Marvel's The Avengers Reviews
Positives: Every single one of those perfect not so perfect heroes,
1. The characters; this is a no brainer! Without these awesome characters this film would be nothing. They honestly shape this film and their banter and chemistry with one another is awesome! There are a lot of humorous as well as heartfelt moments which all lend to an awesome film!
2. The villain; Loki in my opinion is the best villain of the MCU. He has motivation you understand and his rivalry with Thor is mesmerizing! Tom Hiddleston once again does a fantastic job as this character and he was the perfect villain for this movie.
3. The action; all of the action is done well! There is quite a lot of CGI, but it doesn't get in the way of the film, and because of these awesome characters all the action and explosions have weight to them. If these characters hadn't been characterized properly, and it didn't have a well made story then this film would've probably turned out like a Transformers movie. Thankfully that was not the case and all the action was awesome!
I have no cons with this film that I can think of. The Avengers is one of the best comic book films I've ever seen! It is by far one of the best things Marvel has ever done and it was one of the most fun I've had watching a movie! Even if you aren't a comic book fan I guarantee you will enjoy this film! Don't go into this movie expecting a mindless action movie like Transformers, this film is a lot more deep than that.

Wow! What can I say. I've seen this movie four times now! I went opening night, saw it a couple more times over the next two weeks, and then again the day it crossed the $600 million barrier! Joss Whedon has created a masterpiece! I honestly can't say who my most favorite character in the film is, nor who utters the best line, because the entire thing is just AWESOME! I felt like a kid again watching Saturday morning cartoons as Iron Man (Robert Downey, Jr.), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Captain America (Chris Evans), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), Widow (Scarlett Johansson), the Incredible Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), and Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) team up to defeat Loki (Tom Hiddleston) and the Chitauri army from invading Earth. The idea of taking all of these superheroes and putting them together in one movie was not only a brilliant one, but a timely one as well. Honestly, Marvel Studios took a huge risk, but it has paid off BIG TIME! What an incredible movie! And judging by the amount of money it has made thus far, I'm not the only who feels this way! Well done Marvel!
