It’s my first guest post! Wilko is a friend who I met through this blog and happens to live in a country where The Avengers was already released. Read his spoiler-free reflections below and check out his blog TheGamingChristian.com.
There are several reasons why I think I’m blessed to be living in Namibia, this third world country of mine. Reasons such as the sheer variety of different people living together peacefully (upwards of 60 local languages), the fact that we were given the time, while the West only received the watch, and the fact that Simba and Mufasa live right outside my bedroom window make for a blessed life here in the depths of Africa.
However, God’s true blessing for this country was revealed last week when The Avengers hit local cinemas.
I thought it would launch weeks after its international release, which is a common occurrence around here. Instead, The Avengers was launched here on 27 April and I had a chance to watch it. I wouldn’t dare spoil it for you, but let me tell you that this movie is everything I had hoped for and so much more. I think the director did a terrific job of putting some of the greatest superheroes of all time not only into one movie, but into one functioning body without neglecting the character development of each hero. The acting, as expected by the names on the cast, is top notch. The storyline is typically Marvel, but solid enough to keep you in your seat, while the CG and camera work are incredibly well done.
For me, all of those elements thrown together with a good dose of humor, made for the best movie experience of the year.
Below you can read some of my reflections, and I promise I will keep it spoiler free. Read more »
