So in that case I enjoy a good long battle that makes you feel satisfied when you watch it as opposed to "awww thats it? I want more!".
But I see what your seeing, perhaps some fat could have been trimmed. I'm just trying to determine what exactly inflated the budget of this film to 225 mill and if it could have possibly been reduced and still had an epic looking film. I mean say what you will about Sucker Punch but those battle scenes were incredibly well done and the film was only on an $82 million budget.
The only fight scene I could have did with out was the world engine scene .and I see when watching the avengers as a veiwer u realize wasn't that much action in it thor vs iron man lasted 1:30 hulk vs thor was only about 3 mins and the last battle was about 8mins so out of a 2 hour movie there is only about 20mins solid action when u include the opening scene
