Movie and Film Reviews (MFR) Action The Avengers (Written Review by Steven Kaufmann)

The Avengers (Written Review by Steven Kaufmann)

The Avengers is essentially 6 great tastes that taste great together. The culmination of one of the most ambitious film project ever, Joss Whedon helms a film that virtually could not exist 10 years ago. Over the last few years Marvel Comics began work on a film project leading with Iron Man, followed by The Incredible Hulk, then Iron Man 2, Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger. All of which, in my opinion are extremely good movies. Each film introduces a character or 2 that begin their development there and gather into one giant pool of superpowered awesome in The Avengers. The Avengers is, essentially, the movie that got it all right. A great cast, great writing, superb special effects, stylish action sequences, stellar cinematography and is just one big fun ride from start to end. If you liked any of the recent Marvel movies you are bound to like this one. The story is a familiar one, evil thing attacks and must be stopped by a group of heroes. But what Whedon and Co. does with that makes this a memorable and fantastic flick. A special nod must be given to Mark Ruffalo for his portrayal of the Hulk. I was a big fan of Edward Norton, but in all honesty and in no disrespect to Mr. Norton, Ruffalo just does it better. I could go into a list of all the great scenes and lines that made me love this movie, but why bother? I’m just gonna leave you with this: If you thought that Michael Bay had effectively killed big budget action with his horrendous Transformers trilogy, this film brings action back with a vengeance. And guess what? Unlike those Transformers flicks, you actually like these characters! Check it out, it is a blast.
