Movie Review- The Avengers (2012)

Movie: The Avengers (2012) aka Avengers Assemble- Ireland (English title). USA title- "Marvel's The Avengers"

IMDB Rating- 8.9/ 10.

Watch the teaser trailer:

P.S.- If you have an option between 2D and 3D, I would suggest you to go for 2D. The graphics are awesome. I was disappointed watching 3D because I personally don't like 3D. Glasses make the movie look dark and clumsy.

Finally, today the much awaited movie 'The Avengers' is released all over India. I being one of those desperate fans of superheroes rushed to watch the 1st day 1st show of 'The Avengers'. I had went in there to watch the movie with extremely high expectations, and I'm glad to say that I am overwhelmingly delighted and satisfied with the movie. Well, I like all the super heroes in this movie. But, being a Robert Downey Jr. fan,  I had planed to watch this movie just for Iron Man. But now it had made me fall in love with all of them, all over again.

Its indeed, every fan's dream come true...The fans of the iconic comic characters Hulk, Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, Black Widow and Hawkeye!

Its a unique concept to unite our favorite superheroes and form a team to fight evil and save the Earth. The movie was a power-packed combination of action, intensity and humor. The movie has a run-time of +2 hours and it just keeps you gripped to the edge of your seats as time flies by. The brilliant performances by the cast, the incredible script and the action sequences will make you wonder! Director Joss Whedon did an excellent job bringing together all our superheroes, and balancing their star egos and handling this multi-million project so diligently.

Let me tell you about the characters and cast in the movie.

Our 6 Superheroes

Iron Man/ Tony Stark- Robert Downey Jr.
The Incredible Hulk/ Bruce Banner- Mark Ruffalo.
Thor- Chris Hemsworth.
Captain America/ Steve Rogers- Chris Evans.
Black Widow/ Natasha Romanoff- Scarlett Johansson.
Hawkeye/ Clint Barton- Jeremy Renner.

The Villain! 
Loki- Tom Hindleston. 

And the rest...
Nick Fury- Samuel L. Jackson.
Agent Phil Coulson- Clark Gregg.
Agent Maria Hill- Cobie Smulders.
Selvig- Stellan Skarsgard.
Pepper Potts- Gwyneth Paltrow.

The Iron Man didn't just waltz through the movie in his suit rolling over the other characters. No other characters were overshadowed by the 'larger than life' image of Tony Stark. Everybody owned the movie and did their best. Hulk adds to the humor and actually steals the show when he 'hulks out'. It looks amazingly real, more real than in the Hulk movies. The witty remarks and sarcasm of Tony Stark towards Thor and Captain America only spices up the humor part, literally wanting you to laugh out loud. The conversations between Loki and Iron Man, "We have an army"......."We have a Hulk" makes you feel the wit and razor-sharp sarcasm of Tony Stark.

Every superhero has a different personality and set of rules and way to work which leads to the unexpected rivalry among them, when Nick Fury, Director of S.H.I.E.L.D brings them together to form a team, his programme called as 'The Avengers initiative' to fight with our villain Loki and his army. Tony Stark, Thor and Bruce Banner do not follow the command structure, while Black Widow, Captain America and Hawkeye are used to following orders. The bitterness and discord between the superheroes, the fight scenes are spectacular.

The view of Iron Man and Thor battling it out was something you don't want to miss. The action sequences and the special effects, the dialogues are superb! The music and soundtracks only did good. It alleviats the action sequences and makes you completely lost in the movie making you a part of it. 

The Black Widow is good at her moves to pull down the enemies and she looks just so stunning. She also had a love interest in none other than our very own the bad-ass Hawkeye! Captain America gives, the first Avenger, was perfectly solidified by Chris Evans, with his acting more natural and dialogue delivery more spontaneous. And Thor- OMG! His make up and attire made him look like a God who has just sprung out of some comic book. He interacted with the other heroes organically (obviously that was after the battling with Stark!) and looked so natural!

Loki's character too was extremely interesting. Tom Hindleston delivered it with such a sharpness and charisma that at one point of time I felt like he was really casting a spell on me too. I was watching him with my mouth open! Excellent job! The attire, make up, his hair styling suited him and his character of Loki so well, OMG! I never thought I would fall in love with a character like him, the bad guy...Sigh!

Miss Pepper Potts...She looked amazing, she didn't wear her usual formal outfits,  but something casual and maintained that charm of hers. She pairs so perfectly with Tony Stark!

And Agent Coulson or lets just call him Phil, he too was pretty good, subtle yet brave...Too bad...He died in the movie :(

I loved the movie and its worth watching, not just once! I will surely get a copy of 'The Avengers' and celebrate and cherish it as one of my all time movies for the rest of my life...

Thank you Marvel for giving us this wonder to marvel at! Great job by the entire team. The best Marvel movie till date. Joss Whedon is the king of comic book movies! Hats-off to him.
