The Avengers Movie Review
April 28, 2012
One of the most awaited movies for Year 2012 is finally out here in the Philippines (sorry U.S. peeps, we went first)! I’ve been waiting for The Avengers since I saw the after credits from the movies Thor and Captain America. I loved the movies featuring each of the superheroes so I was really overly excited to watch the Avengers. Who wouldn’t want to see all those kick-ass superheroes in one single movie?
The movie, The Avengers, is based on the popular Marvel comic book series ‘The Avengers’, that was first published in 1963 and became a popular comic series ever since. I didn’t have any collection of comics aside from the Archie series but I’ve always been fond of the characters in Marvel comics. I’m just glad that the producers decided to make it into a movie. They didn’t just produce a movie, but they definitely made an AWESOME or should I say, PERFECT adaptation of The Avengers. I was just too impressed that even after a day of watching it, I’m still on a high of the movie. I’m gonna watch it again on tuesday and this time, I’ll make sure I watch it in a better theater.
When Thor’s adopted brother Loki (Tom Hiddleston) emerges to cause havoc on earth and steals the Teseract/Cosmic cube in order to rule the human race, Nick Fury (director of S.H.I.E.L.D.) finds himself in need of a team of skilled warriors to help and save the Earth. He gathered a super kick-ass group of superheroes that could have him with his mission and they are called The Avengers. However, being superheroes on their own, will they be able to work together and fight Loki & his alien army to save the world?
- Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) – genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist
- The Incredible Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) – man with anger management issues
- Thor (Chris Hemsworth) – hammer-wielding god of thunder
- Captain America (Chris Evans) – righteous and man of morals
- Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) – master archer
- Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) – Russian spy
For all Avengers comic book lovers, I’m sure you already know the story and what’ll happen, but boy, this movie really is made of pure awesomeness. I can’t believe that in spite of creating so many Marvel movies in the past, they can still outperform with a movie like the Avengers!
The movie really blew my mind! It made so much impact not just to me but also to other people who have watched it as I see my Twitter timeline full of raves about the movie! It’s not just one of the most awaited films of the year but it definitely will be one of the BEST films of 2012.
The action scenes, humor, the super sleek one-liners, stunts, the casting and definitely, the performances were just spot on! The Avengers had the perfect formula for a successful film. Each and every superhero were highlighted in the story. The performances of every celebrity in the movie was just so good! Even if they got Mark Ruffalo, who haven’t played Hulk before, was pretty successful. I never even missed Edward Norton or Eric Bana playing the Hulk while watching the Avengers! Mark Ruffalo did so much justice for Hulk. In fact, Hulk is now my favorite Avengers member.
I am so looking forward for the next Avengers movie already!
(I’m sure there’ll be one as after credits of the Avengers proved it).
My Rating for Avengers: 5 out of 5 stars (PERFECT!)
