Take a super hero movie – loads of action and unexpected comedy. (Hey super heroes have to crack some jokes, right?). Now let’s multiply that six times! That, sir, is what ‘the Avengers‘ have in store for you.You will be looking over the shoulders of 8 super-heroes, their action, drama and comedy will keep you on your toes. From one hero’s perspective to another – they keep your mind jam packed with excitement.
At this scale (of plot and people) – either they bore us to death or they make a film that leave us saying “Fuuuuuccckk… that was amazing!” Joss Whedon managed to pull of the second bit.
Movie starts with the business right away – Loki (Tom Iddelston) – half brother of Thor (Chris Hemsworth), the hammer bearing demi-god super hero in the Avengers – is leading an army to bring war on humans, he wants to rule the planet. (Yes, * energy sources* are also involved).
There – you have a villan.
Now Nick Fury of S.H.I.E.L.D. brings together Iron Man (Robert Downey), Thor [Shakespeare], [De-frosted] Captain America (Chris Evans), Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), [Sexy] Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Hawakeye (Jeremy Renner) to stop the forces of evil.
Oh wait, the war actually blows up a lot of buildings and creatures. Even then, Iron Man keeps his calm to offer Loki a drink but then Hulk interrupts Loki’s Godly speech.
Watch the film and you will know what I am talking about.
The film is worth a watch in 3D. Though, during some scenes, you might find yourself taking off glasses to actually see something but most scenes are worth it. Especially the war.
I think there was scope for a bit more action, but film won’t disappoint you overall. Also, did I mention there are unexpected moments of comedy? Those are priceless!
Is it worth a watch? Book your tickets fucking now and the mother shall know you wearteh her drape.
