Marvel Cinematic Universe Movie Review Phase 1

Movie Review – Avengers, The (2012)

What a blast! The Avengers, the great team-up of Marvel heroes, is a rocket ride of a film, helmed with humor and precision by Joss Whedon. The action is enormous, the characters work wonderfully well together (the big selling point for me) and the films grandiosity never outstrips the comic-book origins it’s gleaned from. This is a magnificent film event, and will keep you gasping and laughing in equal amounts!

Movie Review – Captain America: The First Avenger

Rousing adventure has everything working in its favor – a top cast, an adventurous script, and the production values one only finds with tentpole studio productions, and it all works a treat. While the film manages to be tonally different than previous Marvel hero films, such as Thor and Iron Man, this last solo outing prior to 2012’s The Avengers is a wonderfully realized precursor to the massive throw-down coming our way. Great fun in every sense.
