Movie review
The Avengers Poster

Starring Robert Downey Jr, Chris Evans, Samuel Jackson, Scarlet Johansson, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner and Mark Ruffalo

Grab your seats and popcorn because this one is a ride and a half. Marvel Comics comes alive in a big way in the Disney smash The Avengers. Stan Lee  (The God of Comics), delivers yet another blockbuster film for the millions of geeks everywhere!

Loki, the wonderful Ice step-son of Odin (played exquisitely by Tom Hiddleston) has a bad attitude and is taking it out on the human race of Earth. Thor (played once again by the hunky Chris Hemsworth), plans to handle his wayward brother on his own. 

Thor is quickly enrolled into the 'Avengers Initiative'. A group of super heroes brought together to save the world from any threat.  Along with Captain America (played by the buff Chris Evans), Hulk (amazingly played by Mark Ruffalo), Black Widow (sexy Scarlett Johansson) and the pompous, self absorbed tycoon Tony Stark. aka Iron Man (played by the incredible Robert Downey Jr). 

Jeremy Renner plays Hawkeye (another super hero that falls under Loki's spell) and Mark Ruffalo playing the surprisingly sexy Dr Bruce Banner aka Hulk. Jeremy and Mark add a human level to the super heroes. Both troubled spirits who want nothing more than to be left alone. Mark Ruffalo makes the Hulk his own and brings him to life unlike previous portrayals of the massive green brute. 

Recruited by Nick Fury (Samuel Jackson in a role that is perfect for him) and Agent Coulson(Clark Gregg) of S.H.I.E.L.D.  

This two and half hour movie leaves you wanting more. Non stop action, thrills, tears and laughter make this movie a top draw.

If the cast doesn't get you, the story will. This is the movie of the year!

RAVENBRAN RATING  5 out of 5 claws!!!!

  1. Nice write-up. With over billions and billions of comic book fans and Marvel practically breathing down his neck, Joss Whedon was given one job and one job only and that was to not screw this up. Thankfully, he doesn’t even come close to screwing it up and makes this one of the funnest superhero movies in recent time.
