Avengers Assemble has answered the age old question of what's best, quantity or quality, and the answer is both! Not only does it combine most of the biggest action stars playing most of the biggest superheroes but it is also very funny and has a great plot.
I don't know much about superheroes, I only saw Iron Man and Thor and have never read a single comic, but you don't have to be a superhero nerd to enjoy the first Avengers movie.
The thing that really surprised me about Avengers was how funny it was. It was hysterical! It has to be the most quotable movie of the year. The audience were crying with laughter at the moment when a farmer came to ask Mark Ruffalo if he was an alien after seeing him fall from the sky. Most of the comedy comes from the fantastic chemistry between the heroes. Sometimes their conversations were a little cheesy. But it was funny so I'll let the cheesiness fly.
The action scenes were brilliant. Some people might complain that they were too long because the whole film seemed to be a nonstop action scene but this is what you came to see. Amazing fighting and special effects are the corner stone of any good superhero movie.
But aside from the feminist issues, this is a great movie and I would definitely recommend it - even to non-supernerds like me! So go down to your local multiplex and Marvel at this super movie!
