I finally got to watch the Avengers. First off, I could definitely pass on the 3D. Although, I would totally go see it in IMAX.
I freaken loved it! I will admit that there were some slow parts. They could have left that extra 20 mintues on the cutting room floor for an even two hours. Regardless though, those slow moments did not take away from the whole of the move. All of the Avengers held their own and brought their own brand of specialness to the table. I have to say though that Mark Ruffalo as Hulk stole the show. As much as I loved Edward Norton in his portrayal of the Hulk, I have to say that Ruffalo did not leave me room to miss Norton at all. I think that is a credit to his acting as well as the material he was given.
All in all this was an A movie.
