“The Avengers” Movie Review
Tapping an unlimited power source being investigated by scientists at S.H.I.E.L.D. headquarters, Thor’s (Chris Hemsworth) evil ambitious brother, Loki (played by Tom Hiddleston) joins forces with a powerful alien world to attack Earth via an access portal.
Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) gathers various super heroes to fight Loki and his evil army, but, not before Loki forces Hawkeye (local Modesto native, Jeremy Renner) to join his side.
The remaining super heroes form a loose, sometimes contentious, team that is not really effective….and are getting their asses kicked.
A cry worthy event happens (yes…I cried) which finally forces the super heroes to put aside their egos and work together under the command of Captain America (Chris Evans).
Robert Downey as Tony Stark / Ironman is terrific. His one liners are very funny and the whole theater laughed several times during the movie. Mark Ruffalo as the Hulk is great, as is my favorite actress *sigh*, Scarlett Johansson as the Black Widow. Clark Gregg returns with his terrifically understated performance as Agent Phil Coulson.
OK for kids, no f-words, in fact, no cursing at all. The action, after a slow start, comes fast and furious, but, is of the comic book variety ok for the whole family. Very funny one liners caused the whole audience to laugh out loud several times….very cool.
Stay all the way through the credits. You will LOVE the very end.
Did I mention that Scarlett Johansson is in this movie, yup, Scarlett Johansson. 🙂
