I was invited to a private screening. I didn't really have much expectation, but figured it would be action packed and entertaining. It was awesome! 9/10

Definitely a must see in the theaters.

Is that a Glock 30 that Scarlett Johansson is holding in the
movie trailer that's being shown on TV?

Does she use it in the movie?

It's tough to pay attention what she's holding in her hand, I was focused on other things :cool:

There is a ton of action and lots of different firearms in the movie.

Glock 19 I think. Had to stop the previews a few times as I kept getting distracted.

Oh man I am so looking forward to this movie. Oddly, I didn't like many of the individual superhero movies:

Captain America? Meh...
Iron Man? Boring...
Hulk? Seriously?
Thor? I liked it a lot.

But the previews for this one are....stimulating. I'm so glad the reviewers are saying it's not 'Transformers' kid stuff.

I agree. I wasn't a huge fan of any of the individual movies, but this movie was easily twice as good as any of the others.

In this movie
Captain America-still kind of boring. Probably my least favorite
Iron Man-funny as all heck. Better than his previous two roles
Hulk-His character takes a while to develop, but once he does- sir crush a lot
Thor-Plays a good part. I actually like his original move too
Scarlett Jo-:wow::wow::wow:

I found The Avengers a must see action movie, also don't leave after the ending, just keep sitting for a bit.

I missed it the first time i saw it,

The movies where each character was "introduced" were very different imho.

Iron man 1 & 2 were just "great" movies if you like tony stark as a flamboyant biljonaire playboy, funny as hell and kick-ass.

Captain America was well, fine as an action movie but not that great imho, Hellboy i liked better in that perspective.

Hulk, well, there were 3 movies actually here. 1 very lame and the other 2 were actually "connected" as part 1 and 2 wich were good imho.

Thor was a good movie too imho,

I did find Watchmen utterly boring though, watched it 4 times and only the last time i got myself to just see through the whole movie without falling asleep or stopping it.

About scarlet johansson: She is very great to look at...... I do think however, incontrary to imdb, she holds a G30 or G27, maybe even the G29? (10mm sc frame) and the G26. I thought to see 2 different models but that's just me.

I do like to see "another" standalone movie where Hawkeye and the black widow are "explained" though.

At first i thought i missed something and thought the movie were a girl is saved by a government program from the chair to run as a hitwoman where eventually she deceives her mentor and he "kills" her in the end.

Why does a "superhero" need a run-of-the-mill pistol?

Seriously, though?

I have no background with any of these characters besides what I've already seen on the big screen.

I've been hearing stuff about S.H.I.E.L.D. and SLJ's character, but I know nothing about any of it.

So...superhero...pistol... I don't get it. :dunno:

Natalia "Natasha" Alianovna Romanova, known as the Black Widow, is not a superhero. She is more of a super secret spy agent for S.H.I.E.L.D. Which is why she carries guns.

Good to hear. We have a bunch of dudes at work who can't wait till the general screening occurs.

I really like Black Widow's signature take down move... her thighs on your neck just before you get slammed on the deck. However, racking the glock 26 in light of the company of the other avengers looked a bit silly in the trailers though.

Government treatments have slowed her aging, augmented her immune system and enhanced her physical durability.
Weapons
Black Widow customarily wears two bracelets equipped to discharge the "widow’s bite," high-frequency electrostatic bolts of up to 30,000 volts, capable of stunning even a superhuman opponent at a range of at least 20 feet, shoot tear gas cartridges and act as a radio transmitter. The bracelets’ various functions are activated by galvanic sensors keyed to Black Widow’s wrist musculature. At times she carries plastic explosive discs equivalent to 4 pounds of TNT in her belt and uses automatic weapons and/or combat knives as necessary.

I really hated Thor comics as a kid. And somehow, when you bought the multi-pack at the supermarket, you got one Spiderman and 8 Thor's. GRRRRRR!!!!

I still say the look like G36s, at least in that pic it does (w/ a Pearce mag extension).


Looks to long to be a G26/27.

Has a Gen 2 two piece recoil guide rod assembly, so it can't be a G19.

Slide and frame look too thin to be a G30/29.


Have to check Pearce's web site (b/c those sure look like Pearce extensions to me) to see if they may a +0 extension like that for the 36, I know they make one like that for the 26/27 and the 30/29).

Oh the crying and *****ing that went on when he was named as director over at aintitcool. I love Joss Whedon's stuff (Buffy movie, Buffy series, Angel, Firefly), but he does have a distictive style that detracts from the material at times. I was worried.

He kicked total ass on this flick. No wait, film. This is the first film in a long time that I will be seeing more than twice in the cineplex.

One question, I have not seen the other independent super hero movies, Thor and Captain America but have seen the Iron mans so I don't understand the Captain America giving Fury the money thing, I hate it when the theatre is laughing and I don't get it...

Outstanding flick which never made me bored and even raised a few chuckles. CGI was the best yet for the Hulk; all the other movie attempts totally sucked.

Funny. I thought Captain America and Hulk were good, both Iron Man films great, and Thor completely ridiculous. It was cast well but Natalie Portman's character added absolutely nothing to the film.

Hulk was horrible. Incredible Hulk was good, but left something to be desired. Mark Ruffalo was the best version of Bruce Banner we've seen in a movie so far. I don't know if they'll be willing to try a third stand-alone Hulk movie, but I really hope they let him give it a shot.

The character of Jane Foster is PIVOTAL in the Thor stories. She's really the only reason he gives a damn about protecting Earth. But I do agree that - much as I love her as an actress - Natalie Portman was the wrong choice. I really feel she turns in different levels of performance depending on how much she cares about the project. Look Black Swan for instance.

Definitely a subcompact. I think it was a 26. I found myself wondering why she didn't have at least full sized pistols (G20's) for the final battle. I mean concealment wasn't an issue with her thigh holsters. She definitely seemed to be a bit undergunned. I did notice her reloading once.

And yes, the movie rocked. Well worth the wait.

I really liked the easter egg at the end. There were only a few people who waited for it in the theater I was at today. The cleanup crew liked it, one of them said to me, "I never get tired of it."

Not to give a spoiler, but there is a sceen near the end with Hulk and Loki that is pure Whedon. Think about the end of the train robbery episode of Firefly where Claw refuses to taking the money back to Mishka. Definitely the same mind was behind both scenes.

Nice job with the spoilers. Ever consider that the fact you didn't expect what happened was a big part of part of why it worked so well? Please edit your post to at least add a spoiler warning (or better yet delete that portion). Not everybody has seen this movie yet.

There were actually TWO scenes within and after the credits....


And she was using Glock 26s, mostly because she's a small woman, and they wanted something that would "fit" her hand and overall size better. It's not about concealment.....trust me, she walks into a room in that outfit, even with the custom holsters, those guns will be the last thing anyone notices.

Agree, Downey's Ironman is the best movie superhero to date IMO.

Casting Downey as Tony Stark was genius. What better actor to play the most addicted hero in the Marvel Universe?

I also like Hugh Jackman's portrayal of Wolverine in the X-Men films.

Scarlett has curves in all the right places, and is pretty. She played that role very well. They could have gotten almost any actress in that part (I'm guessing), but they made the right pick to show us who Black Widow is :)

She's not an assistant, she's second in command of SHIELD! Would you call the Executive Officer on an aircraft carrier the captain's "assistant"? (well, you might....but probably only once).

Yes, she's a female. That does NOT automatically make her an assistant.

For the record, the character is Maria Hill, played in this film by the lovely Cobie Smulders (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1130627/), from "How I Met Your Mother."

The dfowner that we take away from this film is. How are they gonna match it? The amount of fighting was epic. IN the second movie, half of the fighting will be over. Just because they are a team.

If they do fight, it will be pactice and not the same. I may go see it again this weekend with my wife. She was out of country when I took the boys.

I was impressed at how the SHIELD thing went from small potatoes in the previous films to full throttle in this film. It was much more like the comics. Hell, the whole movie played like a great comic. Great casting too.

Robert Downey is Tony Stark. I really liked the Hulk being in control too. I still haven't seen Thor, but Hemsworth is a great Thor.

The cast and story were excellent. 2 Thumbs Up!

I really liked the easter egg at the end. There were only a few people who waited for it in the theater I was at today. The cleanup crew liked it, one of them said to me, "I never get tired of it."

SPOILER ALERT. (kinda)
I think also Hulk liked the orders Captain Americal gave him.

The Eggs at end. Was there more to the last one then just "Tony Stark said we are going there....."??? Was there any dialog? I heard a few grunts, then dead silence.

While I don't recall who in first egg. (he felt familiar but can't recall) The message was clear by his grin. "I like a good fight"

It's been out over a week in the US, and far longer overseas. Are we past the point yet of worrying about spoilers? I can tell ya all about the first mid-credits scene, but seeing as this is a gun forum, I'm not keen on infuriating anyone by spoiling something! :tongueout:

Let me be "that guy" and offer a contrary view. I was forced to see it as a chaperon on a school trip. The only real laugh I recall was Downey's character referring to Thor as "Point Break."

Never cared much for sci-fi, even as a kid, so I didn't have high hopes going in.

I guess the movie was great from a technical POV, but since you can do anything with CGI these days, I'm just not as blown away by special effects anymore. My expectations are never exceeded because I know going in that the sky is already the limit.

The kids (7th graders) liked it, so I guess that's what matters.

The best part of the movie was near the end when Loki got indignant with the Hulk :rofl:. It didn't work well for Loki :supergrin:

The movie had actors that I don't like politically speaking, so I didn't pay to watch it, I saw it online, and am now glad I didn't pay to see it in theatre.

Or Hawk wielding an arrow with a broadhead that contains an explosive big enough to blow a huge chunk of a flying aircraft carrier to molten bits.

We agree on many points, I'm a Marvel kid growing up. There's so much character develop for their "issues". This movie was able to a high standard to get those "issues" without making the movie a drag. Yeah, the HeliCarrier from Nick Fury comic may be hard to swallow. It was outrageous reading as a kid.

09-29-2012, 07:27
I grew up in the "Second Golden Age" of comics, voraciously reading the Marvel, DC, Dell, Thunder, Charlton, etc., comics as a kid and as a young adult.

The movie adaptations just don't do it for me. I hope that doesn't signal too much of a change in me, and that I've lost my sense of wonder. I don't think so, because some comics (like "The Walking Dead") still knock my socks off.

I think these movies have too much "summer blockbuster," "box office hit," and CGI to them, and not enough content.

But I certainly don't begrudge their entertainment value to anyone else. And I can still enjoy "superhero" movies that I think have some dramatic resonance to them, like "Darkman" and the first "Robocop."

I probably wouldn't have had any interest in the movie if not for my 4 year old son. I took him to see it in the theater, and he thought it was awesome ( particularly the Hulk/Loki scene, which he asked me to rewind :-) )

I thought it was great, though. I like how some people get tweaked by an explosive arrow being too powerful, or impossible physics, in a movie about superheroes.

I think it had as much impact on my son as Star Wars did for me in 1977. He left th theater growling like Hulk, and asked if he could take his shoes and shirt off when we got home. :-)

Marvel has done something that, honestly, has never been accomplished before: They've made a COMIC BOOK movie. Not a movie with characters from the comics, but taking the 2D paper world and throwing it on the screen in live-action. They came close with X-Men, came closer with the first (and some of the second) Spider-Man films.

DC hasn't even come all that close. The Nolan Bat-franchise is a wonderful noir-ish action-adventure series that they stuck some Bat-symbols on. They went too far into the realm of reality to make it a good comic book movie. They're excellent movies - the second is especially excellent! - but that's not the same as a good COMIC BOOK movie.

And it isn't just Avengers. What Marvel did is to make stand-alone films to develop the character - Iron Man (and the sequel), Thor, Captain America, and Incredible Hulk laid the foundation for this movie. They didn't have to spend half the film introducing these characters because they had already been introduced. It's not a sequel, though. It's something entirely knew to movies, but a successful formula for comics for decades - take individual hero books/movies and tie them together in a "team book" (or movie). DC is now scrambling to pick up the pieces and figure out how THEY can do the same thing.

Yes, the tech and fantasy stuff is over the top. That's the way it works in the comics, too. The helicarrier was realized far better than I expected it to be, but of COURSE it's absurd! You're talking about a movie that has a Norse God, a 20-something WWII hero today, and a drunk with a great big magnet shoved into his chest!

Forget all that, just enjoy the show!

Bought it and saw it on Blue Ray too.

Granted a lot of it was far fetched, and it lagged a little bit, but all in all it was a good movie. The kid's really liked it, and while it was violent, there was no nude scenes or bad language. With the Black Widow, my girls are getting re-energized with their martial arts classes and wanting to go shooting with me again.

The thing that annoys me is Chris Evans playing Captain America. If you ever seen Chris Evans in "The Losers" , "Push" or the Fantastic Four movies where he played the Human Torch, he is a funny guy and a damn good actor. I really wasn't that impressed with the Captain American movie. It seems to be purely a writing thing. His dialog was real flat. I know they are trying to stay true to the original comic book, but was Captain America really that much of an unfunny, boring, D-bag?

Robert Downey Jr. of course nailed the Tony Stark thing, but the suprise for me was the guy who played Bruce Banner. Unlike Edward Norton in the last Hulk movie, He was classic Bruce Banner, kind of like a deadpan funny Bill Bixby. He sheepishly dropped some good lines in the movie.

Anyway seems Averngers 2 is already in the works. Supposedly they will be introducing the Falcon, so it should be interesting.

Yes.

Captain America was created as a propaganda machine (and a good one - I don't say that like it's evil) in WWII an wasn't really meant for today's market. That's actually something they carried over into the character when he was "resurrected" in the 60s - everyone mocked him for being the stuffed-shirt of the 40s. It really is just part of who the character is.

IIRC, Captain America had only one foray into the Vietnam War, when he went to take on a North Vietnamese general who also happened to be a sumo wrestler ( :whistling: ).

This was just before the "Revolutionary 60's" kicked in, when the comics veered along with the rest of the media to the left.

The difference, though, is that the X-Men movies were made by FOX, and by a team that cared about the MOVIES, but not about the characters and stories.

The Avengers movies are being handled in-house. Marvel is keeping tight reigns on the scripts, and they're hiring writers and directors that "get it".
