Who would've figured that Whedon would be such a failure at filming the action sequences? Or developing any characters at all?

The more I've thought about this colossol bore of a flick since I saw it last week, the more I keep thinking about how lousy the action sequences are, and how nonexistent the character development is.

I think the mediocre writing can at least partially attributed to there being so many characters in the movie. It's tough to make any of the characters interesting when there are so many of them having to share the screen. At the end of the day, only Hulk and Ironman are worth your time in this movie; Captain America is wasted, and Thor is an absolute joke in this. The other Avengers are mere window dressing.

And let's face it: the bad guy sucks. Loki comes off as exciting as watching paint dry. He's little more than an Orange County tool (an overwhelming sense of entitlement for no apparent reason, ultimately boring as can be). There is zero doubt as to who will prevail in this story. Making Loki such a colossol bore doesn't help things much.

There is little to nothing memorable in the dialog of this film, and there really aren't any memorable set pieces that truly bring the possibility of anything iconic coming from the film.

Maybe the next Avengers movie should only be about a couple of the characters instead of trying to cram them all so unmemorably into one movie.

Yeah; like that's gonna happen.

Finally, someone else understands. {nm} Dave3626 May 13, 02:22

Tempted to call some people here stupid.. idrom May 14, 05:10

It truly is a dull film. Especially the first half hour. But we're in the wrong... It's a hit :-) {nm} JMT-NL May 13, 03:51

Bet you guys will love Battleship {nm} austpow May 13, 08:38

haha... the thing is: I really liked Battleship. Saw it two weeks ago (NL). Superior to Avengers IMHO {nm} JMT-NL May 13, 08:43

Yeah, Avengers was boring and otherwise terrible. Only the climax had any life and it was also the most generic part of the film. {nm} jmr May 13, 09:58

I haven't seen AVNGR, but the number of characters wasn't a barrier to the success of "The fellowship of the ring," for example. {nm} second gary May 13, 06:17

LOTR was also 7.5 hours long theatrically spread over 3 movies. :) {nm} Posting Police 2k May 13, 06:21

Nut monkeys. I keep forgetting to undo that handle. {nm} Paul2k May 13, 06:22

Ah, but that's why I referred only to the first film, which presents, oh, maybe fifteen principal characters. second gary May 13, 06:42

They have their own movies? {nm} PRodQuanta May 13, 08:03

Well, except for Robin Hood and the spy {nm} PRodQuanta May 13, 08:04

DC fan? Bitter much? {nm} kydem May 13, 13:26

Not at all. Bitter in that the movie was very disappointing? Yes. I have nothing to gain or lose from it. But disappointed that it was weak. {nm} goodvibe61 May 13, 22:58

Failure at filming action sequence? How? (some spoilers) nicadmous May 14, 10:56
