Here are a few comments about The Avengers:
First, it’s pretty damned awesome. Everyone kicks an unholy amount of ass.
Second, the real “star” of this vehicle is the Hulk, especially Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner. The Hulk steals all battle scenes, and Ruffalo has all the best lines. I’m not even kidding here: I found myself giggling with glee every time the Hulk smashed things, and Bruce Banner got all of the best lines.
That’s really all I need to say. It is what you expect.
