I think it’s clear that basically everyone in the country loves “Marvel’s The Avengers.” The film is breaking records internationally as well as domestically, and, according to Rotten Tomatoes, has created a new precedent for comic book movies.
According to Rotten Tomatoes, “The Avengers” is at an extremely high 93% fresh rating, and the audience (those who were resourceful enough to pre-order their tickets since the film sold out at many venues) has given it a whopping 96%. The critical consensus is, according to the site, “With a script that never forgets its heroes’ humanity and no shortage of superpowered set pieces, The Avengers lives up to its hype — and raises the bar for Marvel at the movies.”
Here’s what the critics individually thought:
“A spectacle in the grandest sense of the word”–Laremy Legel, Film.com
“Ultimately, it all comes back to Whedon: His clear vision for each character and how they might be profitably intermingled; his unexpected knack for action choreography; his funny, tender, immaculately constructed script.”–Christopher Orr, The Atlantic
“The performances are so well-pitched in The Avengers, meshing with such vividness and ease, that it’s tempting to overpraise the good but not great movie that surrounds them.”–Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
