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.
Wow... I haven't heard many people at all complaining about Avengers. And that's from mostly non-comic book people. I really can't say I agree. I thought it was very well done. Getting that many superhero personalities on screen at the same time is quite a feat, and I thought it worked surprisingly well. The humor was perfect. The superhero nuances were very smartly done, and gave a real tip of the hat to comic book nerds.
I thought Loki was well done as well. They managed to show his evil conniving side, while still leaving a little room for a bit of conscience. They showed a tiny bit of internal struggle with Loki, and I thought it worked.
