Avengers Assemble is the accumulation of years of work leading up to this point linking different characters from other movies all in the Marvel universe. There have been easter eggs, extra scenes and references all connecting the franchies together. If you haven't seen them this film is still watchable but I would highly recommend you watch Marvel phase one in this order first to get the most out of it:

1- Iron Man
2- The Incredible Hulk
3- Iron Man 2
4- Thor
5- Captain America: The First Avenger

Onto Avengers Assemble then, I simply loved it. The plot is fairly thin on the ground but seems to be leading onto events in future movies. Loki, the trickster god having been thwarted from obtaining power in Asgard has made a pact with an alien race called the Chitauri to help him take over the earth in exchange for a mysterious cube called the Tesseract. Nick Fury the commander of the international agency SHIELD desperate and outgunned inacts the Avengers initiative calling on earth's most powerful if unstable heroes to stop them.

As a fan of the comics when I was 5 to about 16, this is a fair attempt to bring the Avengers to film. The main characters of the incredible Hulk, the Mighty Thor, Iron Man and Captain America (from a later run of the comics) are included and I like the way that marvel included the scene of Thor donning his armour in a field (Was this an attempt to slip in something of the norse mythology on earth, instead of Asgard, where Thor resided in Bilskirnir (lightning-crack) within Thrudvangar ("the field of power")? Possibly not, as Bilskirnir was a Hall/palace & Thrudvangar and Thrudheim ("World of Strength") are often inter-changed ...but it was still a very enjoyable film. Anyway, don't get the U.K release you'll get short changed. Buy the US import 3D blu-ray combo. You'll get a 3D fully featured, multi-region, full version of the film without any of the editing that goes on in the U.K version, a fully featured multi-region un-cut blu-ray of the film that has Joss Whedon's commentary, deleted scenes and other special features, a US coded DVD (This is for US region1 DVD players and multi-region DVD players only), a digital copy of the film (downloads to iTunes with a US iTunes account) and a MP3 Avengers music album. Enjoy!!!

I ordered from "All your music" and it arrived from the US to the UK and to my door within 9 days.

When we the public were being primed for the introduction of Blu-Ray, one of the primary benefits of the greater capacity in relation to DVD was that there would be access to far more features and extras such as directors commentarys; yes they were going to be considerably more expensive than DVD but you got so much more for your money, it wasn't just better sound and audio.

However, here we see despite the significantly higher premium over DVD, this Blu-Ray offers zero extras, not because they're not available or won't fit on the disc, but because Disney know many individuals will have been waiting for this disc and will pre-order, unaware of the omissions, and of course Disney will then release a 'Special Edition' including everything they should include now.

The sad fact is that many enthusiasts will end up buying both Blu-Rays, and it's this disgraceful attitude towards the UK and all markets except the US which means I never buy new Blu-Rays anymore, preferring to buy them used on Amazon.

And the studios wonder why there's such a massive market for pirated films? It's because you're a bunch of greedy, self-serving entities that's why.

Scenes edited, extras missing all because they rushed the UK release. Other European countries get this unedited.

Please please buy the US version which will work on your UK PS3 or Bluray player. Unedited & all the extras.

Not only have Disney treated their UK buyers appallingly by leaving off special features (they've already dropped the DVDs from their animated classics unlike the US versions) it now seems as if we get the edited version that (some) other European countries are getting. How can Disney even release a version here that wasn't the one classified by the BBFC?

This is completely unacceptable and shows nothing more than contempt for UK customers, especially considering the movie in question.

I can understand retailer exclusives with bonus discs and steelbook packaging, but no matter where you buy it you'll not be getting the complete movie.
