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.
