This is not an Avengers Review… okay it is.
Joss Whedon (writer, director) did an excellent job maintaining the overall tone of the Marvel franchise while infusing it with his trademark heart and wit. Marvel’s The Avengers is bold, funny, action packed and emotional at all the right moments. With just about two and a half hours running time and a large ensemble there wasn’t a lot of time to spend developing each character (fortunately the other films in the franchise help with this). However, Whedon made sure that the audience gets a good feel for who each Avenger is, what motivates them, and what makes them Big Damn Heroes.
My recommendation, run out and see this movie in theatres, this thing was built for the big screen.
Are you going to see The Avengers? What are you hoping to see in the movie?
