Product Description

Blasphemy? Perhaps. But the best thing about what may be the most rousing and well-crafted superhero movie since The Dark Knight is not the boffo action scenes that culminate in a New York City-destroying finale that rivals Michael Bay's obliteration of the Chicago skyline in Transformers: Dark of the Moon. No, the real appeal of The Avengers comes from the quiet moments among a group of decidedly unquiet humans, extra-humans, mutants, and demigods. In no particular order those are Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Captain America (Chris Evans), Bruce Banner/Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), S.H.I.E.L.D. world-government commander Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), and indispensable functionary Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg). That's a superstar lineup both in and out of character, and The Avengers brilliantly integrates the cast of ensemble egos into a story that snaps and crackles--not to mention smashes, trashes, and destroys--at breakneck pace, never sacrificing visual dazzle or hard-earned story dynamics. Writer-director Joss Whedon is no slouch when it comes to being a comic geek and he handles the heavy duty reins with efficient panache. The effects are of course spectacular. They include a monstrous flying aircraft carrier that is home base to S.H.I.E.L.D. and Nick Fury's Avenger Initiative; Tony Stark's gleaming skyscraper in midtown Manhattan; off-world scenes of malignant evil; as well as blindingly apocalyptic fights and the above-mentioned showdown that leaves New York a virtual ruin. Yet it's the deeply personal conversations and confrontations among the very reluctant team of Avengers that makes the movie pop. Full of humor, snappy dialogue, and little asides that include inside jokes, eye rolls, and personal grudge matches, the script makes these superhumans real beings with sincere passion or feelings of disillusionment. The conviction of the actors as they fully commit to their clever lines gives credibility to what comes off as more than simple banter, even during the more incredible moments among them (of which are many). The plot involves the appearance of Loki, disgraced villain and brother of Thor, who was also a key player in his eponymous movie. Loki has come to Earth to retrieve the Tesseract, a blue-glowing energy cube that is valuable beyond compare to forces good and evil throughout the universe. As Loki, Tom Hiddleston is supremely, yea gloriously appealing as the brilliantly wicked regal charmer who captures minds from S.H.I.E.L.D. and attempts to conquer Earth with the hideous army at his command. To say he is foiled is an understatement. His face-off with the Hulk is one of the giddiest moments in a movie filled with lightheaded mayhem, and is a perfect example of Whedon's throwaway approach to translating the mythic mystique of the Marvel comics universe. Though at times deadly serious (as deadly serious as an outrageous superhero destructo/fight-fest movie can be, that is), The Avengers is best when it lightens up and lets the fun fly alongside the powerhouse punches. By the way, a single blink-and-you'll-miss-it powerhouse punch is another moment that makes Hulk the most loveable underdog of a smashing green rage monster ever. That spirit of fun and pure adventure makes The Avengers the greatest kind of escapist Hollywood fantasy $250 million can buy. A blockbuster in the most literal sense. --Ted Fry

Format: Blu-ray
Length: 2:16 Mins
[NOTE: This review is for the US version - my understanding is that it is the same as the CA version in terms of content.]

This set is great for Marvel fans - all the movies are high-quality entertainment. If you do not already own these movies, then this set is perfect for you because it's all the movies in one box set. But if you already own some or all of the movies, the big question is: should I also buy this briefcase set? Well, here are my thoughts:

- The blu-ray discs included are identical to the ones found in the previous individual releases of the films. Picture and Audio quality is very good.

- For those interested in 3D, the 3D versions of "Thor", "Captain America", and "The Avengers" are included.

- If you already owned the 2-disc Special Editions of "Iron Man" or "Iron Man 2", you might want to keep the special features/bonus discs from those sets. Unfortunately, this briefcase set only includes the one movie disc for those films.

- There is a SHIELD Bonus Disc exclusive to this set... it contains about an hour of deleted scenes and pre-visualization sequences. I expected there to be so much more bonus content - I would have liked to see more interviews, featurettes, VFX breakdowns, etc.

- No DVDs or Digital Copies included. This is a bit surprising, because the individual Marvel releases always included those.

- The briefcase feels a bit cheaper than I would have liked. It has a nice finish and is fine to look at, but once you pick it up it lacks weight and doesn't feel very durable.

- The Tesseract (cube) itself lights up when you tap it against your palm. The briefcase also lights up via a button on the outside of the briefcase, or whenever it is opened.

Mais qui ne sont pas sûrs de prendre le risque d'acheter un coffret un peu onéreux avec des blu-rays qui ne fonctionneraient pas chez nous, n'hésitez plus ! Les disques sont parfaitement lisibles sur mon lecteur blu-ray de salon français. Il y a un doublage français sur chacun des films, mais seul Iron Man 1 (et peut-être Hulk, mais je n'en suis pas sûre) semble être le doublage fait pour la France, les autres sont ceux faits pour le Canada. Pas que ça me gêne, je le signale simplement. Tous les documents bonus à l'intérieur sont en anglais, donc il faut un minimum de connaissances linguistiques pour profiter des petits dossiers fournis. La valise et le tesseract fournis sont des petits gadgets sympas mais globalement assez fragiles, donc à manipuler avec une certaine douceur (mais avec des pincettes non plus lol) J'espère que mon commentaire sera utile pour ceux qui se poseraient des questions.

Was very much looking forward to this. Then it couldn't be sent out because of the case fiasco. I understand that and the length of time & cost to replace that element. The part that is the let down is that the case itself seems really cheap compared to the contents & previous case look.I love the art work on the disk covers, items in files are well though out & executed. My tesseract seldom lights up & could be better. Gets 4* for contents, case it's self seems like a cheap toy. (Wasn't expecting the real deal but have other "toys" that are done better.)Still good purchase if u don't already own all the disks.

Quality disks, check.
The movies I want in one collection, check.
Cool packaging, double check (showing it off to my jealous nephew).
Additional geek gold, check. Enough to satisfy the additional cost, hmmmm...
Cool display for my media room, not so much.
Good could have been great it they had included a few more SHIELD items or perhaps a graphic novel (opps, meant to say comic book) and a single holder for all the movies for my bookcase.
Great birthday present for myself.

I had to wait for this beast because of Marvel's lawsuit snafu with the original designers of the briefcase, so it's understandable but a shame that after they rushed this through to finally ship it out, the case itself is rubbish. Plasticky and flimsy, and the Tesseract cube that's supposed to glow cutely when you open the box, uh, kinda broke when I dropped it on the floor. I wanted to do a tired joke about Loki but I feel 16 year old girls on Tumblr have done that for me.

That aside, I love the little dossiers and notecards - very nice touch for worldbuilding if you're a big fan of that. The discs themselves are great completionist collection of the Phase 1 films, with most of the extras to be expected.

The film itself? It introduces the team's great leader Captain America with a long lingering pan up his shapely butt in sweatpants. It made $1.5 billion dollars for a reason.

I guess some other people were there but you know, butts.

Love it!
The added merchandise and props from each film is worth being framed or at least displayed. It has more deleted scenes that are only for this set. The phase one exclusive is pretty nice and can only be found in this box set. Overall if you don't have the other films and or would like to have something a little extra with your collection then this would be worth it.
