The Avengers

The Avengers. I watched it after all the hoopla and accolades worn through. Estimates were, that it was the top grossing film of all time for the first week of opening. Or something like that.

Well, I sat down in the theater with my 3D glasses on. Watched the action. A villain named Loki, bent on doing what??? You guessed it, taking over the world. No surprise, as most shows and features are about this. They are looking for some power cube, in order to create a portal to allow a huge alien army in to subdue the planet.

The only thing standing in their way, is the shield group and a few superheroes that hopefully will form a future avenger group. Samuel L Jackson does a good job in playing the guy in control. He is the director of the Shield top secret movement, and as always, plays a good role in these situations (Not too often we do not see him in this role). First star, goes to Iron man himself. His quick witty, often smart humor, puts him as my first star of the show. Robert Downy Jr. has found himself the perfect shoe for the fit, in the shoe store.

Scarlet Johannson is a breath of fresh air, Mark Raffalo does an excellent job as the scientist that may turn green anytime. Chris Evans does a terrific job as being an army minded Captain. Jeremey Renner does a good job as Hawkeye. He does look like a precision shooter.

All in all, this film was just about all it could be. When I think about how I was a big Spider Man fan, and how this series became totally off base with the comic book history, I was afraid of watching this one. But, this show did not have many bravado or corny catches ( it did have a few, however). I hope Spidey goes back to his roots, and does not mix the too far away with the too soon revealed in the comic book realm.

In conclusion, good job. This film deserves what it got from the box office. 4 out of 5 stars, for my rating.. Have a good night, till next time..
