Avengers Movie YouTube Review
By James Rickman III, Director www.iHumanMobile.com
Wow, I loved the new Marvel comics Avengers movie. It had all the intrigue, action, comedy and romance, anyone could handle packed into a neatly written storyline. The relationship play between Robert Downey, Jr. (Stark, Iron Man) and Gwyneth Paltrow (Pepper Pots) was a delight. Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow) and Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye) worked nicely as the two shadowy agents battled physically and mentally to survive. Samuel L. Jackson delivered as the commanding, Nick Fury, a military central intelligence director that uses every asset to achieve the mission. Joss Whedon, the movie director of The Avengers, wrote and produced this masterpiece which has earned over $210 million so far at the box office.
The support cast with Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Chris Evans (Captain America), Mark Ruffalo (Hulk), Cobie Smulders (agent Maria Hill) and Greg Clark (agent Coulson) is excellent. The special effects in The Avengers are top notch with detailed action scenes and character development. The movie does a great job of using sound to draw your attention to key elements. It felt like I had opened up a huge comic book and stepped inside the action scenes as I ate my popcorn sitting with the Avenger characters. Kids will love this movie. I expect parents will be scrambling soon to buy all sorts of Avengers toys and games at the retail stores.
The movie had great balance. The pace of the movie evolved seamlessly from the start, it presented a life threatening villain, Loki (brother of Thor) played by Tom Hiddleston. Loki (Tom Hiddleston) reminded me of Alan Rickman’s many complex evil characters like in the Sheriff of Nottingham, Harry Potter and Die Hard.
Every great action movie has a clearly defined problem and/or mystery to solve. The dialog in the Avengers was distinct with carefully chosen words that both kids and adults could understand. The actors spoke clearly giving space for the audience to digest the words.
The Avengers movie presents a dual theme of defeating an alien attack on earth while also questioning the ability of several unlikely characters to work together to save the world. Ultimately, the Avengers are selfless and make sacrifices for others to achieve the victory. I give The Avengers movie a FIVE STAR rating – it was perfect.
