Were these people who complained expecting Banner to be shown visiting Taj Mahal or the beautiful streets of Calcutta? These people clearly don't understand the reasoning for that slum storyline. Banner is in hiding and needs to avoid the main city. And then there is the follow up scene when he is made to travel further out again to the more dingy part of the city.
"Bruce Banner: You brought me to the edge of the city, smart. I uh...assume the whole place is surrounded?"
At least there are others in Bollywood like actress Neha Dhupia who said it more better. "It is disturbing to see the murky underbelly of India in Hollywood films. But before pointing it out to the West, we need to make efforts to change their perception about us."
I guess I'm the only one who thought it was meh. Ok, the Hulk had a couple of funny 3-stooges moments but that doesn't make the movie. Lesse, evil guy wants to take over the world, opens up a portal where baddies pour through. He also converts some good guys by emptying their minds or something. 'Good' guys really making weapons instead of unlimited power, unbeknownst to the Avengers. Throw in a lot of Transformers type everything blows up moments at the end. Yep, this movie was totally refreshing and new.
Bottom is wrong, they did go to invite him and he said Go F yourself.
Saw The Avengers for the third time, still so much fun. I can't wait to see the extended cut on Blu-ray with more Cap footage.
We went and saw it again yesterday (second time for me, third for the hubby) and hit up a 3D showing this time.
I absolutely love the movie, but I have to say I still really dislike 3D. I think a few the instances we have with people missing stuff can partially be attributed to the fact that detail fuzzes out during action sequences in 3D. There were a couple moments where I thought the 3D added a little something to the sequences (like the first serpent FAV coming down through the portal), but other than that, I much prefer 2D.
I read The Avengers (2012) - Trivia - IMDb
-Lou Ferrigno voices the Hulk in this film.
-Mark Ruffalo is personally going to portray the Hulk through virtual-camera motion-capture, which allows him to actually portray the Hulk. [did he?]
-According to director Joss Whedon, The original cut of the movie was over 3 hours long. There will be about 30 minutes of the excised footage included in the DVD Release, most of which revolves around Steve Rogers (Captain America). Whedon revealed that one of these scenes involved Rogers struggling to adjust to the modern world in his Brooklyn apartment and another revealed Steve Rogers' reunion with Peggy Carter.
- [they were fighting the Skrulls!] The Chitauri appear in the first story arc of The Ultimates. Their leader claims that they go by many names, including Skrulls.
There is a scene part way through credits: Marvel Character Thanos appears with The Red Skull by his side. [I missed Red Skull. Skull and Skrulls!]
How did Captain America get his shield back? His shield was in Tony Stark's garage in Iron Man 2
I would have loved to see Captain America pick up Thor's hammer and hand it to him; especially after the Hulk couldn't!
The one in Stark's workshop wasn't the Vibranium one, but some kind of other prototype. I think I read somewhere that in the comics at one point Tony made a shield with some electronics in it for the Cap.
I've seen it 4 times, including the Marathon. Each audience reacted the same at the same parts, with respect to the humor Whedon put into the script. I think this speaks volumes about his writing skills. I love 3D, even though this wasn't shot in, or probably intended for it, but I have to say, the IMAX was almost too much sensory information to process. I don't feel I lost anything at the 2D showing.
after that, iron man makes a electronic shield that is carried as a bracelet and is kinda holographic out of the bracelet.
something like that
