By crafting a winning combination of wonderful characters, brilliant comedy, and spectacular set pieces, Whedon hasn't simply created the biggest superhero movie; he's created one of the best.

What Whedon and Marvel have created here is not just extraordinary, but one of the most entertaining and satisfying comic book movies yet.

Robert Downey Jr's billionaire playboy inventor Tony Stark, aka Iron Man, gets the film's self-aware, tongue-in-cheek tone spot on, delivering Whedon's wisecracks with sardonic charm.

Downey's Stark/Iron Man steals the show because the actor is capable of making the tritest dialogue sound wonderfully witty, but the CGI effects are amazing and, despite its length, the film is very enjoyable.

Infusing plenty of laconic wit into his role, Robert Downey Jr is impressive as ever.

A big, splashy movie in which stuff blows up a lot, yet you go home talking about the actors.

Shrug however you might at a story that has to pack so many characters and tangents into 140 minutes; it will still be difficult for me to see beyond the joyous awesomeness.

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.
