    Saw it in Imax. And it was what it is suppose to be.

    Not to much story, but still a plot. A small one, but enough.

    Over the top action but not so much that it hurts and you want to cry.

    Only one set of boobies and she keeps her clothes on.

    Special effects-budget is adequate.

    Actors perform as needed.

    So yes, this one is you can see and pay for. A pity to watch it on TV. This is a cinema film.

    Well worth watching. It revolutionizes comic relief in action movies. In Avengers the comic relief is actually funny without being silly.

    I saw it in 3d and I really do not see the point. It was done well but it just doesn't do anything for me. Having to wear silly glasses and having to strain my eyes is a real bother. My biggest peeve is that I lose suspense when I see some cool 3d effect. I find myself tracking 3d instead of losing myself in the movie.

    Do she and that Hawkeye dude have any super powers? I never understood how you could expect regular people to really contribute anything meaningful to a group that has a god and a giant monster.

    LKD don't do 3D. I get headaches from it.

    Hawkeye has the skills to hold his own even among those with super powers. Kinda like Batman. Same thing with Black Widow. She has tech as well, IIRC. In the old Marvel Super Heroes role playing game, they were both classified as "Hi-Tech Wonders". I think it shows big nuts to go up against the likes of Loki, Ultron, Kang, Graviton, and such with nothing more than skill, will, and some gadgets.

    I've seen the movie twice now and OMFGOMFGOMFGOMFG!!!!! just about sums it up for me. I intend to see it several times more and not just because of Hawkeye's arms or the posterior department of the Widow & Captain America ;)

    Seriously, I don't remember the last time a film made me laugh, cry, and scream in the cinema like Avengers did. I've been completely overwhelmed.

    Yes, exactly. Batman is an utter toad compared to Superman. And no amount of positive attitude or gadgetry will make you prevail against an immortal/monster/most-uber-being-of-all-existence, LKD. ;)

    Logically, that is true. Yet in the comics and cartoons, batman faces down fricking Darkseid. Hawkeye has been an integral member of teams that have taken down some of the toughest enemies in the Marvel Universe.

    In other words, the comics aren't exactly logical. I hope that observation doesn't shatter anyone's world view.
