  • “The Avengers” is a movie with comic book heroes, meant for those who like SciFi fantasy. A great combination of all the best super heroes and Marvel have done a great job. In fact it’s not really my favourite genre, but all in all, it’s very entertaining and well worth watching. I guess it’s better to watch it in 3D! The characters have depth and this is what separates “The Avengers” from most other movies in this genre. For SciFi-lovers this is a must-see!

  • You can sum up Avengers in one word…FUN. Some of the world’s greatest comic book characters all together in one movie, kicking ass to save us puny humans…who wouldn’t want to see that? And as great as it is to see the Avengers come together to save the world, some of the most fun is had when they butt heads and pound on each other just like in the comics. Iron Man vs. Thor, Thor vs. Hulk, Iron Man vs. Captain America….great stuff.

    Director Joss Whedon does a solid job showcasing all the Avengers without forcing too much story into one movie. Rounding out the individual superhero movies that have been leading up to this was no easy challenge. From Jon Favereau’s good Iron Man movies, to the marginal Captain America, and the abysmal Thor pic. Whedon molds the good and bad that he had to work with from the past stories and made an entertaining film.

    I’m not so sure I would crown The Avengers as the top comic book movie of all time (which is currently still The Dark Knight in my mind), but it was a blast seeing all the Marvel characters finally uniting in the same movie!
