The stamp of [Whedon’s] personality is practically unquestionable: There’s a certain indirectness in many special-effects shots, a respect for capturing motion in an unbroken take… In an industry that systematically alienates everything that doesn’t contribute to “impressive effects” and “an easy-to-understand, primitive story,” what Whedon brings to the table is practically a miracle in and of itself.

The Avengers is sleek, colorful, and often funny, but this veils a deliberate allegiance to an ideology that not only devalues non-American life, it can’t even bring itself to show combat death. It’s as far removed from reality as the nameless casualties of US drone strikes are from our field of vision.

A great deal of the credit for [its high quality] has to go to Joss Whedon, the writer-director. Whedon is already a fascinating case of contemporary transmedia authorship; how does The Avengers fit into his work? Certainly family dynamics have been at the heart of all of his television work, just as they are in The Avengers. He has spoken of this as his chief interest in making it: "These people shouldn’t be in the same room, let alone on the same team — and that is the definition of family.

  • Blue K, Custodian of the Cinema's rating of the film The Avengers

    How any adult without attention deficit disorder and with a triple digit IQ can enjoy this is beyond me.

  • Nicholas Gregory's rating of the film The Avengers

    All plot/exposition or cookie-cutter action. It never has a conflict outside of its hilariously nonthreatening villain, Loki, a most irritating and cartoonish threat. The Avengers depends on having seen the other side series for any kind of emotional baggage. But a film should work in its arcs as a standalone always. It's senseless having to sit through 20+ films to get them. Novice fan fiction, not cinema.

  • Max Slobodin's rating of the film The Avengers

    superhero film crowdpleaser that crashes into the halls of high art. perhaps better than any film of recent vintage, this infectious concoction elucidates the breathless thrill of running home and reading a comic book fresh from the sweet shoppe. alive as yet-to-dry ink, the smudges you see on your hands are but the remnants of a rollicking time at the cinema. a splendid time is guaranteed for all....

  • Zachary W's rating of the film The Avengers

    Of course it took Joss Whedon to realize on film the fact that superheroes are freaks with outsized personalities in tights, while maintaining a humorous seriousness. All of these things have been done before, but they come together nicely here. Whedon even manages to develop character in the midst of the apocalyptic battle finale. Oh, and the Buffy callbacks were fun too.

  • HKFanatic's rating of the film The Avengers

    I've been reading Marvel Comics since I was in elementary school, but if I'm honest this movie left me strangely underwhelmed. The script was so overweighed with exposition and any moment that could have built tension was defused by a Whedon-esque quip. I want a popcorn movie to make me feel something - I don't even care if it's blatantly manipulative about it - but this was more like watching a video game cutscene.

  • mpho3's rating of the film The Avengers

    B for blah. Maybe i expected more because it's Whedon, who has turned so many other genres on their heads. i get that not everything has to be cerebral and blockbuster season begins now, but Avengers did nothing for me. I didn't hate it, but I'm surprised I didn't start drooling on myself after awhile. A few laughs and some decent acting vs. waaaaay too many things blowing up in the last 45 min. for me makes blah.

  • WhatsUpWill's rating of the film The Avengers

    By the end it felt like a bunch of five year old boys throwing their action figures together while making explosion sounds with their lips. Loki is not a great antagonist, his motives are cliched, his scenes are weak, and I never quite believed him. The protagonists did more posing than struggling. We could of done with a lot less exposition as well. The humor was great though.

  • Trevor Tillman's rating of the film The Avengers

    I went in with cautiously optimistic expectations after revisiting Marvel Studios' films this week, which is a mixed bag at best. This movie does drag on with the exposition and the buildup, and it has plenty of cheese, but the payoff. . . . the last hour of this movie grabbed me and didn't let go. And I found myself getting a little misty eyed during the third act just by the pure joy and excitement of it all.
