Saw the Avengers last night. This movie was everything that you would expect. There are outstanding special effects. There is crazy action. But, unexpectedly, there’s actually some acting. If you like any of the superhero movies, you’ll love this movie. If, on the other hand, you’re more of the Titanic persuasion, this movie really might not be for you. Marvel has finally figured it out. They figured out how to balance the need for action with the need for some plot. This is good. This is very good. Simply sit back and enjoy.
Just a side note about 3-D – I decided to watch this movie in 3-D for no particularly good reason. I’ve watched several movies over the past couple of years in 3-D and for the most part it really has not enhanced the experience (in my opinion, Avatar, although a beautiful movie, was not worth the money). I think, for the Avengers, 3-D is nice but not essential to enjoying the movie.
I’ll have more later.
