On Wednesday night Charlotte and I went to see the Avengers Assemble. Charlotte slept through it. I thought it was ok. I was probably at a disadvantage though not having seen any of the previous films, except for Thor, which I really don’t remember much about.
said that, the characters were superb, especially Iron Man. Captain
America was a bit of a wet sidekick, but I guess that was intentional.
Unfortunately it lacked quite a bit of story and the tragedy wasn’t
really tragic, but I suspect it would have been if I knew more of the
background story to the characters. Loki was magnificent throughout,
except when he goaded the Hulk to produce one of the funniest moments of
the film. I did come away asking myself if I’d trust a former teammate
who had been so easily turned to the dark side and then turned back just
by getting thumped in the face.
My next task is to finish watching all of the films that came before; before watching it again (on DVD).
