Avengers Assemble!

May 1, 2012

Overall I thought this film was highly entertaining and the best superhero movie this year and it’s certainly going to give dark knight rises a run for its money. However in the interest of fun and laziness I’m going to give the good and the bad in point form. Let me stress that the bad are all minor quibbles and the good stuff far outweighs it…and I mean far! Spoilers beware!


  1. Hulk – best depiction ever.
  2. Black Widow fight scenes.
  3. Joss Whedon – Really brought something fresh and new to the genre
  4. The jokes – see Joss Whedon
  5. Tom Hiddleton – made a great villain


  1. Avengers Assemble! – WTF! Why didn’t they just call it The Avengers. Seriously I mean we all know its The Avengers! What you think Steed is going to make an appearance in a Bowler hat?
  2. Hawkeye – He was really underwritten and didn’t have much to do. Shame cause he is one of my favs
  3. Aliens – They were a bit underwhelming and not really well developed.
  4. More Nick Fury – It would have been nice if Samuel L Jackson had said “Enough is enough! I have had it with these motherfucking superheroes on this motherfucking Helicarrier!” I would have paid double to hear that.
