Movie Review: ‘Avengers’ (Four Star ****)

The pre release hype associated with the ‘Avengers’ promised us that it was one of those once-in-a-lifetime movies which every cine goer should watch. It could have killed the prospects of an average movie even if it was good. But the Avengers not only generates massive pre release buzz but it also delivers on all counts. The experience of watching it on big screen transports you to another world.  The storyline of such superhero movies are often far from reality and Ávengers’ is no exception.

Nick Fury of S.H.I.E.L.D bringing together a team of superheroes, eventually called The Avengers, in order to save the earth from Loki, the brother of Thor, and his alien army. The screenplay is wonderful and it packs very powerful scenes which leave tremendous impact on the audience.

Technically the movie is one of the finest till date . The director could have lost his grip over the film as he had finest resources at his disposal both in terms of technical and acting department but director Joss whedon has done justice to the film by maintaining a delicate balance between the script and the super heros.

Actors like Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man, amazing), Marc Ruffalo (The Incredible Hulk), Chris Evans (Captain America), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye), and Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow) shine with their performances and hold the attention of average viewer with their mannerisms and other antics.

The director has given ample screen space to all his superstars to show their mettle and skill on screen and all the actors including the villain Tom Hiddleston (Loki) have successfully managed to give credible performances.

Right now the movie is open in select Asian countries. The movie goers in the United States will have to wait till May 04 when it will be released everywhere else including North America.
