The Avengers gets the double E: entertaining and enjoyable. The characters meshed well together and shared the spotlight, which is unusual for movies with such star power. The focus was kept on the story and how the characters fit within it. But, one character stole the movie – The Hulk played by Mark Ruffalo. His portrayal was spot on when compared to the Hulk TV show. He also provides the comic relief through the movie.
Iron Man, played by Robert Downey Jr., annoyed me throughout the movie. A lot of witty sarcasm came across as forced and not so witty. The audience agreed as most of his one liners got no response.

PS The Hubs insists that Chuck aka Devil Dog also gave a rating despite not seeing the film. Apparently, The Hubs related it to him afterward. Chuck gives the film a B- as he did not care for the lack of animals in the movie (not including the Hulk).
|For reference, The Hubs has been told he looks like both Adam Levine and Stifler. *Shrugs*|
What did you think of The Avengers? Do you agree with The Hubs or Devil Dog? Have any names you'd like to see featured in the "Name My Husband" poll (please, keep it clean)?
