@noj: I thought it was amazing too but I don't think it's a perfect * * * * *. It was the epitome of a summer blockbuster but it has many flaws. In my opinion, a * * * * * film should be a groundbreaking and well made film. The Avengers was just fun, it had its moments but it's not the Godfather you know what I'm saying here? A film of * * * * * is a film that has brilliance not just entertainment.
It was a * * * * movie for me. Loki was a massive cliche, incredibly unoriginal plot, a lot of plotholes (too ... damn... MANY!!), too short (the transition was not smooth a lot of times), and most importantly Thor and CA were underplayed. I bet there's a WAY longer cut of this film and I'm sure Whedon will release it in Blu Ray but it will still be * * * * film for me because it wasn't a groundbreaking film like TDK or Iron Man, in fact IM gets a ****1/2
