|The Avengers Review|
I also enjoyed a lot of small things that casual film goers will not pick up on that only a comic fan would. These things are some plot points others just small little things the characters did. Thor spinning Mjölnir as he did in the comics was such a geek moment for me. Mind you he did not do it as well in his solo film. Also the fact that Loki still uses the Hulk to "destroy" the Avengers but to his dismay he inadvertently brings them together. Amazing touch of Marvel cannon done in a way that is refreshing and definitely feels new.
|Yup it is one of those times.|
I am not going to give spoilers here as what turns the tide that makes these heroes decide to finally get together and fend off the incoming invasion. but I must say it all flowed so nicely. The story never let up and I never felt as if there was a slow moment going on. It had a gradual build and finished strong. I highly recommend it and look forward to what Marvel does next in the franchise. This is not the end of this. By the way. I saw quite a few people leave at the first sign of credits. Don't Do This!!! You will miss out a key factor of the story and also a nice group clip of story.
I must say that this will be the movie to beat. I do feel sorry for most of the summer movies coming after this. Even the new Batman has a big job to do to dethrone this juggernaut of a film.
If you have seen the AVENGERS let me know your thoughts would be glad to hear what your opinions of it were.
