Audience Reviews for Marvel's The Avengers

  • Apr 28, 2016
    The Avengers was so much fun and Marvel absolutely nailed it! Let me explain what I loved! Positives: 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! Overall: 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.

    This is without a doubt the most well-made movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe so far. With the great visionary known as Joss Whedon at the helm and with a lot of rich characters already set up previously in their own solo films (with the exception of Black Widow and Hawkeye, who appeared as secondary characters or cameos in the previous films). It is one of those movies that is always worth watching again and it's definitely deserves the title of one of the highest-grossing films of all time.

    Thank's to Joss Whedon's brilliant scripting and directing, The Avengers succeeds as both a stand alone picture and a great ensemble crossover for the fans. The action is non-stop, yes, but after 5 movies of build up I think it's warranted and accepted.

    By far the best MCU film and one of the best superhero films of all time. The Avengers is action packed, smart, funny and filled with delicious popcorn fun!
