      Candice Frederick Reel Talk Online The comedic timing, coupled with his ability to maintain the authenticity of the characters, is worthy of praise. The Avengers delivers a popcorn feast that's the perfect summer kickoff. Rated: B+ Sep 8, 2017 Full Review David Stratton At the Movies (Australia) Downey's Stark/Iron Man steals the show because the actor is capable of making the tritest dialogue sound wonderfully witty, but the CGI effects are amazing and, despite its length, the film is very enjoyable. Rated: 3.5/5 Jul 7, 2015 Full Review Deborah Ross The Spectator This will be loved by genre fans, when all is said and done/ But at two hours forty, you may find it numbs your bum/ Seriously, more attention to character could have made it a lot more fun/ And now I have said all that, I believe my poem is done. Aug 24, 2014 Full Review Patrick Cavanaugh The Wolfman Cometh Seems like a miracle that something like this could be pulled off, fully amplifying and improving upon everything each solo MCU movie accomplished before it, while also standing on its own with the team dynamics. Rated: 5/5 Sep 24, 2023 Full Review Sean Axmaker Stream on Demand You wouldn’t accuse 'The Avengers' of being good drama, but the sprawling, splashy spectacle and its much-much-much-larger-than-life heroes makes for a genuine comic book epic for the big screen. Jan 7, 2023 Full Review Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review After four years’ worth of building piece by piece against mounting expectations, Marvel and Whedon have managed to satisfy the majority of fan expectations, and in some ways, even exceeded them. Rated: 4/4 Nov 20, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews

      Hughes S just amazing this movie is! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/28/22 Full Review Friendly Neighborhood M This movie works all around the board. It keeps the plot simple and adheres to the core of each character. Great acting too. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/19/24 Full Review Audience Member Marvel nailed it with this one. Every character gets their time to shine and interact with each other, which makes for great laughs and memorable fight scenes. The villain and storyline are also perfectly executed, that also teases Thanos. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/18/24 Full Review Dan R The first real superhero collaboration movie that worked really well. The visuals were incredible, hell of a movie. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/08/24 Full Review Jacob D A blockbuster cast with special effects and costume design that didn't age as well as earlier Marvel films. RDJ and Hiddleston carry this one. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 04/30/24 Full Review Liza K I want to share with you a review of the movie "The Avengers", which was released by Marvel in 2012. The film is directed by Joss Whedon. The film's budget is $220,000,000. Starring Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Tom Hiddleston, Clark Gregg, Cobie Smulders, Stellan Skarsgard, Samuel L. Jackson. The story begins with an experiment on the Tesseract, an ancient relic that is a source of infinite energy at the base of the SHIELD, where Loki, the God of lies and deceit, appears from a portal. He takes possession of the Tesseract and forces Clint Barton and Eric Selvig to also declare war for the subjugation of the Earth. Fury then turns to the most powerful heroes for help, activating the "Avengers Initiative" to save the Tesseract and stop the attack planned by Loki. He unites Steve Rogers, Tony Stark, Bruce Banner, the Thunder God Thor, Agent Romanoff and later Hawkeye. Together they must fight Loki's army to protect the Earth. The acting is excellent, I especially liked the performance of Robert Downey Jr., who played Iron Man. I had the feeling that he was not playing, but living this little life, getting tremendous pleasure from this image. I also liked the music playing in the film, especially AC/DC - Shoot To Thrill. I really liked the ending, where the true character of Tony Stark is revealed very well. It was interesting to watch, and if you like the Marvel universe, then you just need to watch it.
