I just watched the Premiere Screening of 
courtesy of Maybank a few days ago. :D 
Directed By Joss Whedon 

Starring Robert Downey Jr, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, Scarlett Johansson, Samuel L. Jackson 


Continuing the epic big-screen adventures started in "Iron Man," "The Incredible Hulk," "Iron Man 2," "Thor" and "Captain America: The First Avenger," "Marvel's The Avengers" is the superhero team up of a lifetime. When an unexpected enemy emerges that threatens global safety and security, Nick Fury, Director of the international peacekeeping agency known as SHIELD, finds himself in need of a team to pull the world back from the brink of disaster. Spanning the globe, a daring recruitment effort begins. "Marvel's The Avengers" is based on the ever-popular Marvel comic book series "The Avengers," first published in 1963 and a comics institution ever since. Prepare yourself for an exciting event movie, packed with action and spectacular special effects, when "Marvel's The Avengers" assemble in summer 2012.


The movie was awesome and great. :D

So, one of the most anticipated movie of the year, or maybe a few years (esp. for MARVEL fans) just opened in Malaysia yesterday. All in all, The Avengers really did lift up to my expectations. Of course, you might not want to get your hype too high up. :p

Well, before you watch the movie, I recommend you to watch previous MARVEL films such as Ironman 2, Thor & Captain America which I'm sure most of you have watched it. Since the background story of the film relates to it.

The story begins at a remote S.H.I.E.L.D. facility of which then Nick Fury arrives when he was informed that the Tesseract (which if you' haven't watched Thor, it's a unlimited, powerful source of energy which originated from the realm of Asgard) is activating by itself and then opens a portal, delivering into our world, Loki. (which is the exiled brother of Thor who seeks of power &  revenge) Loki then took the Tesseract. With this, Nick Fury re-activates the Avengers Initiative in order to stop Loki & retrieve the Tesseract. 

The Avengers was quite well-written.

I'm quite surprised that Whedon did a good job on The Avengers despite there're multiple main characters in the film. All the characters from Ironman, Thor, Captain America, Hawkeye, Black Widow, Hulk, Loki to Nick Fury was given fair screen time and each played their part in the film. Eventhough Nick Fury's script mostly consists of occasional one-liners.(which isn't really a bad thing, since it does give the movie a little more "dramatic" scene. :p) The movie surprisingly contains humour & charm too. 

This film is highly recommended to be watched on the big screen. The sound effects,  cinematography are really good. Visuals are quite good too. Watching in the cinema adds the extra "epic-ness" and "awesome-ness" to many scenes in the film especially action scenes. The action sequences was well shot & played. But, there was one scene where really reminds me of Transformers 3. (If I tell you, I'm afraid it might be a spoiler for the movie. :P) 

Story & Plot of the movie was great.The story was well-scripted as it tells many conflicts in the Avengers as they meet up, Loki's diabolical plans, etc. The Avengers fits to a nice puzzle of the previous Marvel films. (:
Acting was really good. To elaborate about each character would take up time, so all in all, the charcters played really well in the movie. 
Visual effects was awesome.. Cinematography was well crafted & executed. 

Btw, the movie is also screening in 3D & IMAX
Despite having the runtime of the movie to be around 2 hours 20 minutes, you actually can't feel that the movie is that long. :) 

In a nutshell, The Avengers was really good. A highly recommended must-watch movie.
My Rating?

Plot : 4.25/5
Storyline : 3.75/5
Effects** : 4.25/5
OVERALL : 8.75/10.
