The Avengers gets devised and distracted, allowing Loki’s plan to go on, and an army of Chitaury comes out of a gate opened by Loki and start attacking earth.
The Avengers team up for real, and save earth!
This movie is a must see for everyone from all the ages simply because It gathers all of our favorite heroes in one movie.
But as far as for the effect, most of them are recycled from other Movies/series;
The effect used on the eyes of those being mind-controlled by Loki, is the same effect used in” “Charmed” when Evil takes over a person .The Gate opened between the Alien’s world and our world is also an imitating of the series “Star Gate”.
The movie also misses a lot of events and details, like how Dr. Bruce becomes able to control Hulk in the end of the movie, while he couldn’t control him in the first part, how they convince “Thor” to join them and the most important unexplained event , is how Hawkeye while being controlled by Loki was able to find Helicarrier, a high-tech, flying aircraft carrier, which was supposed to be invisible , as it was revealed in the beginning of the movie.
Despite all the “Recycled” effects and missed events, this movie is one of the hottest movies of 2012, and is expected to top the charts , and it is definitely worth watching!
