Movie Review: "The Avengers" (2012)

I recently saw "The Avengers" at the IMAX in 3D at the AMC theater which is in my backyard. Yes, it's that close to where I live! Anyway...I really enjoyed this movie. It is one of the best action movies I've seen in quite some time. And when I say action, I mean basically nonstop action from start to finish.

Mark Ruffalo does a good job of playing The Hulk and brings an almost serene attitude to Bruce Banner. When The Hulk emerges though, he steals the show as those scenes were the most entertaining & even comedic. And Robert Downey Jr. does a nice job playing Tony Stark/Iron Man. He is by far the funniest of the group and I liked his smart-ass, sarcastic humor. I wonder why I would like someone like that...

In general, you get to see the personalities of the superheros emerge rather than have them JUST save the world.

I am not normally a fan of the big, bombastic action movies but this one is an exception...8.0/10 stars
