The Avengers Assemble is a $220 million marvel (pun intended) and it continues to rake in the money. The film though is not as revolutionary compared to The Cabin, also created by Joss Wheddon, that bagged just $30 million.
The movie is highly commercial billed for the Hollywood branding with a good dose of fun and a climax that will have your jaw drop.
The weakest point of the movie is the premise why Loki, played by Tom Hiddleston) wants to see the downfall of mankind. And yes, the audience might also ask why he wants to do it.
The special effect in the works, the antagonist plus the sidekicks Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) and Professor Erik Selvig (Stellan Skasgard) is not a team of villains that you will not be scared of. Basically when you look at it, it is like a rugby match between anorexics and the selection of the best players the sporting world has known. Well that is just to exaggerate the point.
Even when Loki is not the scariest of villains, this still triggers Nick Fury played by Samuel L. Jackson to activate the team of superheroes to go after him. The team consist of The Avengers namely Thor, Iron Man, Captain America, Black Widow, and the Hulk.
What brings the fun into this movie is the conflict between the egos of The Avengers. And this battle of egos bring about the great action scenes. The Hulk in his Bruce Banner state even acknowledged that they are not playing it as a team, and they are timebomb waiting to go boom.
Captain America played the model soldier saying that they should stick to the orders while Tony Stark was the loose cannon, self obsessed, and volatile multi billionaire superhero.
Of course, the Hulk is the perfect candidate for anger management.
Scarlett Johansson, playing the Black Widow, is a real eyecandy.
Once the villain trashed Manhattan, it was time for the protaganists came together and the feel just became irresistible.
Truly Marvel-ous. The Avengers is at par with the best Batman and Spiderman movies.
