Apr 27, 2012 10:44
If you're excited about watching the Avengers, you should be as it's one of the best things to hit the big-screen in 2012. The combination of the star-studded cast and well-written script means there will be plenty to admire and root for.
Besides the reported $200 million-plus budget spent on the film, the fact that they're bringing in so many well-loved comic book characters puts a lot of pressure for director Joss Whedon to please eager fans. And even if you aren't that familiar with the likes of Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man 2, Thor, and Captain America, you'll still be in for a pretty wild ride.
Below is a quick synopsis:
The Avengers brings together the likes of Bruce Banner a.k.a. the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo),
God of thunder Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Captain America (Chris Evans) and Tony Stark a.k.a. Ironman (Robert Downey Jr). They must work together with S.H.I.E.L.D. members led by Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) and Agent Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) to save mankind from being ruled by Thor's brother - the spurned Norse God Loki (Tom Hiddleston) - who has stolen a powerful ancient weapon.
It's no big surprise that the heroes will save the day, but fans will no doubt enjoy watching them overcome their struggles and triumph. They've even managed to add in a few familiar characters from previous Marvel films like
Ironman's girlfriend Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow) and Thor's Professor
Andrews (Stellan Skarsgard).
Besides the script, we really have to hand to the guys responsible for the spectacular special-effects especially towards the end during the final battle sequence which will leave viewers in awe:
Overall, The Avengers will no doubt bring plenty of entertainment to both comic-book hard-liners and action fans alike. And we wouldn't be surprised if many of them came back to watch it again on the big screen.
Catch the Avengers showing in TGV cinemas starting from April 27, 2012.
