Visuals are low-budget but the comedic lines make up for it. Korg had me in stitches.
******** SPOILERS AHEAD *************
The dialogue is outstanding, even fuller of subtext than usual, and stunning action sequences like the airport fight carried by the charm of the newly introduced Peter Parker and Ant Man, but the plot is still a little thin.
The framing of Bucky and Stark's parents' death seems so temporary. The true argument between Captain America and Iron Man, about supervision, seems mature for the Marvel movies, but still doesn't reach the depth of the fundamental moral divide between Professor X and Magneto.
Cool fantasy sorcery and some of the best special effects I've ever seen in a movie. Wasn't expecting to like this as much as I did, but this is one of the best lone superhero movies! I read a great post by K.M. Weiland about why the character development wasn't as good as it should've been – Stephen Strange's interpersonal relationships never really evolve in the story, but I guess I don't expect much in the way of char development from superhero movies.
Would be 1 star without Loki's humour. The mid-movie escape + battle scene was the only part worth watching.
"Well done. You just decapitated your grandfather."
"Let's steal the biggest, most obvious ship in the universe and escape in that. Flying around the city, smashing into everything in sight so everyone can see us. It's brilliant Thor, it's truly brilliant!" [Thor shoves him out of the ship]
"You lied to me. I'm impressed."
The addition of Scarlett Johansson as the opposite pole to the straight Captain really worked to spark chemistry in this movie that the first Captain America lacked. Plot and action were decent too, as were Anthony Mackie and the Winter Soldier.
