The Avengers ★★★½

A (chronological) journey through the Marvel Cinematic Universe

My enjoyment of this film has improved significantly in the wake of having watched its predecessors over the past few weeks. The cast has excellent chemistry, and its present from this first union. The action is gratuitous but mostly fitting for the story being told, and this film accomplishes something that I've not elsewhere in the MCU - it actually makes Hulk menacing ... until he isn't.

But honestly, I can't deal with Phil Coulson being the force that brings The Avengers together... I just can't.
