Awesome & Hilarious

This movie was terrific! I thought it was going to be more of an action focused movie but I got a surprise, the comedy in The Avengers had me and my husband rolling through the whole movie. The plot and characters are perfect.

My husband, my brother and I are going to watch it tonight too!

I agree with wonshin187 review.

Fantastically perfect!

NO SPOILERS: Ok, this is a movie that has been being set up since 2008 with the first Iron Man movie, and lady’s and gentleman, it DID NOT disappoint!! Let me break it down. From simply an action movie stand point, this movie nailed it. From the character introductions, and their entrances into the movie, to the interweaving of those character into each other with well written dialog and subtle to heavy conflicts between the characters. The story is so well driven by those characters alone, and the action between them that ensues, that that alone makes this a great movie. Not to mention, that this movie is fleshed out with eight main characters: 4 super hero’s, 3 shield agents, and 1 super villain… with an assortment of supporting characters…. One might think “how can all that fit into one movie?” I don’t know, but it was. And it was done well. The action sequences were fantastic, it was literally put together with the shots and cinematography that can only be explained as a pane by pane, epic super move after super move comic book like story boarding… and it was so good.

As far as a comic book movie/super hero movie goes, and its expectation to live up to the beautifully done “prequels” if you will (Iron Man 1&2, The incredible Hulk, Thor, and Captain America) This, incredibly so, blew ALL of my expectations out of the water. In my mind there was simply no way that they could take the same four main characters, all from their own independent feature movies, and jam them all into one movie, and be able to give everyone enough screen time for it to not seem like a sequel to any of the other movies with just a bunch of extras with super powers. Well, I was so, so wrong. There is no “star” in this movie. There is no one character that this movie focuses on and everyone else seems to be left out. This movie is cohesive, cinematic, story telling brilliance. Period. It is quite frankly the greatest super hero film of all time. Every character gets there time, dialog, and action packed moments, beautifully spread out across and ever increasingly awesome story arc, culminating in one of, if not, THE greatest film finales of all time. I have seen it twice so far, and I plan on seeing it quite a few more times. Coming from me, someone that will rarely see a movie opening weekend, let alone in the theater at all. That is huge.

Side Not: I have been following and loving every film in preparation for this one, and this one was so good, there was a sequence in it that prior to it I had already been put into a child like state of euphoria, that once this scene began, I broke. And I literally had to cover my mouth and fight back the giddy screams of a child at Christmas getting the gift he has always wanted. While tears, yes tears crept down my face. This movie is unbelievable!! And I’m only -kind of- a nerd/comic book fan.

GO SEE IT!
Also: Like the rest of them, stay to the end of the credits ;)
