Slight spoilers I had been eagerly awaiting this movie since 2010, and now I finally got to see it earlier today and it didnít exactly disappoint. But I did have a few issues: 1. The slapstick-ish humor. Now, while a bit of comedy is generally a good thing, I found some of these ďpunsĒ occasionally annoying as they felt a bit shoehorned into the plot for the sake of a few cheap laughs. Sort of, ďoh itís been ten minutes without some jokes so letís just have The Hulk bitchslap Thor, thatíll make them laughĒ and after a while it got old. One or two of these puns can be fine, but when you are in the middle of an action scene, and this happened for the 5th time you just want them to quit dicking around and get on with the actual fighting. 2. The fact that the villains are some sort of nameless alien race where everyone looks the same. I would have preferred actual villains with names and personalities for The Avengers to fight against (like Red Skull and Whiplash from Captain America and Iron Man 2). And no, Loki barely counts as a Big Bad as he was basically a Butt Monkey throughout the movie. 3. The 3D was pretty pointless. 4. Slight Anti-Climax. Otherwise, I think it was a good movie and very entertaining. They handled the large cast of superheroes quite well (I was a bit worried that it was going to be like X-Men 3 with lots of characters that did absolutely nothing), but in The Avengers no one felt all that left out or useless (although Tony Stark seemed to have to most screen time and the best lines). All in all, itís a good movie, it looks GREAT (!), but it's neither better nor worse than the movies leading up to it. Itís really just a bigger cast and more heroes. I recommend seeing it, your mind is probably not going to be blown away by its amazingness, but you will most likely feel entertained at the very least. And the movie certainly opens up for a sequel. As in my other review, if you find any spelling/grammar fail, do tell.
