THE AVENGERS

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - DVDS -

Af­ter much an­tic­i­pa­tion from fan­boys and a slew of pre­quels to pre­pare the way, Mar­vel’s

ex­ploded this year and the re­sults were vis­ually elec­tri­fy­ing. The story about a posse of su­per­heroes ( Thor, Iron Man, Cap­tain Amer­ica, Hulk, Hawk­eye, Black Widow) duk­ing it out with in­ter­galac­tic bad­dies has its mo­ments, mostly in the ac­tion and hu­mour de­part­ments, but it’s hardly ground­break­ing stuff as a whole. Whe­don’s mon­u­men­tal achieve­ment of giv­ing all the heroes some­thing to do should be praised though, as should the end re­sult which, purely as an ad­ven­ture spec­ta­cle, gets a lot right.
