Well, I knew I was going to like Thor. As a Dungeons and Dragons DM and player, Thor was always one of the I would pick for my character providing it lined up right. His ability and powers are definitely worth watching.
I wasn't sure if I was going to like Captain America, but knew I was going to enjoy the Iron Man series. However, I liked Captain America but never followed the comic.
Can't Wait. Have booked to see the movie this Weekend. My friend saw it this week ( It was out in UK last Friday) and loved it. Apparently a good mix of action, wisecracks, drama and spectacle. I do like director Joss Whedon's prior work with ensemble cast (Serenity.
I am crushed. I thought this referred to a film relating to the cult TV series "The Avengers", with Patrick McNee as John Steed and Diana Rigg as Mrs Peel. One of the best TV series ever in its original form. As with so many things though, it went through further versions with far inferior actors.
I've watched it twice already xD It's brilliant if you ask me, so much better than I ever expected! It fun, great effects (I even ducked one time, when I watched it in 3D), and the actors are great. Exceeds the "original" movies with each character by a mile.
Watched it yesterday and am very impressed. It's hard to juggle multiple characters and give them all a moment to shine. Whedon has done just that. The screenplay is tight and loyal to fanbase, the acting is superb, the humor is outstanding ( Tony stark gets some of the best lines but others aren't far behind), The effects were so cool even my CGI fatigued eyes widened at 'Hulk Smash' and the flying 'SHIELD HQ'. ILM have done a spectacular job. The Female characters are usually sidelined but Scarlett's Black Widow is pure kick ass.
What makes it work is the whole package of how Marvel have cannily set up this story over the past half a dozen movies and Joss Whedon has tied all the threads together is one wonderful, awesome tapestry. Bring on the sequel, I say!
Great film and I enjoyed, the only thing I didn't like is when the Hulk was throwing the bad guy back and forth like a rag doll. A little to violent for me; but apparently the kids didn't think it was that bad. lolo
In some countrys the new Captain America :the 1st Avenger movie will simply be called The 1st Avenger. This is retarded, I know were not the worlds favorite people but dont change a characters title!!! This is many ways...
