The Avengers Review

The Avengers
 is arguably one of the most anticipated films of all time. It gives me great joy to announce that, by some insane miracle, IT LIVED UP TO THE HYPE.

Ever since Tony Stark was approached by Nick Fury and announced he was “putting a team together” the internet and nerd world has been squirming in anticipation of the giant blockbuster, and after 4 years and 5 films since Ironman first hit the screens we finally have the film.

The film boasts the largest collection of superheroes in one feature, and naturally this begged the question as to how could one director/writer do the concept justice without it being a fucking mess?

The major issue that could have screwed this film in its batty:

  • As with every character, a superhero is supposed to have an insane background story, so, how could one film possibly address all the background stories of 7 heroes and a villain without going for hours and resulting in mass suicides from audience members?

The solution to the major issue that could have screwed this film in its batty:

  • The production company released 5 films where each of the characters were introduced. Some (myself included) may say that making a 5 film franchise (soon to be 6 with Nick Fury getting his own) makes the production company little better than street whores, but they seem to know what they are doing, with all of the films being a great watch.

At first I was against Mark Ruffalo replacing Edward Norton as Bruce Banner/The Incredible Hulk,but I  liked his portrayal especially the antsy part of Banner and his preference to be left alone. Robert Downey Jr. of course does Iron Man as he always has, delivering his arrogant and cheeky lines with a good dose of sarcasm. The villain, Loki, was also an interesting one. Tom Hiddleston’s facial expressions in the movie is not unlike Heath Ledger’s Joker but Loki is more calm-crazy than hysterical.

In closing,The Avengers embodies what a summer blockbuster is.By far one of the best superhero movies I have ever seen.The 4 year wait was well worth it.
