Review: Two things about the Avengers. Whoever is behind the many, many trailers and TV spots is masterful at creating whole scenes that are almost separate from the movie. They give away nothing and yet, set you up for awesomely crafted moments in the film. Also, if you’ve been thinking about seeing it but have missed any of the other movies, GO ANYWAY. Joss Whedon has created a brilliantly open and accessible vehicle for both fans and total newcomers alike. Even if you don’t know any of the characters you WILL enjoy this hugely entertaining, well-thought-out movie. It’s THAT good! It’s like a big, loud, dizzying, crazy roller-coaster! I’m going again and again and again.
