Doing the impossible is what humans do best. Impossible things such as going the Moon are is only but one achievement that humanity has within its long list.
This movie proves to be no exception.
It is one of those cases where the idea would work extremely well or simply implode into itself. Could Hollywood truly make a cinema spectacular with not only big star names, but also represent some of the greatest comic book heroes of all time?
The answer is an incredibly pleasing one: yes.
The Avengers is a film where all the pieces are thrown together in the right order. Everything about this spectacle is amazing. It is an extremely polished film that looks absolutely fantastic. The picture is crystal clear. The makers truly put their craft to an ultimate test here where audiences will be bedazzled by just how smooth The Avengers is. Not only does Avengers look good in its quality, but the effects are engaging. From Bruce Banner’s transformation into the Hulk and Iron Man flying around to a truly epic battle in Manhattan, the effects are done positively right.
Of course, effects are not the only thing that makes a movie. Luckily, Avengers is covered in that department. Joss Whedon has done as an excellent job at writing these characters. There truly exists a sense of conflict not only from the enemy, but also from the group’s inability to unite against them. Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr. do well to show tension that stands heavily between the reserved and ready Captain America and the flashy, stylish playboy that is Tony Stark, aka Iron Man, respectively.
Mark Ruffalo and Chris Hemsworth do well to portray their characters, Hulk and Thor, as well. Newcomers such as Scarlett Johannson and Jeremy Renner fulfill their job,s too, and fulfill expectations for a blockbuster flick of this caliber. What is also nice is that the villain, too, is expanded upon and is a familiar face since it is Loki, Thor’s brother. This should be easier for audiences to accept if they have previously seen Thor before seeing this. It is glad to be said that this film prides itself in its characterization for everyone present to make a nicely woven story for audiences to enjoy.
Overall, The Avengers is an experience that should not be missed this summer. It truly does its job to glorify and represent the heroes which American pop culture has come to know and love. The Avengers not only raises the bar for future Marvel films to match, but graciously shows itself as it is – a vastly enjoyable summer movie for audiences across.
