  Better than I thought

| | See all themarkyofbath's reviews (57)

I do like the Thor character and when the film came out I felt it was okay, but Loki was a bit rubbish. So knowing he was the bad guy in this I was a bit apprehensive. However, I thoroughly enjoyed it, there are good bits all the way through it with all characters proving to be entertaining. There are little slow moments, but while the individuals films have good bits in them none have as good a battle scene as the Avengers Assemble, just how can you stop a Demi-God with an army...?? Good 4 star film extra point for one for the Hulk.

  GOOD ENOUGH TIME-KILLER

| | See all SandoEntertainingU's reviews (247)

Right, I know this film was a hit, but after viewing it for myself. I thought, what's so special about it, the main enemy is Thor's brother. The build up to the fight scene near the end took up near enough the entire film, the fight was only around 15 minutes long, of a whole 2 Hours 17 minutes. I have seen some of the individual super hero films, I have seen Iron Man and Thor, I enjoyed Thor, Iron Man not so much, but this was fairly average, some may agree, some won't. The acting was at a good standard and so were the special effects. But the film its self didn't hit the mark for me, I'm not really a fan of superheroes, I wasn't really sure what to expect before I viewed this, but the outcome was it was very average and didn't exceed my expectations. Watch when your looking for something decent to kill 2 hours

  Lived up to expectation

Being a superhero fan, and having watched all the superhero movies, I was hoping for a great movie. Didn't disappoint, good storyline and all the characters work well, a lot of comedy too. Very, very good film.

  SUPERHERO HEAVEN!!!!!

After something like 400 superhero movies- Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, etc- the whole gang finally comes together to blow things up on an even grander scale. When naughty god Loki pinches a powerful artefact, gruff agent Nick Fury (Samuel L Jackson) assembles his crack team, including Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and the incredible Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) for an almighty bout of fisticuffs. The first half is a jolly romp through the Marvel Universe- with Robert Downey Jr's Iron Man pinching the best quips. But then it goes into Michael Bay territory with CGI explosion piled upon CGI explosion. A huge box office hit, expect these Avengers to assemble again very soon indeed. Superhero heaven. 5/5. d;-)

  its gonna kill me to say this but it was...Average...

Right let me just start off by saying i'm a massive fan of the avengers individual movies all have their unique take on the marvel universe which i find intriguing, i believe the hype of this film just blew it up too much for me i was expecting way more and i guess i shouldn't of, the hype of a film can be its fall, i mean look at prometheus.

Now i'm not saying i didn't enjoy it i thought when there was action it was explosive when there was comedy it was gold and when they assembled it was awesome. I feel some characters were not given enough screen time while too much emphasis was put on iron man, as much as i love tony stark the tone should of been spread evenly, the likes of Thor, Hawkeye and Hulk (until the end) barley got a look in.

Joss Whedon did the best job he could of done, the direction was a tad choppy for me sometimes felt like bits and bobs thrown together like a slideshow, he handled the action scenes fantastic and can see why he's already got the Avengers 2 directing job. Also i know the film is on for near 2 and a half hours but i feel it could of been a bit longer to make the story a bit richer, i've heard 30 mins of the film was cut although i believe most of the cut footage is of Captain America adjusting to life in the 21st century.

One last little problem is Loki, i don't think he should of been the villain of this movie, he had his time as evil-doer in Thor, its like going over old versions of what we have already seen, even in Thor i didn't find him much of a villain.

Thankfully this is just the start of something that can be truly epic, every superheroes first story is of origin so it takes time to kick off running, this is an avengers origin story we've had there individual stories and this was there first as a team. Avengers 2 has already been green lit so hopefully next time round these problems will be resolved. Overall a very worthy attempt at finally assembling the Avengers.
8/10

  Brilliant movie

This movie was great, packed with action and even has comedy in it. I'm really looking forward to it being released on DVD.

Just found out that in the UK we aren't getting any of the special features, including the highly anticipated Director's Commentary. America is getting the lot.

Brits will have to fork out for a more expensive offering down the line. And we'll do it too, because we're gullible idiots and we like abuse.

After four years, five lead in films and the weight of just how the Marvel Cinematic Universe would all be pulled together into one single film.............Joss Whedon came along and delivered The Avengers..........and made it look like making it work was the easiest thing in the world!!

Now I have very mixed opinions on the Marvel Cinematic Universe's first phase of films introducing each main character, as some have been better than others, and I confess that because of that I did not have the highest of expectations when I went in to see that..............nothwithstanding that I know Joss Whedon has talent and love his TV series.

Even at that, I was massively and purely entertained by this blast of pop summer Blockbuster perfection. THIS is what so many other summer films have aspired to in recent years, where characters and a story come first and then the spectacle comes second. In the order that it should be! Whedon does make a few stumbles in the first half hour or so as he weaves together the introduction of the film's familiar villain, then Tony Stark (with a nice cameo from an Iron Man co-star), and the others. Once he's done that, however and he has every character together comes what is actually my favourite segment of the film as each character is allowed to meet, appraise and THEN call out each other on their natures. It's also laugh out loud in places thanks to Whedon's trademark quips and the delivery of some the cast (Chris Hemsworth gets a perfect line to deliver at one point and does it hilariously!) before the action packed finale sets off and while it may be fair to say that parts of the extended action finale in New York may echo Micheal Bay and Transformers, you'll find that while the action is just as spectacular you'll care a bit more about who is in the middle of it all.

All in, this is by far the summer blockbuster of the year, light in tone, but with everything that a FUN summer film should have in abundance! It's almost a shame that Whedon can't get involved in more of the films but if anything is certain, it's that he's GOT to be locked down to write and direct The Avengers sequel, because it's his work that made this film the delight it was!
