Last weekend I managed a little escape from Baby Buck as his grandma offered to babysit. If that’s the case, all I can say is Avengers Assemble!
Although the Avengers was smashing box office records, I went in expecting little. It didn’t help that I didn’t catch all the build up movies namely Captain America and Thor. I was thoroughly entertained! This is how summer blockbusters are supposed to be made. Terrific ensemble cast that worked brilliantly together. Robert Downey Jr. and the Hulk do steal the show, but the other superheroes all played worthy roles. Chris Evans does a great turn as the patriotic first Avenger and Chris Hemsworth does his best Shakespeare as the Assgardian demi-god Thor.
Joss Whedon deserves all the credit in the world for helping to pen this action packed, fun filled script while also deftly managing egos and screen time. Since they already hauled in one billion dollars with a capital B, you can be sure we’ll be seeing Avengers 2 very soon. Excelsior!
