The Avengers

Posted on May 6, 2012


The Avengers – It is all that and a bag of cosmic energy.  There are many fine specimens of the human body here from Chris Evans (Capt. America) to Robert Downey, Jr. (Iron Man) to Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow).  The Captain is brought back from decades of being iced down, and the Iron Man is just as cocky and confident as ever.  The Black Widow’s smoldering looks and Beyonce booty don’t keep her from taking out six or seven bad guys at one time. 

The group also includes Mark Raffalo as the Incredible Hulk, Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Clark Gregg (The New Adventures of Old Christine), Cobie Smulders (Robin on How I Met Your Mother) and btw I had no idea that was her name, and Mr. Samuel L. Jackson looking all superfly as the leader.  They have to work together as a team to fight Thor’s evil brother Loki from taking over the world.  It is action packed from beginning to end with lots of special effects and it’s laugh-out-loud funny.  Although she has little camera time,  Gwyneth Paltrow as Ms. Potts is much more alive in this than she was in the last Iron Man.


So suit up and see how the super heroes do it.  Be sure to stay through all the credits.
