Movie Reviews

  • you don't have to sport a propeller beanie to enjoy The Avengers
    3.5 of 4 by Peter Howell [Toronto Star ]
  • what really makes the difference in "The Avengers" is the emphasis on character as the film's storytelling core
    4 of 5 by Kenneth Turan [Los Angeles Times ]
  • what passes for a plot is simple enough, even if frequent references to the characters' back stories may leave you feeling that you missed a prescreening plot briefing
    by Joe Morgenstern [Wall Street Journal ]
  • what makes this anticipated film so absorbing is how the heroes' internal battles are often more pronounced than their external ones
    3.5 of 4 by Jon Niccum [Kansas City Star ]
  • there are similarly overdone combat sequences
    2 of 5 by A.O. Scott [New York Times ]
  • the plot is deftly arranged so that each of these guys has to embrace or reject a particular facet of their characters in order to get the job done
    3.5 of 5 by Glenn Kenny [MSN Movies ]
  • the film is good enough to keep all the Marvel Comics crazed audiences out there deliriously happy while keeping the rest of us earthbound types in moderate thralldom
    Review rate : B by Peter Rainer [Christian Science Monitor ]
  • the eyes are often delighted, the senses are consistently engaged/assaulted and the funny bone is occasionally tickled, but, obviously, our emotions emerge wholly unscathed
    2 of 4 by Rick Groen [Globe and Mail ]
  • the banter has zip, the effects are fun, the climactic battle is decently spectacular, and if the 3-D is mostly expendable, there are a few scenes where it adds a nice kick
    by Bob Mondello [NPR ]
  • makes the evil side of the equation seem suitably overwhelming
    Review rate : A- by Keith Phipps [AV Club ]
  • its 3-D-converted visuals look mighty fine, and it racks up a goodly amount of photogenic property damage as the story progresses
    4 of 4 by Amy Biancolli [San Francisco Chronicle ]
  • it's two-plus hours of visual brawn, unexpected heartbeats and welcome humor
    3.5 of 4 by Lisa Kennedy [Denver Post ]
  • it might more accurately be described as the opening-night cocktail party at a corporate superhero retreat
    by Dana Stevens [Slate ]
  • here, the feeble 9/11 allusions and generic paranoid conspiracies go nowhere
    2.5 of 4 by Peter Keough [Boston Phoenix ]
  • beneath the garish costumes and day-saving deeds, modern movie superheroes tend to be a pretty ornery and dysfunctional lot
    Review rate : B+ by Chris Vognar [Dallas Morning News ]
  • 3 of 4 Reviewed by Ann Hornaday [Washington Post ]
