THE AVENGERS (2012)


Why “The Avengers” could easily become a huge success? I think even some of you could answer thiz question. Thiz movie is the culmination of Marvel’s hard work over the past couple of years. The lucky guy who was appointed to direct thiz movie is Joss Whedon. The director of S.H.I.E.L.D. Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) initiates the Avengers initiative by assembling all the super humans to save the world from the powerful evil Loki (Tom Hiddleston). The storyline isn’t as dynamic as I think it is, there’s a time when the story is stuck and filled with unnecessary dialogue. The power of thiz movie obviously lies in its character interactions. Nick Fury is originally written as a white guy in the comic book but Samuel L. Jackson confidently steps in to play thiz character. Thiz isn’t the first time thiz has happened. It reminds me when Michael Clarke Duncan portrayed the overweight crime boss Kingpin in Ben Affleck’s “Daredevil” (2003) and I’m also so excited to see Laurence Fishburne as Clark Kent’s boss Perry White in upcoming Superman’s “Man of Steel” (2013). However, in thiz case, I didn’t see Samuel L. Jackson became Nick Fury, instead it was Nick Fury became Samuel L. Jackson. But in the end, it’s totally acceptable. Samuel L. Jackson is able to present a precise leadership aura to his Nick Fury’s character. Once again, I have to remind you, what makes thiz movie so interesting is when these superheroes gather around and interact with each other. We can see “The Duo Chris”, Chris Evans and Chris Hemsworth who successfully demonstrate their muscular bodies, just like in “Captain America: The First Avenger” (2011) and “Thor” (2011). Thiz is how superheroes should look like! The brand new figures in thiz movie are the master archer Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) and the elegant Agent Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders who is widely known in “How I Met Your Mother” {2005-present}). The other figures who have been introduced since ”Iron Man 2” are the loyal Agent Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) and the sexy heroine Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson). Surprisingly, Scarlett Johansson has a fairly large part in thiz movie. Wait a minute, on second thought, if you have Scar Jo in tight sexy latex suit, of course you will exploit it more and more. If we’re talking about Iron Man, thiz is also one of the most interesting parts. It looks like Robert Downey Jr. have already fused into thiz Tony Stark’s character so deep, he can represent thiz self-centered character very well without any problem. But in thiz movie, the one who really becomes a scene stealer is the giant green rage monster named Hulk! Once again, it’s the Hulk’s character, not exactly Dr. Bruce Banner or Mark Ruffalo but it’s all of them in one. Some fresh and funny moments are obviously when Hulk is around. The most unfortunate thing is that they didn’t bring up the original founding team such as Ant-Man and The Wasp into the movie. In the end, I can confidently say that Marvel Comics seems to be one step ahead from its competitor DC Comics so far. Recently, thiz movie has ruled the box office chart and it turns out to be the earth’s mightiest blockbuster movie. You know what that means, right? Oh yeah, the next Avengers movie will be coming soon. Maybe next time Marvel Studios will enrich their universe with the presence of other superheroes like Quicksilver, Black Panther, Vision, Doctor Strange, She-Hulk, Wolverine, even Spider-Man. Are you ready for another one?

  7. you know what. the avengers is waaay better than the dark knight rises. while nolan was drowning the audience with pretentious 'gritty', 'ambitious' and over long drivel, whedon went back to basic and showed the joy of silver age comics. fuck dark knight rises with its way too many plot holes and bullshit 'darkness'. I was bored to tears. avengers showed me you could have a great time without having to be 'deep' all the time. all you need is great characters and story. that's it.
