Great

I think that this movie was absolutely ecxelent, it is so great

Awesome

Joss Whedon really did a great job of directing this film, and the superheroes were superb! Great action, too!

Joss Whedon is a Genius

I may be biased as a huge Joss fan, but I thought he did a great job with this movie. I'm not a big comic books person, so I'm sure there are people who will see things I didn't and think plot points were missed, but I had a lot of fun with this one. There was a lot of trademark Joss humor, and the special effects were terrific.
This is a fun comic book Marvel franchise extraveganza.

Exceeds Expectations

I couldn't agree less with AMP35. This movie was spectacular. With most of the Avengers (and the villain) already familiar to us from their various intro films we get to jump right into the action. The non-action-scene interactions between the Avengers are classic Joss Whedon banter writ large. There is plenty of bombast, action, and whatnot, but the characters also feel genuine and identifiable. There hasn't been a super-hero movie this good since the first Toby McGuire Spider Man. If you like Marvel, or comics, or fun of any kind, you must not miss this movie.

Green Monster (hero)

I didn't like the beginning but as the story unfolded bit by bit, I starting to enjoy.
Greatest surprise, I was wondering where is the green monster, how did he fit into the team,
and how did he get invited and then, he just all of a sudden 'transformed'.

Marvel-ous?

Much havoc ensues as The Avengers protect our planet. The story and humor in this movie are just strong enough to offset the excessive smashing and bashing and busting of glass. Grade: B+

Joss Whedon dropped the ball.

I hoped for a lot when I watched this movie, maybe my expectations were too high. Regardless I felt slighted at the end of this movie. Every plot point is put in there so that they can show off fancy visual effect. It felt more like a Transformers movie where everyone argues how they'll be the one to save the planet then they realize they need each other and start to work together. I can tell you as a huge fan of action movies as well as comic books that this movie that this movie perpetuates why the comic book genre of movies is not as respected. Marvel had some great things going with Iron Man but has dropped the ball on subsequent movies since. I know a lot of people will enjoy this movie and they should because it is a fun movie. However to me it was like eating the frosting without the cake. There just wasn't any substance to it.
