The Avengers Movie Review

Get ready to assemble to the movie theater, HollywoodLifers! Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth, Robert Downey, Jr. and the rest of the Marvel superhero gang deliver the goods like nothing you’ve seen before.

Attention, all guys! After your girlfriends have forced you to go see The Lucky One or The Vow, it is time to payback the favor and take your girl to The Avengers. But here is the hook: they will love it too! Whether you have seen the other Marvel films like Iron Man, Thor, Captain America or not, this film puts the best of all those films in one great superhero package!

The best thing about The Avengers is not that it’s fun, funny and action packed — but it’s all of that combined and mixed with originality, in a sea of movies that are often cookie cutter and the same boring blockbuster. Stars like Robert Downey Jr. and Mark Ruffalo seem to be genuinely having a blast playing Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk. Joss Wheedon‘s script and direction of Hollywood’s heavyweights is amazing, as we never get a shortage of the stars we came to see.

And we never get tired of caring about how they all deal with saving the world from the evil Loki (Tom Hiddleston). Speaking of Tom Hiddleston, he may have the best and most important part in the film, since he is the sole bad guy. He irks all The Avengers in his own certain way, which also allows every one to have a different reason to kill him or keep him alive. The main reason: he is Thor’s brother, who obviously wants to reason with what his brother is trying to do in killing Earth as we know it.

Now I know I haven’t really addressed any spoilers, and I will not because everyone should go into the theater expecting an amazingly good time. Most likely what you will get when you leave the theater is a ticket to the next showing. This film is for everyone and everyone should go see it.

So HollywoodLifers, If you don’t have tickets to The Avengers this weekend you are simply doing the wrong thing. I can’t stress enough how awesome this movie was to watch. I can’t wait to see it again multiple more times. Trust me, you will not be disappointed!
