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…
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,…
오랜만에 다시보니 재미남 ㅋ
"His brain is like a bag of cats"
lowkey this is what got me seriously into marvel. it was smth super cool and fun and thrilling that WASNT xmen what what. (i love xmen more than avengers tho what am j saying)
Puede pecar de un ritmo desproporcionado y muchos problemas con el guión.
Pero los vengadores cumple con lo que debe, un festín de superhéroes salvado el día de una forma entretenida y vivaz.
I'm not a comics. My form of comics is Japanese manga, but I'm aware of all the superheroes statues. I was persuaded to watch this movie and I was not disappointed! Even though I didn't know who is Natasha or the origin story of the Hulk, the compliation of diverse superheroes in one platform was intriguing and their differences in how to approach things is cleaver and realistic; just because we want to save earth, doesn't mean that we have to agree on on the method. The end doesn't justify the mean in selective cases!
The production values are phenomenal; didn't expect anything less. Weirdly; the background music was almost insignificant
Although I'm invested in the Avengers's world, I found this movie very entertaining. I might pick up a comic or 2!!
The Avengers is a 2012 comic book film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and is written and directed by Joss Whedon, the man behind hit television shows Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, and Firefly.
The last hour is, admittedly, a lot of fun, but it's the first hour and 20 minutes that really ruin this experience. I'm not saying that I only want one long action-packed scene. No, I just want an introduction to these characters that doesn't put me to sleep. The film spends way too much time on some aircraft in the sky, not doing anything remotely interesting. Characters are just walking around and talking about what's going to happen or what's been happening. Get on with the…
Part 6 of the MCU Movie Marathon of the 2016 summer holidays with my kids.
Still thoroughly entertaining. Set up so well by what preceded it.
Joss Whedon back in 2012: The Avengers is a special project. It is certainly difficult dealing with so many superheroes and fan favorites in only one movie. But I think I've done justice to Iron Man, Black Widow, Thor, Hulk *looks at smudged writing on hand* Capsicle and that other... Birdnest Dude.
Things happen, nobody knows why or what.
