Action: (10/10)

Special Effects: (10/10)

Costume: (10/10)

Sound: (9/10)

Suggestion: (10/10)

Best Part: The first glimpse of Hulk and the fight scene that follows

Star Performance Tom Hiddleston as Loki whose every line is so coldly executed to create the perfect villain

Favourite Character Hard to pick, as they are all equally as good as one another.

Overall: When it comes to family friendly superhero films they usually come up short and extra cheesy. This one has managed to put everything together to create the perfect family friendly superhero film. Every action sequence uses each character strengths to keep the action at the top level. The Banter level between the characters also works and keeps everything very light hearted. This will be enjoyed by all but may still end up only being the second best superhero film of the year.
