I love superheroes. A lot. Spider Man is my favourite, although I haven't seen the new one yet. The old movies were good enough, I think. Anyway, yes, The Avengers. I'd already seen Thor, and I thought it was terrible, sorry. I may be biased being Norwegian and from the country from which the legend actually originates, and having had a particular interest in Norse mythology at one point in my life. Still, Thor was a big disappointment, so I wasn't all that excited about The Avengers after all.
Either way, if you want to fully comprehend the actions and characters in The Avengers, it's a good idea to watch Thor, Iron Man 1 & 2 (note that Iron Man 3 is set after The Avengers), and Captain America (I think). The Incredible Hulk I'm not sure of, as I haven't seen it, I've only seen an older version, but go ahead and watch that too if you feel like you have the time.

The characters in the movie were the best part. They're funny and cool, not to mention good-looking, but also contain a lot of personality.
The movie lasted well over 2 hours, which was a bit too long for me. I just can't focus that long, I had the same problem with Iron Man 3. I really wish they made movies a bit shorter, especially when a lot of the content wasn't really necessary. Still, by the end I was so into the movie yet happy to see it end.

In the end, I do recommend it.
The way to enjoy this movie is to not take it too seriously. My friend and I laughed through most of it, because of the stereo-typicality of it. Overall I gave is 7/10, which is quite a score for someone who doesn't normally enjoy watching movies at all.
(I realised I forgot to even mention what the story is, but you know, superheroes trying to save the world. That's all, really).
