I expected more of an Iron Man 1 or Dark Knight type of movie. Instead, it was like a Michael Bay film but instead of Transformers, the Avengers.
I'll watch it again, if for no other reason that I bought it on Blu Ray with the digital copy, music CD, etc. but it was extremely disappointing to me.
Interesting take. The only thing I didn't like is that it wasnt shot wide, so the whole thing felt confined to me. Puzzling decision since all the other Marvel films were shot wide, then they get to the biggest one and shoot it 1:85:1. WTF?
