Director: Joss Whedon
Starring: Robert Downey, Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson
Studio: Paramount Pictures
Rated: PG-13 (For intense sequences of sci-fi violence and action throughout, and a mild drug reference)
Though the action is non-stop and goes on for a long time, unlike last summers “Transformers: Dark of the Moon” I never found myself bored with “The Avengers.” Maybe if Transformers had characters with more personality like this movie does, I might have enjoyed that film a lot more. It just goes to show that any concept, regardless how stupid, can be fun if made by the right people. “The Avengers” is not the greatest superhero film ever, but it just might be one of the more fun ones I've seen in my years. Though with the promise of a sequel in a few years, hopefully the film makers will resist the urge to make it longer than two hours, because a little Hulk certainly goes a long way.
Parents, there is a lot of bloodless violence and minor language. No sexual content. Recommended for ages 13 and up.
