    One thing that really REALLY disappointed me was the end when The Hulk yells at Iron Man to wake up. And I'll tell you why.
    In the comics there is a panel where Tony's heart stops, and Thor brings the lightning and shocks him back to life. Basically acts as a defibrillator.
    So, during their fight in the beginning; when we see that Thor's lightning super charges Tony to 400% power; I was REALLY hoping to see this scene play out. When they were all gathered around Tony's unconscious body after Hulk catches him I was thinking "This is it. They're pulling the panel from the comic. Thor's going to bring him back!"
    Then suddenly "ROAR"... Really?
    The Hulk simply screams at him and he comes back to life? Disappointed.
    This set up this amazing scene in the beginning only to have it wasted on The Hulk being a screaming moron. Also, if your heart stops (which we can assume it did as his suit has a life support system and wouldn't cause him to pass out from the lack of oxygen, or even from the G's he's pulling falling to earth (likely only 2-3 by the way)) being screamed at isn't going to make it start up again.

    Loki brought them all together to tear them apart quicker. If he had tried to keep them separate all it would've meant is that he would've had slightly more time. Admittedly, Loki likely would've won in this scenario however Loki didn't intend his actual plan to bring them closer as it did. That WAS a massive fuckup, and Loki basically sealed his own doom. But in his original plan he'd bring them together, tear them apart and while separated they would be powerless to stop the Chitauri. They could only win as a team, on their own they didn't stand a chance. That was the plan.

    I disagree that this film is "mindless" or "dumb." People do not give Joss Whedon enough credit for his ability to craft dialogue and character development. The focus is on how these individuals learn to work together and coexist despite their numerous differences. There are running themes of sentiment, the idea that freedom suffocates peace due to humanity's pride, and running from our pasts instead of looking to the future. The story is simple, but it's not done without any intelligence either.
    I especially love the argument between Tony and Steve, and how Cap claims that Stark wasn't capable of being selfless for the sake of the greater good. Then in the big fight, it's Tony who saves the day by directing the nuclear missile through the portal at the Chitauri ship, well aware that he may not make it out alive but goes through with it anyway. That's character development. Take away the colorful costumes and the spectacle action sequences and there's some very underappreciated writing in there imo.

  • smittywerbenyeagermanjensen

    I like Mark Ruffalo as the Hulk. He really makes him feel like a regular guy. I think that is what makes it shocking that he does get really angry and become the Hulk. It makes a very good contrast.

    I'm a simple a sense. I see a crossover, I get hyped, I watch it. Who would've thought that one day a crossover would not only be one the highest grossing films of all time, but also set a standard for future cinematic universes to take place? All I have to say is, "Thank you Marvel for bringing us The Avengers."

  • CeltycSparrow
    CeltycSparrow Year ago

    The Avengers was actually one of the first movies (besides Batman of course) that really got me to liking superhero movies. And the hilarious irony is, I actually liked and respected the Avengers not because they were these perfect, ridiculously hot, badass superheroes, but because they were willing to admit they had flaws and fears and they had to overcome those flaws in order to unite as a team and defeat the bad guys. Like when we meet Black Widow (also one of my favorite characters) she starts out as this strong, gorgeous badass fighter, but we later learn she has made mistakes in her past and she has a really painful backstory and she has to come to terms with that. And Bruce Banner is actually scared of his alter ego and he's had to really suppress his emotions because he DOESN'T want to be that guy but then he has to accept that part of himself in order to save the world . And the whole dynamic between Iron Man and Cap just cracks me is the noble warrior with an honor-code and the other is this snarky narcissistic billionaire and they are both trying to be in control. And then Thor is literally a god and he is trying to come to terms with the fact that his brother is the villain and trying to understand the humans.

    But The Dark Knight, Logan and Mad Max: Fury Road - despite tying-in with other films are regarded as absolute classics for their complete lack of BS pop references and serious tone and incredible directing and performances
    there will always be franchise series
    But Avengers will be remembered in history of films like Lord of the Rings in terms of effort and build up
    But Lord of the Rings will be viewed as real art all with the entire trilogy
    the fore mentioned movies above will be viewed as Classics not just hits
    and movies like Empire Strikes Back and even 1989 Batman and even the original Mad Max and Mad Max: Road Warrior
    will be viewed as the risk takers and art shining through quality
    The Avengers is brilliant but it'll be dated and unrelatable in the future
    Road Warrior is dated in terms of effects but the drama and scenario still rings true
    Hell even the emotions and dialogue and themes in the personality of the first Mad Max are the same kind of timeless appeal and art that keeps audiences loving A Clockwork Orange despite being dated years later
    My personal favourite movie of all time is the Lon Chaney silent movie of 1925 - The Phantom of the Opera
    Historical value AND artistic content

    On the other, I feel like this movie should have been in one of your bugger reviews. Especially since you've taken to doing it with the DC films. And a movie like the Avengers NOT getting to be on Nostalgia Critic while a movie like Suicide Squad is?
    Idk, just kinda seems wrong to me.
    Still, glad to see you like the movie!

  • ARC the Clarinet Master

    Really? You're listing that misogynistic _Ghostbusters_ remake as an example of an "expanded universe"? And to think, you're the same guy who gave _Inside Out_ , a film with *original female characters* , a positive review - during the exact same Disneycember, nonetheless! Surely you would be deploring that GB remake as a huge step backwards for women in Hollywood, right?

  • Wyvernblue
    Wyvernblue Year ago +1

    As much as I love the MCU, I'm really afraid that it's going to end horribly. They keep adding in more characters for fan service, like Doctor Strange, and soon Adam Warlock, that there's no way they can fit them all into a climax.

  • IceFire9yt
    IceFire9yt Year ago

    The fact that they set up every here, the villain, and the plot device (the tesseract) in previous movies is part of why this movie works so well. When making ensemble movies, its very easy to get bogged down in exposition, introducing character and the plot (batman v. superman is the best example of this going wrong, but I think Age of Ultron falls victim to it too).
    Marvel made sure that they had basically everything set up before hand. They just hit the ground running- giving the audience what they really wanted to see- the characters playing off each other and the action.

    "The Avengers" is....SO AWESOME!!! Okay, okay, I'm being such a overhype commenter to keep saying this, but I fucking love "The Avengers." Its Marvel's "Goldfinger" epic film. Sure, it's stupid, sure it's one-liners dumb summer flick, sure it's a dumb summer blockbuster film for most popcorn viewers, Marvel fanboys, and to all these teens alike. But it's a perfect superhero crossover film with all star cast, a big premise, fantastic action scenes, characters interact one another, and they've so much after 5 films until they make into a big screen. Downey Jr, Evans, Hemsworth, Johansson, Renner, Jackson, Smulders, and Ruffalo (good choice as the new MCU character) were excellent. The villain is over the top and Hiddleston was so good. Whedon's direction is impressive with tons of action, quote to quote lines, and some fun memorable moments. Such effort this film and yay, I rewatch many times and this Marvel's best film of all time. Let's enjoy watching Avengers film!
    Yup Justice League, we're waiting?

    Not only was this movie important to the comic book genre of film, but this movie was probably one of the most important films to come out in the last decade. For years before this, movies were just fine but they weren't amazing or spectacular. Much like Toy Story, this movie changed films forever. Now filmmakers have to prove themselves that they can be just as great as The Avengers or else they'll probably fail

    I think this movies success is what sealed DC's fate, because DC didn't really have anything other than The Dark Knight series that was that good and all of a sudden Marvel was kicking down the door and dragging everyone to the theaters. DC felt that they had to catch up fast so they cut straight to the character mashup without taking time with development movies like Marvel did.

      The marvel equivalent, guardians of the galaxy, had a smaller cast and was easier to identify. Mostly cause one is a giant tree that only say 3 words and the other is a racoon with machine guns. Hard not to get the gist to identify which these are
