For some time itInspired by it's score I gave it a spin. And honestly - I want my time back. This movie just doesn't add up in any way.. For some time it tries to be serious and just when you start to get the feeling that there will be a moral at the end or just a bit of sense in it.. the blue thing pops up. And it goes completely bananas.Unfortunately, not in a good way. It's acted rather poorly, the script doesn't make any sense and the whole thing looks like it was written in the same way the whole thing acts out - completely drunk.
If you want a good Pegg move - go see Paul.… Expand
Average User Score: 7.9May 15, 2012Marvel's The Avengers is a fun movie. It's a +2hrs ride full of capes, suits and explosions. Just the type of entertainment you expect for theMarvel's The Avengers is a fun movie. It's a +2hrs ride full of capes, suits and explosions. Just the type of entertainment you expect for the summer. It's not a deep movie, it's rather the opposite. The focus was on the Avengers coming together. While it was cliche usually, I enjoyed it. I knew what to expect, yet I watched it with pleasure. I think that's the point of such movies. You go to the cinema not expecting a masterpiece, but a good funride. We're presented with the obvious mid-movie crisis between the heroes and then the big fight with all of them fighting together. Cliche, but it's still nice to see Hulk alongside Iron Man :)
Whedon and his cast deliver. Most of it, at least.
The movie is stolen by Ruffalo's Hulk. Peroid. He gets the funniest moments, with Thor coming in second. Suprisingly - Tony Stark (Downey Jr.) is only trying to be funny. I didn't laugh at any of his jokes and sometimes even felt a bit irritated.
Hiddleston's Loki is believeable, while Evans is a complete and utter mistake. I just can't bring myself to liking this version of Captain America. Evans looks and acts in this movie like a dumbed-down 25 y.o. with muscles bigger than Thor's. Not my pair of shoes.
Renner steals the dumbest scenes in the movie with his funny faces and acting seriously, while doing stupid things. The felt... unnecessary. Both of them, really. Well no. Black Widow served a purpose. As opposed to Cobie Smoulder's Maria Hill. If she was supposed to be the eyecandy, she surely didn't catch my eye.
Other major flaw is the forced 3D. My cinema didn't offer me the choice between 2D and 3D. And I regret that, because I watched about 30% of the movie with glasses off. It doesn't improve the experience, but on the contrary - makes the faster paced fight scenes blurry and hard to watch.
Whedon's humour is clearly visible throughout the whole thing and is a major strength of the movie itself. And again - Hulk steals it. Stark tries to be funny, but on majority of occasions fails.
I left the movie satisfied with the outcome. There were superheroes, big fights, laughs and Johansson in spandex (unfortunately 3D instead of pleasing the male audience did the opposite, blurred everything in closeups :( ).
If you wanted a movie with tons of your beloved comic heroes doing good, you get better. You get a well paced and executed picture, which clearly sets up the ground for sequels. And I, for sure, will be visting a cinema nearby to see it. Just as I will go to Iron Man 3 and Thor 2.
I will not go to Captain America 2, because Chris Evans is NOT my Captain America and at the same time is the biggest flaw of The Avengers. Pity, but we get Hulk, Iron Man and Thor to cover him up. And that's enough for me.
Assemble in a theatre near you and enjoy. As did I.… Expand

A solid piece of entertainment. I'm definitely not in love with it, but I'd go for a second date for sure. All actors live up to their names, the plot keeps you interested for the whole time. Some moments and dialogues are cliche and too shallow, but as a package - it totally works.
Back to the actors - I have a problem with Clooney and Gosling. I like them, I really do. But I just get the feeling that they are great at playing every part the same way.
It's entertaining, but hardly surprising or astonishing. That's why it's only a 7.… Expand
Average User Score: 6.0Jan 30, 2012I must say. It was a challenge to make a new & refreshing formula boring at the end of its third installment. While the first sequel coveredI must say. It was a challenge to make a new & refreshing formula boring at the end of its third installment. While the first sequel covered some new ground, the third does nothing new. I admit it, I was curious about the way all of this started. The problem I have with PE3 is that it focused on the same plain dumb moments during the movie, when they stop watching the footage and argue (watch it! no! it's stupid, there's nothing to talk about. there are no ghost. stop the cameras!).
Doing that once is okay - people are people and I can understand such behavior. But 3 times in a row? Please...
The actors do their job well, the visuals are on par, but the story doesn't catch up. As stated before, the whole explanation (if you could call it that) took no more than a minute and was really shallow. I guess now we can expect part 4, which will concentrate on the actions from the movies finale.
To wrap things up - if you are new to the series, give it a shot. It would be actually easier to watch the trilogy from the end. If you've seen the first two movies, you'll probably end up dissapointed with the movie and plot as a whole. There are some moments worth seeing. It's just a bit sad, that they don't get enough attention from the plot.… Expand
Average User Score: 8.4Dec 21, 2011"A brother's love is... a brother's love". A stupid sentence from "Gone in 60 seconds" comes in suprisingly well for this movie. It's a film"A brother's love is... a brother's love". A stupid sentence from "Gone in 60 seconds" comes in suprisingly well for this movie. It's a film that, based on it's premises, should be a complete cliche. And it is. But...but! It builds on it. What you expect to be a cliche, comes as a well served emotional moment.
From almost the start you know how it will end. And it does. And I don't mind it.
It's just like looking at a kitten at YT. You know it's probably gonna be cute and it bores you. But when you watch the clip you go "mom, please".
The same goes for this movie.
The actors excel, each and every one. You don't get to hear the whole story or see them do what you expect. The brother's meeting should be about "I had problems", "well, i have problems, too".
No. They don't say it. They define where they are now. They don't exchange problems. They keep 'em to themselves. While you know it well, the keep them to themselves. And that's what makes this film worth watching.
I kept my fists closed even if I knew what was going to happen. And that's a great thing for me, especially. This is the best movie I've seen this year.
Nick Nolte has established himself in my eyes as one of the best old generation actors now (above and beyond De Niro or Pacino, seriously!) and Hard on the newbies side. Joel Edgerton provides as well, while Jennifer Morrison is no longer irritation as in House M.D. Kudos for all the cast. And I mean ALL.
The whole thing is a bit long, but trust me... it's worth the investment.
Especially... when you have a brother...… Expand

Gosling's acting isn't that astonishing to me (althrough I like his other performances), the plot is inconsistent and overally I find this movie somewhere in the middle, with a few interesting moments.
I kept on sitting and waiting for the movie to start. And then the credits rolled...
The problem I had with 'Drive', along with many other movies is that the trailer tells the whole story. There's nothing more to unfold than what we can see before sitting in the theatre. And that's just not enough for me.… Expand

Those were the three things in my head when the credits rolled (BTW the best part of the movie, IMHO).
The story, character decisions are completely senseless. Jason Statham "acts" and looks the same as in almost every previous movie he appeared in; De Niro has something of 45 seconds of screen time; as opposed to the previous two, Oven manages to defend his role; the characters are generally shallow; handguns tend to fire something around 30 rounds per clip... The list is long. There are that many pros for this movie to make it entertaining. That's too bad, because the round-up of actors was something of a good promise for this one. What we recieved is yet another moneymaker...for the actors.… Expand
