The Avengers (2012)
“And there came a day, a day unlike any other… when Earth’s mightiest heroes found themselves united against a common threat… to fight the foes no single superhero could withstand… on that day, The Avengers were born.”
Want a spoiler?
They all died in the end.
Kidding. I’ll try not to spoil anything.
This is, by far, one of the best movies I’ve ever seen (or maybe it’s the best)! I’ve been waiting for this film since last year and as each superhero movie went by, my expectations were getting high. I can’t help it, so I also set myself for the disappointment.
But hell, I guess my expectations weren’t huge enough!
The film exceeded all of it. Hey Josh Whedon, I’m officially one of your fans! You made an exceptional movie that we’ve never seen before.
I’ve always been a huge fan of Thor and Iron Man. But now, after seeing the film, I began to love all of them: Loki’s brother, the demigod; the super-soldier, the living legend who actually lives up to the legend; a man with breathtaking anger management issues; and a couple of master assassins (as what Tony Stark stated). And by the way, I’m straight but… I think I’m attracted to Scarlett Johansson. I thought she was just another pretty face with a pistol, but she’s freaking hot with her astounding stunts.
This movie works on so many levels. It makes you draw on just about all of your emotions. The entire cast delivered their roles splendidly. The script was really detailed and tied with a sharp wit of humor. The action scenes were beyond amazing and satisfying, each one better than the last. It made the audience cheer and left them with awe. I felt as if there wasn’t any bad performance. The effects were also a top-notch! The cinematography was stunning all throughout the movie. The 3D wasn’t that necessary but it gave the film an extra punch. The soundtrack was also good and it managed to alleviate the action.
This is a rare kind of blockbuster these days.
Marvel fans, I assure you, you will not be disappointed.
P. S. As usual with the Marvel films, stay around for the post-credit scene. You really have to see it!
