Plot Summary
When an unexpected enemy
emerges that threatens the
global safety and security,
Nick Fury, Director of the
international peace-keeping
agency known as S.H.I.E.L.D.
finds himself in need of a team
to pull the world back from
the brink of disaster.
Spanning the globe, a daring
recruitment effort begins.
Iron Man, Captain America,
Hulk, Thor, Black Widow
and Hawkeye team up to
conquer the God of mischief,
Loki (Thor's brother) in his
attempt to destroy the earth.
With all powers combined,
the task seems amateur under
the circumstances. But what
if this isn't the case? Imagine
each superhero on their own,
battling against each other
while trying to overcome the
evil, the most amazing race
to a super human empire. If
it was the Hulk against Captain
America, who would win?
Would a boomerang shield
prevail a rage ignited monster
with self-control? Would Iron
Man's genius armor defeat
Thor's super strength? How
will these superheroes
simultaneously take on
disaster, protect the public
and most importantly,

With a good 3D aspect, THE AVENGERS is one big superhero movie that does have a lot of action as well as scenes that are comedy and dramatic. The actors from the previous Marvel films have returned for this one except for Edward Norton who plays Dr. Bruce Banner aka The Hulk. The previous actor is now replaced by Mark Ruffalo and I would like to thank the director Joss Whedon who brought the Avengers comic book series to the big screen out of the impossible.

I have to admit, THE AVENGERS was definitely an enjoyable movie and I would recommend anyone especially fans of Marvel who will look forward to seeing this motion picture. I hope that Warner and DC might make the JUSTICE LEAGUE movie into the similar fashion as Marvel's title film.

Star rating: (5/5) Best Movie Ever

  1. I will be going to see this soon. I doubt that any movie until The Hobbit will be better than this.


    1. Let me know what you think of this movie when you have seen it.

  2. I just watched the movie the other day and I have to say that it was even better than what I thought was possible. It's hard to beileve that Joss Whedon really made the best comic book ever. Good review. I doubt that the Justice League will go The Avengers route since that will take years and the only thing that it seems DC wants to do is make something that will try to compete with The Avengers without any set up.
