The Avengers ★★★★½

With more iconic MCU moments than I care to rattle off, The Avengers is a joy from beginning to end
It feels larger than life without ever compromising its core, and for the scale that it plays at, its runtime flies by while still feeling jam packed all these years later
The matchups are straight off the pages of the comics, and they still look fantastic
The tension between the heroes is shot fantastically and feels like a great precursor to what comes in Phase 2
That “one shot” during the Battle of New York still brings goosebumps to my skin and a smile to my face
With being fully aware of all that comes after it, it’s extremely impressive that The Avengers still manages to feel as entertaining as it did the first time I witnessed its glory in theaters
Bring on Phase 2!
