THE AVENGERS: A FANTASTIC MOVIE
The Avengers does a great job. Stunts, story, performances, humor…the film has it all and just in the exact right proportion. Humor is in abundance, but not in any way does it make the film like a “spoof”.
The banter between the superheroes is as interesting as their fight with the aliens. Joss Whedon, Director-Screenplay writer, leaves you emotionally invested in the movie. You feel for the characters, which makes the film a roller coaster ride you don’t want to miss out on! The Avengers, it’s a feel-good fun film.
The Avengers’ build-up is a little slow as the initial formation of the super-hero force takes time, but once that’s done; the film grips you with its fast-paced action, sleek one-liners, engaging banter and endearing humor throughout. When you are not clapping after every stunt scene, you are awed by the greatness and mystique of the mighty superheroes like a child!
The story starts when Thor’s adopted brother Loki (Tom Hiddleston) causes havoc on earth to rule the human race. Loki has left Asgard and now wants to refashion earth as his kingdom and humans as his slaves. Loki intends to steal a cube called the Teseract, which would help him and other vicious aliens to wage a war against humans. It is now upto the superheroes to get together and save the Earth.
But will the ‘eccentric freaks’ comprising of tech genius, good guy but cocky Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr), Russian spy Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), the man with anger management issues Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), righteous & man of morals Captain America (Chris Evans), master archer Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) and hammer-wielding god Thor (Chris Hemsworth) put aside their apprehensions, ego, controversial past to fight alongside each other and against the aliens?
Robert Downey Jr’s magnetic personality, sarcasm, sharp wit and distinct portrayal of Iron Man manage to hold the film together. As Tony Stark, RDJ infuses that much needed spark and life into the movie with his superb one-liners.
Go watch it and relive your childhood !!
