After years of setup in the form of individual hero-centric films, The Avengers had a hell of a lot to live up to. Not because the films that precede it are all awesome (they’re a mix of the good, the bad and the okay), but because this ambitious effort needed to transcend what preceded it and move beyond origin stories to immerse the audience completely in the Marvel Universe. Whilst visual flair may not be Joss Whedon’s strongest suit, the decision to offer him the director’s chair proves inspired as he goes about demonstrating the innate understanding of how to make an ensemble tick that we’ve seen in his TV work (Buffy, Firefly, Dollhouse), depicting a believable world populated by larger-than-life superheroes and striking a balance in the screen time they’re given that doesn’t diminish their individual stature....

The Avengers suffers from some of the plausibility problems that plague the genre, but when it’s doing either of the two things it does best (making its farfetched characters as believable as you can without going down the gritty Dark Knight route, and breaking into some great action sequences), it lives up to its immense potential. It’s also the first Marvel film to capture the epic scale, excitement and humour of its source material, best captured in the Rampage-style carnage of the film’s huge final conflagration in which the audience is dazzled rather than bewildered by the way Whedon stages his action and uses CGI and alternately teased into bouts of laughter and applause. Superhero fan or not, The Avengers dares you to not leave delighted.Hide

The Avengers 3D
BY Roo grader
An awesome movie, loving the fact that the have combined all the characters. Not so sure about Jeremy Renner, as some one who hasn't seen a lot of the marvel movies I was a little confused on exactly who Samuel Jacksons character Nick Frost was. I did find myself feeling like I was watching a transformers movie during the war scenes. Great action movie and can't wait to see it again!

My favourite part of the film was the character dynamics. We are already somewhat accquainted with these characters, but when you throw them altogether, we get something else entirely, and the film really plays on that. I mean, the interactions between them all - hilarious, adorable, frightening, BRILLIANT. Love it! The characters really drive... More the plot, which works really well. In particular I'd like to mention how great Mark Ruffalo is as the Hulk - seeing as the Hulk's been played by a couple of different actors before, it can't have been easy for him to find his own interpretation. But he gets the balance between the nerdy science genius and the rage-filled monster just perfect! :D
The special effects and the 3D side of things are amazingly done too - I'm not usually sold on 3D, but it's completely worth it here! :)
Errr, so yeah - JUST SEE IT ALREADY hahaaa. You can't miss it!Hide

It is about comic book heros saving the world.There were a huge amount of special effects which were impressive.
It lacked grip in the story and in the way it was put together.Some of the actors sounded like they were reading the script.Maybe it was because of the way it was written.
I did find it a little boring.
