Holy Hulk Smash (to steal a priceless reaction from a good friend, @streetg33kgirl on twitter, follow her!) this movie was phenomenal! The Avengers comes storming into theaters with the full force of the summer blockbuster that everyone knew it would be; what everyone doubted though was how well Joss Whedon would be able to deliver a big budget action adventure on this scale (sadly me included), needless to say I’ve never been happier to be wrong! What no-one considered is that any idiot like McG can make explosions look pretty with enough computers and money, it’s the story and characters that should be perfected and only then fill in with action to supplement. Instead of just an action popcorn movie with some drama and some comedy, the Avengers delivers action in its drama, comedy in its action, and yes at times drama in its comedy. We get a completely satisfying movie whose sum is indeed greater than the parts of it’s whole.
