Joss Whedon redeemed himself in The Avengers movie

12 05 2012

Joss Whedon’s The Avengers movie demonstrated a good script from page to screen. The visuals and dialogue worked rather well, especially when several dominant Marvel characters must share screen time. Good acting, dialogue, and visual aesthetics are key aspects to what makes a movie a good watch. What did we like about The Avengers script?

First of all, The Avengers script is not Cabin in the Woods. We can look past deceptive tactics in the strange satirical movie, forgiving Whedon for attempting to create a movie that craps on horror movies and mostly all the genres. The Avengers movie script opens with a good setting. Loki enters to brainwash Hawkeye and the Professor. Therefore, the catalyst is reclaiming the tesseract and stopping Loki from creating havoc on Earth.

Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) is undeniably the wheels that turn The Avengers movie. He represents the dominant character throughout the film. Whedon crafted good jokes, though he reserved the best for Iron Man. Downey Jr. is experienced with delivering movie lines in a charismatic way. Stark makes movie fans laugh, executing the jokes on time. He carries the bulk of the superhero movie to keep the spine intact. Whedon’s writing and directing abilities enable the cast members to reach great performances.

Chris Evans’s Captain America and Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man steal the show. Chris Hemsworth’s Thor is much better than his previous performance in Cabin in the Woods. We can’t fault Chris for acting in a multi-genre movie that Joss Whedon wrote.

Why would we think Joss Whedon redeemed himself after writing Cabin in the Woods? Cabin in the Woods is not as good of a movie as many think. Of course, we have many movie fans writing a book of comments to protect their satire movie. If we don’t laugh at the jokes, then people assume we lack a sense of humor. It is a lose-lose topic to discuss Cabin in the Woods. Write a good review, and people attack you for enjoying Cabin in the Woods. ¬†On the opposing side, write a negative review about Cabin in the Woods to get bashed.

We appreciate comments to explain the Cabin in the Woods. Joss Whedon seemed to be thinking of his The Avengers movie while writing Cabin in the Woods. Cabin in the Woods is generating far more action online than at the box office. The Avengers movie is not the best superhero movie ever, though the major production has staying power to last the long haul. Movie viewers laughed at the jokes and some funny moments such as The Hulk smashing Loki into the ground.

The Avengers movie is self-explanatory. We understand the mission – The Avengers must retrieve the tesseract andstop Loki from from destroying the world. In the subplot, Nick Fury wants to demonstrate that The Avengers can coexist as a super team ready to serve the world. Whedon’s The Avengers is a good movie script with effective dialogue, funny jokes, character arcs, three act dramatic structure, and great action.
