The avengers was every bit as good a popcorn flick as I expected. The huge battle sequence in NY was excellent. Acting was solid across the board (Downey stole the movie though). It was well handled and I'm definitely hype for the sequel featuring you know who. Not much substance and some of the humor fell flat for me, but that's not what you pay for with this flick anyhow. I got all the beams, thunderbolts, thwaks, and smashes I paid for and left satisfied.
More like, the dicktaster. This movie sucked. Went to an early screening and was disappointed in Cohen. It seems that without the comedic effect of having real people to be shocked by his antics all that is really left is a bunch of shit, piss, and race jokes shot into your eyeballs at a ceaseless rapidfire without any sense of comedic timing or effectiveness tacked on to the typical fish out of water plot progression. The character never becomes authentically…
