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

[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.

Price this one out for what you get right now. Buying each movie individually would be almost the same amount. This one gives you a ton of cool extras for a fan of the movie.

The Case is hard plastic, and seems durable enough despite what people are saying. I think if you expected a metal case at this price, you're a bit delusional. The case lights up with a button on the outside, and also lights up inside when you open it. The Teseract is interesting, but slightly disappointing. It's basically a white plastic shell with a LED inside that will light up when you shake it.

The movies are well packaged, and you also get a 3D blue ray copy for most of the more recent films that were released in 3D, as well as the regular Blu Ray. Also you get 6 shield files, with detailed files for Thor, Tony Stark, Steve Rodgers, Bruce Banner that contain a whole lot of cool information, extras and memorabilia tied to the films.

I think if you don't already own the movies, and want the collection plus a really cool display item for your shelf, this is a way better option than buying each movie individually.

This collector's edition is great not only if you don't have any of the movies, but also for all the goodies inside the case. Let's start by the outside. The briefcase is made of plastic (of course) and is designed for children so the handle is very small and that make the case hard to carry. The S.H.I.E.L.D logo lights up by the Tesseract inside when we press a button under the handle. Each movie is in a cardboard pocket with a nice design representing the movie, but their downward position in the case could make the disc slip during transport and could be scratched (mine were scratchless). The files contains great stuff (props from the movies among others). Only the files were a little folded at the top. The Tesseract has light up when you smack it in your palm. It can take few times before he works
This is a great item to display in your Marvel fancave and the only reason it didn't get 5 stars is because some items (mainly the files) were not in mint condition at reception.

We have been talking about movies like this for 3 decades and now we can enjoy good quality superhero movies. Marvel has done a good job in bringing their property to the big screen. As part of their Phase One, they gave us 5 stand alone movies, origin stories, which culminated in Avengers. While this box set does not offer much more bonus material compare to original Blu Rays and the box and cube are more like toys for kids, it is the rest of the collectibles that makes it fun to own: Captain america trading cards (even one smeared with agent Coulson's blood!), Tony Stark's sketch of the mark one armor, Steve Rodgers and Thor's little drawings from the movies, etc. If you do not already own all movies, I recommend this set!! At the time, after they announced the making of Avengers, I decided to wait for a box set instead of buying them one at a time, and I was not let down by the coolness of owning a Cosmic Cube!!
