I couldn't help myself from poking fun at every second of this film and yet I was still bored. I guess it just isn't my thing, since I've never been into Marvel, but the very premise felt ridiculously contrived to me.
After all the hype, including people getting the DVD/BD and saying how magnificent it was even on the Xth viewing (and respectable types, not just fanboys), I was thoroughly underwhelmed. It's not bad, but it's a little scrappy for nearly 100 minutes and then a pretty awesome climax kicks in and kind of obscures what went before.

All that said, some of the people slagging it off here ("all glitter and no substance") are going a little too far, I think.
Damn. This movie is utterly crap.
