Review:

The Avengers (2012) is about Science Fiction, Super Humans, Heroism Action and AdventureOur world needs a hero.  As you can see, the crime rate nowadays increases. Will be heroes can only exist in this fictional films? I think everyone can be a hero in their own little way. I think that’s the value that Marvel wants to present to its audience.

Story

The story is focused with the retrieval of the “Tesseract”, Blue Light Potential energy.  It was stolen by Loki as he has this evil plan to subjugate planet earth. Our heroes, The Avengers, were assigned to this mission to capture Loki and retrieve the “Tesseract” by Nick Fury.

This is what I really love about Science Fiction Films, the well-funded Cinematography that you can see. I love the chase in this movie. I felt the adrenaline when everybody is on their combat.  The production really made comics a reality in this film.

Comments and Suggestions

I have watched this movie in real cinema last 2012 with my aunt and cousin. I know Marvel is really good. I also like X-Men so it’s somewhat the same and decided to watch this film. I like Action, Adventure and Science Fiction Films because it gives me the thrill and the adrenaline. It’s always futuristic too.

I suddenly remembered I had this Korean student before. He’s Matthew Lee. He likes watching movies. He likes drawing the caricatures of The Avengers in my white board. It’s so cute!

So, what’s my say with this movie? I love the thrill. First, I don’t understand how come Loki just suddenly appeared there but when I got to rewatch this movie. I understand it now. It’s because of the Tesseract (blue energy).

Chris Hemsworth (Loki) is a very effective as a villain because he’s annoying. On the other hand, Thor is this Hammer God. I know the back story of Thor because I watched the movie somewhere but still I find him ignorant and not that really strong. He’s too dependent with that hammer.  I am aware of their Sibling Rivalry.

Nick Fury assembled the Team Avengers with his choice. I like the team up. There’s this clashing stones at first but in the end they develop a strong team work and friendship which is really cool. I love the unexpected friendship of Tony Stark and Dr. Bruce Banner. When Tony Stark started to talk about Physics and anything science related stuffs (for genius only), Dr. Bruce Banner can only understand him.  “Can you please speak English?”, said Steve Rogers /Captain America.

Captain America is my favorite character because he’s manly and he has the heart of a real leader. Though, he has this difficult moments with Tony Stark because their completely the opposites. What else? Incredible Hulk fighting humor is really the best! Haha… Anger management Please!

The target audience for this movie is most probably the kids and the youth. That’s my expectation with Marvel. I think they did a great job with this film so I decided to wait for the second film of Avengers.

Rating: 9 out of 10

      1. Iron Man and Black Widow yeah you are right. I only like Capt. America from this movie series. Loki is the best villain! Hawkeye only his bow and arrows LOL.
        I have never liked Thor. He is a weak god that can’t solve anything in a godly manner. He seems like a normal human and rarely uses thunder too 😮

        I will try 🙂
