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.
See, I thought it worked. I can understand all your gripes, but I think it worked in the context of the story. I didn't have a hard time buying it at all. Cobie Smulders was acting? I didn't notice. She is one fine specimen of a woman.
