Audiences have been waiting for six years, and some change, for The Avengers.
And it doesn’t disappoint.
As a project this movie and its many prequels are one hell of an accomplishment.
It shouldn’t work to pull that many stories, that many actors, themes and personalities.
But like a rag-tag group of super heroes, it does.
Any flaw with the prequels, any flaw with the story telling, acting or production design is done away with because Joss Whedon delivers a movie that is a funny, exciting story-driven thrill ride that will reduce most people in the audience to a kid.
Simply put: This movie is excellent.
Because it was worth every minute of waiting.
