Nathan is a film critic and aspiring author with a true passion for the film industry who hopes his writings will help launch his career.

Robert Downey Jr returns as Iron Man,Chris Evans as Captain America, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Samuel L Jackson as Nick Fury,

After an otherworldly being threatens Earth with destruction, Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) assembles The Avengers in the hopes they can get along long enough to save the planet. The movies that we have seen so far in the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) has led to this moment. Loki, brother of Thor, made a deal with Thanos the Mad Titan. Loki promised to deliver the Tesseract to Thanos and in return, Loki would be allowed to rule Earth. If you don't remember, the Tesseract was the weapon Hydra found and used to make weapons of their own back in Captain America: The First Avenger. SHIELD found it when they were searching for Cap and are now testing it out to see what exactly it can do. Soon, they realize that there's more to it than they bargained for.

The directing was magnificent. Joss Whedon crafted an excellent film, inserting plenty of action and humor to entertain everyone. I appreciated Whedon's style before, but after I learned why he was so into superheroes, I appreciated his style that much more.

The acting wasn't spectacular, but it wasn't bad either. The dialogue felt like it was written for kids. I don't want to say dumbed down, but it did give off that impression. There weren't a lot of cheesy moments, which i was grateful for. All the heroes we have seen in earlier films return, except for Edward Norton, who was replaced with Mark Ruffalo. Ruffalo did a far superior job as Bruce Banner/Hulk compared to Edward Norton and I am honestly glad the switch took place. The one thing that bothered me about the film was the scene where the heroes are arguing among themselves. It was a long scene and accomplished nothing. I was glad when the airship was attacked. It gave them something better to do!

The visuals and effects were outstanding. Finally, a Hulk the fans can be proud of! The Chitauri were amazingly well done, as was the final battle in general. The budget had to have been enormous for the film to be so well done visually and to have such high profile actors/actresses in it.

In conclusion, the film is near perfect. There are only a few slightly annoying elements and that's perfectly fine. I'd rather there be minor problems than major ones. If you love superheroes, you'll love this film. If you don't know anything about them, give this film a try. Who knows, you might get converted to the Nerdy Side.
