The Ultimate Avengers DVD Reviews
We review the comic adventures of The Ultimates in the Ultimate Avengers DVD movie!
Marvel's most powerful superhero team, The Avengers, first appeared in The Ultimates comic books - but now you can catch these costumed heroes battling against super-powered bad guys in their latest cartoon action flicks. Check out Kidzworld's reviews of The Ultimate Avengers and The Ultimate Avengers 2 DVDs!
The Ultimate Avengers DVD - From Comic Book to Small Screen
Based on The Ultimates comics, this movie has Nick Fury thaw out Captain America and put him in charge of a superhero team with Thor, Hulk, Giant Man, Wasp and Iron Man on board to put a heavy-duty smackdown on the forces of evil. The best part about The Ultimate Avengers movie is that you don't need a PhD in comics to know what's going on! If you've read the comic though, the movie feels pretty stupid, especially Thor who goes from a political radical and environmentalist in the comic, to a beer-swilling goof in the movie.

The Ultimate Avengers 2 DVD - Rise of the Panther
Just when you thought The Avengers had sorted out their teamwork problems and battled all the aliens there were to battle, a new evil arises that requires these superheroes' attention. Deep in the African jungles, the nation of Wakanda is under attack by extra-terrestrial enemies! Prince T'Challa is ready to stand up for his people, but realizes he won't be able to do it alone - so he calls in Captain America and gang to lend a hand. This second DVD is pack with action, but not a really great story. Much of what you'll find in Rise of the Panther is what you saw in the first Ultimate Avengers DVD. There are some cool extras like a What Avenger Are You? interactive game, gag reel and previews of upcoming Marvel animated movies.
