Congratulations to all —cast and crew—-JOB WELL DONE!

Wow ! Avengers rule.

I tried to watch a screening of this last night but all times were sold out until midnight and we were there at 7. Maybe I’ll watch this week when I get off work. Good to know it wasn’t just another “spiderman part 145″ movie

Don’t forget Tom Hiddleston! He is amazing as Loki!

The movie was cr@p!
It doesn’t deserve that much money for something so boring and mediocre!
I watched the first hour and half and all they did was talk, there was no action!
I’m just waiting for the Dark Knight Rises!
Now that movie will blow my mind thanks to Christopher Nolan and the cast and especially JGL!

Saw it yesterday with my bf. It was the only movie I ever stood up and clapped for at the end.

It’s so great , the movie is very funny and great, I love it … i’m so happy that it a record

Good laugh out loud Fun, Fast paced entertainment fr beg to end.
Chris Hemsworth. and Tom Hiddleston are Gorgeous!!


Incredible movie! Well deserved, I was blown away. I think non of the people at the theater could really believe what they had seen, everyone just sat there for like 5 more minutes to take it all in! lol, amazing movie!

Bravo, Avengers!! I saw it on Friday and it was AWESOME!!!! People in the theater clapped at the end. This is what happens when you have a well-written, well-acted, fast-paced movie with a good dose of humor thrown in. Well done!!!

If the MTV awards have a Best Beatdown category, my vote goes to Hulk vs. Loki.

it was amazing film!
when i went to watch it the cinemas was PACKED!!
well deserved.

hope there’s going to be a number 2 coming out!

It was good, but The Dark Knight this movie is not. Looking foward to the last one, which will bury this movie.

its kinda a let down that people ignore good movies like the lucky one .zac efron was great in it.and go for these big movies that don have any sole.

man these zac efron fans are annoying like their idol.and zac efron is a very bad actor.and the lucky one was another flop

@zefron: get the F from this site ,go comment on just jared J,realy zac efron?

i am sick and tired from zac efron fans,they should get a life,zec is never gonna happen enough already.

I saw this movie and it was so freakin awesome! It had the whole theater laughing and cheering for the avengers! It’s worth the ticket price. Heck I’m willing to see it again!

Trinity J @ 05/06/2012 at 5:23 pm


Wow! Awesome! The cast deserves it.

Avengers_Rox @ 05/06/2012 at 6:46 pm


No, they were probably sitting for 5 minutes afterwards to wait for the hidden scenes at the end of the credits. LOL

Amazing movie!! I haven’t laughed so hard in a superhero movie in a long time! Can’t wait for the sequel!!!

This movie was AWESOME!!! I had a blast and laughed so hard. The entire audience was enthralled as well!

The movie was awesome, beyond words. All the other summer blockbusters will have really BIG trouble following up on this one… I really don’t see how anyone could swallow Battleship after this. Even with the great effects, even with the just-for-fun factor… Avengers has IT ALL. If I have to spend my money on a movie again next weekend, it’ll be to see Avengers again.

The AVENGERS, of course MARK RUFFALO character HULK is the one that entertained me the most, everybody laughing.

thanks to thor and captain americaa

@Avengers_Rox: I meant after that scene! :)
