Re: The Official Rate/Review Thread for Marvel's The Avengers! (TAG SPOILERS!!!) -
I like that XMFC is a unique take on the material, but there are many overly expository and awkward moments and poorly designed characters. Angel and Beast and Banshee are silly the way they are presented, and Emma Frost is generic eye candy (if fake boobs are your thing). The grenade scene is just embarrassing.
Its still better than XMOWolverine, but its not in the league of TA. And the film relies too heavily on extended montages. Lazy writing.
