The Avengers - 5 films later, it all comes down to this

Well, since it’s been hinted at since the first Ironman movie, might as well address it.

Since then, we have seen more hints and clips of the same sort throughout many other Marvel based films, like Ironman 2, The Incredible Hulk, Thor, and most recently with the Captain America movie that just got released (Good film btw). And with all of the films now done and released, there’s only one thing left to do…Avengers assemble!!

But then I what alot of the general movie goers said about it after it premiered. Nearly all of them gave the film very positive reviews. Particularly the ones that grew up with the cartoon back int he 80's like myself. So for me, this was an unusual situation. The usual critics were indifferent towards the film, but the fans loved it. Hmmm.. Well you know me, even with off or iffish reviews, if it's a film I have a feel for I will go see it for myself, regardless of critical reviews.

Well let me say that this film is a vast improvement from the 2ND Transformers. Mainly because of 2 things:
