It's little surprise this is largely a terrifically enjoyable experience -- one that'll please both fanboys and the public at large.

If big action so big it's humongous just isn't really your thing/You may find, as I did, it drags, with its surfeit of CGI bling.

Is Avengers Assemble the best comic book film ever? That's a tough call but it's certainly the most exciting, and a true epic moment in cinematic history.

Joss Whedon knows exactly what comic-book geeks want to see. That's why "Marvel's The Avengers" is so immensely satisfying.

If we must have these box-office behemoths, then at least the writer-director, Joss Whedon, creator of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, is a lively controlling influence.

Of course it's about one hundred times brighter than Transformers and Michael Bay's imbecilic spinoffs, and should keep multiplexes everywhere in its competent grip. But I didn't love it.

The special effects are impressive but not especially imaginative, and the film is unduly protracted.

For all who have hotly fan-ticipated this all-star collection of Marvel's superheroes, you have reason to be excited. You can officially geek out now.

The Avengers does have is a solid gold structure that doesn't buckle under the weight of its gargantuan expectations and overflowing cast.

Smart, witty, funny, action-packed and surprisingly cathartic.

The bigger and goofier it gets, the more fun it becomes.

A fun light-hearted summer blockbuster that is weighed down by a forgettable villain.

If you're not already a fanboy, it'll turn you into one. It is honestly the most fun I have had at the movies in a long, long time.

After two-and-a-half hours of world-threatening chaos and world-saving derring-do, you leave the theater satisfied, but without so much as a single memorable image (or idea) lingering in your mind.

Fast-paced superhero series sequel will be fun for fans.

Joss Whedon empties everything at his reported $225 million disposal to assault the eyes, ears and intelligence with one of the stupidest comic book tales ever put to film.

Whedon must balance the competing storylines and screen time of the actors. He does it nicely, injecting humour and a touch of drama into the action -- and all without so much as a Tesseract to his name. Some assembly required, and delivered.

One of the ten best films of 2012.

But one of the most fascinating moments in the picture occurs when Captain America, referring to Thor, notes: "There's only one God, ma'am. And I'm pretty sure he doesn't dress like that." Ah, monotheism versus paganism. Can they exist side by side?

Kirk Baird

Whedon has delivered that rare action-packed, special-effects spectacle that is relentless in its eagerness to please and successful beyond its goal.
