The last hour is still one of the most purely exciting and fun pieces of popcorn I've ever seen -- my inner 8-year-old fully comes out to play with this one.
I still geek out every time I see this. Love every second of this film.
Also, it's even better when you get home from dinner and your wife puts in on without you telling her to.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Part 8 of my Comic Book Movies, Ranked project.
The following review contains spoilers.
Loki, bitter from his defeat in Thor, in which his brother prevented his attempt to become King of Asgard, teams up with an unknown but very scary partner in exchange for the power to become King of Earth, his brother’s new favorite place. Given a gem that can take over someone’s mind (a kind of “Mind Gem” if you will) Loki manages to take possession…
It's loud, it's long, lots of stuff gets destroyed. No one appears to be enjoying themselves too much.
If you like these Marvel movies you've probably seen and loved this. I just can't get into these much myself though.
this is so great but could use more ladies
A fun superhero movie. Not big on plot but big on action.
Just superb; pretty much everything they were trying to set up with the previous films and achieve when they combined the characters worked out beautifully
Steve Rogers: "I wanna know why Loki let us take him. He's not leading an army from here."
Bruce Banner: "I don't think we should be focusing on Loki. That guy's brain is a bag full of cats. You can smell crazy on him."
Thor: "Have a care how you speak! Loki is beyond reason, but he is of Asgard and he is my brother!"
Natasha Romanoff: "He killed eighty people in two days."
Thor: "He's adopted."
That conversation alone is worth the five stars!
So The Avengers eh? Not being a Marvel guy myself, I can say I was curious how this would turn out. I don’t have any ties to these characters per se, other than enjoying Iron Man and Captain America. The First Avenger especially was a very nice surprise. It was great to see a so-called “old-fashioned” character pulled off so well in a modern movie.
There were no apologies made for Cap, he was presented straight from the pages of…
Pandering. Talks down to the audience. Simplistic at best.
Cool, grand, explosive, Marvel.
I watched too many Marvel films last night and they are all the same movie; this is the best version of that one movie.
