Marvel's The Avengers is a visual delight and I cannot wait to see it again, and again, and again.

Too much for me to enjoy

While the start is promising The Avengers get's boring pretty fast and about half an hour in one feels like watching (yet another!) iron man movie and is strongly tempted to stop right there (at least I was ;-)).

However, if you sit through it a little longer you get rewarded with a solid action flick in the second half of the film. It is, of course, a non-brainer and doesn't come anywhere near Marvel's own Wolverine / X-Men nor DC's (new) Batman films, but it's still fun popcorn cinema and worth a watch. Just do not expect too much or you will be disappointed for sure!
