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,…

NEM. LEHET. MEGUNNI.
Cuando las criticas de una película que quiero ver la ponen por las nubes ya me entra el tembleque...
¿Es "the avengers" la película definitiva de superheroes (ultimate)?.
No, pero casi.
Empecemos por lo malo: Es demasiado larga y punto. Es demasiado larga porque alargan en exceso las batallas, y en esta tenemos un par, que sobre todo la del portaaviones se excede en metraje. Es como si quisieran enseñarnos más y mas sobre lo buenos que son con los efectos digitales. Como el colega de turno que te empieza a hablar de un tema que le apasiona y no se da cuenta de cuando se empieza ha hacer pesado.
Ahora lo bueno: Todo lo demás. La historia, los personajes los efectos, el humor, etc, etc. He disfrutado como un chaval.
Nosotros tenemos un ejercito. Y nosotros tenemos un Hulk. Lo más.
This is a perfect summer action summer movie. It has everything you want. Comedy, superstar actors, action, and just enough plot to make you actually care. Marvel does a great job of leading up to this movie with the previous individual movies, and does a good job of giving just enough background in the beginning this movie to explain to the average viewer who everyone is. It's a great superhero movie, and a great action movie.
Non stop thrills as the world's greatest superheroes unite to thwart Loki's evil plan to blow up all the taxi cabs in New York.
Whether you like the movie or not, the unassailable fact is Marvel's blockbuster masterpiece is sheer brilliance in action. Yes it as no topical or dark themes at play, but that doesn't stop it from having utterly compelling characters with tons of depth. But it is also fun, entertaining, thrilling, tense, and whimsical as hell. In short, 'The Avengers' is one of the best super hero movies of all-time.
The movies continues on from the previous Marvel phase one films, where Loki uses the power of the Cosmic Cube so he can have an alien army assist him to becoming a world tyrannical leader with people being enslaved. Nick Fury reactivates the Avengers initiative, thus bringing Tony Stark, Steve Rodgers,…
+Mostly good performances, especially RDJ and Hiddleston
+Hulk looks nice for once
+ScarJo kicking ass
-The action is often super-close up and really lazy (except when they fight the giant metal slug)
-I don't care about Agent Coulson and his actor is not very good
-Definitely feels its length
-I know Hawkeye is a good aim but some of these shots are ridiculous
-The stakes never feel high because as Coulson says, it's in Loki's nature to fail
-Lame Stan Lee cameo
es ist ok aber die 0815 minions des bösen und die kinderkompatible geschichte sind nix für mich.
The Avengers is of course, the film where all the characters from the previous Marvel films (Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, etc.) had to team up to battle the evil Loki and his alien army. Now this is praised as one of the best comic book movies ever and is the third highest grossing movie of all time, but does this film deserve it? In my opinion, hell yes!!! Not only are all the actors great as their respective characters, but Joss Whedon did such a great job at handling the banter between them in both comedic and serious situations. It was also good to see that not all the characters would get along right away since it makes the…
