My Review: Do I really need to review this movie? I had a horrible experience in the theatre, I literally had to block all irritating sounds and concentrate on the screen. And at one point, I called the manager regarding the whole row in front of me. Despite my horrible experience, I did enjoy the film seeing as though super hero movies are my favorite type. A group of superheroes in one movie, what could be so bad about that? For an estimated budget of $220,000,000, they sure went all out with lots of special effects and ‘marvel’-ous action scenes.
For a 2+hour movie, you would think I would get bored somewhere towards the middle (like in the Hunger Games), but I didn’t even notice the length. It had a balance of super heroes on screen, it wasn’t a one man show, you saw all the heroes almost equally. But I would have liked to see less talking and more fighting with Nick Fury. There was good chemistry between the all the big shot characters and it just all seemed so natural, or very well scripted.
I had a couple of favorite scenes, Thor vs Iron Man, Hulk vs Thor, Loki being thrown like a rag doll by Hulk…and I loved how the Black Widow wasn’t there just for looks, she’s a pretty good fighter. We’ve already seen character development with most of the characters due to prior movies, except for Hawk Eye. He was only in a small scene in Thor, so there’s not much development in the movie with his character.
It will most likely be the movie of the year…But we will have to wait and see Batman first.
Marvel Studios, you did good – 9/10
