Marvel’s The Avengers (♦♦♦½)

A cube with sustainable, unlimited energy of the nuclear kind has been stolen by Locki, Thor’s vengeful brother…Of course, Locki didn’t arrive from Asgard alone; he brought with him an army of lethal machines. What other choice does the director of S.H.I.E.L.D. have but to unleash the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) on Locki and his army of extraterrestrial creatures?

Lots of action and mostly destruction, plenty of blown off aircrafts and alien monsters are the highlights of The Avengers. I have to say that in spite of Tony Stark’s ever present and self-adoring humor, The Avengers didn’t impress me in the least; I expected more substance and less fireworks, but what can I say? The summer season is finally here!
