Fast-paced superhero series sequel will be fun for fans.

Joss Whedon empties everything at his reported $225 million disposal to assault the eyes, ears and intelligence with one of the stupidest comic book tales ever put to film.

Whedon must balance the competing storylines and screen time of the actors. He does it nicely, injecting humour and a touch of drama into the action -- and all without so much as a Tesseract to his name. Some assembly required, and delivered.

But one of the most fascinating moments in the picture occurs when Captain America, referring to Thor, notes: "There's only one God, ma'am. And I'm pretty sure he doesn't dress like that." Ah, monotheism versus paganism. Can they exist side by side?

Whedon has delivered that rare action-packed, special-effects spectacle that is relentless in its eagerness to please and successful beyond its goal.

It's Summer's Mightiest Movie. Nuff said.

When all is said and done, Avengers is all sound and Nick Fury, signifying nothing.

Was Marvel's ambitious dream for a shared cinematic universe truly worth it? In my opinion: Most definitely.

The Avengers is one of the best superheroes movies in a long time and is likely to become a classic of the genre. You would need to really hate comic book movies not to get a kick out of this.

The Star Wars of a new generation.

"Marvel's The Avengers" is a visual comic book and it doesn't aspire to be anything more than that. As a film version it succeeds-one is tempted to say-MIGHTILY.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10

It really is quite something that [Whedon] was able to take so many characters and put them into a movie where nobody gets left behind.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4

It really is an astounding achievement - a film that juggles an unenviable number of elements; combining what we've seen before, slotting them together and then adding enough depth, action and humour to make this a remarkable standalone film.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

Marvel's "The Avengers" is the super-hero movie to end all super-hero movies. Why? Joss Whedon.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10

Without Robert Downey Jr. delivering his witty quips in patented rat-a-tat-tat fashion, The Avengers would largely be a soulless shell of a movie that could be mistaken for a Michael Bay production.
Full Review | Original Score: B+

After years of buildup and prequels, "The Avengers" is merely average.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10

The first great superhero team movie, and a film that captures the essence of what makes the Marvel Universe great.
Full Review | Original Score: 9.5/10

The filmmakers play a conservative game, not setting out to make a great movie but simply making sure not to screw it up an entire franchise.

Feels like actual Marvel Comics are being injected directly into your bloodstream. It's simply jaw-dropping.
