Default Re: Too much action?

too much action? In MOS...

I dont think so, the tone and the stakes setup through the narrative of the film justifies the scale of the action.

Having just watched Thor 2 I still get the same feeling that the Marvel universe is a fun place where heroes get to be heroic in a sanitized family friendly way that we can all enjoy. DC films on the other hand are fun in their own regard but the tone is definitely darker and the actions of its heroes and villains create a more palpable feeling of consequence. Its hard to quantify but DC films have tension where the villains in Marvel feel as if they exist merely to be vanquished..

I enjoy both and feel the tones fit their respective universe better.
