Saw The Avengers. It had some good action and a few good laughs. But, ultimately, I felt like I had seen it already. There's been so many of these comic book movies, and they all seem to take place in New York. I mean...damn, how many times can one city be torn up, only to look pristine in the next comic film? Go destroy LA, Chicago or Houston already and leave NYC alone!
The only character I truly loved in the movie was Iron Man because RDJ plays it absolutely perfect. I also loved Scarlett's ass. Twas amazing on the gigantic screen. Her character was decently good, as was Captain America. Hulk was...Hulk. Thor I enjoyed, even though I had never seen his feature film. I'd rank Hemsworth second behind RDJ in this film. I'm not a huge Samuel L Jackson fan, because his "bad-ass-ness" is overrated. But he was pretty good as Nick Fury. A good role for him.

Speaking of Iron Man, I shook my head at the sight of him being beaten up by the aliens, while Captain America and his shield beat the crap out of them. The enemy was made to look so menacing and bad-ass, yet some guy with an A on his head tears them apart easily? Meanwhile, the Hulk can take down the gigantic alien creature pretty easily, yet Thor takes it to him? Kind of uneven there.
I was entertained by the movie, but it didn't leave an impact on me like the original Spider Man (remember when Toby Maguire was Spider Man? ) or the first Iron Man. Those movies told great tales and left me wanting more. My test is: when I see the film, do I immediately think I can't wait for this to come out on DVD/Blu-Ray! ? The afore-mentioned movies I bought on day one. The Avengers? I might pick it up the week it comes out. Is it life-or-death if I do? No.
As for the scene after the credits

Everyone made this out to be a "must-see" moment. Eating food in a diner for 30 seconds. Really?
you're a failure.
