, but when thehammer is laying inside SHIELD's ship, it doesn't drag the whole shipdown or fall through the ship? When Thor is trapped inside that roomfalling toward earth, why can't he use lightening to open it up? Howdoes Thor, when he is supposed to be cut off from earth after theevents in "Thor", know that Loki took the cube and just happens to dropin on the ship where Loki's held captive? How is it that Nick Fury cantouch the cube in the beginning of the film, yet we see in "CaptainAmerica: The First Avenger" the Red Skull opens up the cube by touchingit? In fact, why is Loki going through all this trouble to open up thecube when Skull seemed to do it effortlessly? While the rag doll scenewas funny, how is it that a god with all these magical powers can beslammed around by an earthly creature and affected by Iron Man's blast?Yeah, the government has this brilliant idea of using nukes to protectthe rest of the world without even thinking about firing nukes insidethe worm hole where the threat is coming from.This film is good if you turn your brain off. I found it funny,enjoyable and exciting to watch. Although I was glued to my seat andwill probably get it when it comes out on BluRay, I am not eager to seethis movie in a theater again.So this is far from the best comic book movie ever made (I saw Nolan'smovies multiple times in theaters). It lacks any depth and originalityto claim that title. Maybe it would at least be arguable had theyplugged all the plot holes in the script. Batman is the boot that stepson the Avenger ant. There's The Dark Knight, Batman Begins and then everything else.
pcast99-1 27 April 2013
There was a lot of hype and build up leading up to this movie for thepast few years, and it has finally come and I will say it has lived upto its hype.This movie deals with Thor's brother Loki trying to take over the earthby harnessing the Tesseract, an energy source with immense power. NickFury then assembles Iron Man, Bruce Banner, Captain America, Thor,Black Widow, and Hawkeye to stop him.The movie starts out a little slow, and the plot is very simple, badguy wants to take over the world and will do nothing to stop until hedoes. It's clichÃ©d but still pays off because of the amount of action.The violence itself is cartoon like, so it is safe for all ages.Oneother issue I had was the Hulk only has two appearances in this movie,but in each he is the best hero to watch and definitely makes thismovie awesome. Mark Ruffalo also has given the best performance asBruce Banner yet seen in movies, he has far surpasses Eric Bana andEdward Norton.Joss Whedon understood this movie is about giving audiences what theywant to see with lots of Marvel superhero's in one movie, thrillingaction sequences, humor and pure entertainment.This isn't a perfect movie but it is still a lot of fun to watch andeven if your not a comic book fan you will still like this film,definitely give this a watch.
