Critic Review - Dial M For Movies

The overlong, stale experience barely raises a fast pulse, as the movie quickly stumbles into a standard film structure and doesn't even try to break free.

@ Jonathan Martin The dark knight and the dark knigt rises did focus on batman a lot.See what nolan did with the dark knight instead of focusing only on batman and no one else he decided to give every one a huge part in it.The villian's did not overshadow batman and The dark knight.And for the dark knight rises you must have been paying attention at all in that movie,The movie had a great deal about bruce wayne/batman it focused on him rising up in being batman again while he is in the prison.And for the avengers loki was gay because he was a whiny bitch.All loki is just a pissed off little prick because his daddy did not give him what he wanted.So he just went on a rampage.I also like how nolan gave every one a huge roll in tdk and tdkr including batman because he not only gave batman life he gave every one else a life in it.Like I said in my previous comment's I liked the avengers.I dont think it's nearly as good people say it is.All it is a fun watch.It's not deep or emotional, like nolans bats film's were . the dark knight 10/10 easily tdkr 10/10 easily batman begins 8/10 the avengers 7/10.

Again when you compare this movie to the Dark Knight by saying the Dark Knight series is superior or better 10/10 vs 7/10 is bias to the fact that your a batman fan. If your a Marvel Comics fan your going to take a Marvel story line over the DC story every time but your review won't be accurate as much as it is biased to the fact you like one story(hero) more then you like another. Avengers much more fun and dynamic then the Dark Knight which is well Dark. In that respect both movies accomplish what they set out to do.

Alvin Lloyd Allipin,stop being such a dick.The Dark Knight is a complete film,and the Avengers just as much,but no,you have to go around shoving your Anti-Nolan dick-tionary in every one's nose,so go screw yourself.You're a pathetic retard who hasn't got the least idea about what makes films great or terrible.Light or Dark,who cares?What's good is good,and these 2 movies are the best so go rot in hell.

As Nolanite doesn't really exist and as it was created by anti-nolans ( Dick head Alvin for example),I propose the opposite term,Whendonite,for fanboys who overrate the avengers as not just a great movie,but as the beat CMB ever,which TDK truly is.Seems fair,don't it?But surely that dickhead wont agree,so it may be pointless.

Basically with this film (like most films) you have two camps the ones who love it and the ones who hate it. However the ones who say they hated it must realize that 92% Critics and 96% fan reviews go against you. The trick is to go a little deeper and try and understand how and why most people like to love the film while a small majority think its a piece of crap. Now some of the haters your reviews aren't even close to being on point just a bunch of this movie sucks blah blah blah. In my opinion where the movie works is in the simplicity of it. For example if you pick up an Avengers comic book in a major story arc you will basically get what this movie accomplishes high action mixed in with some drama and comedic interludes. It embodies what a good superhero comic is all about and that is in the dynamics of the characters and how accurate they are one that really works in this film is between hulk vs. thor a great example not only is there a sense of wow but the dynamic becomes funny and fun by the end of the movie. Ok Tony Stark(Iron Man) a flamboyant millionaire genius doing his own thing so he isn't so very Dark like Bruce Wayne but he has some great toys and much more of a sense of humor (just like the comic book) the formula is true to form. The other critics seem to be trying to compare this to the Dark Knight which in my opinion is also a good movie but pretty much is just an extension of the whole Dark Knight series. So thats my 2 cent if you hate this movie you are in a very vocal yet large minority. That either put this movie down because you love another comic or simply don't get the genre. You certainly deserve getting some Hulk Smash for being so vocal and vulgar towards what I consider to be a very fun and fresh franchise and not only that I am in the 9.5 to your 1 in with those who share similar thoughts about the film.

So this guy did'nt like "The Avengers", that's cool because he has an opinion and he's entitled to it. That being said a 1/5 score really, what's he high on haha. Dial 'M' For Movies, how about Dial 'G' For Garbage, because that's what this critic and his review are.

"barely raises a fast pulse" - He must have a pacemaker or something because my pulse was running high the entire time.

I saw the same thing, the plot starts very well but then it falls down and becomes boring until the end when you see somehting that you have already watched in somewhere else.
