The Avengers

Given how run-of-the-mill both “Thor” and “Captain America” were, I had little expectations for this film and was happily wrong.  I believe this was the most fun I have had at a superhero movie in a long time.  It is, perhaps, one of the most capital “F” Fun movies in the genre (understanding that films like “The Dark Knight” and “The Watchers” cannot be called Fun in that same way.).  It had many of the qualities I liked about the first “Iron Man,” not surprising given how much air-time Robert Downey had, and gives us the only film-version Hulk worth watching.  It was a loud and very silly romp but a thoroughly enjoyable one.
