Let me just say, I’ve never considered myself much of the comic book type. In fact, I don’t remember the last comic book I’ve read. Though, I will say – I do consider a good film from time to time based on a good comic. And, let me just say – this film was definitely worth it.
Before I go into the review, I will tell you this movie is not one of those films that you need to have a good background knowledge on the story and its characters. Though, it does help – there are a few parts in the film that connect and make more sense knowing the full story.
Going into the movie, I did not read many reviews on it. Personally, I wanted to see it for myself and not ruin the overall experience. So, yes – I went into the film cold turkey. And, let me just say – it was pure action from the very beginning.
Without having much background knowledge, there were a few characters that were introduced that were new to me. It was interesting learning more about them and their story. Though, I wish they went into more depth with the characters. But, I guess it was a bit hard to do with the storyline and all.
For those who have seen the “Avenger” type films, I will say – it’s a special treat to see all of the characters come together. I like how they showed the different personality types of each character and surprisingly not everyone got along. I especially enjoyed the appearance of “The Incredible Hulk” (played by Mark Ruffalo).
Overall, the movie had a great storyline with a lot of good action. It was neat to see all of these different action heroes come together and work towards the same goal. At times, I felt myself cheering and rooting them on – the action scenes were great!
If you’re in the mood for a good action movie based on a comic, I highly recommend this one.
Happy movie watching!
(Note: For those who saw the film, I’d be interested in hearing your thoughts on it especially if you’ve seen the other “Avenger” type films. Thanks for reading!)
