Movies:  "Marvel The Avengers"


If you’re a fan of Marvel Comics and the great Golden Age team of writer Stan Lee and artist Jack Kirby, I guarantee you’ll enjoy this movie.  If you’re a fan of comic book movies in general, ditto.  If you’ve already seen more than your share of massive explosions, alien invasions and superheroes battling evil (and occasionally each other), maybe not so much.
