I had a hard time deciding which movie to watch on my birthday with 3 really excellent choices and didn't end up deciding until 2 hours before the movies starting time. I was down to Dark Shadows and The Avengers, which has had a lot of sold out screens in this area. Finally, decided to see The Avengers after more people suggested it then Dark Shadows today. I asked on this board and on the telephone to everyone I talked with about movies.
First I had watched a couple of the other Marvel Movies and knew the actors would do a good job with their roles and from beginning to end I enjoyed the movie. If you see the movie stay through the credits or you will miss 2 extra scenes and the first is priceless.
I'm certain this one we will buy to see again. I don't suggest this movie for really young people lots of violence and I just about jumped out of seat during one scene.
