I have finally watched The Avengers. I am almost ashamed to say that because I self-proclaimed myself as a hardcore movie fan, and I haven’t watched The Avengers until a month after it’s released? What a shame…

But I did enjoy every bit of it.

Nick Fury is director of S.H.I.E.L.D, an international peace keeping agency. The agency is a who’s who of Marvel Super Heroes, with Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Hawkeye and Black Widow. When global security is threatened by Loki and his cohorts, Nick Fury and his team will need all their powers to save the world from disaster.

The movie has a lot to digest, especially if you are not familiar with each of the superhero. Each one has their own characteristics and their own story lines, so I recommend that you guys do your homework first before watching this movie because it will be much more fun if you have some background knowledge to start with.

The acting is great, the techniques and effects are super cool, and it is just so humorous and refreshing. I literally couldn’t stop laughing. A lot of it is inside jokes from the previous Marvel movies, but yeah, it’s good.

Plot wise, it is quite unpredictable. I’m not really a Marvel fan (my favourite superhero is…. Ehm… Wait… Nothing comes to mind…………….. Okay, I’ll cheat and start with elimination. It’s definitely not Superman. Not Thor. Captain America is not too bad. Not Fantastic Four. Not Ironman. Not Hulk. ….oh, maybe Batman? The Dark Night is just one of the best movies in 2011), but this movie has done its best to actually make a movie that has 10 different lead actors. It’s hard to produce good movies with 10 different lead actors.

If you haven’t watched this movie, it’s a definitely must-see. I know it’s not one of the best movies in 2012 (I am anticipating The Dark Night Rises may be), but it’s seriously super entertaining. Love it.
