The new Avengers movie starts right into action with Iron Man, Black Widow, the Hulk , Hawk Eye and Thor battling to get into a stronghold to reclaim Loki’s sceptre. The sceptre is being experimented by Hydra and guarded by two mysterious twins with superpowers. The Avengers manage to get the staff and the adventure begins.
I thought it was a great movie and I think it is better than the first one. I liked how the Avengers are a good team of friends who banter, argue and support each other. In the movie, the Avengers inner demons are explored which influences their actions and motives. Tony Stark/Iron Man makes a decision which puts the world in danger and causes conflict with the rest of the team. Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow and Bruce Banner/the Hulk have a budding romance but are hindered by their past. Steve Rogers/Captain America is at odds with Tony Stark’s decisions. Thor wonders whether he will be a good king to Asgard and fears that something more sinister in on the way. Lastly, it is revealed that Hawkeye has more to live for than the other Avengers know.
The action sequences are entertaining to watch and everyone gets their moment to shine. While there is a lot of violence, I would feel comfortable with watching this film with children. The Avengers fight an army of robots so there isn’t any bloodshed.
The acting was good which was expected as the cast are notable actors. Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor- Johnsonew played twins Pietro and Wanda Maximoff also known as Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch fit nicely in with the rest of the crew. The two get to show off their powers to the fullest during the final battle sequence.

As always, the world is saved by the end of the movie and with the promise a sequel. I think Marvel fans won’t be disappointed with this movie.
