The Avengers is surprisingly funny. If it wasn’t a comic, an action movie, an intense ride of entertainment, I would venture at calling it a comedy. Each of these heroes brings wit to the table in the most appropriate places. Simply these are my ten reasons for watching The Avengers Friday May 4 opening night or shortly thereafter.
Iron Man – Tony Stark played by Robert Downy Junior doesn’t play well with others but he’s still a genius. Watch and see if he can learn to work together and think of anyone other than himself in order to save the world from an unbeatable army lead by Loki
Thor – Can an alien work with petty humans with alter egos? I mean he’s a god that controls lightening and has as much strength as The Incredible Hulk plus he’s something special to look at right? Can he fight his brother that he still loves and wishes would come home? How far is he willing to go to save the world he’s supposed to be protecting?
The Black Widow – I’ve never seen a woman so good at interrogation. Taking verbal punches like they hurt her deeply, and they may have affected her but once she got the information she needed she looked like she could care less. Plus she could fight like she had four hands and four legs. Amazing moves, one of the times she bounced off the floor I thought that looked like it hurt.
Hawkeye: I never thought this would happen but he was my favorite character in The Avengers movie. I was rooting for him from the beginning of the movie and loved watching him in action. He’s the Legolas of the Avengers a never misses shot.
The Incredible Hulk in charge of his emotions or always angry you decide but his part to play in this movie needed both him and his alter ego. Together they had to find the enemy and strike them out, but can he work together with others and control the huge green ticking time bomb inside of him? You’ll find out how this green buy works watching The Avengers.
Captain America he’s a leader and he’s honest and a good ole boy in everything he does. He follows the Law and I love that he has such heart and devotion to doing right. But he’s not afraid to challenge someone in the way even when it’s one of the team players.
Maria Hill – she’s absolutely awesome and kicks major but herself. She’s not your average secretary she’s just as much in the action as everyone else. Car chases, perfect shot shooting and keeping Nick Fury almost in-line are her specialties.
Nick Fury – Nick Fury knows exactly what information The Avengers need to know to motivate them to do their jobs. He knew exactly what he was doing from day one even when he was hiding information from them. He’s an evil mastermind working for the right team.
Loki – Tom Hiddleston is quite charming as the bad guy and at times you almost feel bad for his predicament, except for the fact that he just loves to torture people. But, someone has to stand in the way of the heroes or there is no story and Loki does an excellent job pulling you in.
Family – The Avengers struggle to be nice to each other but were open enough to each other to tell each other what they really thought of one another. Sometimes family is so close that we hurt each other like this too, but when something really terrible happens we combine forces to “Avenge” that wrong or hurt.
It was really hard limiting my reasons for seeing the movie to only 10. I could have gone after things like humor, action, edge of your seat, excitement, all reasons come to the same conclusion, The Avengers was an amazing movie that you have to see.
