Six mission... WIN A LOT FOF MONEY AND BE... - 11/4/2013 10:18:24 PM

This film was expected since 2008 with the movie Hulk (movie more or less), since Marvel has promised the film "THE AVENGERS", the famous group of super heroes (basically, the Justice League Marvel). Then came the movies Iron Man (2008-Great), Iron Man 2 (2009-Good) Thor (2010-Good) Captain America (2011-Very Good), and finally in 2012 came the expected and exceeded all expectations!
A film that brought together four powerful super heroes (and 2 that appeared in the movie Iron Man 2 and Thor), with all the elements of a superhero film. And who directs it all? Joss Weedon, nerd-director, best direction for a superhero film there it's not (except for Nolan, "THE DARK KNIGHT"). He took the heroes and their BDs, took Manhattan (the stage of all superhero movies), and with a little touch of realism and pum ... "THE AVENGERS" born.
Managed to put together a fantastic action, die laughing humor, and even a bit of emotion, and the most impressive are the heroes. All were perfect in their roles, and each had their moment in the film, it didn't had a main character, all leading heroes in the film are- For example, when Iron Man appears it is all about him, when Hulk appears everything it is about him, and that's with all the characters.
But to understand the story better, it's kind of mandatory watch the other films that I mentioned earlier. But you can see the same movie and love it completely.
After THE DARK KNIGHT trilogy, THE AVENGERS is the best superhero film ever made.

I have no idea what else this film could've done to get that last star. I guess films that do well around these times call for a certain "darkness" to them (e.g The Dark Knight trilogy), but a film lacking this is a welcome break, and with such a setup, this technique probably wouldn't have worked as well anyway. For a director to succeed so brilliantly with a film as hard to make as this is a great achievement, and one that deserves FIVE stars.

Strong 4 stars probably more appropriate than 5, like m... - 11/8/2013 5:03:57 PM

A strong 4 is where this movie should stand. Not compelling film making by any stretch, but extremely entertaining entertainment. If all superhero movies gave their lives for another one of these, that would just fine with me. Sucks about the awkward "Avengers Assemble" oceanic title...

This is an action fantasy film with everything - top cast, great acting & chemistry, clever & witty dialogue, some great nods to the comic, outstanding action scenes and all managed quite superbly by Joss Whedon. Every major character has their moments on-screen (with Thor being my personal favourite) - you really couldn't ask for much more in the areas of fun and entertainment. To compare it to the ludicrous DKR is a joke (coming from someone who counts Dark Knight and Batman Begins among his top, top movies) - Avengers will certainly be in my Top 5 for the 301 vote.

I have one word to describe this film- well, actually it's an abbreviation: Be-awesome (beyond awesome- courtesy of Rhino from Bolt)! It's amazing in every way. From the sets to the costumes to the acting to the gags...everything's perfect! Really wonderful and I look forward to future Marvel films.

If you like superhero films, you’re going to be overcome by this one. Captain America, Iron Man, Black Widow, Hulk, Thor and Hawkeye all come together to form the ultimate union to do battle with an alien race which lays waste to poor old New York. Aside from following the usual trajectory for this kind of movie, the main thing here that Whedon really emphasises is that this is all done in good fun. So, in amongst the breakneck pace, the all-out action scenes and the bumper to bumper special effects, there are some great one-liners peppered about and a show-stopping turn for the Hulk, here being way more awesome than he managed in his two previous solo-starring movies.
