First off, this isn’t a spoiler. If you’ve been reading my reviews long enough, you know that I don’t do spoilers. There are many other places to go if you want a spoiler review, but this place isn’t it. Now that I’ve got that disclaimer out of the way, let’s get into the most anticipated movie of the year, picking up where it left off in 2012 (unless you’ve also been paying attention to the individual Marvel movies, then you’re fine). With nothing but an extra scene at the end of the credits (like always), and a few trailers being the guiding light for this movie, I didn’t know what to expect. I’m not a comic book nerd expert to any degree, so I’m just watching these movies from a straight-lined unbiased point of view, with only the knowledge of the movies at hand, therefore it would be a different experience for me as opposed to those whom have been buried deep in the pages, layers, and texts of info to build them up for these movies.
For my regular moviegoers without broad knowledge, let me holla at you guys, because this is for us (not to shun the others). For every movie that continues, each enemy serves as one that leads to the eventual big boss that I assume will appear in the next movie (but that’s what they want us to think). This time around, throughout the efforts of making the world a better place, the ongoing case of human error seems to (again) lead to the threat of eliminating all existence (as if the first Avengers wasn’t a heartache enough). The movie provides nothing short of action, as it was intended, but there’s also an element of mystery that is revealed throughout individual fears & dark moments. It’s the catalyst that drives the movie for the most part, and it tests the will of the team whether they will stick together or separate. I’ll leave it at that, because then it would be spoiling. I will say this much though, it helps if you’ve watched the individual movies (Captain America, Thor, Iron Man) to get an idea of what’s being talked about in some instances, and if you have a comic book friend to go with to provide extra nuggets (like I did – shout out to Britany), then that’s an added bonus.
If you can avoid watching this movie in 3D, please for the love of God avoid it, because there’s nothing truly exceptional that warrants it to be shown in 3D. Movie theatres are just greedy as hell lately, and for people like myself who wear glasses, you can hear my annoyance through my words. End this epidemic of 3D movies. I know it’s the future, but damn, give a guy some options. Summer time is fast approaching, but in movie terms, it has already arrived. This is a good start (unless you already started with Furious 7, then this is just a continuation). Be excited and definitely take the time out to watch it when you find the time. But for now, this is my opinion, this is my review
That’s My Word & It STiXX
