THE AVENGERS ****½
USA: Joss Whedon, 2012
Kudos to Joss Whedon. THE AVENGERS proved to be as resoundingly entertaining and epic as a HUGE blockbuster encompassing an ensemble cast could be. Surprisingly but undoubtedly my favourite film of 2012 so far.
The most pleasing aspect of the film on a personal level was the handling of The Hulk. Not only does he get to play more than a cameo, he finally gets to be a hero.
Enough talk... Go see it!
The Count's Verdict: Marvel bring one of the swiftest (4 or 5 years) film franchises ever to a near perfect climax leaving the legacy of a rich and entertaining cinematic universe which doesn't destroy the heritage of the comics.
