261st Movie Review: The Avengers

Go see it…nuff said

(Note: Little or no spoilers involved)

The Avengers is the best superhero movie I’ve ever seen!

After all the hype, it’s only fair to doubt whether or not the film can actually live up to its expectations. But I’m telling you right now that you don’t have to worry. Just go to the theater and enjoy watching indestructible superheroes in action for 2 hours and 22 minutes!

I think the best reason why I enjoyed this film a lot was the fact that there was something interesting going on in each and every scene. Everyone knows that the avengers will eventually assemble, but what made it intriguing was finding out how they’ll end up teaming together. And this is what sets it apart from other films like Transformers or G.I. Joe. It never forgot about the story even if the action scenes were already enough to blow us away. And with this movie, you’ll never get tired. Be ready for lots of comic (no pun intended) relief along the way!

From left to right: Agent Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders), Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Captain America (Chris Evans), The Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Iron Man (Robert Downey, Jr.), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Agent Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg)

The whole cast was amazing! Robert Downey Jr, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner and Cobie Smulders were my favorites, but the rest were just as good. And what surprised me was that everyone had an equal role and nobody was left out or had less screen time. Even the narcissistic Iron Man had to make room for his pals. Kudos to Director Joss Whedon (aka the coolest director ever) too for patching things up nicely. You could really feel that this whole project was a team effort.

I’ll be honest, it wouldn’t be as fun if Captain America, Iron Man, and Thor weren’t introduced to us before. And the film would’ve been a lot longer since it’ll have to show us a little bit of each character’s back stories. Though I don’t think that it’s necessary to catch all the prequels before seeing this one because along the way you’ll be subtly fed with information about the superheroes’ past lives.

The Avengers is the epitome of movies that make everyone – the producers and consumers – happy. It’s quite a rare feat nowadays and I hope more of these are made in the future. This really set the bar high for this year’s summer movies. So don’t wait for the others to come out, because I promise you when you leave the theater you’ll be telling your friends to go see it as well!


(for the record, the last time I gave an “A” was when I watched “The Social Network” over a year ago. Yeah, it was THAT good)
