    The Avengers

    ★★★★★

    You're missing the point! There's no throne, there is no version of this where you come out on top. Maybe your army comes and maybe it's too much for us but it's all on you. Because if we can't protect the Earth, you can be damned well sure we'll avenge it!

    You can debate for hours about Joss Whedon’s input into Justice League, but my god, what he crafted up here is the template of this decade’s successful blockbuster and…

Scott Cooper has just made not only the definitive and greatest western in cinema, this may well be one of the best films I’ve ever seen.
