Avengers Movie Review

Without trying to spoil the movie for those that haven't seen Marvel's Avengers (which can't be many of you), here is our spoiler free review.

If only allowed one word to describe the Avengers, well we'd go with brilliant. The action sequences, the humor, the character relationships, everything was just amazing.

There was a great concern going into this movie that with so many heroes somebody wouldn't be getting much screen time, but the fact of the matter is everyone got a fair share; including Hawkeye, Black Widow, and Nick Fury.

The movie also provided Bruce Banner with quite a significant amount of screen time too; not just a few seconds where he becomes angry and turns into the Hulk for the rest of the movie. This move was great because it allowed Banner and Tony Stark to have a rapport with one another which added to both their character development.

As you can imagine there was quite a significant amount of action in the film, but not to the extent where the movie goer loses interest in the film or cause the film to lose the storyline. Action was also nicely spaced, not too much at one time; which allowed for the story to flow nicely and time for important conversations / interactions to take place.

The quality and quantity of humor was also great. The jokes were actually witty and well placed. Most people will have to see the Avengers at least twice due to the fact that you miss somethings due to laughing so hard in a few places. Seriously though, who's going to complain about seeing this film a few times?

Don't be too eager to jump from your seat and leave when the end credits start to roll either. There are two clips after the end credits start to roll; one will be seen right after the actors' names are listed and the other after all credits have run through. You won't want to miss either!

Marvel's Avengers earns a 5 out of 5, is directed by Joss Whedon (Firefly, Buffy the Vampire Slayer), and has a run time of 2 hours and 23 minutes.

The one question that continues to bother me is: why, with all his technology and seemingly limitless resources, does Nick Fury not get that eye fixed?
