Most of those so-called Plot Holes were justified in the movie if you paid attention. Others weren't really Plot Holes (the S.H.I.E.L.D. stuff for example, as far as we are concerned, S.H.I.E.L.D. could in another diemnsion during the events of this movie). There are legitimate Plot Holes, yes, but there are very few compared to the amount of nitpicks people say are Plot Holes.
Besides, 'smart' depends on what you're watching. There are some logic holes in the movie, yes, but those are unimportant for me for example, just small quibbles that don't affect the overall experience. Story
wise it's a very smart and strong blockbuster.
