Joss Whedon helms this superhero action thriller based on the Marvel comic characters. Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and the international S.H.I.E.L.D. agency must act swiftly to form The Avengers, a team of ultimate superhero defenders, when Earth comes under attack from Loki (Tom Hiddleston) and his multi-faceted army. This all-action supergroup comprises Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Captain America (Chris Evans), The Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) and The Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) - but will their combined powers be sufficient to overcome the formidable Loki and save the Earth from the clutches of evil?
The Avengers Assembled begins with a bang and builds from there, a thrill ride peppered with Whedon's trademark self-aware humor. It's fun to watch all these egos clash, especially Downey, who just owns the Tony Stark role. It's a really great starting point movie to the 4 movie saga. Happy to recommend this movie with a 8 out of 10
