For a want of a term, this film was Marvelous, even if (naturally) it didn't have time to focus on individual heroes to develop them (that's what their introduction movies were for).

Though Iron Man, once more-so than ever, is an unlikable jackass.
Spoiler for Tony Stark's Heartless Behavior:


Other than that, Thank You Joss Whedon for filling this film with well-timed, intelligent and NON groan-worthy humor (Wizard of Oz fans watch out for a screamingly funny reference!!).

And best of all, this film does NOT operate the camera like it is mounted on a jackhammer, and keeps each shot LONGER THAN 1 SECOND, refusing to pander to the ADD crowd for the sake of being "edgy and realistic." You will NOT feel like vomiting every five seconds like you will with every damned Ridley Scott piece of crap since Gladiator. Two and a half hours went by, you FELT like you watched a 3D movie WITHOUT the nausea that accompanies it. Not ONE spastic MTV style shake happened throughout the ENTIRE film.

Well worth the time!!

Spoiler for Goddamnit though:


This movie is first and foremost massive fanservice of all kinds, but it was very well-done fanservice. It was MARVELous fanservice.

Also, most of the scenes involving Banner and the Hulk were GOLD, especially in the New York battle.

The lines at the local cinemas are horrible. Now I'm forced to watch at an SM, and I hate their theaters.

Yeah, SM Cinemas aren't the best, but they're passable at least. Pre-ordered our tickets a day in advance so we didn't have to go through the lines

Took me 20 minutes to get a ticket myself. And it's a minor cinema too. All in all, a good movie. You do need to have seen the other films though as they didn't waste time explaining too much. But that's what we wanted.

There is a bonus scene when it finally airs in America. So guess I will Youtube that missing scene when it comes out.

After seeing how crowded the theaters were for Thor. (I coyuld only find one seat in the theater, and this was at least a week after it first came out), I fully figured that I'd have to plan on buying tickets in advance. I'm glad my expectations were met.

This is gonna be GOLD.

Frankly it was pretty good. I means no serious plot twitst, and the flow was pretty much the same idea with (most remarkably) Transformer for the final fight in the city. But the fight was really well directed, rather than just forming two line and shooting beams against each other like that Michael Bay's movie

The humour really hit me at the right spot also

Saw it last night, but I was so exhausted from the awesome I went straight to bed.

Also that scene in the credits... well let's say I doubt they can do that with one movie.

Saw it yesterday in an almost empty, large cinema, so I was able to get the best seats. Good superhero flick, not overly serious nor too campy. The way Avengers should be.

You're not getting my point. Steve Rogers isn't the problem. He is used as a reference to a simpler time where the (American) audience has reason to be proud of. But going all moralistic on a comic villain in a light hearted movie and referring to past real atrocities just makes it look silly. Save it for when Cap/Avengers are to be put up against representations of real world villans.

"Silly"?

You think Loki is "Silly"?

You think it is somehow unusual that someone decide that the world is better under his rule, because they are too stupid to rule themselves, is comical? Unrealistic?

There is a reason Steve Rogers never fought Hitler in the film. Steve Roggers is not an actual American Soldier. Steve is a representation of American spirit. That's why he fought Red Skull, a representation of Fascism. And that's why Loki is a representation of all would-be Tyrants. They are ALL Symbols. All of them, even Pepper, or Culson.

Loki IS a "Representation of real world villains". They are all Representation of real people, or ideas of people, pieces of people, thoughts of people, or emotions of people. That's why they are even in this movie. That's why the characters even survived the decades in the comics.

Loki is real. There are many like him. There are many who ARE him.

And Steve Rogers doesn't represent simpler times. Steve Rogers represent a time when Americans actually believed their own rhetoric and tried to live up to it. It's not that America doesn't have anything to be proud of in the modern day; it's that America doesn't bother trying to do anything noble any-more. America is still capable of great things; it just doesn't WANT to.

Okay...pass. What is a pretentious interruption to some disposable entertainment for me, apparently holds a deeper meaning for you. We're not on the same wavelength here so I'll leave it at this.

Basic disrespect for the dead aside, you have just turned a friend and colleague who respected you into a mere tool.

Bravo, Fury. Bra-F#<>ing-vo.

HULK BASH, HULK SMASH. YEAH

The only thing doubts me is the absence of military forces doing nothing.

Actually he turned him into a martyr. Small difference.

Was a freakin awesome movie. I do slightly agree with what Vallen was getting at with the scene in germany, but I'm willing to let it slide. Once scene in an otherwise awesome movie is OK. Besides other then the allusion to Hitler it was a pretty cool scene. Although I was expecting Loki to play the 'god' card rather then 'king'.
