    The Avengers is pure unadulterated comic book goodness on film. The ying to TDK trilogys yang in the best way possible. It has such energy and confidence it's hard not to fall in love with it.

    The best superhero film ever made next to TDK trilogy. They are equals.

    Almost every single character in the film has an arc.

    I just watched The Avengers again for the first time since I saw it in the theater and I came out of it feeling less then satisfied the second time around.

    I don't know, I just didn't have any emotional connection to the characters at all, so I didn't really feel like any of it meant anything. There's was really no depth to the character interactions, it was all just service level. The whole "they are such a dysfunctional team that needs to learn how to work together" was so flimsy to me and it didn't come that the characters were nuanced or had real emotional depth, they were just a-hole's to each other.

    I think the prior origin movies were also to blame, especially with Captain American and Thor. They didn't really do a good job of providing that connection or depth to the characters stories they seemed like they were just leading up to The Avengers.

    I don't know, maybe it may also be because I didn't really read these characters comics when I was younger. I was strictly an X-Men fan, so I may also be comparing it to that, especially First Class which I loved the relationships the characters had with each other - especially Xavier, Erik and Mystique. The connection between them, and the other characters in that movie, were just there and just so strong and visceral.

    You aren't the minority. I consider it the best as well. Well, tied with TDK trilogy.

    The phase you're in is called adulthood :funny:

    I just had it on for around half hour and feel the same. Some okay comedy and great action does not alone make a great movie.

    Agreed :up:

    There felt to be no story just a plot an very little character development. I felt no connection or care for them. Hate how Stark insulted Cap the whole movie then said 'he lives up to the legend'. How Loki was bad, just because. The comedy was just one-liners and mostly not funny after the first viewing.
    The effects were great as was the cast, but other than that there was nothing "great".

    Though i enjoyed those solo movies, they had story and motivation for the characters.

    It's definitely one of my favorite CBM, too. I don't think its my favorite, but it's up there in the top 5 for sure. I think I'll watch it later tonight on Netflix. ;)

    All hail The Avengers... Best Comic Book movie Ever....
    I know Xmen DoFP is out, and its an amazing movie.....lets not forget the build up to The Avengers....and the overall impact it made on the Comic Book Movie Genre.....you have DC scrambling to find and match a kind of universe that Marvel made.....it took alot of character development from the other movies to make this the best film ever in my opinion.....

    The best part about the Marvel movies are the characters. The audience in general have really connected to them on an emotional level. I really don't understand how anybody can claim that the characters don't have depth.

    I've noticed, since X-Men DOFP came out, people have all of a sudden been dissing Avengers to up X-Men's whatever. I don't get it. If someone enjoys something, why do they feel as if they have to put something else down to make the other thing more superior or whatever?

    Its trolling 101. I think it is on the first page of the manual. Step 1 Make random comments on alternate comic book property forums to keep up with production. Step 2 Rate movie (not too low, but not too high either). Step 3 wait for release of your favorite comic book movie. Step 4 return to previous said forums and trash talk them during your movies release to give your property the most "cred" or "buzz".

    As much as I loved Days of Future Past, I still think The Avengers is the better film. Oops. :cwink:

    Sure, the story in The Avengers isn't complex, but that's because it needed to keep things more simple for the team's first outing. The first Avengers film did exactly what it should have done: focus on the team up, and show how these strong and flawed personalities come together to fight the bigger evil. The sequels can now get into the juicy stuff in terms of the plot.

    It has been two years, and The Avengers is still among my most-favorite comic book movies. You can just tell how much fun and glee was put into making it. If there was ever a movie to make me feel like a kid again, it's this one. I see this movie as a celebration of comic books and superheroes, and that makes me happy!
