With Loki preparing to take over the Earth and make all humans his slaves it’s up to S.H.I.E.L.D. To assemble The Avengers to bring Loki down and save Earth before it’s too late.

Short description of this movie I know but that is basically the jist of it.
Now I LOVED this movie. I’ve always been a superhero fan and I’ve always been a Joss Whedon fan. The two combined = awesomeness!
I think everyone did a fantastic job on this film. From acting to editing to stunts to cinematography.
The whole thing was kind of epic.

I would expect nothing less from Joss Whedon. As if you couldn’t tell but I am a HUGE Buffy fan.

Performance wise I thought everybody did a pretty good job.
Robert Downey Jr. is hilariously awesome as Tony Stark/Iron Man. Seriously the dude is just freaking cool!
Chris Hemsworth as Thor is perfect casting. His interactions with Iron Man crack me up.
Chris Evans as Steve Rogers/Captain America is heaven. Great fish out of water.
I love Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner/The Hulk. I found him so vulnerable and sweet. Really touching.
Scarlett Johansson and Jeremy Renner as Black Widow and Hawkeye were really cool. You just want to see those crazy kids get together already.
Tom Hiddleston is great as Loki. Geez half way through the movie I started rooting for him to win. Good acting.
All the other cast members were great. I can’t wait to see them expand this into more sequels. You have do many characters to play with and tell stories of. I would love to see a movie about the S.H.I.E.L.D. team. More Cobie and Samuel. Sad to see Clark Gregg go.
Loved seeing 80’s actor Harry Dean Stanton pop in for a cameo. As well as Stan Lee.
So many more actors in this film. So funny, so action packed, so sweet. Not hard to see why it’s taken in so much money. It is long but it’s worth it.
