DKsaid on Tuesday, April 30, 2013 6:36:52 PMLoved the fight scenes between the superheroes. Many have debated who would win in a fight between one superhero or another. The Thor and The Hulk fight was fantastic. In fact The Hulk was super all the time. The thrashing he gave Loki was one of the best I've seen in any movie.
Agent Romanoff seemed to get in the way of the scenes she was in (why didn't they call her the Black Widow?). She never got beyond being a female superhero. It would be ok if a male came to her rescue sometime. All the other superheroes had to rely on another from time to time but because of perception fears, Romanoff can't be seen to need a man to help her or even have any character flaws like the others did. With the costume she was wearing we didn't even get sexy out of her either. In the final battle, (somehow large alien metal armored soldiers were vulnerable to arrows and pistol bullets) for a better story, it should have been Hawkeye to close the portal to avenge his treatment at the hands of Loki but Romanoff got in the way.
new trailerssaid on Thursday, July 05, 2012 10:06:28 PMThis too-long adventure is a sensory overload --- complete with loud, protracted battle scenes and hunky super heroes who provide the necessary eye candy. It's also very funny, and highly entertaining.
Chrissaid on Tuesday, May 29, 2012 11:35:23 PMIt has a good amount of action with comedy (so many memorable lines) thrown in it. Some may complain that the plot development in The Avengers was too simplistic, but this movie was the culmination of what was set up in the previous Marvel movies. After you watch them, the whole becomes greater than the sum of its parts.

Swindlersaid on Monday, May 07, 2012 11:36:23 AMOK, I saw THE AVENGERS yesterday and it was better than I expected, i kept waiting wath was going to happened next, and I note that my hands were sweting, I was tense. Many exciting and funny moments, acting was basically outstanding, each character with their own differences took the atention, even Pots!, wow, I'll see it again, there where amazing acting moments, definetelly the best Superhero movie by far... The Hulk reinvindicated!, Wow! Stark stole the show! Captain America, the wisest!, Black Widow was SUPERB in every aspect! THOR really changed for good! Ruffalo has magical acting skills as always, very interesting Bruce Banner. Hawkeye was ok, but I would espect more in another take... The movie was so neat in 3D, it's simply a Gem!
Rafsaid on Friday, May 04, 2012 5:54:53 PMthought it was way too over the top. plus the plot was pretty dull and undercooked. there were funny moments though and it was exciting at times.
TDKR will be way better

James Smith said on Wednesday, May 02, 2012 10:39:12 AMBryan, You are right, I haven't looked at the comics in a long time, and appreciate being corrected. I will correct your presumption about me: it wasn't the 'race' pot I was attempting to stir, but the P.C. pot. As I said, I would just as bothered if the races were reversed. In 'The Year of the Dragon', a female reporter who is white in the novel, was played by an Asian actress, which changed an important aspect of the plot. I understand that changing Nick Fury's race doesn't change anything else about him OR the plot of this movie, I just like to see movies be faithful to their source. Okay?
Gustavosaid on Tuesday, May 01, 2012 10:58:46 PMOne of the best critics, great review. I saw the movie yesterday, it's amazing.
Bryansaid on Tuesday, May 01, 2012 5:26:15 PMJames Smith:
Allow me to "nerd out" on you here. In response to your question about whether Samuel L. Jackson should play Nick Fury, I encourage you to check out the "Ultimate Marvel" universe. Starting over 10 years ago, this is a new telling of the Marvel characters, including a seminal series called "Ultimates", which is essentially the Avengers.
In the Ultimate Marvel universe, Nick Fury is African-American and not only that, he has the face of Samuel L. Jackson! The Ultimates is really the model for the Marvel movies, and Samuel L. Jackson said he HAD to play Nick Fury - because after all, he already IS Nick Fury.
I understand you are looking to stir the race pot for some unknown reason, but you should have researched further, and you clearly haven't paid attention to Marvel's best stuff for many years.
