Marvel Studios delivers the ultimate comic-book film, which ties together such characters as Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Captain America (Chris Evans), The Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), and Thor (Chris Hemsworth) for a big-screen franchise team-up like no other. Taking center stage this time is Nick Fury (played once again by the note-perfect Samuel L. Jackson), leader of the peacekeeping agency known as S.H.I.E.L.D. Fury, along with former Russian spy Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), recruits a super team to combat Thor's ever-deceptive brother Loki (Tom Hiddleston) after he brainwashes ace archer Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) while stealing a cosmic cube from an underground base. Thus the heroes must learn to work together alongside outlaw scientist Bruce Banner (Ruffalo), who can track down the artifact's gamma signals when he's not hulking out into a giant green monster. Show runner Joss Whedon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly) adapted and helmed the script by Zak Penn. ~ Jeremy Wheeler, Rovi

One of the BEST PICTURES of the YEAR. This movie has all the making of an Oscar. 5 movies rounded into one. Marvel Studios delivers one of the greatest Super-Hero movies of all times. Seen in 3D and I am going to see the movie in the movie house again, for that reason, because it is that GOOD. Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth made movies we've seen before and play in this extravaganza of a film. When the HULK, IRON MAN, THOR and CAPTAIN AMERICA teamed up as S.H.I.E.L.D. to smash the enemy LOKI, Thor's brother, from an invasion of
Aliens that Loki conspires with and a lot of action you will enjoy. A must see and a must buy.
Very entertaining, great story if you can suspend disbelief in an over-the-top comic book world catastrophe, well acted. Minor faults are that Iron Man becomes too altruistic, The Hulk becomes too manageable, and Nick Fury is inexplicably in charge.
Nice mix of action and comedy... not a thought-provoking film, but that is not what it is supposed to be! Definitely watch each character's background movie before you see this (Iron Man 1 & 2, Thor, Capt. America and The Incredible Hulk). Having further character development in the individual movies gave the Director some more freedom with the action here, and you did not feel like you were missing out on much with the characters (excluding Hawkeye and Black Widow).
Just have fun watching it... that's what it is for.
