It has arrived, the highly anticipated blockbuster Marvel movie is now showing in cinemas nationwide. Courtesy of Nuffnang, I had the opportunity to catch the premiere screening of Marvel's The Avengers last week over at One Utama, and I must say it was a good movie.

There was so much hype about The Avengers as the movie the superheroes of recent Marvel's movies namely Thor, Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Captain America: The First Avenger, Hulk. With high hopes and spirits I reached the cinema early to catch this. It was a good feeling being able to catch up with fellow bloggers before any movie screening.

"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."

The movie picked up the pace almost immediately with Nick Fury (Samuel L Jackson), director of the espionage agency S.H.I.E.L.D facing the imminent threat of war towards Earth headed by the exiled Norse god Loki (Tom Hiddleston). Everyone is after this really powerful energy source in a cube called the Tesseract.

One thing led to another, and we then see our whole team of superheroes get assembled into one huge flying S.H.I.E.L.D aircraft. Talking about being claustrophobic, having that many heavyweights on a flying plane is obviously going to create some issues. The good guys were all men, save for an Agent Natasha Romanoff aka The Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) who plays this sexy heroine in tight leather costume.

Together with Iron Man Tony Starks (Robert Downey Jr.), Captain America Steve Rogers (Chris Evans), awesome Thor (Chris Hemsworth), and The Hulk Dr. Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo), we have a team to take down the evil folks. Of course there were a whole lot of misunderstanding and really funny one-liners especially from Tony Starks which kept the audience chuckling.

Overall, The Avengers is basically a Good versus Evil movie on a really high budget. With action scenes throughout most of the movie, it proves to be a real eye candy. Also for those who loves superheroes movie, you'll love The Avengers as well.
Personally, I like this movie, even though there were some parts where the plot gets really simple, but there were so many other times where I appreciate how the superheroes were being played out. We get to see how a three-way battle between Ironman, Thor and Captain America plays out which was pretty cool. Do make it a point to catch Marvel's The Avengers if you have not watched it yet.
Currently there's an ongoing promotion by Harley Davidson too at their Facebook page (http://www.Facebook.com/HarleyDavidsonKualaLumpur) for a chance to win exclusive passes to an exclusive upcoming private screening - The Avengers in Imax 3D at Sunway Pyramid.
