To say I loved The Avengers is a bit of an understatement, but beyond that there are no words for how much I enjoyed this movie. If you've been following my blog for any length of time, you know what a Marvel fangirl I am. I'm also a big fan of Joss Whedon. So put those together, and what you get is made of win.
I was a little worried at first that it wouldn't live up to the hype, and that I was bound to be disappointed, at least in some aspect. I'm very happy to report that I was most definitely not. The only thing I had to be disappointed about is that my son had to go to the bathroom near the beginning of the movie, and I missed a few minutes. Every second that I watched was fantastic, and I wouldn't change a thing (okay, maybe a small thing, but I'll talk about that in a second).
I'm almost a little embarrassed to admit, but there were parts, particularly when they were all fighting together, that I got a little teary eyed. See, I've been reading superhero comics for years. I love the Avengers. I also love movies. I also know that sometimes movie makers get everything all wrong and make a big ball of suck. But this was pure magic. To see the stories I've been in love with for so long on the big screen just made me so happy.
Okay, rant done for now, and back to the movie, just about all I have left to say is go see it! If you're not a superhero fan, that's okay, you'll still enjoy it. There's lots of funny bits and action and good times. You'll feel like a kid again.
