Atom User Reviews for Marvel Studios 10th: The Avengers
Avengers 1 in IMAX 3D was absolutely mindblowing! To see Loki, Thor, Iron Man, all in my favorite movie so detailed and seemingly real... Wow!! I've had some poor 3D experiences in the past. This was NOT one of them!!
A slow start, a single star performance surrounded by indifferent acting and an onslaught of computer effects that range from seen-it-all-in-Transformers to a whole sky full of spectacular stuff in the midtown Manhattan climax.
The chaos and carnage here is just a pumped-up take on a tradition that harks back to Godzilla, and harks back, of course, to the Marvel comics from which all these heros originally sprang.
Whedon and his cohorts have managed to stir all the personalities and ingredients together so that the resulting dish, however familiar, is irresistibly tasty again.
