Who was making jokes? The humor was all situational.
Darcy was making funny comments, they were just poorly placed, and really Darcy and her intern shouldnt have been so involved in the final battle IMO.

The train is awful to me, the final battle ruins any momentum it develops by throwing stupid jokey scenes into it.

Yes lives would be lost etc. but I just saw Superman kill thousands of people last summer so I'm happy if Thor saves the universe with aplomb.
We know the ending to these movies, does that mean they shouldnt be tension filled or the danger shouldnt be felt? Say what you want about MOS but I felt the threat and tension of the final battle. Not so here, it was like a battle in the middle of an episode of Cheers, and that shouldnt be happening in a CBM.

No one has said there cant or shouldnt be humour in these movies, but dont throw it in when its not warranted. Let the serious moments be serious.

I find the whole final battle boring because there is simple no tension and most of the jokey scenes arent funny, even more so on re-watch.

2018 movie ratings out of 10:
