Well, now I know them. Thanks to a houseful of the male species I was recently escorted to the movie theatre to watch the new Marvel Avengers movie and I enjoyed myself.
The Avengers is not the deepest movie of all time but it was enjoyable and, as is often the case, the best part of this movie, in my humble opinion was the humour and, well, The Iron Man and maybe even The Hulk...and I suppose some might have preferred all of the superhero action...
Here's what a few other more well-known movie reviewers had to say about The Avengers:
I loved it when Roger Ebert said, "This is like an all-star game, or the chef's sampling menu at a fancy restaurant." For me, it was a great introduction to six Avengers characters.
The Movie Mom calls The Avengers, "a smart, exciting and engaging superhero story that deftly balances seven larger-than-life characters, their personal and inter-personal struggles and their interplanetary battles." It takes entertainment seriously.
Flixchatter says that she saw the movie on IMAX 3D and that it was worth every penny so if you are trying to decide what format to watch this movie in, you might want to consider checking out the rest of her comments.
My favorite video reviewer, Jeremy Jahns, rates Marvel Avengers, "Awesome-tacular" and says that whether you are a Marvel fan or simply a superhero fan, you will love the movie. Here's his video with my usual warning that Jeremy uses some off-color language and that this video contains a small spoiler:
Have you seen the movie? What did you think? Did it live up to your expectations?
at the movies!
