MOVIE REVIEW: The Avengers (2012) Starring: Robert Downey, Jr., Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson

Ever since 2008, people have been anticipating The Avengers. Now finally it has arrived. But is it what fans had hoped for?

I’ll admit it right now, I know nothing about superheroes. I never got into them, never read their comics, nothing. Then I was invited to go see The Avengers. And now I wish I would’ve got into them a lot sooner.

This is a very well put together film. It makes references to the other Marvel films as well as being it’s own original thing. It also seems to give each Avenger equal screen time unlike some films, which tend to give one character tons of screen time, and make the others feel like a cameo.

In the film, Nick Fury (Samuel L Jackson), director of the espionage agency S.H.I.E.L.D must reactivate the Avengers Initiative to stop the Norse god, Loki and his powerful cube The Tesseract, similar to The Cosmic Cube in the comics (Yes I’m researching stuff!) Agent Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson) is sent to recruit Dr. Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo), then Agent Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) approaches Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.) Fury then approaches Steve Rogers (Chris Evans).  You’ll have to watch the movie to know the rest……

In conclusion, fans will definitively be impressed with this new film. If you are however not familiar with The Avengers, then I highly suggest you learn about them before viewing this film.
