I have one word for Marvel Comic’s new movie “The Avengers”, A W E S O M E ! Besides Avatar this is the first movie that has lived up to the hype and as a matter of fact it was a much better movie. This is how a superhero movie is done, thank you Joss Whedon!
Brief over view. Loki hooks up with some alien baddies, comes to Earth to steal some powerful cube. I don’t know how to pronounce the name or spell it so go see the movie. He picks a fight with S.H.E.I.L.D. right off the bat and sets out to pit one hero against another so they will fight amongst themselves while he hatches his evil plan. However, Loki does not know how deep the heroes resolve goes and they come together to take him on and the alien invasion, in a monumental, epic superhero battle to save the Earth.
I can not say enough of how well this movie was made. Where do I begin? It tied in the stories of the heroes seamlessly from their individual movies. Joss Whedon did a fantastic job of spreading the script around where all the heroes and villains shined with equal screen time. The movie’s pace was outstanding, It actually takes you on the journey. It was not rushed and actually told a story you wanted to be a part of with just the right amount of humor mixed in. I even cheered out loud in a few of the scenes, I felt like a kid again! That’s how powerful and believable the script and actors were. The special effects, fa ghett about it! Are you kidding me? The Hulk was freakin awesome as well as the rest. It was some of the best special effects to date of any movie (well Avatar still holds that title). But to see your childhood heroes come to life in the way that Whedon directed this was fantastic!
The acting in this movie by everyone was superb, I mean it. They take on these roles and brought their characters to life, exceeding expectations. Hats off to Tom Hiddleston in his portrayal of Loki, an Oscar worthy performance. Speaking of Oscars, realistically I know this will not be nominated for any except special effects and technical categories. However, I think it is high time that SciFi and Action movies get their due. It takes more acting, writing, costumes, make up, special effects and effort to make a great movie like this than say, “The Artist” (boring waste of film). Plus millions of people can’t be wrong. Take notice Movie Academy, The Avengers should be nominated for best picture, acting nominations, screen play and director. That is how good this movie is! Maybe I am a little biased, but go, go now and see this movie. Bring the kids (7 and up). I guarantee you will not be disappointed! Oh stick around after the credits roll for a segue into the next movie! Yes!
I give this movie 5 Beers!
