You can skip movies 10 times but never go back.
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.…
Loki, the God of Emo, steals this blue looking superpower energy source. If in the wrong hands, the blue stuff will make the world a living Hell. So, what do you do to save mankind? Well, you assemble the Avengers, and pray their egos can all fit in one room.
I get it now. You need to watch the previous MCU movies, to fully appreciate this colossal gathering of the Mega Powers. I watched this, between a couple of Cap movies. A lot, went over my head. So, I decided to go back, and watch again, since I'm caught up with all the "Phase One" movies. Wow! It's like watching two different movies. The blue stuff? Yeah, I've seen it,…
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…
THIS MOVIE REALLY WAS THE ONE THAT GOT ME INTO MARVEL. I'D SEEN THOR IN THEATERS FOR A FRIEND'S BIRTHDAY PARTY, AND REALLY ENJOYED IT, BUT I DIDN'T GET INTO EVERYTHING UNTIL THE AVENGERS. I COULD GO ON ABOUT HOW THAT WAS DUE TO THE FACT I HADN'T ACCEPTED MY FATE OF TOTAL NERD UNTIL THE AVENGERS CAME OUT, BUT I WON'T.
ANYWAY, I LOVED THE MOVIE, AND ENDED UP SEEING IT TWICE IN THEATERS. I WAS A FULL ON LOKI FANGIRL. EVERYTHING YOU HEARD OR SAW ABOUT 2012 LOKI FANS APPLIED TO ME, AND, AS A RESULT, I ENDED UP GETTING INTO RPING THROUGH LOKI.
I'M RAMBLING AT THIS POINT NOW, SO I'LL QUIT WHILE I'M AHEAD. LET'S JUST SAY THIS MOVIE HAD A BIG IMPACT ON ME, AND I CAN STILL WATCH AND ENJOY IT NOW AFTER I'VE ALREADY SEEN IT A MILLION TIMES.
Cuando Vengadores empieza nos enfrentamos a una película algo sosa y aburrida basada en momentos más o menos deslabazados. Sin embargo, soy incapaz de trazar la línea a partir de la cual la película se convierte en un majestuoso entretenimiento. La trama es un plan (el de Loki de conquistar la Tierra) matizado por un plan (el de SHIELD de recuperar el Teseracto) condicionado por un plan (el de Loki de humillar a los humanos) impulsando un plan (el de Nick Furia de reunir a los Vengadores). La película es un tira y afloja entre el dios nórdico y el personaje de Samuel L. Jackson en el que los supuestos protagonistas se ven poco más que como títeres que no…
This movie is too long and sloppy and enjoys its needless destruction so much, but it was still one of the most fun experiences I had in a cinema that year. All Marvel movies are basically either this or Iron Man (big CGI fest or origin story) with some notable exceptions and there definitely could have been worse benchmarks.
I remember when I saw this in a theater, after the movie had finished, I heard a boy yelling "Yeah!" over and over again. His joy of having seen so much awesome onscreen was exactly how I felt, but of course I was too uptight to show it.
Marvel's big experiment continues to be entertaining years down the road. It isn't the most nuanced or complex film that Marvel Studios has done, but no movie since Sam Raimi's "Spider-Man" trilogy embraces the goofy fun of comic book movies like this one. The characters are well balanced with none of them taking over and each having a small arch in the bigger narrative. The humorous character beats are the soul of this film, ensuring that we care during its action set pieces. The hellicarrier attack and the Battle of New York remain two of the best scenes in comic book movie history. If I had to choose one film to showcase the appeal of the genre to someone, this would be it.
I loved that super heroes were still flawed individuals
the one good thing the mcu ever did. rest in shawarma
Too many whites
I feel like this movie is 60 years old.....A Classic™
Oh look ooooo black widow beat up a DUDE and then put on high heels, that's so goofy that a WOMAN could kick and it's SO funny BECAUSE OF SAID GOOFINESS.
actual quote from Chris Evans: "grr I like to PUNCH I am so angry puuuuunch man! Punch I like to PUNCH"
Look how quippy iron man is he's SO FUNNY BECAUSE OF HIS QUIPS LAUGH AT HIS QUIPS!!!!!
These movies irritate me, thank you for your time.
Help me out with this one guys.
"It's Mission Impossible!" is the true peak of cinéma.
Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
