I hate going into the whole synopsis of the movie so, guess what…I’m not going to. It’s a superhero movie. It has action. Suspense. Great one-liners. And some superheros.
I was invited to the screening of The Avengers and eagerly accepted. I’m a sucker for action movies. Especially when there are superheros involved.
Sure, it was sort of predictable. Sure, there was some hokey parts. There were some unanswered questions that you think about after the movie ends. That’s to be expected. I mean, what’s a movie without those elements, right? Seems like it’s par for the Hollywood course.
Personally, I thought Scarlett Johansson’s part, the Black Widow, was pointless. But, I guess the producers needed a woman to give the guy viewers someone to drool over. Although, I have never seen her drool factor but I’m not a guy, maybe that’s why.
I saw The Avengers in 3D. I’m thinking that because of there being so much action, maybe regular viewing might be better BUT they did a REALLY good job with the 3D effects. I ducked and moved out of the way a few times.
The Avengers brings back Loki, who is AWESOME…and rather handsome…who is trying to lead an army from somewhere in the nether-regions of outer-space to come and wipe out the planet so that he can rule it. And, it’s our Avengers; Thor, Iron Man, Hawkeye, The Hulk, Captain America and his Mighty Shield and whatsherface…
Yes, it’s getting bombed by the critics. But, this is how I see it.
I’m am Jane Doegeneralpublic. I’m NOT watching a movie with a critical eye. I’m not a reviewer. I’m the person that pays the money and wants to be entertained.
I have 3 options.
A. I’m not entertained to various degrees.
B. I’m eh, whatever to varying degrees.
C. I’m entertained. Again…to varying degrees.
I was C. BIG TIME C.
Again, that’s me. A representative of the Jane Doegeneralpublic. Who really, really enjoyed the movie. For all it’s faults that the critics are finding. For all it’s too-much-edness.
I’m going to see it again. On Saturday. With my husband who was very jealous that he couldn’t go with me.
The critics need to lighten up. Sit back, stop analyzing. Be entertained.
The Avengers…now THAT’S entertainment.
In theaters now.
No clue of the rating but I’d probably take my 8 year old.
OOOOHHH…and P.S. We have issues suddenly. Not major ones. BUT…Fantastic Four? Yeah, they fought along with The Avengers. And Capt. America actor dude also was the Flame-On dude. How are they gonna pull that one off?
