"It was kray kray!!!"

This is a movie that has crazy hype and deserves it. This is a movie if ever there was one. The film industry only produces one of these every couple of years.  Now there are tons of nerds out there who will love or hate this movie for a thousand reasons. And I’m one of them. ;-)

Reasons to hate this movie: Captain America is worthless in this movie. That sad part about having awesome powers like invincibility like Thor or invincibility like the Hulk, or having invincible body armor like Iron man, … is you end up out shining the Captain. Captain America has almost nothing to contribute in this movie. He does very little and has very little effect. Now this is hard to take considering the Captain America movie was by far the best of the prequels to The Avengers.

Reasons to love this movie: Besides the fact that three of the super hero avengers are invincible and kick ass, this movie has lots of fun and excitement. They battle Loci  an immortal who has an alien army attacking earth as their first step in taking over the universe.

Whedon directs the hell out of this movie likes crazy. I was impressed with almost everything aesthetically as well as the art direction. I was particularly impressed with the character of the hulk played by Mark Ruffalo. Ruffalo plays up the dark side of the Hulk and give a great performance. He ended up being my favorite character.  Having said that they have yet to make a Hulk movie starring Mark Ruffalo and so I await that one…

Top Five rating. Sometimes you just have to go see those blockbuster movies. This one is worth the ticket price.
