    You haven't watched much Japanese tv, that's typical for Japanese tv, I believe that's what they like to watch.

    The attachment of the guy in the lexan cube letting the bear shove him around. Why would anyone knowingly get into a cube like that knowing a bear or lion is about to visit the cube? Like a shark cage, if great whites scare you to death why get into the cage?

    It's definitely in the bottom half of Marvel movies. OTOH, if you're into the Marvel movies, you'll want to see them all and there are a couple of sequences in this movie that fill in holes in past Marvel movies and foreshadow future Marvel movies.

    SPOILER ALERT!
    • Good stuff:
      • For less than $5, it was worth seeing:
        • how Shield got the tesseract,
        • how Nick Fury lost his eye,
        • and how the text message at the end of the last movie worked out.
    • I haven't made up my mind stuff:
      • The immature Fury and Colson characters were jarring. I know they had to have been immature when they were young so I think I might eventually move this into the "Good stuff" category. My first impression, though, was very mixed.
    • Bad stuff:
      • The lead character came off not as strong or funny in the early going. She just seemed smarmy. Things got a little better by the end.
      • In the first part of the movie, the flashbacks were just too much, too many, too fast, apparently done by an editor strung out on speed.
      • While not as bad as some Youtube commenters are making it out to be, there are several minutes in the third act (and other places, too) where the whole "Girls rule; boys drool" narrative got pushed to the front rather gracelessly. They even went there in an action-stopping set of flashbacks right in the middle of the last big fight scene!
      • The fight sequences, especially the last, big one, were often silly in the details.
      • ETA - One more thing - They ripped off a classic Indiana Jones scene. You'll see it coming from a mile away. Talk about lazy, sloppy moviemaking. Ugh.
    • Bottom line:
      • I doubt I'll ever re-watch it. For a movie in the Marvel Universe, that's pretty serious condemnation from me.

    I own every Marvel movie that has come out to date. I have managed to not read any of the nonsense many of the actors have said and keep the movies separate from politics.


    This one pushed way to hard. It’s the first one I will probably never watch. My wife is going to see it this weekend. I’ve watched plenty of reviews (mostly unbiased and similar to what Ben has posted) so I won’t have to worry about missing anything.

    How Fury lost his eye is just friggin stupid.

    Also, how they got the teseract is friggin stupid.


    I have a feeling End Game will be the beginning of the end for Marvel, but I can’t wait to see the Black Widow movie when it comes out.


    I watched Wonder Woman for the first time last weekend (broke my “no DC crap” rule and thought it was great. Don’t think I will suffer through any of the other DC garbage though.
