The Avengers Matches the Hype

My nephew and I attended The Avengers this past weekend, and I'm happy to report that the movie lived up to its incredible hype. 

As a kid that collected comic books, and to whom The Avengers were a favorite, I really wanted this movie to be what it was billed.  And it was in spades.  Dialog and story were strong, action outstanding, and effects flawless. 

As is the case with major Hollywood efforts of late, beyond my concern about the movie being oversold, I was also concerned about a preachy, liberal message.  In fact, that wasn't the case at all.  It was nearly the opposite.  I won't discuss the points and spoil the movie for those that may not have seen it yet, but for me it was so evident that it was noticeable and refreshing. 

Go see The Avengers.  It is a raucous, two-hour thrill that will get you back in touch with your inner 8 year old.
