I'll keep it short and sweet. This movie delivers on all of its promise. The action and story are great. There is a bit of humor that breaks up the heavy action and intensity. If you are a fan of comics and the other "Avengers" films you love this movie. If you have never read a comic book and have never seen the films that led up to this movie, but enjoy quality entertaining films with strong stories and amazing visuals you'll still walk away with a huge smile on your face. I honestly can't remember the last time I had this much fun at the movies!

Best use of 3-D since Hugo. Great sound and action. Some great unexpected laughs and the audience actually applauded at the end. Good sign your at a fun movie.

Excellent cast reprise, phenomenal screenplay and director. I would assume that the movie stands on its own regardless of format (IMAX, Real-3D, standard); IMAX 3D was fun but unnecessary. The best comic book I ever watched in real time! What have you been waiting for??? See it!

I do not take film "critics" reviews very seriously when I read or watch them. When all my friends, however, rave about a film, I take that with more than a grain of salt.
From the very beginning, I could tell that THIS Marvel movie was going to be different from the rest. The flawless mix of humor and drama, encompassing the beloved elements of the Marvel universe that came before, created a story that drew me in and didn't let go until the house lights came up.
Although the rest of the world has probably already seen the movie, I will give no spoilers here. Suffice it to say that this ensemble cast, captained by the exemplary writing and directing of Joss Whedon, rises above mere performance and achieves true on-screen contemporary art.
