The Avengers 3D – The Review

Eh.

That’s pretty much it. Perhaps I expected too much after all the hype. Perhaps it’s because it seemed to be a stilted movie with boring dialogue which superimposed visuals for 3D effect over a good screenplay, which creates little emotion, as happens with many 3D movies. It becomes more about explosions and violence and mayhem simply for the sake of explosions and violence and mayhem.

It also seemed to mostly be the next Ironman movie. Captain America, the Hulk, etc, tended to be more of supporting characters. Scarlett Johansson was pouty and….that’s about it. I kept expecting Samuel L. Jackson to deliver lines from Revenge Of The Sith. I really did not like the Captain America line about the stars and stripes being outdated. Surprisingly, Joss Whedon turned in a rather emotionless movie.

Is it worth seeing? Yeah, the afternoon matinee. Perhaps it would be better to see in 2D. Remember, I wasn’t particularly pleased with Avatar in 3D, but, I really like that movie on ye olde Blu-ray player. 6 out of 10 crossbones.

    I always knew you were a racist Christian al-Queda militant double-agent!!!

    I loved the movie. I saw it as just a good popcorn movie that was a continuation of all the others. Granted, it was a bit weak in writing and some of the characters were shallow……

    but….

    I like where they finally showed Capt. America finally had some super-type powers. That Iron Man machine could actually get hurt. That Hulk is seen as a competing entity within Banner and had a personality all his own.

    I did not like the presentation of LOKI. He was a real weak and unimposing character. I felt no evil. I felt no danger from him. His only power was that he could change his appearance. oooooo

    I did like the portal idea and the monsters. Great idea. But, then to have them die like robots when the “mothership” was destroyed? COME ON!!!??!?

    Just got back from seeing the movie in IMAX 3D.

    Could have done without the 3D, but the imax big screen and sound really added punch to it. I still crack up at the Hulk.

    HULK SMASH!

    Still don’t get the aliens-who-were-creatures-but-then-are-robots thing.

    Ending credit extras really make the movie too.
