Shockingly, yes, I actually liked this one.
I was expecting a cluster fuck with heroes fighting for screen time more than fighting the bad guys!
It was over the top super hero action with all the characters getting to strut their stuff against equally over the top forces of evil.
After all the build up, I was impressed that they managed to bring it together into a film that lived up to the ludicrous amount of hype (about 5 or 6 movies to lead up to this one!)
This one gets my Hark seal of approval.

A couple of faults I will raise....
The camera's focus on Black Widows rear end got a bit embarrassing...as did he failure to have a Russian accent.

Also it was very CGI heavy, which is always a negative. But with such super powered goings on, I don't think that was avoidable.

Doesn't she primarily use firearms, and wear a skin-tight suit? I know that part of the "superhero" thing is that the vast majority of them wear bodysuits or leotards that leave little to the imagination, but if you're going to be carrying around a Glock as your primary means of stomping evil, I would suggest wearing a webbing belt capable of carrying a few extra magazines, or at least clothing with pockets. More magazines would be especially important since she's armed with a sub-compact pistol, and the magazine capacity of Glock sub-compacts is usually 10-12 rounds.

She's the only woman who works with an Aryan in a figure skating costume, a Norse god, and a drunk in bright red power armor, and she herself wears a tight black bodysuit, and openly packs heat. Obviously subtlety is not an issue, so I don't see why she can't just carry a full-frame pistol with a longer (more accurate) barrel, and a magazine capacity twice that of her little rinky-dink pocket-pistol.

Well if you thought her super powers (small weedy pistol and ass) are not that impressive, how do you think Hawkeye feels?
His power is having a bow!
That's a super power that can out done by a fucking musket!

Scarlett Johansson does have a nice ass though...

He better be something impossibly good with that bow of his, otherwise he's at a distinct disadvantage against anyone with a rifle. The only bows capable of getting an arrow to the same distances as firearms are usually close to the height of a man.

I am not disputing the ladies rear end credentials.
I just think some of the scenes were filmed in such a way as to make it rather too much of the focus.

There is a bit where she goes to speak to the baddie in prison and her butt seems to be the main focus of proceedings as far as the director is concerned.
It is a bit off putting when they are doing an otherwise serious scene!

That's pretty harsh. I loved Stalker, but I don't think I'd fight someone to the death over that film.

I saw the movie with a friend who wasn't at all a comic book geek. He liked it. The movie itself did it's job for people non familiar with the Canon.

This is a movie I am definitely going to buy when it comes out. If only the the Hulk's awesome scenes in the third act.

Though the whole damn movie never bored me. And that is saying something.
