The Avengers- an ensemble cast of superheroes unite to save the world and what follows is entertainment, entertainment and pure entertainment. Along the way there is self-discovery, cheesy humour and some smashing visuals.
Robert Downey Jr returns as Iron Man after his Sherlock Holmes franchise and he does a neat job as a self-obsessed superhero. Mark Ruffalo plays Hulk. The job of spicing up the proceeding after the initial build rests on him and he does it with elan.
The rest of the cast includes Chris Evans as Captain America, Chris Hemsworth as Thor,Scarlet Johansson as Black Widow and Jeremy Renner as Hawk Eye and each of them play their parts well to add colour to the proceedings.
Kudos to Director Josh Wedhon and team for giving us a the right mix of wit, action and special effects. Go for it for its entertainment value. The first summer hollywood blockbuster exceeds expectations.
