Ultimate Avengers 1 is a movie, while flawed, still manages to have more characterization than this film. The biggest problem with the first movie was how little things were explored. I mean, don't get me wrong the characters are likable, even Giant Man, the whiney prick of a superhero HE is, actually has some character development here. But what strikes me as strange is that even though he's the most developed character, the movie is about Black Panther, who's powers I STILL don't understand to this day. This movie is entertaining, but it's got problems flowing out the ass end of the Hulk.
Could someone please explain to me why this African culture has giant invulnerable alien cannon shooter, FUCK YOU, turrets, yet they still use spears and arrows? I mean to their credit the spears and arrows WORK but that's only because everyone who gets taken down by them, is a bit of a moron. Some unknown alien, and Giant Man, see? Told ya, unknown grunts are always morons in comic stories, and Giant Man has proven before, he's just one big herp derp.
Like the first movie this one has it's moments, but it has way fewer moments, and Captain America's little WW2 to now Crisis was explored better in the first film, and gave him closure, here...I don't understand it, at all. It's just kinda randomly shoved in there.
I guess he's the focus because he was the main character in the last movie, and don't get me wrong I love Captain America, but let's face it, he's already been developed, why not spend more time focusing on Thor and his act of defying his father to save the human race from alien annihilation? They dedicate all of two scenes to that, and that sub-plot NEVER gets any closure, da fuq broski? Da fuq?
This movie is one I can't really see myself recommending outside of the casual "meh, if you liked the first one, I guess you could watch this one, if only out of pure curiosity."
Yep, it's one of those "only watch if you're curious" movies, other than that, just go watch the live action Marvel movies...well except Ghost Rider, that one can sit and spin.
