Marvel's The Avengers

Title: Avengers
Director & writer: Joss Whedon
Cast: Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Tom Hiddleston

The evil god of mischief, and brother to Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Loki (Tom Hiddleston) takes the tesseract cube (last seen in the awesome Captain America movie and also known as the Cosmic Cube by comic-book fans) and uses it to bring an alien army to enslave humanity. Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and S.H.I.E.L.D soon gather Earth's mightiest heroes to form the Avenger's Innovative. And, while at first they clash, they come to terms and unite to save the NYC from sure destruction.

Let's not even mince words here, this IS THE ultimate superhero film. It tops the original Iron Man (which I always liked more than Dark Knight) and is perfection on celluloid. From the beginning to the very end, it is a rip-roaring, full throttle assault. This dear readers is fucking nirvana.

Whedon scores again, as he did with the amazing Cabin in the Woods, he proves he is a true fanboy and gives us the kind of movie you see only in your wettest comic-book dream (OK. not the one where the Black Widow fucks Spider-Woman with a strap-on but maybe the porn parody will have that). There is NEVER a boring second, as it moves at a breathtaking pace. The FX are jaw-dropping and the images of massive death and destruction are simply killer.
The acting is great! The amazing script allows all the characters to get the right amount of time and interaction is perfect between them. Downey Jr. is excellent as always as my fav Avenger Iron Man, he has some of the best lines in the movie. Hemsworth is great as Thor. Evans is just so fucking good as Captain America. Johansson, whom I haven't liked for years, was much, much better as Black Widow here, than she ever was in Iron Man 2. In fact, to me this is is her best acting in ages. And, the first time in centuries she inspired any sexual attraction in me. But, to me Cobie Smolders, as Agt. Hill, is hotter. Anyway, Ruffalo is excellent as Bruce Banner, and the Hulk RULES in this movie. They finally got him perfect!!! I really liked Renner as Hawkeye. He was a badass. But, it's Hiddleston's Loki that really shines, as an arrogant, evil asshole.

I LOVED the two scenes that happen in the middle and the end of the credits. FUCKING AWESOME!!!

This movie has made a KILLING at the box office and rightfully so. A fucking godsend this is a two hour and a half geekgasm!! It is THE movie of the year, and I doubt any movie will top it. See it again!! NOW!!!!

**** out of ****
