Avengers assemble on screen at last

Nick Fremgen, Staff Reporter

Marvel Comics’ new movie The Avengers, directed by Joss Whedon, was released on Friday, May 4th , and it brought in $80.5 million dollars on opening day alone. In the first weekend it had $200.3 million dollar revenue in America, breaking world records for largest revenue for opening weekend.

The Avengers movie is full of suspense and action. There was action throughout the movie and especially at the end, never letting the movie get dull. Along with that the graphics, were amazing. Everything in the movie looked like it was real and not CGI. This made the movie very enjoyable. The Avengers even had some comedy making this one very good movie.

Even without the great graphics the movie still would have been enjoyable because of its plot. The movie’s plot was good and added suspense. The movie’s storyline is about Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, Hulk, Hawkeye, and Black Widow as they try to find Loki and stop him before he opens a portal to another world that allows the enemies armies to invade the earth, while they try to work together as a team.  It is a good plot with some twists throughout keeping your attention.

The acting was superb and all of the actors fit their parts perfectly, really bringing the movie to life. The actor who played Loki (Tom Hiddleston) really played him well. His character was completely believable, it really did seem like he was a self centered, power hungry, ego maniacal villain.  Robert Downey Jr., who played Iron Man, was as good as ever. He played Tony Stark’s snide personality perfectly with his habit of never taking anything seriously and his hilarious jokes. I also felt that the actor of Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) really portrayed the quiet yet very deadly character that is the Black Widow. Chris Evans, who played Captain America, did a good job also, reprising his role from Captain America:  The First Avenger.  He was always trying to be the best he could be and trying to keep the team together.  Newcomer Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) was also good, but he did not appear much throughout the movie.  Despite his short amount of screen time, he is the only completely new person in the movie and I do think he did a good job.

Overall I greatly enjoyed this movie and I would want to see it again.
