WOW! Just WOW! Avengers is such an spectacle. From beginning to end you are treated to the largest and greatest superhero showdown ever put out on Cinema! I'm not saying this might be the best superhero movie of all times, but it's surely among the top ones!
All the characters are given their time and it's nice to get some back story on the SHIELD ones. The only character that comes out uneven would be Hawkeye.
Technically it was edited…
I'm not familiar with the books, so I cannot compare it to them. But as a movie it's a great one. Performances are all solid especially from the older actors. Lawrence was good but not great. The story was intriguing and I found the pacing perfect! And while I disliked the shaky cam, you understand it was there to distract younger audiences from all the bloody carnage going on at times.
I'll surely be at the theaters for the sequel. And will follow up reading the books.
Pretty good thrill ride and spy movie. It's not all action which is what I would expect with the involvement of a former MMA fighter as the star. But it turned out to be way more suspenseful and intriguing than I thought! Having a capable woman doing all the fights is a welcome addition to all the skinny Jolie attempts! So overall solid spy movie with very well done action sequences.
