The Avengers Get Critical Thumbs' Up
|Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Captain America (Chris Evans)|
Up to today, The Avengers hit 100% on Rotten Tomatoes' Tomatometer and user reviews on IMDB all praised the US$220-million superhero film sky high. This bodes well for director Joss Whedon who must be the Man of the Month, what with his The Cabin In The Woods (which he co-wrote with director Drew Goddard) receiving critical thumbs up as well. The last time I checked, Cabin In The Woods clocked 92% on the Tomatometer. It was the Number 3 top grosser in the US box-office last weekend.

So far, critics have said they like the clash of super-egos among the superheroes, as well as the awe-inspiring stunts and extraordinary effects.
Looking at it from a value-for-money point of view, we get to see six superheroes for the price of one!
