I'm one of those people lucky enough to still have child-like appreciation for cartoons and Disney Pixar movies. Yes, you heard me right. I'm lucky. So when I saw the opportunity to watch the cartoon superhero television series, 'The Avengers: Thor's Last Stand', my inner child compelled me to go for it.
One of the first things I noticed about The Avengers is it has a pretty cheesy, yet somehow catchy, theme song. Think Captain Planet, but with a lot more guitar gain. The second thing I noticed about The Avengers is Ironman is just as awesome as the movie version and Hawkeye is more awesome despite the fact he wears purple. Or is it because he wears purple? You might just have to watch it yourself to find out. Anyway, it was definitely fun to watch seeing as the rest of my family sat down to watch it at one point, and we're all adults (we're supposed to be anyway). In Thor's Last Stand, the Earth is in danger from Thor's realm, Asgard, but naturally the Avengers don't find out till a bit later on. And guess who's behind it all? Yep, Thor's brother Loki. See what happens when you adopt? Basically the barrier between all nine realms is breaking down, the other realms being inhabited by elves, dwarves, orcs, giants etc. Hmm, kinda sounds like Narnia. You also see some familiar faces such as Hydra. The Avengers has a good story, lots of panicking civilians, it has witty humour sprinkled throughout and - this is very important - there's a lot of action and hulk smashing stuff. It is over the top in places, but at the end of the day it is a cartoon and you have to expect that kind of thing. So if you're mature enough to watch cartoons, and enjoy watching tough guys beat up other tough guys, without having to go through several episodes of Saiyans trash-talking each other, then this is a good watch. 8/10 from me.
