I am not a movie theater gal. People bug me but if there is a big, blockbuster movie to be seen…then the only place to see it is in the theater and let me tell you, I was not disappointed by this one! First off, we went to the ArcLight which has reserved seating, superior sound and awesome picture quality. We skipped the 3D option. Since two of us in the family have the added luxury of wearing corrective lenses, having another set of lenses on top of our faces is just too much lens.
Anyway, The Avengers was fabulous! It has all the action you’ll want, not much blood and a lot of laughs. It was VERY funny. The Girl is eight and does not like anything with violence of any kind and she was cheering when Scarlett’s character, Black Widow, kicked butt. I was a film major, so the special effects matter to me more than the average Joe but I thought the CGI was awesome. It was very well done. All of the characters were strong but Robert Downey, Jr. was probably my fave. So many funny interactions with the other characters.
Oh, and if you see it, be sure to watch all of the credits and stay for the “after” credits as there is a little bonus at the very, very end of the credits. In other words, do not leave until the screen goes dark.
