Dan Cole’s review:
Joss Whedon has done something remarkable. He has crafted a blockbuster so grand in scale it's awe-inspiring. But what is unique is that it is an intelligent and emotional ride from start to finish. Whedon has managed to balance the action, emotion, plot and characterisation like a master craftsman. He has also infused the film with humour, genuine laugh out loud humour. This is film-making at it's finest as the superhero genre gets a film that transcribes the feeling and tone of the comic book medium perfectly. It's a benchmark in blockbuster entertainment and films like these don't come around that often.
