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.
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.

PROFANITY: A few miscellaneous profanities. SEX/NUDITY: None. VIOLENCE: Lots of fights involving weapons and superpowers. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Some alcohol. ACTION: Fights, chases, destruction. COMEDY: Comic banter.
OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
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.
