    I mean the character tho.

    I know a ton of comic geeks and I don't know any that like Cap as their #1 guy.

    I thought it was terribly mediocre. Even with Agent Smith doing his best Agent Smith impression.

    The costumes were nice though.

    That;s how I've felt about every superhero movie since the 1st Iron Man.

    I can't imagine the Avengers minus Cap. It just ain't right. It's always been hard to like the character because he is kinda uptight and the equivalent of Superman as far as being the moral center. So...likeable, not really. Essential...well yeah.

    I mean I get the idea that he has to be in there...but they need to do a better job of making his character more interesting. It just felt like he was there because, well, he has to be. Not because he lends anything to the group. What did he really do anyway? Throw a grenade back at a bad guy/alien/monster/robot thing and tell Ironman and Thor to stop fighting? At least in the Captain America movie they had him jump across a big gap with fire underneath him.

    I still enjoy it for the silly entertainment value in it. Seeing that little montage thing towards the end where they fly from one group to the next and they're teaming up against the baddies and the music is going...well it still makes me smile.

    Plus, I thought Loki was really solid.

    I'm hoping the next one takes a more focused approach and isn't just spectacle and "hey look everyone the avengers are on screen finally".

    Dear Lord must I explain it again?!

    It's possible to completely enjoy something that you know is utterly mediocre.

    I like McDonalds. I liked Thor.

    That doesn't mean I have to think they're quality products.
