Oh my giddy Aunt people! I think…I think I’ve actually caught up on all the superheroey films!!! I don’t know if I should feel happy or sad about this. (Oh, wait, never mind. I haven’t watched The amazing Spiderman 2.)
I enjoyed the humour and quips of the previous avengers film so I was dearly hoping for this film to have that too. Thankfully it does and this film does better at balancing humour, action and plot.
And, wow, was the action intense! It never lets up for an instance. Those who love action will love this!
And the plot is brilliant with some major surprises! Seriously, never saw it coming, but I LOVE it!
I’m continually impressed by the film’s ability to juggle so many characters and making sure their screen time is so well balanced and weaved together without giving you a major headache.
I cannot tell you how much I love the banter between all of the characters. They had me in absolute stitches.
I also enjoyed seeing some minor characters from other marvel films. (So minor they don’t even have names and are in it for two seconds!) It’s that kind of level of detail that makes these films so well made.
I feel as if this film is setting us up for something big. It’s ushered us to the cliff edge and the next film will send us free falling. (Maybe to our deaths, but we’ll have fun while doing it.) I’m excited to see what they do next. I’ve binge watched all of these films, but I’m not sick of them at all.
To sum up, Amazing, fast paced, Action, Hilarious moments, well balanced.
Was it worth the watch? Yes
Would I re-watch? Yes
