Storyline Heading
When an unexpected enemy emerges that threatens global safety and security, Nick Fury, Director of the international peacekeeping agency known as S.H.I.E.L.D., finds himself in need of a team to pull the world back from the brink of disaster. Spanning the globe, a daring recruitment effort begins.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Adventure Sci-Fi - After five films of build-up, this is a big action-adventure uniting Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, and the Hulk into one big Marvel superhero team. Fans of any of the individual characters should be pleased as not one hero dominates the screen time though Edward Norton fans will be disappointed that he's been recast in the Hulk role by Mark Ruffalo. Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johansson, and Jeremy Renner, who have had much more secondary roles in previous Marvel films, have more screen time this time around. While there is the usual superhero battles and mayhem, it is largely bloodless and language is at a fair minimum, making this suitable for older children.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Very Good The Avengers will likely not be nominated for a Best Picture Oscar but it mayl be one of the most important movies to arrive in theaters during 2012.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good 'The Avengers' is done well by Joss Whedon, with style and energy. It provides its fans with exactly what they desire.

USA Today Full Review
Good While it's slow getting started, The Avengers is a splashy superhero mash-up that should please breathless fanboys.

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 212moviegoers:
As expected (hoped), "The Avengers" is a GREAT MOVIE! Rarely do I see moviegoer reviews this high across all age and gender groups. If you have even a small interest in "The Avengers" GO SEE IT! You won't be disappointed. Heck, even the finicky critics rated it high, at least for them.
