Marvel's The Avengers is a superhero masterpiece! The action is fantastic! The heroism is marvelous! You'll stand up and cheer throughout the entire movie!
Nick Fury is director of S.H.I.E.L.D, an international peace keeping agency. The agency is a who's who of Marvel Super Heroes, with Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Hawkeye and Black Widow. When global security is threatened by Loki and his cohorts, Nick Fury and his team will need all their powers to save the world from disaster.
To get the story of "The Avengers", you need to watch "Thor" and "Captain America: The First Avenger" to know the conflict of the story. Both really good movies. Once you watch those, you have more excitement on what will be the conclusion in "The Avengers". I like how the moral of this film is the same as "X-Men: The Last Stand". To get it done, you work together. But, of course "X3" was suffering for its lack of adaptation. "The Avengers" gives a more powerful punch to it, though. All of the characters gets their continuation, including Bruce Banner. So sad that Edward Norton couldn't join the team. He was an awesome hulk.
The acting was perfect! Of course, Robert D. jr. cannot be replaced as the Iron Man. He fits the original character's personality so well. Smart and a joker. Mark Ruffalo was a surprisingly good Hulk. He makes himself seem like he's just a regular guy with no powers, but he describes the Hulk as another guy. I loved that. As for the rest, they were wonderful and well fitted for their roll. Not to mention a perfect screenplay for some scenes.
One of the reasons that make this film so heroic was the directing! Joss Whedon (Serenity) makes his second directed film a record-breaking success. He makes the film so wonderful in its heroism. We all know that 360 shot scene with the assembled heroes at the end of the trailer. That became one of my favorite parts for the film's direction and its soundtrack. Hopefully Whedon will return for "The Avengers' sequel".
Now, what mostly made this film so heroic was Alan Silvestri's score! Recently, Alan kind of chose a new theme for his music. His latest soundtracks sound nowhere near different. When I heard about him doing "Captain America" and "The Avengers" I knew he was going to dominate it, because his latest work mostly matches the heroic theme. I mean listen to his latest scores and then go back to listen to "The Abyss". Extreme changes. In "Captain America" it sounded the same as his recent scores, but he gave the hero a theme, which made it awesome! But then came "The Avengers"! He creates the theme music that will forever be memorable in my head. That theme will play in many scenes in the movie and you'll love its appropriate timing!
