Marvel's The Avengers - (2012)


Nick Fury of S.H.I.E.L.D. brings together a team of super humans to form The Avengers to help save the Earth from Loki and his army.

Our Review:

I've gotta say I was actually pretty hyped and excited to see this movie. Funny part was my wife had to remind me to go see it the day it came out. Anyway on to the review.

The work put into this movie was just amazing, it was all I hoped for and a little more. It had just the right amount of everything I wanted to see in there. My favorites had to be all the one-liners and conflicts between the team members. It's not your typical "ZOMG team superduper that bands together to fight evil"

In the beginning most of them didn't even like each other. That I find great because so many of these characters are larger than life. They have egos and the big guns aren't used to working with other people or even playing by the rules. Tony, Thor and Banner all work "the other side of the fence" so to speak. Then there's the Widow, Hawkeye and Captain America who are used to following orders and playing within a command structure. They are all thrown together in a wonderful and, best of all, believable fashion. 

The entire cast really delivered. You needed more than just action actors or stunt doubles to play all these parts. The pathos is there but so are the timing and true deep performances. Three was the lucky number for movie Banners. Every other actor in Avengers that we've seen before is BETTER than their previous incarnation (EVERY single one) with the possible exception of RDJ as Stark. He's great but it's hard to top his take on the character from the original Iron Man in an ensemble movie. I think now is a good time to say that I'm insanely attracted to Scarlett Johansson. The character arcs that run there course during this film will surprise a lot of general audiences expecting nothing more than a Transformers type popcorn scarfdown.

Experience the awesomeness for yourself and get the DVD, Blu-ray or digital copy or all three! Avengers as a movie and as a team on screen is an unstoppable force. All I can say is Iron Man, The Hulk, Hawk Eye, Thor, Black Widow, Captain America  and Nick Fury all on one screen??!?!?!? This movie defines MUST SEE!!
