When an extraterrestrial invasion threatens all of mankind, the S.H.I.E.L.D. agency must bring together the world's greatest heroes in order to stop the threat. But before they can save Earth, they will have to learn to work together as a team. It's great that they are all avenging something. The Avengers. this movie is a good movie. good visual effect's and I just love to see all of the marvel superhero on the big seen and maybe they can do this again but this time with the DC comics. but the film slowed down a little bit but I still enjoyed myself.

Well, I can see how this became the highest grossing film of the year, and one of the highest grossing ever, it's just fun. The Dark Knight Rises tried to hard and had that horrible ending, The Avengers never takes itself too seriously. If you read most of my reviews, I don't like popcorn flicks a whole lot. I tend to gravitate towards more serious fare, but this was what every summer blockbuster should aspire to. I've never been a huge fan of The Hulk, but Mark Ruffalo made me fan, at least of his portrayal and of course Robert Downey, Jr. is amazing. A smart, well-made, and fun superhero movie.

Avengers Assemble!

The Avengers has it all. And then some. Six superheroes for the price of one ticket: Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, Hawkeye, Black Widow and the Hulk. It's also the blockbuster I saw in my head when I imagined a movie that brought together the idols of the Marvel world in one shiny, stupendously exciting package. Joss Whedon, in his second film that he's directed, stages the most exultantly good-humored, head-on, rousing series, as well as some interesting character interactions and development between our heroes.

The plot works in a simple way. The world will end if Loki (Tom Hiddleston), the banished demigod, has his way. Loki hates his brother Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and lusts to destroy Earth with help from an alien army. As head of S.H.I.E.L.D. (Strategic Hazard Intervention Espi...

Les Invincibles

Remind me. Why does everyone love the Avengers?

When it was released I was pleasantly surprised by this movie. It had fun characters and acting, especially by Robert Downey Jr.
But I never thought it would be at this level of praise and admiration. It even holds the overall 47 rating on FilmCrave. Why?

I still stand by my original opinions of what worked in the film. The acting was phenomenal and the amount of story was just right. I especially liked the conversations between the titular heroes.
Actually, what I don't like is exactly what everyone likes.

The action is as overly stuffed and bloated as it can get. I felt like I didn't have time to breathe while everyone of these invincibles caused mayhem. Because that's what they are. Invincible.
At no point in the bombarding sc...

"Avengers Assemble" by Yojimbo

Nick Fury gathers Earth's mightiest heroes to form a response team when Asgardian demi-god Loki returns to spearhead an alien invasion. Joss Whedon is finally given a chance to prove what he can do with the appropriate resources to hand and in Avengers Assemble has created a rip-roaring rollercoaster of escapist entertainment that has all the ingredients of a first class summer blockbuster. Dispensing with his usual formula of wise cracks and pop culture references it begins as a fairly generic action fantasy, but as the heroes are introduced his skill for creating likeable characters and entertaining comic dialogue is framed within a plot which won't win any awards for originality but contains just the right balance of characterisation, comedy and eye boggling set pieces. Once again it i...

The avengers is a wholesome gift for summer movie goers. There are lot of action set pieces, some hard hitting dialogs and great super hero the HULK in it, We get the best HULK smash in the film. Iron man is another cool character performed by Downey Jr. He and Ruffalo share excellent screen space understanding each other and arguing at times.

Great news, Joss Whedon is coming back to write and direct The Avengers 2 (plus a TV series?!)


http://www.thewrap.com/mo vies/column-post/joss-whe don-signed-direct-write-a vengers-2-51101


Color me happy - I thought the dialogue and interaction between characters was one of the best thing about The Avengers, and Whedon is great at that kind of thing. The series is in good hands, and though it's still quite a ways away, I'm already anticipating the results (don't know about this TV series yet).

Now if they can only get The Dark Tower back up and running... but that's another topic.
