This is a very good movie. It has a great story line. It also has great acting. It also has great special effects. The Avengers age of ultron is better. But still this is a great movie. I give it 9 out 10.
The only threat of the villains is Loki, who could be handled easily by Banner or Thor single-handedly. Barton and Banner were mind-controlled by Loki, but that was just temporary. Loki just started a war that he would never win. The storytelling is highly unbalanced. The visual effects and action sequences of the last fourty minutes were sensational and thrilling, yet the long part before it was boring and useless. Some action scenes lack credibility and look fake, as nobody gets injured or bleeds, and the editing of the film is not convincing. The name "Avengers" is misleading, since these superheroes are not avenging and are just saving the world. Particularly, the war criminal Loki was not sentenced to death. "Savers" might be a better name for the team.Overall, this film does not live up to its hype.
The Avengers is popcorn entertainment at its best. It's a superhero movie and it's not ashamed to show off that baggage at all. If anything The Avengers takes that label and runs with it all the way through its saving-the-world story.Does it need to be particularly deep? No. Is it an entertaining film that managed to get on by just fine before Spiderman's introduction to the MCU? Yes, absolutely. Cap, Thor, Hulk, Iron-Man, Black Widow and Nick Fury are great team players overall. I didn't count Hawk-Eye then because for some reason Jeremy Renner's portrayal just doesn't work for me. Everyone else is just fine though.Avengers may be rendered a little obsolete because of its sequels but I reckon it's still a rock-solid movie that's a great time-killer through and through.
***Disclaimer I prefer DC over Marvel***I finally caved to see this film with consistent comments of how great it is...and of what I liked in Marvel didn't even exist in this film...I will say it's a well made film and had some killer action and some funny parts...but still leaving Spider-Man and The Punisher out of the biggest Super hero film ever released makes this well made film a disappointment...
