A smorgasbord of bad ideas, sumptuously over-realized.

Newsweek
This is an elaborate production, but all the jazzy sets and explosions in the world can't disguise the story's complete lack of urgency.

Entertainment Weekly
The Avengers is too enervated to qualify as even a full-scale disaster.

This big-budget bore looks lovely but is so miscalculated that you can't help but wonder whether anyone involved had ever seen the original.

This new film version, sad to say, is a hollow shell of the original series.
25
The movie is a dismal and misguided special-effects romp featuring two of the deadest performances recorded this year so far.

ReelViews
This film is an absolute mess.
20
There's nothing but a convoluted overcast of story with a monsoon of bad dialogue.
0
It's a completely botched effort -- botched in its direction, its writing and editing.

The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
The incomprehensible leads to the inexplicable which ends in the indecipherable.
