Before the Movie:
Decided to see the movie at the Loews Streets of Woodfield 20

There was a bit of a time to wait and quite a bit of a line. People in line were enjoying concession snacks, talking about other movies, movie theaters and just entertaining themselves. The line eventually went all the way back toward the (upper level) concessions. AMC staff was always around. All part of the Opening weekend experience.
Thoughts on the Movie:
The movie is 2 hrs and 23 minutes long. As Big Budget movie as you can get ( 220 Million).
Joss Whedon really did it! Action, comedy and story. Each Hero did have their moment in the to shine. They also get to the point where they seemed very drained.
The Iron Man flight sequences were some of my favorite parts. I would even say they were as good, if not better than the ones found in the Iron Man movies. We see more of S.H.I.E.L.D (more than just a link between films) Really nice how they bought back some of the other characters from previous marvel movies. Stan “The man” Lee makes his usual Cameo at some point. Stay seated until after the credit finish rolling for a little extra something.
Alan Silvestri did an great job with the film’s score. The (main) Avengers theme was still playing in my mind after the end of the movie. The man can score Superhero films.
That’s all I can really say without going into more heavy spoilers…
My Ticket from the showing. The waiting time and ticket price were both worth it.
I definitely recommended that you watch this film, even if you’re not a comic book fan. Would be willing to watch the movie again. I hope there will be a lot of special features when this comes to Blu-Ray/DVD. Really odd how the US got the movie later than the rest of the world.
