Movie Review: The Avengers

THE AVENGERS is probably the most anticipated movie of the year. With such beloved characters and an all-star cast, this movie is sure to reel in the masses. The expectations were high because of the success of the other Marvel films, but I have to say I was thoroughly impressed by this movie.

If you’ve watched Thor, then you know of Loki and his master plan to rule a kingdom. This time he has his sights set on Earth and will anything to achieve that. With his godly powers and his magic stick, he does everything in his power to make humans kneel before him but Nick Fury of S.H.I.E.L.D is there to stop him. Except he can’t do it alone. This is where the band of remarkable heroes comes in.

Each of the heroes were perfectly casted for their roles. I loved them all, but I have to say that Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) were my favorites. I even loved Loki (Tom Hiddleston ) whose his acting was off the charts. He conveyed so much with his facial expressions. Loved him. He made for a great villain.

Another great thing about this movie is the humor. The banter between the all the characters was hilarious and I also loved the tension between them all. How do you bring all these superheroes together and expect them to work as a team? It was definitely interesting to watch them go at it and even fight each other.

Which leads me to the next thing I want to mention – the action. Full-throttle, action-packed doesn’t even cover it. From the very beginning you are bombarded with special effects that will blow your mind. You will definitely not be bored while watching this movie.

 I do have one complaint though... Why weren’t there any shirtless Thor scenes? A girl’s gotta get her fantasies from somewhere, right?

The Avengers is definitely one you should check out. You can trust me when I say that it won’t disappoint.

NO shirtless scenes??? Was expecting some nudity! Look like they must have catered to their male fan base and not us shamefully smutty loving females?? Lmao.

I wanted at least an Iron Man or a Thor shower scene.....:(

Anyways I'm excited to see it too!! :P Thanks for the fun review Annie Girl!!;) XO

I WANT NEKKID!!! But it's OK. I almost didnt notice the lack of abs until the movie was over and I was at home.

Wasn't it great, Crystal? I thought it was soo well worth the wait. I want a sequel!!

They had the perfect moment when Dr. Banner woke up in the smashed building. I was disappointed not to get at least a little flash of hip or something. And definitely, there could have been more shirtless. Geez.

I have to admit, ruffalo totally redeemed the character of the hulk.

you should try and catch Cabon in the woods. younger chris hemsworth and he is shirtless. its also a joss whedon film!!!

Underworld Love Addiction said...

Great review. I was surprised with how much humor there was in the movie too. It was really good :)

Laurie said...

Thanks for the review, we didn't make this weekend, but will soon. We have the Iron Man movies, so funny, but I have to admit, we just watched Thor last weekend and OMG, Chris shirtless, drool! I guess I can do without seeing some skin for the humor and action. I'll just remember him sauntering around shirtless, I think it's burned into my brain, LOL!

Adria said...

Well I'm a huge superhero/action movie fan AND a huge Joss Whedon fan so I'm so glad to see that so many people are saying this film is so good. I have yet to see it though :(

I need to get to the theater.

Just saw this movie today and loved it!
All I have to say is: Thor = yummy!

Sophia Rose said...

Loved it too! I was so worried about anticipating this movie and then it being a flop. So relieved! But now I want another. LOL!

Timitra said...

I definitely want to see it-thanks Ann for that great review!

Harlie Reader said...

We show it too and it was AWESOME! The only thing that kinda disappointed me was Pepper being in the movie. I'm a purist and trust me, the scenes that she was in with Tony, are not in the comic books. :)

Loved everyone in it. Mark was a great Hulk. Never saw that coming.

I could eat Chris Evans up. Seriously...
