All of my friends went to see it. I'm going to wait until it's out on DVD because I don't have the money to go and see it at the movies... But I'm really keen to see it. Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Robert Downey Jr and Chris Evans - YUM! -drools-

...Every rider has that one horse that changes everything about them...

Saw it last night and loved it! Totally lived up to the hype which is hard for me to say about most movies.

HATED it, with a passion! I was at college with a few friends and suggested we all go to the movies to see the hunger games. We ended up seeing the Avengers instead :/ Graphics were good and all and some of it was funny but it wasn't my type of movie

Went to see it last Thursday and loved it with a passion! My husband is a Marvel fan to the bone. We have seen all of them leading up to this. I actually can see paying to see it again, then buying it on DVD!

Okay, I finally got to see it last night. I only have 2 words to describe it....


Completely BADASS!!!!!!

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

I thought it was pretty good! The humor was excellent.

I saw it in 3D and thought the effects were pretty amazing.

I had to laugh at Sca-Jo's character though. Everyone had these kick arse abilities/powers/contraptions and there she was, in a leather jump suit, basically just pouting sexily and sort of waving a....wait for it.....normal handgun. At giant alien machines. They could have at least given her the power to be invisible or something. Guess that would have detracted from her main ability - to have an epic hourglass figure and haughty pout.

I'd like to see women in action movies be a little more kick-arse and a little less arse.

*steps off soap box*

If you'll excuse me I'm off to burn the remainder of my bras

All horses deserve, at least once in their lives, to be loved by a little girl.

I completely agree. Ya know, I actually went to go Wiki her character to see what her abilities ARE. I didn't get why she really was included other than eyec candy.

I absolutely loved it. Max can't wait until it comes out so I can buy it for him. He thinks Thor is the coolest super hero ever. I think I'm more for Captain America but the Hulk cracks me up. I'm ready for more! (Of course I love super hero's....)

Go to work, do your best, don't outsmart your common sense
Never let your prayin knees get lazy
And love like crazy"

Just goes to show you how differently people can view things LOL. Sarah, you and I had a bit of a different view of her character, I guess. Sure, she's eye candy, but she's human. She's a human standing in the midst of Capt. America, Iron Man, Hulk, and Thor.....and she's holding her own with absolutely no powers beyond the ability to completely kick ass.
