  Bloody "marvel"ous

| | See all Plaz74's reviews (16)

I can't explain how much I love this film...I just have one doubt about the screenwriter. Was it the same guy who wrote the end to Transformers: Darkside of the Moon - too many similarities to be simply coincidence...hmmm???

But other than that, awesome film - Josh Wheddon, you da man :)

  DISAPPOINTING AND FAR TOO LONG

| | See all HONESTBAZ's reviews (299)

I really wanted to like this one,but found myself getting bored quite early into it.
Here's the story in basic: A villain gets hold of an important item and starts a war then a bunch of superheroes get together to sort him out,but they don't all get on. Sounds great but it just gets bogged down in bland superheroes getting too much screen time. I've enjoyed many a superhero film,but this got me wishing for the end to hurry up. The special effects are spectacular but that's where my praise ends,the story is a bit dull and some of the heroes just didn't do it for me.
CAPTAIN AMERICA looked a bit daft,as did THOR(the 80's rocker with a hammer),the HULK is too much CGI to look realistic and some heroes I didn't even know or care for.
So I tried but just couldn't get into this overlong mega superheroes movie. It's looks great,but I don't see it as anything super.

  Awesome Hulk and the rest!

This is the ultimate marvel comics film. So many super heros and they all have a big part to play in the film. If you like marvel films, this is by far and beyond the best. I only hope there is a sequel or three coming! This has become my all time favorite movie.

  Why introduce Ed Nortons hulk,then change it !?

I was really looking forward to seeing this,but was dissapointed (if you hadn't guessed) with the omission of Ed Norton's Hulk,this,new Hulk was astheticaly dissapointing and a bit too human and vocal,Black Widow was the best character but it didn't ,as a whole float my boat ,I will rent the next film rather than buy it (as I did this one) as I end up spending money on mediocre productions

  A Roaring Success

Years of anticipation and numerous movies all lead to a huge amount of anticipation for the Avengers movie and it doesn't disappoint. There are certainly a few plot holes but thanks to some fantastic action sequences and Josh Whedon's typical humorous dialogue it is difficult to imagine anyone coming away from this movie having not enjoyed what they have seen.

"Who the hell are you?"
"Nick Fury...director of SHIELD, I'm here to talk to you about the Avengers Initiative..."

HOLY S**t!

Way back in 2008 after we all had a good time with Iron Man, Nick Fury shows up and implanted into our heads that the countdown to the coolest damn thing ever just began. It was a countdown to a movie of great expectations, the combination of Iron Man, The Hulk, Thor, Captain America and other side characters all on one screen kicking some bad guy behinds.

After five movies and four years, it arrived in cinemas and we all had a blast! Now we can watch The Avengers on the small screen and it never gets old, it is a great film, a soaring achievement that was so risky and could've ended up as a disastrous mess, but The Avengers has catapulted the peak of geekdom with a fine $1.5billion in the bank and the countless fans now lining up to buy Marvel merch making The Avengers good on both sides of the spectrum.

If you havent seen The Avengers...fix that! It's easily the best piece of superhero sci-fi since...I can't remember when. It's tons of fun, it's got great comedy and it's a fantastic action movie. You've got your favourite heroes battling it out and each get their own fist pumping awesome heroism moments and...I could keep praising this for another twenty paragraphs, but the thing you need to know is, you need to see this and join the Avengers Fanbase! You won't regret it!

  Just brilliant adult humour in a childish adventure!!

We went to watch this film as a 2nd choice when our 1st choice had subtitles....and we were so glad we did!! It has tension, excitement, futuristic themes and fantastic computer graphics towards the end. Just an all round entertaining film for the family - with the right amount of adult humour and thrills for the kids!! Just buy it!! Bev

  Hit? Yes, no doubt about it. However...

I have absolutely no doubt that this movie is great: with this cast, director, etc, it would require epic effort to go totally wrong.

However, it would be easier to review it and gush out my longtime love for Marvel franchise, if I could watch it. The DRM in my DVD -- region 2 DVD, attempted to play with region 2 player -- prevents me from doing so, no matter what I try: DVD player, my desktop, my laptop, my SO's desktop, my SO's laptop -- it gives a disk error, and software analysis specifies fault being in DRM, which artificially introduces errors to disk structure.
