Marvel's "The Avengers" is the super-hero movie to end all super-hero movies. Why? Joss Whedon.
Basically with this film you have two camps the ones who love it and the ones who hate it just like most other films. However the ones who say they hated it must realize that 92% Critics and 96% fan reviews go against you. 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. Where the movie works in my opinion 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 the dynamics work hulk v thor great example. Ok Iron Man Tony Stark(Iron Man) a flamboyant millionaire genius doing his own thing (guess what 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.
