I have been so tuckered out with all of these superhero movies over the last couple of years. They have a pretty set demographic: people who like large explosions, repetitive overconfident villains, and bright multicolored costumes. And The Avengers definitely held to form.
The Avengers was a conglomeration of all the previous years superhero movies: Captain America, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man, and Thor. They form a super-group to protect the world from Loki, the villain Thor fought in his last movie. This time Loki is trying to steal a powerful artifact from earth and at the same time take over the entire human population.
This is a very typical action movie where the good guys overcome some sort of adversity, band together, and successfully rid the world from evil. There are large explosions, a funny line here and there, and a maiden in distress. It was an alright movie, but am I the only one getting tired of these repetitive superhero movies? It was also way too long for my taste.
The Avengers gets a C- from me, and it’s rated PG-13 for intense sequences of sci-fi violence and action throughout, and a mild drug reference.
