It's not a cure to cancer, but is a perfect translation of comic book to screen.
An hour and a half of mindless and virtually non-stop cg violence.
A great mu-ha-ha! villain, Loki, and plenty of noble superheros to go round.

Saw this movie with my class.

LOVE this movie!! It does have quite a bit of violence and a tiny bit of language, but is otherwise very entertaining and really hilarious. Iron Man is really funny. Loki and Hawkeye are my favorite characters. I love the part where Loki tells Hulk he is a god, and Hulk calls him "puny god". REALLY GOOD!!!

The Avengers is a movie that is mostly full of action and is also great for the whole family to watch. Join the avengers on an exciting adventure to save the world. All of your favourite superheroes are in this movie. The movie consists of the most famous marvel heroes such as Captain America, Thor, Hulk, Hawkeye, and Black Widow as they team up together to save the world. This movie takes you on awesome adventures making you sit at the tip of your seat. This movie’s rating is PG-13. It is rated as the best superhero movie of all time. I felt excited from watching this movie, and I hope that you will feel the same as well. The Hulk, to me, is the best part of the movie because it is so cool how he transforms from human to creature. This movie is not suitable for children under 5 because there is a lot of frightening scenes. The marvel comics spoiled some parts of the movie so you know that part was going to happen. The setting takes place mostly at the Stark Tower, and the place where they all stayed in. This movie is also related to the movie After Earth. In that movie there are more frightening scenes too. Robert Downey Jr. and Samuel L. Jackson did amazing job acting in this movie and so did the rest of the actors and actresses. Robert Downey Jr. ( Iron Man) ,Samuel L. Jackson ( Nick Fury), Scarlett Johansson( Black Widow), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye), Chris Hemsworth ( Thor), Mark Ruffalo ( Hulk), and Chris Evans ( Captain America), are the little exciting pieces that make this movie even more spectacular. I can’t wait until they make an Avengers 2, if they do.

Really enjoyed this, a good treat when there is nothing else to view. I'd say I am a fan of sarchasm and this film provided a good amount of such humor. I'm also glad I'd recently viewed Thor & Thor: The Dark World prior to this, which provided a reference to Loki and the family issues back in Asgard.

One of the best (if not the best) superhero films I've seen in a very long time. An instant classic. I'd watched the saga out of sequence and when I got tired of the events that took place in this one being referenced in so many other Marvel films, I decided it was time to actually get in line (yes two years later, I still had to join a hold's list to watch this) and give it a whirl. Well, it was worth the wait.

As Loki's coming out of his cell, Thor sees him and, yelling, hurls himself at Loki. Loki stiffens and Thor goes right through him. As the door automatically closes, Loki says "Are you ever NOT going to fall for that?"
