Dumbest plot element of Avengers; If you are a superior being that wants to take over the whole world, then why the most ridiculous, unintelligent battle strategy? Hey, let's drop through a hole in the sky and randomly pound New York City.THANK YOU. A kindred spirit! :lol
Although I won't go so far as to day I didn't like it I was very underwhelmed. I didn't see most of the films leading up to it and I shouldn't have to. Movies like this should be able to stand on their own and on it's own merits I thought it was pretty regular.
I mean, there was no plan! You would think he would do SOMETHING intelligent strategically, maybe positioning troops around the world like in Independence Day, or employ a deception of good will until they were in place and then strike to take over multiple targets all over the world.
How is blowing up some buildings in New York a good plan for taking over the world? On top of that they are fighting a few people that can't be hurt or killed. You say, "But wait! Look at Ironman! He is just a normal guy inside that suit!" Yes, but that normal guy would have been easily killed even inside that suit in real life had he been subjected to the kinds of forces depicted in this film. Thus, he cannot be hurt or killed because his character was written that way, thus, no real drama.
An unacceptably juvenile battle plan against beings that cannot be defeated. I'm sorry, that's a pretty boring movie.
