Unpopular Opinion: “The Avengers” was meh, at best.
The science in the film made me want to stab my eyes with icepicks. By all rights, Tony Stark should have died about 10 fucking minutes in. I don’t give a rat’s ass if your suit is indestructible: you are a man. You would’ve been hamburger in that thing.
Also, Tony Stark’s (Robert Downey Jr) “jokes” were forced and not funny. Each one was worse than the last.
Lastly, the plot was contrived and trite. The relationships between the characters were shallow, 1-dimensional, and childlike.
Sure, it’s a superhero movie, so it’s meant to be fun. But that doesn’t mean it can’t also be good. I was disappointed.
(I realize this is not a new movie, but I just saw it last week.)
