Still my favorite Marvel film.
The Avengers is a groundbreaking achievement in cinematic terms. A culmination of Marvel's Phase One brings the title characters together for a non stop, thrilling and action packed entry into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The cast are nothing short of memorable as each character complements the other with Robertt Downey Jr's turn as Iron Man and Tom Hiddleston as Loki continuing to steal the show. However Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye is horribly underused and had so much potential. The group…
Great chemistry between the characters in this one. Some ridiculous plot elements, but easy to overlook.
I wanted to hate The Avengers the first time I saw it, and I did. Oh, sure, I gave it a decent 2.5 stars, but the movie annoyed me for how superheroy it was, how droll the bad guys (minus Loki) were. How unfrightening Loki was as the supposed bad guy.
It's possible that I might still want to hate The Avengers. In general the population's obsession with superhero movies goes over my head. But one thing has changed since…
The Avengers is a relentlessly entertains flick with a great villain, heroes and dialogue. Although I find the sequel a bit better, I still love this movie.
Doesn't quite hold up as well as I thought it might. The third act is some of the best superhero action ever put to screen, but the long build-up to the Avengers assembling isn't that compelling. The story is paper thin, but it's really all about the wonder of seeing all these characters in the same movie for the first time. Basically I can nitpick the hell out of a movie about finding some glowy blue cube thing, then Hulk…
A nice superhero movie featuring your favorites.
it's fascist as hell itself; its visual construction is bland, almost stagnant, spatially incoherent between cuts; its cinematography—at least 95% of it—is basically indistinguishable from a high-budget tv movie's; its editing studiously avoids any tension or build or emotional impact; its characters aren't people but quip machines; it's a novel of ideas without any ideas; it's cowardly enough to pretend it doesn't share its villain's revulsion for sentiment; it demonises internal critique and holy indignation as divisive while championing brute…
A friend of mine who recently saw The Avengers posted one of the best movie review-cum-status updates I've read on FB: "Oh my f#&%ing god! That was without question the best superhero film I've ever seen!" I gotta disagree with him, just a tad. The Avengers is certainly the best LIVE ACTION/BASED on a comic superhero film I've ever seen. But best superhero film period? I gotta save that honour for The Incredibles, sorry.
But considering I've seen The Avengers…
Nick Fury: We have no quarrel with your people.
Loki: An ant has no quarrel with a boot.
Nick Fury: Are you planning to step on us?
Loki: I come with glad tidings of a world made free.
Nick Fury: Free from what?
Loki: Freedom. Freedom is life’s great lie. Once you accept that, in your heart... [walks up to Eric Selvig and touches him with the scepter]
Loki: ...you will know peace.
I’m fairly certain this was the awesomest scene in the movie. That said, I never managed to watch it to the end. I did try several times though
