Movie Review: “The Avengers” – Just Desserts

Joss Whedon’s “The Avengers,” a superhero answer to Kellogg’s Variety Pak featuring Captain America, The Black Widow, Iron Man, The Hulk, Hawkeye and Thor, is like a 4th of July celebration, except that its fireworks finale lasts about sixty minutes. This is mostly dessert with little main course, a cacophonous sugar rush of special effects.
