The Avengers Assembled
My regular Thursday night gaming buddies skipped the game last night to take a trip to Cinewolrd to watch The Avengers Assembled (As the Avengers movie is called here in teh UK). Without wanting to give too much away- what a cracking movie it was! It's long, as just under 2 1/2 hoursm but it was well worth it. The casting is amazing, even the new characters, Hulk, Hawkeye and Black Widow, are well cast, while most of the others have been in he previous movies.
Dialogue is snappy, funny in parts and poinient in others. The characters are all well thought out and consistent with the comics and with the other movies. The action is high octane (although I thought that it sagged a little in the middle) and the special effects are every bit as good as you would expect.
With such a great all star cast and some of the best superhero characters around all assembled in one movie, it was hard to pick a favourite, but I think that Hulk gets to steel the show, with the best laughs and some of the coolest fight scenes.
For anyone who is a fan of the genre (and I am betting you are) this is an unmissable movie!
