In the trailer presented at Comic-Con 2013, the dialogue for Iron Man, Captain America, Bruce Banner, Nick Fury, and Maria Hill was taken from The Avengers (2012), except Thor's, which came from a deleted scene of Thor: The Dark World (2013). See more »
(at around 1h 35 mins) Before the final assault on Sokovia, Quicksilver runs into the police station and exclaims, "We're under attack, clear the city!" However, when he sprints out, you can see the heads of the two policemen sitting behind the counter turn very quickly to follow him, indicating that the clip was sped up and the actors turned their heads in normal time.

[the Avengers are in the process of infiltrating a HYDRA base in Sokovia]
Report to your stations immediately. This is not a drill. We are under attack!
[Tony hits the shield around the base]
Language! Jarvis, what's the view from upstairs?
The central building is protected by some kind of energy shield. Strucker's technology is well beyond any other Hydra base we've taken.
Loki's scepter must be here. Strucker couldn't mount this defense without it. At long last.

I can't say the film didn't lack action because it didn't, every minute was filled with brilliant effects and amazing shots. An action packed adrenaline ride all through. However this said the film lacked story. At first the film was taking over from the first avengers, the story was good. But somewhere into the film the story fell apart with too much happening and without the solid story line it felt weak, with no real connections at all there was just fighting and action all over. I thought from what little story this film had to offer it was a lot more comic based than the previous one. The main villain in this film felt like a weakly based character, he had little to do with the story and was probably a contributing factor into it's downfall.
In conclusion I thought that the action, acting and effects are among the best, however the weak story left me with a far different feeling to the first. I thought although this film was great for a sequel it wasn't as good as the first. The film felt like it was meant to put a story across ready for the next film, which I hope will have a better story and live up to my expectations! However if for now you're looking for a great action film this is definitely a great one to watch, even though the story was weak and lacked that edge it is still a great film and hopefully will make an even better trilogy!
