Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
Some assembly required.
When an unexpected enemy emerges and threatens global safety and security, Nick Fury, director of the international peacekeeping agency known as S.H.I.E.L.D., finds himself in need of a team to pull the world back from the brink of disaster. Spanning the globe, a daring recruitment effort begins!
The Avengers, or as I'd like to call it 'How to go from a 36 year old to a 12 year old in 2.5 hours', is this generation's Star Wars. Or Back to the future. Or Indiana Jones. It doesn't matter, pick one, it's iconic.
This will not be a rational review. It never could have been as I am a silly comic book geek. Whether good or bad, it would simply be impossible for me to approach this film rationally. I am so happy that at the centre of this film lies a big, thunderously thumping heart.
Technically this film is practically perfect. There are so many unbelievably impressive set pieces you get to see, it is simply stunning.…
When Marvel announced they were going to set up their own film studio, not only making individual superhero movies but also set them in the same universe and using the solo outings as a way to build interest in a mega-collaboration with four of the biggest heroes in comic books, it seemed like an ambitious folly that was doomed to fail. When most of the solo films turned out to be merely decent the ambition seemed to be misplaced, even if the films were financial successes. However, my reservations were thankfully unfounded as not only have they managed to cleverly assemble (if you pardon the pun) the disparate heroes into a cohesive and consistently exciting story but Marvel and Whedon…
Rise up with me, my friends!
I have been called an idiot for liking this.
I have been called a moron for liking this.
Apparently, liking this means you're a Whedon fanboy.
Apparently, you and I are not allowed to like this film at all.
Apparently, you and I don't give a fuck and this was my fifth viewing.
It's still brilliantly paced.
Still immensely entertaining.
Still a cocktail of characters that tastes delicious.
Black Widow is still scrumptious.
Loki still a fantastic villain.
Still has one of the best boss battles ever.
Still captures the Marvel Comic vibe perfectly.
Still makes me…
Up until now, I never truly understood all the fuss about Joss Whedon. I never related to Buffy, never got into Firefly or Dollhouse, and while I enjoyed Serenity I didn't worship it like some. But at long last, Whedon has delivered a piece of work that blew me away, one I truly believe will swiftly enter the pantheon of classic action-adventure movies. The Avengers is not only far and away the best of Marvel's (mostly impressive) movie staple, it's a candidate for the best comic book movie ever made.
High praise indeed, but to my mind utterly deserved. Whedon has done the near impossible here - bring to life the greatest superhero team in fiction while delivering excellent character…
To kind of steal a line from The Rock... FINALLY! THE RON HAS SEEN THE AVENGERS!
This film was like when you get super excited as a kid to do something or go somewhere and it pays off. You have a blast, you drive your parents nuts talking about it, and you bounce off the walls with excitement until you eventually pass out from exhaustion!
My Letterboxd friends know I generally prefer the darker comic book films so I was interested to see what I made of this film. Well call me impressed! Joss Whedon did an excellent job giving us all the action you expect from a film like this, but also managed to deliver excellent snappy dialogue which…
One of the most entertaining blockbusters of all time, The Avengers may not have the perfection of the holy grail of comic-book adaptations, i.e. The Dark Knight or even Batman Begins, but its significant emphasis on perfect balance of humour & action throughout its runtime makes up for a highly rewarding experience that is far greater than what most films of its genre ever manage to come close to.
Six Marvel superheroes in one movie, same save-the-world bullshit that we have seen & been disappointed with countless number of times and yet, The Avengers works in an unexpected but very effective manner and is bigger, better & far more amusing plus enjoyable than all the previous films of the Marvel Cinematic Universe combined,…
A pinnacle of its genre.
Entertaining, also for people who are not fans of superheroes.
After half of the origin stories were dissapointing and the last entry to the MCU was the worst of them all, it is finally here -The Avengers.
And wow, that was some breath of fresh air. In what has to be the best MCU movie when it was released, Iron Man, Captain America and friends fight the bitchy step-brother of Thor, threatend by an alien invasion.
The movie wants you to watch the whole of Phase 1, except for maybe the Captain America movie, to understand everything, where the characters come from, why they react how they react and so on.
If you saw those movies you will have a blast, because this is over 2 hours of total action,…
Just a lot of guys in tights running around punching stuff, and quipping at each other- in other words, exactly what it's supposed to be! And nothing more. Unmemorable, though. Nobody remembers quips. All the characters talk the same way, too! If you read the script with the character names covered up, you'd have no way to know who's talking.

What I got to say about "The Avengers" is that it's a marvelous superhero movie that I have ever seen before. "It's absolutely a action pack, thrilling, and moments in this movie that as great humor as well." The performances by the hole cast is magnificent. "Everyone is skillful to very high degree." The directing by Joss Whedon and screenplay by Zak Penn is so spectacular. The cinematography is well done. The score in this movie I personally "love this score so much!" It give the movie more powerful energy that give the movie a perfect sound and even when the effects are going on "It get even better." "I'm raving that "The Avengers" is the best action movie of all time. It's that good. This is a must see movie!"
I'm lookin to AVENGE myself with because my girlfriend threw the RING i gave her away...
Infinitely outstripped by Age of Ultron in thematic scope, but gleaming in simplicity.
(Even though Steve and Tony arguing vis-a-vis "everything special about you came out of a bottle" is really just characters arguing about their backstories and nothing meaningful.)
I'm sure the reason most people loved this one so much was because it was all of the superheros in one movie, which is cool I guess. It's unfortunately it get's pretty boring in places, filled with silly dialogue explaining all sorts of silly plot points. I can't help but cringe sometimes at the writing, as it's totally obvious that it was written by one of those nerdy superhero fanboys (specifically one named Joss Whedon). The action towards the end and most of the humor is what makes this fun.
