Movie review: The Avengers

 the first show at 12.05


the sizable crown gathering at about 11.30pm yesterday.

I don't know what possess me to get the 12.05 am show. Maybe its the fanboy in me or I am just following the hype. As  you all know the Avenger  is a team assembled by Nick Fury to fend of evil forces that no man can withhold on earth. Loki the half brother of Thor decided to seek revenge and summon an army to destroy earth and reign as the supreme being on earth.
All of the superhero movies so far have a cliche plot, but what I really like about this movie is that mostly all the characters have  back stories, you get to know them even more. There are time when it gets quite draggy and tired, but it gives depth to the character-it's not just a big explosion, and big set pieces involving battle sequences.
Apart from that, the comic timing was excellent, providing relief to the already tense problems the heroes are facing. The icing on the cake goes to the hulk a.k.a Bruce Banner for being the funniest. Minus points  goes to the way the superhero end the war. Why didn't Loki give specific instructions not to build a safety mechanism. Seem so highly illogical looking at the circumstances of things and sadly Hawkeye is seriously underused in the movie.
Well put that one flaw aside, The Avenger is an awesome must see movie this year. I kid you not peeps.

Movie rating 8.0/10.0
