I honestly don't see what all the hype is about. It wasn't a bad movie but it's not nearly as great as people say it was. The aliens were cheesy (even for a sci-fi flick) and too many convenient things happened. I liked Spiderman more than this. And The Dark Knight Rises was easily better.

The light, amusing bits cannot overcome the grinding, hectic emptiness, the bloated cynicism that is less a shortcoming of this particular film than a feature of the genre. Full Review

San Francisco Chronicle
There are moments of genuine pathos, genuine humor, genuine surprise. As much as the film adheres to the strictures of the standard comic-book movie, it also pops with a knowing, loving, Whedon-world jokiness that keeps everything barreling along. Full Review

The bad news is that if you haven't seen "Thor," "Captain America" and "Iron Man 2" - that's six hours and three minutes of homework - The Avengers won't make sense. The good news is if you're a human under the age of 45, you probably already have. Full Review
Ann Hornaday
Washington Post
The Avengers has been executed with all the reverence the super-fans demand, as well as the winking, self-referential humor that has made it palatable for filmgoers disinclined to take a bunch of grown men dressed in spangles and spandex so very seriously. Full Review
Bill Goodykoontz
Arizona Republic
The real hero here is Joss Whedon, who directs the film with a fanboy's enthusiasm and a thorough knowledge of the genre. Full Review
