After the hype surrounding The Avengers it was either going to be extremely good or extremely poor and thankfully Joss Whedon has successfully managed to combine multiple superhero stories into one and make arguably the greatest superhero movie of the lot. With the likes of Robert Downey Jr, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Mark Ruffalo and Samuel L. Jackson on board it was always clear that the talent was there to make a wonderful film but it was how to utilize the talent on board that was always going to be the hardest part of the production, thankfully Whedon manages to construct a plot that has just the right amount of action, humor, thrills and to make it even better the plot isn't even complicated so there should be no problem in following the story line.
When planet Earth comes under threat from Loki a 'God' from another planet and brother to Thor, Nick Fury assembles the likes of Iron Man, Captain America, The Hulk, Thor, Hawk Eye and Black Widow to try and put a stop to the hell bent Loki. Their efforts prove to be futile however and Loki soon takes control of some of Fury's best agents to scheme against the Avengers and to make a weapon that will allow his army of aliens to come and start a war on planet Earth. When Loki succeeds in opening a portal to allow his Aliens into the world they begin wreaking havoc on New York City and it is up to the Avengers to fight them off in an epic battle.
With stunning action scenes that are heavily influenced by the use of CGI The Avengers is a breathtaking movie that matches up to the success of Christopher Nolan's Batman films, the cast are terrific as they reprise their roles as superheros and the chemistry among the cast is key to the little bits of humor that are involved throughout the film. A genuinely thrilling movie from start to finish that has one of the best battle scenes in history to round off a perfect superhero movie.
