Marvel's The Avengers (Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson) in Theatres on April 25, 2012

Marvel's The Avengers (2012)

Rating: 4/5
Review: Though there were some boring parts (I caught my boyfriend sometimes sleeping beside me), it was a nice movie. When the earth won at the end (we always win anyway, right?), I wanted to stand up and clap. The effects were amazing! Who's my favorite Avenger? The Hulk! Who's yours? ;)
Recommendation: A definite must see on the big screen

"Audiences have been eagerly anticipating this first all-hero extravaganza for years. The wait was worth it." - Claudia Puig, USA Today

"With a script that never forgets its heroes' humanity and no shortage of superpowered set pieces, The Avengers lives up to its hype -- and raises the bar for Marvel at the movies." -

"If you are a Marvel fan, then The Avengers will feel like Christmas. Thanks to the merry doings of the director, Joss Whedon, all your favorite characters are here, as shiny and as tempting as presents under the tree." - Anthony Lane, New Yorker

"Whedon, a pop-genre magician best known for Buffy the Vampire Slayer, is a master of viewer manipulation - because he never gives up his own seat in the crowd." - Amy Biancolli, San Francisco Chronicle

"The banter has zip, the effects are fun, the climactic battle is decently spectacular, and if the 3-D is mostly expendable, there are a few scenes where it adds a nice kick." - Bob Mondello, NPR

"A slow start, a single star performance surrounded by indifferent acting and an onslaught of computer effects that range from seen-it-all-in-"Transformers" to a whole sky full of spectacular stuff in the midtown Manhattan climax." - Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal

"Really, who cares about another battle? We know how this is going to end." - Karina Longworth, Village Voice
