Animated Superheroes that break the PG rating Barrier? The Ultimate Avengers have arrived on DVD in a nicely 2D animated film with a “we can show people DIE!” PG-13 rating.
Coming from the creative minds behind Spiderman the Animated Series and X-Men Evolution, the film is based on Marvel’s famed all-star superhero team that Stan Lee began with core members Thor, Iron Man, Wasp, Ant/Giant Man, and Captain
I’ll be honest; I’m just not as fond of Marvel Comic’s characters, granted there are some exceptions. I’m more of a DC comics guy. Most of the heroes in this film were unfamiliar to me except for the Hulk, Giant/Ant man, and my personal favorite Wasp. And unfortunately none of the Avengers have “Secret Identities” except for Iron Man who looses his very early in the film. Out of all the new “unfamiliar” heroes the only one I really liked was Thor, I don’t know why but that magical axe is sweet!!
The movie itself seemed rushed. The movie seems to focus on Captain
The final battle between the Avengers and “Nazi-friendly Aliens” provided some good action scenes and a few laughs and “Ouch” moments. But the entire film turned around for me in the last 10 minutes. That’s right, Bruce Banner finally unleashes the Hulk! I’ve got two words for you . . . HULK SMASH! Hulk smashes sooo much that I almost forgot all about that awful smash-free live action Hulk movie disaster. And with all that smashing, the Hulk looses it and must Smash more even when there are no aliens left to smash. So what does Hulk smash, you ask? Why the Avengers of course! And it is this final battle between the Hulk and the Avengers that save this film for me. Some of my personal favorite beat-downs are Hulk’s fist to Giant man’s knee cap, the Wasp attacking Hulk from inside his ear, and Hulk vs. Thor (A fight worthy of a Garthug’s attention!)
So in the end a sexy Wasp, Thor’s sweet Axe, and plenty of Hulk Smashing give this film 3 out 5 Slinus Heads!

"Welcome to the Blog of Slinus! This is where I'll post random stuff, keep conversations, ask for your opinons, and keep an online Diary. Come back often as I plan to update at least once or twice a week."
Well, I may not update on a weekly basis anymore but the original idea behind the Blog is still here and better yet it has served as a communication link between the "Game Room" friends now that most of us have left school.
So for the remainder of the month "Slinus Blog" will be celebrating it's birthday with wacky old-school slinus blog stuff.
