92% Tomatometer – Review on Rotten Tomatoes
‘With a script that never forgets its heroes’ humanity and no shortage of superpowered set pieces, The Avengers lives up to its hype — and raises the bar for Marvel at the movies.’
Review by Peter Bradshaw – The Guardian, Thursday 3 May 2012
‘Joss Whedon’s ensemble comic-book outing has a sparkling script and a tremendous villain…….
It’s an enjoyably absurd and absurdly enjoyable extravaganza, both delirious and surrealist.’
