Jan (Age 12): ★★★★1/2

"I really enjoyed this movie, it was unrealistic at times, which is not something that I like. This film brought together Iron Man, Thor, Hulk, Captain America, Agent Barton, and agent Romenoff, to create a group of heroes, The Avengers. I loved the arguing between The Avengers, it was hilarious. The brother of Thor, Loki, came with an army of extraterrestrials to conquer Earth, with The Avengers split apart and Nick Fury constantly disagreeing with the 'council', Earth needs saving. There were quite funny moments in the film, I really enjoyed them. 'My Favourite character top 3 of this movie' is:

1. Hulk (Bruce Banner)

2. Iron Man (Tony Stark)

3. Captain America (Steve Rogers)

'The Avengers' is the last movie in phase one of MCU, Iron Man 3 kicks off phase two, hopefully it's just as good as this film!"
