What I Thought of The Avengers

On Saturday opening weekend I took the kids to see The Avengers in IMAX 3D. We went to the 10:00 a.m. showing so the tickets were $12.00 each. We got to the AMC theater at 9:15 a.m. so I thought it would be empty ,well there were about 50 people already in line. We got lucky because  they were opening a second line so we squeezed on over. I had my older kids 20 & 19 go straight to the theater to get good seats in the middle of course. I had to buy food from the concession stand you can't watch a movie and not have popcorn. Well of course that's not enough so I had to buy chicken tenders, hot dogs, nachos, soda and of course candy ( a nice healthy breakfast ). The food came out more expensive than the movie. Anyway back to the movie after watching all the previews we were all pumped for The Avengers to start. I have to say from beginning to end it did not disappoint. Iron Man was sarcastic and witty. Thor was mythical and beautiful. The Hulk was more realistic in this movie like he was actually a person with super powers than in The Incredible Hulk movie.Captain America was very much the gentleman but still could kick a**. I was worried that they were going to make The Black Widow just a sidekick, pretty arm candy but she was just as tough if not tougher then the guys.Hawkeye was good when he was a good guy and even better when he was a bad one.Last but not least was Nick Fury who brings the whole movie together. The action was great and the special effects did not make it look "fake".The movie went by fast but in a good way. I love how Stan Lee always makes a cameo in all the movies. I for one can't wait for the next Marvel Comics movie. Hopefully they will be making an Avengers 2 and not wait so long this time.
