Movies in Review: “The Avengers”

The movie that everyone has anticipated since last year has finally been released. The Avengers frenzy has outdone anything I’ve heard from a movie release. I was getting many calls and text messages from friends who found themselves turning away from the theaters because of the crowds…smh. I went to the movies today considerably early trying to catch a 140pm show, only to find that it was sold out as well as all the shows after until 1120pm…wow. Luckily there are plenty of theatre choices in NYC, so I quickly moved to my next destination. I was able to get a ticket, and 40min before the show was scheduled to start people were already lined up outside. Everyone was excited and filled with anticipation.  And the cutest thing walked in the lined behind me, a father dressed like Captain America with shield in hand, and his two young sons both dressed like the Hulk…lol. Sorry to say I was unable to get a pic :(. Sooooooo was it worth it………..

It was cool. The movie had a corniness about it that irked e a little, but it didn’t ruin the movie for me. I enjoyed all the characters, except Nick Fury…smh. I love you Samuel L. Jackson, but you are part of the corniness that I am referring too. I honestly didn’t believe him as the director of S.H.I.E.L.D. I don’t know, he just wasn’t doing it for me :/. But thank goodness everyone else was amazing. My favorite characters were Tony Stark and The Hulk…absolutely hilarious. Mark Ruffalo you did your thing as David Banner. I was exceptionally pleased especially since I was still wishing for Edward Norton…lol.

Captain America as I predicted got outdone in every scene that included Iron Man or Thor. But that is to be expected since his powers don’t compare to the other two. However I did like that the film worked to expose what makes Captain America so special. He is fearless and a natural-born leader, and that is the place he took in the film…loved that. The characters were great separately but even better together.

I enjoyed the film very much. Hopefully with the 2nd installment we are able to get introduced to other great characters, hopefully to replace Fury, and Black Widow…I’m sorry, but they weren’t my favorites. This movie has violence, but is still great for the kids, especially if you have sons. This movie will provide a family outing that everyone will enjoy. I was hoping to catch it in IMAX 3D, but it was sold out, and I had to settle for just 3D. The visuals are great so spending the extra cash for IMAX is worth it…A-

  1. REPLACE Fury and Black Widow?? I must say I wasn’t expecting that in your review!

    in spite of the “corniness” that irked ya, I’m glad that you enjoyed this movie so much! It’s such a blast and Whedon did such a fantastic job!

    • Yeah Fury was corny, and Black Widow was too much in this movie. She was a little extra. But overall I did enjoy the film. Yes Whedon did his thing superbly with this one. I was a little afraid after seeing that catastrophe of a movie Cabin in The Woods…lol BTW…I was looking for u…needless to say I didn’t see u :(. Did u find yourself in any of the scenes? I wanted to see it in IMAX 3D, but it was sold out everywhere so I had to settle for 3D. I may venture to check it again, especially since my Bf needs to see it.

  2. Yes, I spotted myself about 6 times. only 2 of the times are very very noticeable. The other times, I knew what to look for.

    thanks for looking, but I’m just glad you enjoyed the film.

    I’m going to see it tomorrow. Sounds like the hype was a little more than the actual movie but that people still found it worth it. Considering our choices nowadays I hope it’s great! I’ll look out to see how Fury and Black Window match up for me and let you know…Cheers 🙂

    • It was a really fun movie, just a little corny in some spots. But overall it was a joy to watch. It was worth the hype. I want to see it again in IMAX 3D.

      Can’t wait to read ur thought!

  4. I hear part 2 will be amazing!! Let’s hope so!
