This week's reviewed movie is:
The Avengers

I liked the way The Avengers used their humor throughout the story by just staying this side of spoofing; like letting Robert Downey, Jr. spotlight some really funny laughs while others play the straight man for him.

The film has the right balance and lets everyone show off their skills, making us care for them.

Even if you’re not a comic book fan, you should come away saying, WOW! That's as good as it gets -- they did it right.

When the world is about to be attacked by aliens from another dimension, who are you going to call?

Why, Nick Fury and the agents from S.H.I.E.L.D., because it's time to enact The Avengers Initiative: a ragtag team of superheroes.

There's nothing like seeing talented actors portraying your favorite heroes.

This film is an absolute delight for Marvel comic book fans and absolutely mind-numbing for newbies.

The best film of the year (so far!).

Super cool, super fun!

Hulk happy!

This movie satisfies and completes the comic book fan's dreams of having six major Marvel superheroes come together in one place.

Before the heroes band together to take on the bad guys, they have to learn to work with others with similar abilities.

The Avengers is all about action.

In the explosive climax, a massive fight breaks out in which half of New York City is wiped out.

In the end, while Iron Man and the Incredible Hulk are up in the sky smashing flying monsters, Captain America and the other Avengers are saving people in various situations of danger on the ground.

In conclusion, the superheroes prevail.
