Add five of the best Marvel comic superheroes together and we get The Avengers; a comic book sensation from its well-known comic book writer Stan Lee. The film takes The Avengers to an action packed sci-fi Hollywood adventure through a battle between superheroes and villains.

The Avengers revives a cast of recognizable superheroes from Marvel’s past film productions: The Incredible Hulk, Thor, Iron Man, and Captain America: The First Avenger. Character personalities, scenes, actors and acting styles are retained from their associated hero films. The story is slow, but well developed throughout The Avengers to link intertextual connections to their past superhero films. Tony Stark from Iron Man returns with his enterprise Stark Industries utilizing his advanced futuristic technologies and powers. Thor’s evil step-brother Loki from the magical realm of Asgard returns from Thor as an evil villain to bring tyranny and destruction. Loki has an unimaginable power from his scepter to control and enslave the minds. His power gives him the ability to steal the cube of Tesseract – an ancient Asgardian artifact with unimaginable power from S.H.I.E.L.D to resurrect his army to control Earth. The Tesseract has previously appeared in the previous films Thor, Iron Man and Captain America: The First Avenger. The six superheroes combined create the ultimate superhero team called The Avengers to battle Thor’s evil step-brother Loki for the balance of power and the fight for Tesseract.

The role of each superhero is well defined by their personality and superhero abilities. Each superhero is easily recognizable by their distinct characteristic and personality. The actors project their superhero’s strengths to an astounding ability. The acting is superb and it takes seconds to recognize the superheroes from evil villains. The theatrical acting overwhelms the audience by the roles of each character and their independent importance to The Avengers.

Joss Whedon, the director of The Avengers takes the almost impossible challenge of combining different superhero’s personality to create a well balance film. He provides each superheroes and villain a time to shine and creates ease to the audience for differentiating the character’s roles and personalities throughout the film. Whedon merges character’s personalities with astounding sound and cinematography to heighten the audience’s illusion with realism and fantasy. The cinematography steals the audience’s attention and carries them through journey of entertainment filled with futuristic technological advances, explosive special effects and unstoppable action.

If you read superhero comics or take pleasure and enjoy action packed sci-fi films, The Avengers is the movie to see. It’s the all-time superhero film teamed up with all your best superheroes.
