scifi's Review of Marvel's The Avengers
Marvel's The Avengers(2012)
I had to watch this movie twice to actually write a decent review. The first viewing i didnt feel the movie was that great but on second viewing i realize what joss was trying to do and pulled it off quite well.
The protagonist is the team and not the individual characters and how they come together even though they dont particularly like each other.
The one thing marvel did quite well was to build up the stories of the other avengers for this movie. The movie suffered in character development but thats understandable since some of the other movies are in production like thor and im3 so Wheedon had to be careful and keep all the characters in status quo. The action sequences were done quite well and all the actors got enough screen time. Mark Ruffalo was my favoirte in this movie and i dont even like the HULK character.
The script was simple but effective. I felt the movie was a little too slow. I kind of think of this movie as what transformers could of been if they had a competent director.
Overall worth viewing
