  Why the Assemble????

| | See all Strangerer's reviews (3)

I would like it if Play could get hold of copies and covers that don't include the word Assemble . Those that come here looking for Avengers aren't looking for John Steed and Emma Peel. Give us the movie as it should be known.

  Awesome Film

What a great film this is!
As a kid in the 1970s me and a few friends were Marvel mad...couldn't get enough of the comics and constantly making homemade shields, webslingers, billy clubs etc etc to play as our favorite heroes.
So, through the years, I've watched and bought all the Marvel films that have been released and followed all the hints and scenes in the films that have brought us to the Avengers Assemble. With this film effectively being 7 years in the making and all the hype, I went along to watch it with a feeling that it was probably going to be a huge disappointment.
It certainly wasn't.
I'm not sure I can write in review here anything that hasn't already been said a dozen times - but what I can say is that if you are a Marvel fan (to any extent) you will LOVE this film.
Great action, superb special effects, great acting/casting (they are all on top form), very funny scenes and some great emotional scenes too...it has it all.
Obviously the Blu-ray isn't available yet - but I'll be ordering it as soon as it is.
Great great film that is fantastic by today's standards...but also brings back many happy memories of happy childhood days.
Buy it, watch it, enjoy it.
'nuff said.

with two iron man , Captain America , Thor and a hulk movie all giving snippets of a avengers movie and finally its here . A few give off Edward Norton not playing the hulk as much as i think he is amazing actor mark Ruffalo pulls of a better job as Banner and the first actor to play hulk and they manage to make hulk look like Banner also perhaps the best hulk i have seen so far . Joss Wheadon done an amazing job to gel the team together he has done x-men comics so i was gald he took the job on this. he managed to give each hero moments in the movie so who ever favourite hero is you will not be disappointed . Joss manages to keep each hero true to the other movies ie iron man with jokes , Captain America with his Loyalty to america. Even the lesser heroes like Fury , Hawkeye and Black Widow all get enough screen to keep fans of those entertained . heroes Clash in this movie and we some fights between these which are great and funny at times. near the end Captain America gets show us his leadership which he pulls of well and shows the team acting like team rather than them wanting to work on their own. The humour is tongue in cheek which the lines are given to Iron man mostly and it works well and hulk has a few laugh out loud moments. This movie has it all action , comedy , great effects and most of all the bringing together of the heroes works amazing . Joss weadon did an outstanding job and watch end credits as it will keep fans excited for maybe a sequel , with iron man 3 , Captain America 2 and thor 2, and spider man on the way and hopefully a Hulk done like he is in this movie this will keep marvel fans happy and those that just love the movies entertained for a few years to come . marvel has finally made a movie that is the best to date and there has been many marvel movies and this tops them all , they should have Joss weadon direct them all , but as they say we cant win them all. Best comic movie to date just beats Dark Knight and thats saying something.

  Believe the hype!!

Saw this at the cinema and it was awesome. Everything I hoped for from this movie and then some. Director Joss Whedon has done a fantastic job getting a story together which delivers equally for each of its heroes. The blu-ray release can not come soon enough but if you can see it in the cinema on the big screen......this movie was made to be enjoyed on a BIG screen.

This has to be Marvels best movie to date, awesome action from start to finish, great effects, great cast, all the stars did their bit, Iron-man and the Hulk steal the show especially the hulk with his mighty smashing screen presence!! There is plenty of great humour too, all the characters have great shared screen time and the pacing of the film is great even though its on for so long, this is truly an epic comic book movie and a must see for any fan.

With great power comes great banter in writer director Joss Whedon's blockbuster multiplier, which if not the best superhero movie ever, it might well be the funniest. Avengers Assemble is a power play that's unprecedented in Hollywood history, launching three different 100 million dollar franchises to construct one super mega franchise. And it has to be said, handing it to a fanboy whose single previous feature film (Serenity) couldn't even scrape back its budget at the worldwide box office was a massive dice roll.
Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Captain America (Chris Evans) on the big screen together was always going to be a massive kick. But could any screen be big enough for all them? Would Avengers Assemble look like four bodybuilders in an elevator? The suit, the smash, the hammer, the shield, the hype! Like X Men The Last Stand, Spiderman 3 and Iron Man 2 there was a real danger of hero verload. Sure enough, it takes Whedon a while to assemble his Avengers, as S.H.I.E.L.D. agents Nick Fury (Samuel L.Jackson), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Phil Coulson (Gregg Clark) recruit the superheroes to save Earth after Loki (Tom Hiddleston), Thor's power mad brother, returns to enslave mankind with an all powerful cosmic cub, "What does he want me to do, swallow it?" asks Ruffalo's Dr. Bruce Banner. And from there, the outstanding one liners keep coming, With X Men and X2, Bryan Singer showed how you could disguise a compelling ensemble drama as a superhero actioner. This is exactly Whedon's speciality as well as creating cult TV phenomenon Buffy, he worked on the scripts for X Men and Toy Story and his screenplay drags together a group of characters with pretty much zero interest in each other. How? By locking big egos in small rooms and letting the funnies fly. Lifting the movie's pace every time he steps on screen in the first half, RDJ's Tony Stark catalyses the Avengers with machine gun wit. He gives both barrels to Thor. The one liners are priceless and really drag the viewer into the fun of it all. Arguably the least interesting and most poorly dressed of the Avengers, Cap duly suffers in his first brawl with Loki and finds his 1940's brain drubbed like a punch bag by the sarcastic Stark. But affectionately, Whedon plays to his characters weaknesses as well as their strengths as his comic book heroes bounce off each other. And I do mean that literally. Despite being mere mortals, Jeremy Renner's laser sighted archer Hawkeye and Scarlett Johansson's gymnastic spy Black Widow find key roles in the story. There's no sex factor in this superhero smack down. Instead, maybe the most interesting frisson sparks between fellow brainiacs Tony Stark and Dr. Banner. Once the green giant bursts free, he grabs hold of the movie and yanks it out of Downey Jr.'s hands. The best moments and the biggest laughs belong to Hulk's smash happy personality and only one of them is blown by the trailer. Behind the camera, Whedon managers put his money (more than 200million Dollars of it) where his mouth is, after an airship siege high in the clouds, the movie surges towards an exciting, epic extended finale of city smashing carnage that stretches for a Transformers level of mass destruction. As Loki's army pours in from another dimension, one showboating unbroken action shot swoops through the battle to track each Avenger fighting against gigantic flying robo fish and alien warriors riding space chariots. This 142 minute romp between gods, monsters, men and supermen packs so much crowd pleasing colour and humour that it's impossible not to walk out grinning. It's excellent and for once lives up to the Hype!
