The Avengers is an action-packed film that is definitely a must- see. The movie stars some great actors such as Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Scarlett Johansson as Natasha Romanoff (Black Widow), Chris Evans as Steve Rogers (Captain America), Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark (Iron Man), Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner (Hulk), and Jeremy Renner as Clint Barton (Hawkeye). All of these characters go into an all out epic battle in New York City against Thor's brother Loki, played by Tom Hiddleston. The Avengers movie made history by making $1 billion worldwide in 19 days.
The Avengers is a sequel and contains all the heroes from the movies Thor, Captain America, Iron Man 1 and 2, and The Incredible Hulk, There is a very interesting plot to this movie. Near the beginning, the evil Loki makes his way to earth through a portal. He immediately starts wreaking havoc on civilization, so via Nick Fury of S.H.I.E.L.D., these heroes are brought together in a last effort to defend the earth against this great and powerful enemy. At first they did not all get along, but later on they put their egos aside and made the world's greatest super team known to man.
The acting and personalities from these actors fit their parts perfectly. Robert Downey Jr.'s Ironman was as witty as usual with his humorous one-liners. It also seemed as though Black Widow and Hawkeye had some history together. Perhaps there will be a movie on those two heroes later on. The humor in this movie also added a great atmosphere to the film. There were a few parts in there that you would not even expect to be funny. One of the people who was not in this movie is Thor's love interest down on earth, Jane Foster (played by Natalie Portman). This is may be not that big of a deal to many viewers, but to others it could be.
The special effects in this movie were way too cool, right down to alien armies blasting through buildings and people and creatures coming out of mysterious portals. The fighting scenes were equally as amazing with their special effects. Hawkeye performed some awesome bow and arrow shots. Even the flight of the flying heroes looked very realistic.
This film was just an enjoyable well-rounded movie. It is rated PG-13 for intense sequences of sci-fi violence and action throughout, and a mild drug reference. I think it is a great movie for the family to watch and enjoy. I also think the quality was amazing with the graphics, acting, and special effects. I give this movie a rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars.
