The recent Avengers film, while noted for being ostensibly a Wheden film, still has a few pitfalls, despite being relatively entertaining: it has relatively little character development. It all boils down to roughly 1/3 action sequence, 2/3 acceptable amount of plot, following a traditional formula I first saw used in Ben Affleckís Daredevil, which is noted for containing nothing notable. Avengers is the same way, with the exception of a giant fish lizard thing rendered acceptably well in CGI. Among other things is the exceptional amount of Whedon dialogue, by which I mean the jokes are funny, such as Loki getting ragdolled, but the dramatic scenes, designed specifically not to make you laugh, ended up being the most humorous parts of the film. Deaths are riddled with narm in sufficient amounts to make this overall a very hammy film. Some characters are outright useless. Captain America pulls a lever and hits things with his shield. End Scene. Black Widow kicks people and has tits. End Scene. Pros of this movie:
- Fan Service, in the form of Black Widowís tits, and Chris Evens in spandex.
- A better portrayal of the Hulk.
- A few funny moments
- And the mandatory 40 minute long action scene.
