Raise your hand if you have been looking forward to seeing The Avengers?
Well, tonight is the night! Opening nationwide in theaters our favorite comic book heroes come together to save the world.
I gotta tell you, I was able to go and see a screening of the movie earlier this week and when I left the theater I was totally jazzed. One of my pet peeves when it comes to action flicks is all the slow parts that they seem to have. The Avengers didn’t have a slow part, I was enthralled throughout the entire movie.
Now to be honest, I do have a bit of a crush on Robert Downey, JR and since his character Tony Stark is in the film that probably led me to being so enthralled, but regardless it was a great action film. Quick story, I took my eldest daughter to the screening with me and she knows my love of Robert, (yes, we are on a first name basis.) As we were walking out she was giggling to herself, when I asked what was so funny she said, “You should have seen your face with Tony Stark came on screen, you were totally glowing and had the biggest grin on your face!”
I also like the inclusion of characters that haven’t had their own movie like The Hawk and Black Widow. The movie did a great job giving back story on their characters.
Now for my fellow RDJ fans, there is plenty of Iron Man in the movie. 🙂
Oh, one more thing, be prepared to laugh, A LOT! Seriously, I don’t know how many times I would be taken completely off guard by a humorous part of the movie. It was the perfect mix of action and comedy.
So hurry and grab your tickets and head to the theater. By Monday all your friends are going to be talking about it and you don’t want to be left out of the loop!
