I saw it just now, it was pretty decent, not super great. To give it an actual rating i'd say 6.5/10 (where as Dark Kight = 9.5/10!)

It was worth the watch though, I saw it in 2D because didn't want the 3D glasses mess today. I've seen others in 3D but just didn't think that needed it.

I personally prefer movies in 2D over 3D. Perhaps it's just me, but the picture loses its quality when wearing those glasses. I'm also not a huge fan of 3D, because I forget about it after 15-20 minutes.

I agree with you on the 3D-thing. It actually makes the picture worse! Due to these glasses the whole movie is darker… Furthermore this 3D-thing gets way out of hand lately. Btw. I saw Thor in 3D - there wasn't even an option for 2D in my cinema - but it wasn't really necessary in my opinion…

BTW.: I'd actually I'd love having the option for analog cinema again - for me this whole "Digital Cinema" was nothing but increased prices without any benefit - hell I once had to wait 45 minutes cause they had technical problems with this whole digital stuff…

I was going to go see it but was too busy this weekend. Sounds like a decent movie so I am going to go see it soon.

This is one of those movies where the marketing team should be fired. From the previews, I thought it looked absolutely stupid. I like superhero movies so I went to watch it anyway. To my surprise, I thought it was a very solid movie. There were some spots where the special effects were lackluster, but the story and overall feel the movie left me with was quite a positive one. I really enjoyed it.

OMG that was one of my favorite scenes. Mixing the movies like this is so cool. I don't think I've ever seen movies do this until these Marvel movies. Like in the Captain America trailer where he says Mr. Stark or something like that. That is awesome too! Thor gets 9/10 from me :woot:

I know I'm definitely in the minority on this, but I just watched it and absolutely could not get over how cliched it was.

Character development? Yeah, pretty much not there.
Cheesy lines? Yup, all-around.
Uninteresting action? Pretty much.
Over-use of CGI, just like Green Lantern? Oh goodness, yes.
Tilting the camera at important dialogue moments just to scream to the viewer, "TENSE MOMENT!"? Ugh, yeah.
Shots of supporting characters smiling when something amazing happens? Check.
Supporting characters who are supposed to come across as bad comic relief? Egads, yeah.

It follows the Iron Man plot line -- privileged individual pays for his arrogance, gets humbled a bit, and gains great power and knowledge, blah, blah, blah. The problem is the acting is nothing compared to Iron Man. The character interaction isn't even remotely believable. And the environments... I never say this about a movie, but the sets were freaking atrocious. There were a couple main locations, and everything else looked entirely out of place.

It's upsetting, because, deep down, there's parts of a good movie here. When the movie focuses on

But, man... cliched movie out the wazzoo. This is easily the most disappointing movie I've seen all year.
