For spoilers and the story of the movie, scroll down. However, if you are plainly interested in knowing whether or not you should check this one out, stay above the spoiler line!
Now I know what’s the point of my life, to have seen:
|I'm not sure if this is fan made or not, but I like it far more than the original|
so I'm going to use this one!
Mark Ruffalo as Hulk. Again, I loved the Erica Bana version, although it had more faults than upsides... but that said Mark made a fantastic Bruce Banner. He was just like in the cartoons, a bit insecure, geeky, at the same time ready to pop at any second. I would like to see a Hulk movie with Mark Ruffalo, but the Hulk movies never do well, so I’d rather stick with him just in The Avengers, I don’t want another recast! Also I missed Betty Ross, but I'm sure they will be brought in soon enough, after all according to my favorite story line, they work together at S.H.I.E.L.D. to make up a new super soldier serum that Banner uses on himself to control the Hulk. Also, I don't think that either Jennifer Connelly or Liv Tyler would've made a good match with Mark, so I hope they will cast someone new for him, with whom he has great chemistry.
Chris Hemsworth as Thor. Got to say, I expected more from him. Unfortunately even though the Thor movie was magnificent, when put up against all these big actors, I fear that Chris is just not up to their level yet. I find that he was too action movie like, while the others seemed more down to earth, but other than that he was quite good eye candy throughout the whole movie. And I loved his conflicts with Loki and he even got a couple of hilarious one liners.
Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye. He literally took my breath away. He was an excellent archer, he had really good chemistry with the cast, not to mention Black Widow and his action scenes where marvelous. His actual outfit in the comics is a bit foolish, so they changed it for the movie, but I wanted a bit more of purple in it, so bad call on making him completely black! However, I loved that he was already presented to us in Thor, so we knew that he works for Fury, so seeing him at S.H.I.E.L.D. wasn't a surprise. They took care of his character, and if they ever make a movie about him, I hope they throw in Black Widow as well!
Clark Gregg as Agent Phil Coulson did not disappoint once again, and I love it that he was the device that brought all the movies together (he can also be heard in the new Ultimate Spider-Man cartoon, where he is a regular character!). Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury. Let’s be honest, it’s Samuel L. Jackson, what do you want me say? Finally Cobie Smulders as Agent Maria Hill. I don’t want to give out any spoilers (yet), so let me just say that I wanted a lot more of her, but what she gave us was magnificient as well!
If you like any of these actors, check it out, you won’t be disappointed. If you like comic adaptations, watch it, this is the mother lode! The king of all the comic book adaptations! Or if you just want to see a good action movie, this will not disappoint! The 3D is OK, however once again I’ve found it completely unneccessary to be honest. So if you don’t mind wearing those horrible goggles, then you should be just fine in the 3D theatre. BUT DO CHECK IT OUT!!!!
S.H.I.E.L.D. wants to use it to build weapons while Loki uses it as a portal between universes. Either way, it’s a no-no. When the Captain was found in the ice, the cube was found with him and was brought to the surface, where it was stolen by Loki. But while he tried to escape the magnificent Agent Maria Hill almost stopped him (that was a really badass and awesome scene!). After this occurred, Tony Stark was called in, Captain Rogers too and Dr. Bruce Banner was asked to help as an expert on gamma radiation. The team seems to be ready when Natasha Romanoff arrives, but she seems to be worried about Clay Barton who has been compromised and turned to Loki’s side. When Loki is apprehended Thor appears out of nowhere, there is a line that Loki said, that their father must have used all his energy to send him to his precious earth… and that was a bit silly, the Thor movie ended with this great wondering of how will he ever come back down, and this problem was solved pretty quickly and to add foolishly. But his encounter with Iron Man and Captain America was beyond the best scene in the movie!
MAJOR SPOILER! Final scene after a part of the credit is rolled: we see the man (The Other played by Alexis Denisof) who has provided Loki an army talking to someone, and he tells him that planet Earth does not wish to be ruled after all. That their inhabitants will fight everyone and everything, and trying to conquer them would be like fighting Death itself. To this we see who he was talking to Thanos, the only Marvel character who has indeed fought Death itself. The final scene: Thanos smiles into the camera.
Final thoughts? YOU ARE STILL HERE?? GO SEE THE MOVIE!!!!
|That's me in the theatre! :D Thank you Avengers!|
