It looked like it was going somewhere... and then it didn't. Doesn't really explain what happened to the characters that appeared in the beginning. I wasted perfectly good money that could of been used to buy a nice top to watch this pile of wank.
Zack Snyder is one of my favourite directors as he tries to follow the comics as close as he can. This is why I love Watchmen so much. The extended edition is oh so close to the graphic novel (barring the ending, which I wish was the same as the book) and I loved every second of it. The cast looked spitting image of the characters and there's hardly a bad thing to say about this film.
It has such a great mixture of seriousness, action and comedy. All of the actors played their parts so well. My favourite thing about The Avengers is that Loki had a moment with each of the heroes, trying to break them. I've seen this twice in the cinema and I just want to carry on watching it. I can't wait for it's DVD/Blu-ray release!
