Default Re: The Official Rate/Review Thread for Marvel's The Avengers! (TAG SPOILERS!!!) -

I just saw this for the 1.2nd time (I lasted about 20 minutes the first time, but I was seriously tired).

I found it to be pathetic. It has a decent cast (except Renner), and much of the comicbook imagery is well realised. But everything else was, in my opinion, so superficial and lightweight that I almost found it difficult to keep my eyes on the screen. It was like a menagerie of 200 mediocre moments from 200 mediocre movies.

Its only real merit- in my opinion- is getting a number of comicbook heroes on the screen at the same time. I find it depressing that the first attempt to do this was so hollow and vapid.

In my opinion, etc.
