I was hesitant to see this as I didn’t think the makers could pull off that many superheroes in one film. I should preface by saying I love Iron Man, not so much the follow-up and loved Captain America even more. But as I say, it would be difficult to pull this off.
With all the different characters having their own individual issues and demons, the film relies heavily on humour to trot this film out and after Thor’s joke about the evil brother taking -over-the-world, Loki, being adopted; all the jokes were predictable, unless you’re twelve years old. 12-year-old boys of course are the core market for this film but I’m disappointed that unlike Iron Man and especially Captain America, it was that predictable and didn’t bring out the kid in me that those did.
I would have rather a part two on Captain America (which I believe is coming), with maybe one or two heroes and villains featured.
I did laugh at times but really I was waiting for all the heroes to come out and save the world together. If like me you want that too, I’d wait and just go and see the last 20-30 minutes of this 143 minute feature (yes really!).
