Default Marvel's The Avengers

*DISCLAIMER- NOT a comic book reader*

WOW.

How could a mish-mash of mediocre movies come out good?

Thor was lame.

The HULK (pick one) sucked and was ridiculous. That a man could turn into a 3 story being dense enough to lift a finger was preposterous and the scripts sucked...never mind leaping over MOUNTAINS.......

The second IRON MAN sucked horribly.

Captain America lost me after the first 10 minutes, have tried twice with no success to go back and choke it down.

Recipe for disaster? throw in a little Scarlet Johansen in a TIGHT black outfit, and Samuel L Jackson attaining his usual Bad Assery. Stil not convinced?

Really, the Key to making this movie awesome, was taking a little of the BEST of all of the characters, and mixing in a HEALTHY dose of very clever humor.

Epic? Hardly, but so much better than any of the aforementioned movies.

After a good start, mostly centering about Scarlet Johansen and her super powers of.....um....asking questions and stuff.....,our first real combat scene involves Captain America being a little out matched by Loki.

Suddenly ACDC is dropping the effing hammer, and you begin to hope....could it be? Are they doing the simple thing and getting it RIGHT??????

Enter IRON MAN in all the splendor of what they got right in the first IRON MAN with a little more selflessness and heroic mentality.

If you are like me and loved the first Iron Man, but hated the second one......prepare to have your fist involuntarilly raised with the first and fourth fingers pointing towards Odin.

Apparently Jeremy Renner was in that movie. I forgot about him too.

Not his fault, he acted well, but his supernatural ability to hit a target moving 50 mph 200 yards away was a little unbelieveable......especially since it was not noted as a superpower.

Maybe you mis-understand Tytanium. Thor wasn't horrible, just mediocre and unmemorable.

I define that as lame, since it was supposed to be AWESOME.

I don't seem to have the same dislike of some of the other movies. After all the negative reviews on Thor, I found it to be better than expected, not great, but entertaining enough. I liked Captain America quite a bit and Iron Man 2, while not as good as the first, was enjoyable. I hated the Ang Lee Hulk so much I never saw the last one.

However, I think The Avengers did a great job of pulling all the characters together and was very happy with the final product.

I loved it, I was just surprised that they did so well.



As to the other movies, I am PICKY!!!

Especially after IRON MAN knocks it out of the park in the first movie, and then comes back with an "entertaining" sequel?

Sorry, I don't want just the next hollywood "action" movie. I expect a lot more.
95% of what Hollywood does can die a painful death as far as I care.

I do have to say, I think Hollywood is doing a much better job adapting comic book characters to movies these days. It seems in the last ten years or so they've gotten quite a bit better. Fifteen years ago, I probably wouldn't have had a lot of hope for an adaptation.

Hey Cheezy, this is off topic but have you seen Punisher: War Zone?
