Like a superior, state-of-the-art model built from reconstituted parts, Joss Whedon's buoyant, witty and robustly entertaining superhero smash-up is escapism of a sophisticated order.

Big, brash and very funny, Joss Whedon’s Avengers Assemble is equal to the sum of its parts – and for once, that’s no faint praise. Suit up.

It's fun to watch Whedon pitch his heroes against each other. Child's play, maybe, but entertaining all the same.

Whedon and his cohorts have managed to stir all the personalities and ingredients together so that the resulting dish, however familiar, is irresistibly tasty again.

A joyous blend of heroism and humour that raises the stakes even as it maintains a firm grip on what makes the individual heroes tick.

Finally seeing the damned thing is a bit like standing around a cuckoo clock waiting for noon: you know what to expect, yet you're thrilled into smiling.

It's great to see earth's super heroes saving the world. It's very entertaining and helps you forget the mundane. Can't wait for the next AVENGERS movie (will there be one?). I've also been a long-time Joss Whedon fan - the AVENGERS is another reason why.

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...

I feel like it's completely impossible to write a review about 'The Avengers', simply because it's just TOO AMAZING FOR WORDS. But I'll try my best ;) 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...

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.

Loved the action, the 3D, the effects, the heros, the one-liners - the lot! It was pure non-stop entertainment which required no thought whatsoever, just an open mind senses. You've just got to go!

In 2008, Marvel began their journey to creating a film universe where the stories we have been watching were taking place in one continuity. They began that year with the films "Iron Man" and "The Incredible Hulk", each providing a minute amount of detail and background to something called "The Avengers Initiative". These little easter egg's carried on...

We knew he could. We hoped he would. And Joss Whedon did - he delivered a fun, action-packed popcorn-fest with a heart. A script full of zingers, well-thought out action that enables each character a wee bit of development whilst retaining continuity with their individual Marvel movie franchises. Building on 'Captain America', 'Thor,' 'Iron Man,' and 'The...
