Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes
Never underestimate the entertainment value of the Hulk Smash.Tom Charity, CNN.com, 05.08.2012
The banter has zip, the effects are fun, the climactic battle is decently spectacular, and if the 3-D is mostly expendable, there are a few scenes where it adds a nice kick.Bob Mondello, NPR, 05.03.2012
If you are a Marvel fan, then The Avengers will feel like Christmas. Thanks to the merry doings of the director, Joss Whedon, all your favorite characters are here, as shiny and as tempting as presents under the tree.Anthony Lane, New Yorker, 05.08.2012
Whedon, a pop-genre magician best known for Buffy the Vampire Slayer, is a master of viewer manipulation - because he never gives up his own seat in the crowd.Amy Biancolli, San Francisco Chronicle, 05.03.2012
