THR gives us our first movie review of THE AVENGERSThe Hollywood Reporter has released a review of The Avengers and I have to say, it pleases me to see the entity of THR give the movie the praise it does.  It only better servers to whet my appetite for seeing the movie.

It’s nice to see THR touch on how there was a vocal entity that wasn’t sure about Joss Whedon taking the helm of The Avengers, being that his only other big screen project was Serenity.  But if you’ve seen Serenity, you knew that Whedon could easily tackle this project.  And it seems he has fulfilled this one reviewers expectations.

The review touches on how after the film, some characters go their own way in their own sequels and that there’s a teaser about who the next villain will be for our group of heroes in the sequel to this ensemble movie.

On handling each character from the ensemble, Todd McCarthy says

“get enough but not too much of each of them and they all get multiple scenes to themselves to shine.”

He touches on the conflict amongst our heroes.

“Whedon and his cohorts have managed to stir all the personalities and ingredients together so that the resulting dish, however familiar, is irresistibly tasty again.”

Overall, the reviewer has nothing but praise for the movie.

Marvel’s The Avengers, with Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Tom Hiddleston, Clark Gregg, Cobie Smulders, Stellan Skarsgard, Samuel L. Jackson, Gwyneth Paltrow, Paul Bettany…

The review gives out more movie story details than we’ve already been privy too, and I’m avoiding putting them out here, but if you must, you can check out the link below for the reviewers additional descriptions from the movie he’s seen.  Or, more details that could spoil your entertainment value, unless you’re OK with that.
