Critic Review - NECN

Without Robert Downey Jr. delivering his witty quips in patented rat-a-tat-tat fashion, The Avengers would largely be a soulless shell of a movie that could be mistaken for a Michael Bay production.

A good review, albeit a kinda backhanded one friend.

I pretty much have to agree with this.

I didn't much like any of the other marvel movies except for the two Iron Man movies. Those were great, watched both in theater. Great humor, but because I sensed it was the kind of humor that's only funny the first time around I haven't watched them a second time yet; still wish to give them some time.

I watched the Avengers just hoping Stark would get as many lines as possible. I was not disappointed, his comic relief was essential to making the movie what it was. Without him, it probably wouldn't have been any good.

The funniest part in the movie was probably when Hulk took Loki by the legs and smashed him around in the middle of his "I'm a god" speech lol. Had to rewatch that scene several times.

I kind of hope Spider Man is in the 2nd Avengers movie, and plays off the new Ultimate Spiderman cartoon's story as well (which is actually much better than I expected, even if on the childish side a little).

This movie felt more like Iron Man 3 with some other superheroes. They played up Robert Downey Jr. as much as they could because he's the biggest actor. It doesn't really make sense that he's on the front of the poster when his character is an alcoholic douchebag.
