The Avengers is the long awaited film from comic book fan-boys. Since 2008's Iron Man, Marvel fans have been wanting this and it does deliver. I was a little skeptical at first but Joss Whedon does pull this off. The film stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Tom Hiddleston, and Samuel L. Jackson.
The movie is about Loki steals a magical cube to open a portal to control an alien force so the humans will bow down to him. So The Avengers have to assemble to stop him. That is all of the plot, which makes it the only major problem with this movie, is that the story is to generic. However, Whedon's dialogue and the chemistry between the cast saves it.
Mark Ruffalo gives the most interesting performance. He is also in my opinion the first one to get Hulk right. He plays him as nice guy, but someone at any time is able to snap. He pulls off that tension I think better the Ed Norton and Eric Bana. Tom Hiddleston as Loki although his character did not have that much depth, he was chewing scenery. It reminded me of villainous performance that Gary Oldman we do back in the 90s.
The action is imaginative, but most if its CGI. It doesn't make you feel the pain that great action scenes do. Also sometimes the camera was to close in to where I could not see what was going on. Still its a fun time at the Cinema.
