The Avengers (2012)
Bad directing, aimless acting, too long.
This film is a steaming pile of turd. I've never disliked Joss Whedon, I love Buffy and Firefly/Serenity but he's not a very good director. The actors seem to suffer as much confusion as their characters do almost like, as torn as they are to join Shield and The Avengers in the film is how torn the actors must feel from scene to scene as to why they're even in this film.
Captain America does not seem like a 1930's man, I've seen better period acting in Mad Men and the like, I was looking for some authenticity in him. Thor is paying so much attention to his hair he seems to have forgotten his point. And Scarlett Johansson is horrific, she's so monotonously apathetic it shines through in her character and the only part of her face that shows any sign of acting is her eyebrow, when it raises at one point. The left one it was.
And this film is the longest bad film I've ever had the stupidity to watch.
Another point that peeved me is that the action is so ridiculously loud but the speaking so quiet in comparison, it was like every explosion was happening inside my head and every conversation was in the next room over and I was listening in.
The Avengers gets 1 point for the team dynamic, when they're altogether it's interesting to watch, and 2 points for Robert Downey Jr, he's a whole lot of man but even his humour and acting is outweighed by the stink of the rest of the film, so it gets 3 out of 10 from me and a black mark against Mark Ruffalo who was a credible actor in my eyes.
