|The Avengers impresses...|
I don't want to steal too much of my own thunder for the "official" 1LR review, but I can say that this movie made the fanboys happy. It had to be structured just right to introduce, like, 20 very unique concepts quickly but also to not bore the superfans.
Like all of the Avengers movie leading up to this one, it was FUNNY. You can definitely see Joss Whedon's fingerprints all over it.
Bravo, Avengers! Marvel successfully pulled off a feat equal to that of the simultaneous filming of the Lord of the Rings trilogy - they made a superhero film universe that works.
Simply put - GO SEE THE AVENGERS!
