Spanning the globe, a daring recruitment effort begins..
- Great cast who performed exceptionally well
- Excellent unpredictable story line
- The action scenes were spectacular
- Captain America: Big man in a suit of armor. Take that away and what are you?
- Tony Stark: Uh, genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist…
Rather than creating an uneven mix or trying to focus more heavily on any one specific character, writer/director Joss Whedon has constructed The Avengersas a balanced ensemble. In addition to everyone getting at least one great action sequence, all of the characters are fully fleshed out and given an arc to work with, whether it’s Captain America’s struggle to adjust in the modern world, Thor’s guilt about his brother, Iron Man’s ego and single-mindedness, or Hulk’s fear of his own power. Even Black Widow and Hawkeye, who were largely minimized in their previous appearances, are fully fleshed out and provided with backstories that give us a better understanding of their characters.
It is an absolutely amazing movie that the whole family will enjoy.
