Kidzworld went to the Hollywood premiere to review this long-awaited superhero adventure The Avengers.

By: Lynn Barker

When Thor’s adopted brother Loki plans to take over and rule Earth, the peacekeeping agency S.H.I.E.L.D. rounds up the hottest super-hero dream team ever to stop him but can Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Hawkeye and Black Widow cooperate long enough to get the job done?

The Threat

International peacekeepers are in charge of experimenting on an alien cosmic energy cube called the Tesseract but something goes terribly wrong and the device opens a “door” to evil forces that threaten the entire planet. It’s up to S.H.I.E.L.D. boss Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) to assemble a team of “Avengers” to fight the threat.

The Reluctant Team

Used to working solo, these new Avengers quibble amongst themselves. Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) usually the ultimate loner, has to team up to track the radiation the cube gives off… since gamma rays turned him into Hulk in the first place. Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) and Captain America (Chris Evans) are total opposites. As Tony Stark, Iron Man is about seat-of-the-pants adventure and “Cap” is all safe, old-school and by-the-book. Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) have a “past” to deal with and Thor (Chris Hemsworth) has to fight his own bro Loki (Tom Hiddleston).  All does not run smoothly.

The Battles

Loki and evil crew test their powers overseas and the Avengers fight back while learning that S.H.I.E. L. D. hasn’t been totally honest with them. The guys (and gal) are either reluctantly cooperating or scuffling with each other until, finally, the team becomes more solid.

A final huge battle is fought in New York when the cube ends up at the top of Tony Stark’s tall, new tower building. Loki’s army comes through its portal and it takes all the Avengers and their special, unique powers to down the bad guys and shut the portal to their world forever. (Hint: Black Widow is very instrumental and Iron Man makes a big sacrifice).

Wrapping Up:

Comic book fans have been waiting for this one a long time and it totally delivers. Fans of the other Marvel hero movies will also be completely entertained as well as those who don’t even know who these heroes are.  Cool director Joss Whedon manages to give each hero moments to be “human” and, with witty, funny dialogue and a few quiet and tender scenes, makes us care and love each and every one!  All heroes get their moments in the sun.

This film is not just big explosions and cool effects, combat and costumes, it has heart. In my Hollywood premiere screening, a moment when all the Avengers finally stand united in a circle got cheers! Laughs rocked the famous Chinese Theater as Hulk tossed the bad guy around like a rag doll and Robert Downy Jr. threw out one hilarious, witty comment after another. The 3-D is pretty cool and not overused but the film would still be great without it. 

For accomplishing everything most fans hoped for and more. For making the heroes “real” and relatable while making us laugh, cry and “marvel” at what is on screen, The Avengers, in theaters May 4th gets five stars.

The Avengers  Movie Rating: 5
