The Avengers (2012)

Rated: PG13 - Runtime: 143 min
tesg's Rating: Three stars (out of four)

The theatre had a 3D showing starting at 11:30, the big auditorium starting at noon, and an early show in a mid-sized auditorium at 11:15.  I figured 11:15 was the one to go to.  Nobody's going to that one.

I was wrong about that.

"The Avengers" is as good as any of the recent Marvel efforts that led up to this one,  but even with Joss Whedon's stamp, I didn't think it was really any better.  I'd probably watch "Thor" or "Captain America: The First Avenger" again over this.  But it WAS still good.

Marvel fans, of course, think this is the greatest movie ever made.
