The Avengers - Absolute Marvel

Movies come and go, but some stay longer than the others. Some are categorized as the genres they belong to and some genres are defined by movies. The Avengers is one such movie which will remain in your mind for a long time. If you are bored of cricket, or don't have anything to do, or wanna catch a movie, then surely you won't regret watching The Avengers, And you can catch this movie even without any reason. There's so much to say but so less words to explain. The Avengers is not your average superhero movie.
If you have watched their individual films in which these superheroes have appeared, you are gonna love this one too, because it gives you more of each superhero. The action sequences pack a powerful punch, the thrill that this movie gives you is amazing, high adrenaline rush, great line-up of stars, quirkiness, wittiness, glamour - its got it all. Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, Scarlett Johansson - six superstars as six superheroes in one movie; each with similar screen time. They surely know how to deliver.
Not to forget Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders and Tom Hiddleston who also live up to their characters.
Some may still feel disconnected due to violence or iron man's unnecessary humour but frankly it is spell-binding in its execution, leaves you wanting for more. Director Joss Whedon - a screenwriter for many films including Toy Story (nominated for Academy Award Best Writing (Original Screenplay), didn't win it though).
3D technology has gone for a toss today but if it was just like the old days this movie surely has got scenes that will come right in front of your eyes. Still, I would say go watch it in 3D. Scarlett Johansson - she can do a good Russian accent.
In the end, all I wanna say is that amazing action makes up for the clich├ęd storyline of protecting the earth from creatures from other planets. Nonetheless, kids and adults are going to enjoy it; maybe for different reasons. What an experience! I had watching it.

[Movies have been a family affair for me, every time it's a different experience but a good one and a one which remains forever. This time was no less. Had a quality family time watching it with the entire family.]
