Surprisingly good movie! Some freaking hilarious bits and CGI graphics to boot!! One for the guys and the girls :)
This has already become one of my absoloute favourite movies - brilliant mix of action, comedy, and some of my favourite superheroes. Amazingly done, the characters all fit together so well and were... Read more completely badass. The Hulk had some especially hilarious moments, a must watch! I'll be buying this one!
Really enjoyed it - far better than I expected given it's an mashing together of previous films and lead actors.
I really watched this just to see what all the fuss is about. Great to see a movie with all the superheroes coming together to save the world. I did enjoy it but probably wouldn't see it again. Special... Read more effects were quite good and the acting not too bad either. But if you are not a Marvel Comics Superhero fan, then don't bother, because you probably won't enjoy this.
Enjoyed this movie immensely, I was surprised at how good it turned out to be.
Watchable without requiring huge amounts of attention. Definitely better than Cpt America (which pretty much sucked), and probably better than Thor, but I think not as good as the Iron Man films. I... Read more did find myself thinking 'this is a bit unlikely' a lot, which was probably a bit silly given the premise, but is maybe an indication of how difficult it is to get lost in the 'reality' of the film.
Joss Whedon really pulled out all the stops. Good overall action movie. Great fx, sound, acting, etc. pretty ACE overall. Violent (so no appropriate for young people) but good brain holiday.
The Avengers sets a new benchmark for super hero film which was a big thing to do after The Dark Knight Rises. Although it can be watched as a stand alone film would recommend that you see The Incredble... Read more Hulk, IronMan 1 and 2, Captain America and Thor with the latter 2 a really a must.
The action is great after a strong build up and the humour in the way the heroes interact will have you chuckling out loud.
chose this one for the grandkids but.....watched it one arvo myself & not really my cuppa but i enjoyed the action & humour of it
Sure it has big, flashy special effects, and the studio clearly had a huge budget, but the story line was almost non-existent and in places didn't even make sense. The number of super-heroes was too... Read more many and the film jumps around in an incoherent mess without focusing for any length of time on any of them, this leads to zero character development. There is a sense throughout that the film makers were simply trying too hard and trying to fit too much into it.
Now super-hero films are not known for realism, but some parts of this film, such as a flying aircraft carrier, were so absurdly ridiculous that they were unintentionally funny. Other parts, such as Iron Man taking off his suit when facing Loki were just plain stupid. And then there was the pace; a good portion of the film was spent with the characters arguing amoungst themselves, before it finally got going and they started to work together, after that was a big fight and....the film ended.
