Marvel’s Avengers opens today and you won’t be disappointed. I took my 10-year-old son to preview it and we both enjoyed the film. It took me a while to get used to the new “Hulk” (Edward Norton was replaced by Mark Ruffalo) but I felt like the entire cast came together well.
Love Iron Man. Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) is hysterical in the movie and cuts up the fast-paced action with his quick wit and sarcasm. And he’s easy on the eyes.
Yes – I said it.
Without spoiling the movie, there is one casualty that made me so sad. Hated to see it happen. Wish it hadn’t! You’ll know what I mean.
Scarlett Johansson’s performance as The Black Widow was only so-so for me. But maybe it was because I was so familiar with the other heroes from their movies I just didn’t feel a connection with her.
At the screening there were people of all ages and it didn’t seem to matter how old they were or whether they were male or female – everyone liked the film. Cheering and laughter throughout and lots of clapping at the end. I’d say it was a success and Jackson, my son, is ready to see it again and will probably go this weekend!
Be sure to stay past the credits. There’s a brief scene (of course) teasing what’s to come next. It’s not over, ya’ll!
