In a spectacular feat, "The Avengers" pulls its iconic franchises together for one of the most grounded, funnest, and all-around best superhero films ever made.

For bringing in such big name characters from other movies and putting them together, it was pretty well done. There were some odd lines of humour that fell flat. Not crazy about the recasting of Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner/Hulk, but a great cast otherwise. Pretty cool actions scenes especially at the climax of the film.

Best movie I have ever seen.

This is an amazing film with a future that will strive and never get old, plus its incredible cast makes this movie 5 stars!

Every MCU film raises the bar, both in terms of action and special effects, and in terms of the probing of what it means to be a human hero.

I like that my grandsons enjoy this, especially because it gives us shared entertainment and occasionally shared topics about what a "hero" is.

This is how you make a successful movie franchise, an all star cast of Marvel characters hit the screen in the Avengers and pulls it off brilliantly, this film offers an action packed yet light on its feet, engaging plot, with lots of laughs, and a great ending. Avengers is one of the best of the Marvel movies and shows how to do superhero actions films the right way.

There was an idea to bring together a group of remarkable people to see if they could become something more...

The Avengers takes an ambitious concept that beautifully pays off, bringing together some of Marvel's most iconic heroes. Incredible fun and humor throughout. In my opinion, the greatest comic book movie to date.

The 2012 Avengers is probably the best superhero movie ever, with the possible exception of the Dark Knight - really depends on what you want from your superhero movies. A concept like this shouldn't work, but it does, and is so satisfying. The interplay between these characters coming together for the first time starts out with them grating against each other, but eventually coming together to work well. I don't think you could have gotten a better director to pull this behemoth off than Joss Whedon, who is very accustomed to large ensemble casts of very disparate characters. This was a love letter to the fans, a self-congratulating showcase of an experiment that shouldn't have worked, but worked so well that every other studio is trying to find their own franchise universe, and a flag planted that nerd culture is on top and is planning to stay there for the forseeable future.

Loki's plan was terrible. The movie was hella fun to watch though. Marvel has this thing with faceless/robot armies... be more creative please.

As an adult I can't say this was very enjoyable, but if you're a parent this might be a great one for the kids. There does seem to be a bit of violence though that may not be suitable, depending on strict your guidelines are.

Couldn't take this film seriously with grown men flying around in capes and costumes, and it seems a bit much for a kids film, so I have to give this a low rating.

a very entertaining popcorn flick for everyone to enjoy! Funny, exciting and plenty of action to keep people coming back for more.

This is the movie that proved that the MCU worked. From beginning to end a magnificent thrill ride that proved the worth of the superhero genre.

I like this movie just fine, but I LOVE the second half of it with a passion. After the first hour of pretty interesting set-up, this movie takes off and never lets up for a minute, making it incredibly entertaining

After five stand-alone movies, the Marvel Cinematic Universe finally adjoins to have six World War II, Norse mythology, and modern-era superheroes band together to fight alien-looking monsters with an iconic score blaring in the background. In other words, the first superhero crossover movie is finally here. After many movies behind its back, this movie is set to make five times the money. For too many years now, the concept of them banding together was nonexistent. There is no question why that scene of them standing in a circle, loaded up in the heart of New York, ready to fight for humanity was ever so important. If you are not sure why that is so meaningful to the audience of the movie, you may have not seen the post-credit scenes to every film beforehand (particularly Iron Man and Thor) as Samuel L. Jackson recruits members to his team.

Beforehand, it would have been clear not to anticipate the film. But now we can only thank director Joss Whedon for creating such a fun-filled thriller of a summer blockbuster. Whedon had previously been known for creating TV's Buffy the Vampire Slayer and can now claim his right to balance large-scale projects as a coherent piece. Having been trusted by such a project though, he seems to have forgotten the millions of Joker fans counting on him to make this entire film work together and instead saves space for Wizard of Oz, playing cards, and Asgardian family jokes. But the fact this still works makes you only love the film even more.

The amount of millions Hollywood has spent reintroducing these characters in movies may seem unnecessary. It is. Robert Downey Jr.'s character, Iron Man, is basically a billionaire tech-geek who owns an iron suit. Chris Hemsworth's Thor and Chris Evans's Captain America are both super-soldiers from non-modern times who have received the spotlight recently so they don't need stand-alone movies. In fact, the central Avenger who steals the show in this film has actually not been introduced before, at least not with this actor, is Bruce Banner, who has rage issues and turns into a green monster known as the Hulk.

These team members assemble with Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow, an agent for Nick Fury, and Hawkeye, an archer for SHIELD portrayed by Jeremy Renner, who just came off of the smashing success of The Hurt Locker, in order to defeat an Asgardian known as Loki, who has come down to invade Earth. Loki is played by Tom Hiddleston and spends much of the movie demanding humans kneel before him without very dark intentions. It is almost a shame that this is the threat the Avengers are facing against.

As this cast and crew are set into action against this script and threat, a MacGuffin-type power cube which tends to always show up in any sci-fi action movie, The Avengers begins to follow its earlier themes and genres: a buddy-cop comedy. The fighting amongst the members of the Avengers in this film actually turns out to be rather refreshing, turning two-dimensional comic book characters into three-dimensional big-screen superheroes. While the script seems to be weak at times, it wins itself back through these conversational exchanges.

It is the action sequences that truly make this film what it was meant to be, while being easy to follow in the process. In a beautiful scene, SHIELD's helicarrier takes off into the air and in a similarly breathtaking action sequence, it gets destroyed by Loki's forces. They then return in the third act as Manhattan gets wrecked to pieces in an effort for the world to be saved.

The battles won seem reminiscent to our fantasies of superheroes saving us from external threats and avenging our world in outstanding action scenes. The film's title certainly displays avenging. While this is probably not the case, the film gives us a breath of fresh air by choosing to go the old-school light way. The nostalgic route the film chooses gives more heart rather than fear and plays well just at that, granting comic book fans their dreams. Even Hulk is granted heart as well as anger. The audience will feel the same way.

Marvel Studios has managed to do the unthinkable and delivered a kick-ass movie experience. This movie is definitely one of the best works done by Marvel. Full of extraordinary action, well-timed humor, fleshed out characters with differing ideologies, and an actually compelling villain. Mark Ruffalo is fantastic as Bruce Banner and does a better job of bringing the character to life compared to Edward Norton's portrayal. This is how you do a team-up superhero film!

The strength of all these superheroes are much more powerful than the hype suggests!

The Avengers is the culmination of all the past efforts of the MCU, and it pays off. Each actor captivates their character perfectly and have brilliant chemistry with one another. The movie also features the triumphant return of the franchises greatest villain, which then leads to nearly an entire third act of action, special effects, and witty humor. The Avengers is by far the start of an ever growing world that shows no sign of stopping.
