For lovers of the written word, here's the review script in print form:
Finally. The Avengers is out in theatres! And holy crap, what a ride! How many movies were there leading up this, one of the biggest comic book collaborations of all time? Five?
When earth is threatened by an attack from an alien army, Nick Fury assembles The Avengers -- Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Captain America, and Thor alongside Nick Fury, Black Widow and Hawkeye -- to fight the aliens and their leader, Thor's half-brother Loki. Together, they'll either save the world, or avenge it.
I have been waiting for this movie for a very long time -- and finally its' here... I went into this movie nervous. Had I worked it up in my head to be the be all and end all of Superhero movies? How will it stand amongst some of the Superhero Greats like Iron Man, X:2, and The Dark Knight? And most importantly how will someone like Joss Whedon, a nerd god in everyone's mind, but one whose rep is more built on TV, adapt his talent for the big screen? Plus, who wasn't worried that when you put together so many main characters in line, you'd end up with a mess of a movie. But what we got here was an interpretation of comic legends by Joss Whedon -- who proved he deserves his geek god status-- no matter what the venue.
This movie is not only action packed from its very first moment to its last - but is also full of laughs and chills and thrills. The characters and acting are great... especially that of Mark Ruffalo who has filled the shoes of the cursed Bruce Banner/Hulk role. While I've never been a big Hulk fan this movie definitely changes that for me. Seriously -- I went back to see this movie a second time and found myself stoked for all of The Hulk scenes more than any other scene.
This movie is a good 2 and a half hours long - but it doesn't feel like that and has one of the most solid 3rd Acts I've seen in an action movie. Like I said before -- this movie has only been out for 3 days and I've already seen it twice and will probably see it a third time. Action fans. Comic Fans. Robert Downey Jr. Fans. Movie fans alike. This movie is for you!
Yay. Also -- make sure you stay after the credits. There are 2 secret scenes!
