I'm not looking to start a fight or anything, everyone is of course entitled to their own preferences, I'm just curious about how others feel the two films stack up against each other.
I think it's because some people feel as though IM3 wasn't executed so well whereas Cap 2 was. I wouldn't say they are of the same quality. I love IM3 and think the concept is very interesting but I don't think it was executed as well as Cap 2 was.
