Tell them those Tae Bo tapes really paid off
27 July 2017 | by jhudson-11704See all my reviews

OK, Coulson is a bada**. Let's just get this out there. The story might have been something as boring as a gas station robbery but Clark Gregg puts in so much charisma that it is worth the watch.

Gregg's Coulson is completely witty in this short as he kind of messes with the robbers until he very easily takes them down. It is very unexpected from someone who we have only seen on the sidelines but it is very welcome.

This doesn't add much to the plot of either Iron Man 2 or Thor, it's just good plain fun and something for Clark Gregg to showcase himself with.

+ Clark Gregg + Humor + Quick, effective action - Adds nothing to overall story, still fun though

Final Score: 8.8/10
