Being the parent of a 4 year old princess, my movie collection is generally filled with all things pink and princess. However every now and again, I am able to persuade my little lady to watch something out of her normal genre. When we received The Avengers Volume 1 “Heroes Assemble”, and Volume 2 “Captain America Reborn” cartoons (available now on DVD), I knew watching would be an uphill battle since most of my available movie time coincides with my Zoe time. To my delight, Zoe looked at the covers and immediately wanted to pop them in the DVD player.
Five hours and 13 episodes later we were still wanting more. Being a bit of a comic book collector in my youth, I was already a big fan of the Avengers, so keeping my attention wasn’t hard. However, all 13 episodes kept Zoe glued to the screen well past her bed time. The mix of quality story lines, well developed characters, and fantastic audio and video quality make this DVD series one of the best I have seen in a long time. It is a show that can entertain both young and old fans of the superhero genre.
Zoe and I definitely give it two big thumbs up!!!
Note: Series does contain mild cartoon violence, and might not be suitable for younger children.
