Mini Movie Review: The Avengers: ★★★★½

A movie this huge rarely lives up to the hype surrounding it, and one would even assume with so many well established characters and back stories coming together that the Avengers would be a recipe for disaster. But I am delighted to say that Marvel has put together quite possibly the best superhero movie to date. This one will probably break some records at the box office. The action is outstanding, as Marvel does best, and thanks to writer/director Joss Whedon the audience is treated to hilarious locker room banter between the hulking egos of the superhero team. Some interactions even settling the debate of "who would win if they went head to head?"

 There is no need to see this in 3D, but I do admonish you to get yourself to a theater and see this marvel of a film as soon as possible. I know I'm already looking forward to seeing it a second...and third time. Oh, and as most Marvel fans know already, make sure you stay until the final credit rolls.

Great review Kristian. This is a very entertaining film that continues Marvel's excellent track record in filmmaking. Whedon seems to have done the impossible of capturing all of these superheros and giving them all a chance to shine, and it doesn't even seem like it was much of an obstacle for him as writer and director. Great way to start off the Summer!

Yeah Hulk! He and Iron Man stole the show in my opinion .. I'm planning on seeing this again once the crowds die down
