Movie Review: The Avengers

The much awaited gathering of superheroes on screen finally is out, “The Avengers.” And people are lining up just to get a glimpse of the movie.

The Avengers” is produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Paramount Pictures, is a the onscreen version of Stan Lee’s Marvel Comics’ sensational group of superheroes.

The film is about how Nick Fury’s S.H.I.E.L.D. put together superheroes to retaliate against Loki’s attack to Earth with the help of alien lifeforms “Chitauri.”

There was never a dull moment in “The Avengers” movie, especially for moviegoers who are fanatics of the comic franchise. This is a REALIZATION of their comic fantasies.

Loki’s entry to earth triggered the gathering of Ironman, Hulk, Captain America, Hawkeye, Thor and Black Widow.

The movie showcases the challenges of putting together diverse superhuman and demigod, independent personalities to act as a team.


The Avengers” features good writing, direction and 3D animation rolled-out into one blockbuster movie.

I have to say that putting together Marvel Superheroes and real-life big names in Hollywood was not an easy task. Nevertheless, Director Joss Whedon was able to blend the artists and the characters together in a way not to overshadow each other.

I like how the movie showed each DISTINCT character of the superheroes – both the strengths and weaknesses. Like, for instance, how Tony Starks (Ironman) and Dr. Bruce Banner’s (Hulk) wit were put into play; the tactical and leadership qualities of Steve Rogers (Capt. America), covert skills of Natasha Romanoff (Black Widow) and Clint Barton (Hawkeye); and leadership of Nick Fury and the rest of S.H.I.E.L.D.

And of course, the unforgettable moments wherein the superheroes show funny moments, which turned moviegoers laughing at their seats. “The Avengers” showed good quality of humor.

Though, I find one scene wherein there was a “slight” of doubt for me. It was during the time that Capt. America went through S.H.I.E.L.D.’s “high-tech” flying fortress – that no one was able to see him, considering that the ship was a HIGH-SECURITY aircraft. Hmmm…. Nevertheless, the whole movie was FANTASTIC!

In general, “The Avengers” is worth every money you put in to watch the movie.

That’s why, I watched the movie TWICE on the big screen, ONE during SM Cinema’s e-PLUS event and the other one with my son at SM Cinema North EDSA using my loaded e-PLUS Card.

NOTE: You will know why Hulk trended on Twitter, as you watch the movie. :-) For the first time, I enjoyed watching HULK. :-) To be honest, the two first Hulk films (Eric Bana and Ed Norton) was not that entertaining. The latter was better than the first, but I know it could have been better. :-)

As for Marvel Studio’s signature “closing credits” clips, “The Avengers” have a more powerful villain to go up against in the character “Thanos.” So, better not go out of the theater until the movie is really finished. 😉

I expect that “The Avengers” part 2 will boast more of the Marvel superheroes. EXCITING!!!

Locally, (Philippines) “The Avengers” is showing from April 25, while US moviegoers will have to wait until May 4 (US date) to watch it.

    I also like the Avengers. I agree with you about Hulk. To be honest, I watched the movie because of Ironman and Chris Evans. Pero sa moviehouse, the outstanding one for me was Hulk.  I’m looking forward to see the sequel of it.
