The Avengers Reiview~

Move over Hunger Games, The Avengers have Assembled! The Avengers should be the #1 movie of the year! There were so many amazing moments it's hard to be able to put them into words. I walked out of the movie and all I could say was "WOW!". First off there were people in the line who had gotten to the theatre at 3 am MTN time. After Disney handed out the bracelets and started allowing people inside,the intensity from everyone standing there was overwhelming.

The lights went out in the theatre and the intensity of the excitement just blew the roof off. What we saw in the trailers was not even half of the amazement this movie brought to the table. Between the action scenes and the hilarious dialogue, the movie was pulled together perfectly. The Avengers had its serious moments, but even with the seriousness of some of the scenes *including the action ones* there were still laugh out loud moments. Something I noticed that other people left out was the 3D part of the movie.I don't know if those people saw it in 3D but today I did. The 3D made the movie that much better! I recommend that everyone who goes to see it watches it in 3D. It brought you into the movie, very few movies actually do that these days.

Going back to how the trailers only show a fraction of the amazement. You barely see Black Widow or Hawkeye in the trailers, and saying that they wouldn't have made a difference if they were in the movie or not is so untrue. Without any one of the characters the movie wouldn't be what it actually is. Although these two characters aren't as big as Iron Man or The Hulk, they have really great moments that show their strengths. I read somewhere that Marvel Studio executives said that "This movie is not Cinematic enough." well to be honest they obviously don't know what a good movie is supposed to actually look like. Joss Whedon did better than i could have ever imagined.

This was the best movie I've ever seen.Incredible,awe inspiring,and just monumental in both scope and importance.The best action scenes,over the top and surprising. It will surprise you every step of the way.Bottom line its a flat out no holds barred,60mph,beast of a ride. From beginning to end I had a smile on my face.

Thank you Marvel Studios..and thank you Joss Whedon.

More infantry waves keeping coming through portal as well as more carrier ships.

*Hulk and Thor take on carrier down,by Hulk jamming a shard from the carrier itself into the carriers head,and Thor slamming his hammer down on the shard for it to fully penetrate and kill carrier.

Funnymerc - 4/15/2012, 12:38 AM
It sounds great, I have my place booked for 3D. The 3D does in fact look amazing. Thanos...hmmm interesting I don't know much about him so I cannot wait!

So happy that Black Widow and Hawkeye got to show how badass they are.

According to you and everyone else who had the chance to see it...Whedon did every character justice and fans of each individual Avenger will not be disapointed!

Question, was the hype warranted? :)

Coulson dies? Oh my!

I'm glad that the whole team seems to be essential to the butt-kickin'. The trailers made the lineup look a little odd. A comic on the subject:

the hype was definitely warranted,this was a great movie and just a great experience overall. Can't wait for everyone else to see it.
gerryg08 - 4/15/2012, 11:38 AM
I have to agree with everyone,Hulk was my favorite Avenger and stole the show. Everyone else had great scenes that really showed what they could do. But finally seeing a version of the Hulk that truly showed what he was capable of doing,made him my favorite. Only bad thing is he won't be getting another solo movie any time soon. But hopefully the reaction from this movie will change that. MCU just got that much better. This movie deserves to reach 1 billion,and I'm confident it will.Aside from everything I am just so glad we finally got a movie that everyone here on CBM deserves =)

@gerryg08 hi body... can you tell me how was Thor vs Iron Man vs Cap?

I'm to worry about to see a weak Thor or having an equal power as Cap and Iron Man.

I really wanna see Thor kicking Iron man's ass.

Thank you

PS: sorry for my bad english.
gerryg08 - 4/15/2012, 11:52 PM

It was a great scene,alot better than the trailers make it out to be.To me i think Thor comes out on top,iron man is pretty much up there though,but cap didn't really fight them so cant comment on his performance.

Sounds like a pretty good start to the movie.

I'm hoping Thor has a good showing though happy for all of the heroes to show up well.

As an Aussie sci-fi writer: I’ve written a solid collection of Marvel (espec Thor) fan fiction, why not check it out?

I asked this in another thread but did not get an answer: does Iron Man use the UniBeam during this movie?
dkrokos - 4/17/2012, 9:07 AM
Can anyone confirm if abandoned German subway scene made it into the movie? AKA Loki's hideout.
NebOmen - 4/17/2012, 1:45 PM
Didn't the dude who plays Agent Coulson sign like a 5 movie deal or something like that?? That one totally came outta left field!
NR23 - 4/17/2012, 7:22 PM
Gerry, so does Thor come back via the Tesseract as well? Any mention of Jane Foster or Sif?
