The Avengers

I’ll get right to the point – don’t waste your money on The Avengers. This film is a James Bond wanna-be. Sean Connery is Mr. Augustus, a villain who invented a machine that manipulates global weather. He orders each country to pay 10% of their gross national product or he will unleash weather so severe that millions of people will be killed. Talk about a no-brainer! Oh yeah, there’s more. John Steen and Emma Peel are the Avengers who “save the day.” After the usual secret agent mumbo-jumbo, the Avengers sneak into Mr. Augustus’ castle. While Emma disables the weather machine, John beats Mr. Augustus in a ludicrous fight. The only part of the movie I liked was when Mr. Augustus was playing croquet with a blind woman. Just as she is about to win the game, he steps on her ball and smashes it into the ground. Now I know why I can’t win at croquet; it’s because people keep smashing my balls into the ground! The plot in this movie was stupid, the jokes were ridiculous and if I could have found the door, I would have left. I gladly give this movie an F rating.

This movie has been given a PG-13 rating by the MPAA

Although I am blind, I can appreciate a good movie as well as sighted individuals.
I rely more on a good story line than special effects.
