Daredevil (2015)
[This count just as the first season]

DareDevil Season 1 is the best from the serious side of Marvel.I feel that every character here is important, every single scene is powerful, hero or not hero, sideckick or a minion from the bad guys.

I like the narrative of the show, watching the hero starting from beating bad guys and going up bit by bit to the baddest bad guy is a type of story i really find enjoyable, but not only that, we see the main villain himself going to the top to bellow, so is just not watching the main character going to the final boss, but the final boss also meeting with his biggest threat after the mistakes he already made.

The casting is rich, the friends Matt Murdock has are some of the most likable and relatable characters i have seen in a TV show; the fear you feel when you see the atrocities the evil organization does just gives you chills, you want the main character to win, but also you start knowing the other half of the show, the greatest character of the MCU: Wilson Fisk.

The antagonism these two have, both in the hero world and the real world is great, colliding their personal and justice life, developing away from one another, feeling sympathy for the hero and empathy for the villain, but at the end the evil and good are there and is Matt who dares the Devil. Every word, every debate, every punch, every scar, every death feels with power and that will be able to change something in the story, and they sure do. Fisk, for example, just with every word he speaks, you just feel a cold in the neck, and Matt, you just can feel his will to do right every time.

It's a shame this feeling tried to come back once and then faded away, like if it was just an accident

This movie is the perfect balance between ocassional comedy and action, my favorite type of Marvel Movie, the one that actually is able to have some funny moments, but still telling an epic story that changes everything and everyone. I don't think there is a singular Marvel movie that isn't a crossover that changed as much as this one...

The fights were cool, the villains were cool, the rivalry between Cap and The Winter Soldier is just so well made and truly feels like a clash of titans created in similar ways [One day Hulk movies... one day]

The climax is one of the most intense and cold from the MCU, and the way every single character, old and new, felt and participated sure gives a lot to the experience.

The best Marvel Sequel of them all and by a huge gap.

If DareDevil shows the best of the serious side of the MCU, this movie does with the funny side.

It feels like The Avengers done right(er), and with characters we didn't even knew, but that became our favorite casting in the whole cinematic universe.

Every single one of them is memorable, every scene is memorable, every joke is memorable, every interaction is memorable, every space battle is memorable, the soundtrack is memorable, every fight is memorable. Now change the word "memorable" and change it "awesome" and you get one of the greatest action-comedy movies of all time [memorable still aplicable, tho]. Is just a fest of over the top, cheesy, funny action turned into a movie.

The only mistake i feel with this movie is the main antagonist, but eh, he has his moments too, especially in the ending.

Not my favorite movie, but one of my favorite super heroes flicks ever

Iron Man (2008)
The MCU couldn't have had a better start than with Iron Man and i bet nobody saw what was coming back then. At least i didn't, i was to busy crying at school like a little bitch because i thought i wasn't going to make friends.

Anyways, great origin story, great character arc, great vil...no.

I just love the way the main character evolves, is like the best things from superheroes origin movies were combined in this film, with a perfect performance from RDJ and the first time i watch some really sweet dynamic action in cinemas since Spiderman 2.

The Avengers (2012)
Nowdays, characters in other movies that are not their own don't feel special
Nowdays, a movie can have the title of other hero and focuses in other and nobody cares anymore.
Nowdays, superheroes movies get made like hot bread.
Nowdays, is more possible that the movies tell more about what is going to happen, rather than telling stories of their own.

But there was a time when they were a bit more rare, they were making stories that had little teases to future movies (instead of focusing a lot in those teases), the future greatest collab, years of waiting finally ended and we got The Avengers. Finally watching the biggest crossover in movie history was something else and changed a lot since then... for better or worse. And is the last time i can remember, i felt i was watching AN EVENT in cinemas.

Now leaving the good old memories behind, how's the movie itself? is good... A 9/13 as a movie honestly, i liked Django and the first Hobbit movie a bit more that same year. But is the interactions between the characters, the possibilities they ended up opening [two of them very disappointing, sadly. But one being my favorite MCU movie], the villain and the high budget action truly makes the film something great.

The first act feels really slow, is the biggest complain i have and i feel the way new wacky characters can relate to each other after the first meeting feels so much better in GotG, but still pretty enjoyable watching them fight against Loki and each other. Not as epic as i expected it to be, but left the movie really satisfied.

THE REAL Avengers 2. Avengers: The Age Of Ultron didn't make me exited about all these characters meeting again, but this movie does, not because they are fighting, but because everything feels like a huge event that needs as many heroes as possible again, leaving every single one of them on the edge, exploring a side it needed to be explore this far in the franchise: The stability of the heroes themselves.

I feel this movie not only has a great conflict, but one of the most memorable characters that antagonizes the heroes, and ironically, gives a reason to watch A:AoU. Introduces new heroes and old ones not introduced properly [Some in better ways than others... not everything is perfect]

My biggest, biggest complain that leaves it out of the top five is the reason for the final fight. Tony, you saw he was being manipulated, why do you want to kill both Cap and Bucky?, i mean, the fight is cool, the development for everything that has happened before sure is amazing, but watching how everything turns out for worse for a stupid detail really takes me out of the movie.
Still great, might sound nitpicking, but everything was going so great before that. The conclusion still feels good.

Just like DareDevil, this segment will only talk about the first season

When you thought Netflix series couldn't get darker, Jessica Jones enters giving us one of the most bittersweet and saddest stories in the MCU, with an ending that doesn't leave anyone with a happy note.
Of course making a sad story doesn't make it anything better or even good, but it sure makes it pop out.

The quality of the show is in the same side as DareDevil: The Hero, his Friends and the villain. The series makes me care about Jessica and his friends, we explore a villain and how messed up he is (played by one of my favorite actors of all time), turning the show into a game of cat and mouse where it swings between who's the cat and who's the mouse, the whole series you feel a sensation of treat, exploring both sides of a dark river with a conclusion that just feels satisfying after all that teasing between the villain and the hero.

A feel that sure Netflix Marvel shows know to make the best, right?... right?

My biggest complain about this series is that it can be very slow [But compared with things like DD2 it feels like a racecar] and the plot feels it wants to be in circles, leading us to nowhere, the "swinging" thing is a double edge blade unfortunately.
ZebitasMrtx's rating:
This movie has one of the greatest atmosphere in any superhero movie, complemented by the scenarios and situations the characters live every time and the action in a scenario like WW2 gives, the feel of both partnership and war this movie has is really one of the things that makes this movie great. I like the creation of the hero, the inspiration he has, the charisma he and the people around him give to the public.

The movie biggest flaw is the villain, the fact that RED FREAKING SKULL by HUGO FREAKING WEAVING is not memorable, nor treating, nor feels like a menace just feels wrong and the third act feels a like a bit let down, except for the conclusion, but overall still worth a good watch

Black Panther (2018)
This is a pretty basic movie, but one of the most solid works in the MCU.

The world building is great, you want to know more about how Wakanda works, the people, the system, the tribes, how is growing, how it has been working for so long. The main character feels like a young man looking to be a better leader and everything that happens here is something he can truly grew up with. It doesn't feel like any other MCU movie, it feels like it's own thing most of the time.

The second biggest problem with this movie are the jokes, there aren't many of them, but some of them are just painful and are gonna get old very fast. Not so bad as the first problem and that is the lack of tension, you don't get a feel of threat in this movie and how what is happening affects everybody, they just sorta happen

The greatest achievement of this movie is the visuals, the scenarios and fights. The story following Strange is interesting enough, but the character itself multiplies the experience by 10. Is one of those characters that makes you feel good watching growing up, fighting and coming every time with new ideas and techniques. I don't think that kind of charm would have come from any other actor, one of the best castings i have seen in these movies.

The biggest flaw of this movie, besides the forgettable villain (again), is the comedy, is good placed, but is the change of tone after the first act, which is a bit darker, sad, but then he get's into the temple and everybody is happy, telling jokes, silly music... it feels like a complete different movie, not a bad movie, but the change of tone feels really awkward for me. However, is not a huge mistake, if is not higher is because the others are simple much better in the things they do right

This movie is hard to review, especially after two reboots of the same character, so i will point out goods and bads for the movies:


+ Not Iron Man 4 as i was afraid of
+ A really good Peter Parker, the best to date in my opinion
+ Vulture is the second best villain in MCU movies
+ REALLY Good comedy when the timing was right
+ The scene between the ruins (The Final Chapter) is my favorite scene in Spiderman movie incarnations
+ Potentially the best incarnation of Spidey. But still not there, not yet. Still fragile.
+ A nice way of making the story about the character learning about responsibility, is not an origin of the superhero, but the origin of a hero.
+ GREAT Spidey action

- Still fragile to screw it up more than it should
- Besides Tom Holland, the casting choices were weird and just out of place
- Not a fan of Generation Z humor
- I wish the movie could have ended with Peter trying to find out his way as Spiderman without Tony's suit after what he learned, making room for probably the best Spidey incarnation yet.
- I wish there was a bigger mention to what happened to his uncle.
- His fanboyism is kind of annoying
- Not a fan of he robotic suit. I know it was to give him a new way to tell a story and have a contrast with the others, but doesn't end up clicking very well
- Bad Placed Comedy to the point it was awkward sometimes.

I haven't read any of the Thor comics, and i don't know how Thor should feel, but if i had to say anything, THIS is the way it should feel. This movie is basically a class B 80s fantasy movie, it only needed nudes for it to have that feel.

In fact, this movie is more GotG2 than GotG2.

When the movie started i thought i was going to hate it because it started with horribly placed comedy, one of Marvel biggest flaws in these recent years, but as the movie progressed, just when you start to think "Oh, this is gonna happen", and then it happens, yes, is predicable, but is the way they evolve the jokes EVEN after the punchline what makes this movie feel so much better than other ones, even becoming self aware of it's own comedy, and that's a way to do the same things, but at the same time, create something new.

Thor: Ragnarok is an action-comedy movie with a special feel i thought i would only get from GotG, with all and throwbacks to the past. The characters are hilarious and have lots of charisma, their interactions are pure gold, the fight scenes are funny and exiting too. I don't remember the last time i laughed so hard and felt so much energy in a movie.

It's a comedy but also has an interesting story to tell and characters to relate to, feels like a conclusion for a lot of the things Thor has gone through his and the Avengers movie (Well, except ONE major thing), we get more development for even Hulk that hasn't had much justice in the MCU.

However this movie has one big flaw and is the story. Of course i shouldn't care in a comedy, but for what was teased as "Ragnarok" it feels really forced and weak, with multiple stories that feel like a mess. Unlike GotG2 and IM2 that also feel messy for having multiple stories, this movie feels like a Matryoshka doll, there is a story inside a story inside a story and then the story comes out again and comes out again and... not really a fan of that format, especially because interesting characters suffer, like again, not having a good villain. I appreciate the change of narrative and trying something new, it helped the comedy, but the movie could have been executed much better, even with that format.

Jessica Jones (2015)
Please ignore the score in this review, i will only talk about the 2nd Season and not the overall show.


The second season of Jessica Jones is not a superheroes story, but is a story about people with superpowers, going for a different direction that every single Marvel product has taken. In fact, the first half is about investigations, crime scenes, detective fiction, and even after the mistery is solved, the detective and police fiction still right upfront. This kind of story opens the door to give focus to every single one of the characters and how they face both the detective life and superpowers.

There is no Good vs Evil story, but more an exploration of the characters who we already knew and their minds which was one of the strongest parts of the first season. This is as repealing as it sounds for many people sadly, i really liked this formula, especially because Jessica Jones' cast is so intriguing that the whole story i wanted to see more and more of them, even if their participation with the main story wasn't as strong as others. But for people that only liked for messed up situations like the ones Kilgrave gave us in the first season, they won't find the same here.

As i said, the lack of something like a huge villain made this season feel way more weaker than the last one. Is not bad by any means, the overall conflict is interesting from begining to end, and is a conflict i didn't expect we were going to get, in fact, it doesn't even exist in the comics, making it feel fresh and wondering what is going to happen every single episode, they knew how to build tension and is something that i felt missing since Luke Cage.

Another thing is that, it didn't need 13 episodes to be told, i see the story fitting perfectly in 8 or 10, it isn't as bad as Iron Fist where you felt that most of the conflict wasn't even needed, or The Punisher where literally half of the episodes are an empty bag of nothingness.

The characters interactions and conflicts, the overall plot and some of the turns still make this better than the other Netflix's Marvel shows, and it didn't just made characters less likable, less relevant or boring like DD2, it didn't make sacrifices just for it to have pointless fights (Talking about fights, there was a sad lack of them, there weren't many in JJ1, but the Luke Cage and Simpson fights were amazing) or horrible subplots(since the whole season in based in subplots it felt more natural), so it felt stable with the original season in that aspect of how they manage writing.
But the lack of something great, shocking, good fight scenes, and overall threat puts it miles below the amazing first season.

The Punisher (2017)
This show is really slow, there is a bunch a subplots that wouldn't be such a trouble, but you lose the string very easily, and honestly they end up being a waste of time and effort, for example: half of one of the main characters' arc is she having sex with her boyfriend, i know it was "relevant" at some point, but after scene and scene of the same you just get tired.
Not only is slow, the overall plot is a mess, and not that interesting, it jumps between here and there with "No, it was him all along" over and over again. For example, two of the best episodes don't add absolutely anything to the plot, they make the characters grow and open the finale, yeah, but it just feel like last minute filler of "We are building up this character in the background, but let's stop everything we are going to focus in this now"; half of the characters don't matter and the thing with the story is that, the antagonists are your generic MCU villain until the very very very end.

So why is this so high?, two things:

- Frank Castle is amazing and his partner too, they share a good chemistry, of course the show is slow, but is just that Castle is such a tragic character you care about him, you don't care about any other thing in the show until he gets involved, of course, he's the protagonist of course it doesn't matter until then... well, it worked with Jessica Jones and DareDevil 1, where there were some subplots where the main characters weren't there and worked, especially with the villains [here they don't really matter until they interact with Castle, is not like their plans, actions or phrases really matter outside wanting to make Castle miserable]. But no, here is Frank Castle the one that steals the show, his actions, his words, everything about him is so likable and awesome. He even was the one who stole the show in DD2

- The action. Holy fucking shit, THE action. There is some good action in the show like in Episode 1, but when you get to episode 8 onwards, the whole thing is like you get into a rollercoaster, is just a nonestop fest of badassery and blood. You feel every punch, you feel every bullet, you feel every punishment, you feel the anger, everything about the action is so amazing and the climax is probably my favorite in the whole Netflix's shows, the kind of payoff we were expecting to see again since DareDevil. Is an style over substance show in every sense of the word, but is just so much worth it, you will be screaming at the screen with the finale

The Defenders (2017)
The Defenders is kind of a mix bag, and the biggest mistake from this show is being a sequel to the two weakest Marvel Netflix shows: DD2 and IF

The Hand is not interesting, DareDevil didn't make it interesting, Iron Fist didn't make it interesting, and The Defenders couldn't make them either, and the fact that is the plot again, and makes a mistake that dissapointed me the most about every other Netflix shows from here and bellow: CHANGE THE DAMN ANTAGONIST DURING THE RUN OF THE SHOW TO A PERSON WE DON'T CARE.
Stick with one, we were liking the antagonist we were getting, we started to hate them, we wanted to watch them get what they deserved, but instead something happens and the story rushes out and turns into a mess.

But despite that, the characters make this show, i love every single scene where they are, how they interact, how they fight (because both DD2 and IF made The Hand fights kind of boring, but watching our four favorite characters fighting, actually makes the fights... ENJOYABLE), How they become friends, etc., etc. That is what makes this show so much better than the others, and proves that the biggest mistake is just a plot that wasn't working before this show even began to film, the characters are good enough. I hope that, with this, The Hand arc is actually over and we don't see more of it

Luke Cage (2016)
Luke Cage is a huge jump for what we had in Jessica Jones and DareDevil S1 & 2 gave us. In a way, is more lighthearted, but at the same time, is more attached to the reality of Harlem, which i think is a nice change of pace from what we had in Devil's Kitchen, but the show has two big problems:

1. The first element i mentioned, the being lighthearted, sometimes turns out to be really cheesy. I'm usually tolerant to cheesyness and over the top, but some moments just feel straight cringeworthy, like the rap musical and the final battle. I wish there were more moments like "Nigga, I am your Brother" and then the evil jazzy song plays, moments like that were cheesy, but the funny and cool kind of cheesy, the same kind of cool-cheesy GotG and T:R had.

2. The story and characters. The biggest mistake this thing did was splitting the story in two, the first half focused in Luke vs Cottonmouth and suddenly Luke vs Black Diamond, we spend the first half knowing the villain like we did with Fisk or Kilgrave, just to jump straight into another guy that, is so late introduced we don't care about him, we don't care about what's happening anymore, about Cottonmouth's partners, and eventually we stop caring about Luke himself. If the story was just about the rivalry that was building up between Luke and Cottonmouth, this show would have been way more awesome.

But luckly, it still have some of the good moments i mentioned before, so i can still recommend it

This movie suffers from something... it makes a point, it solves doubts from the first movie, it developes some characters[Well, just two, really] but that's it. I didn't feel connected with the characters, i didn't feel exited, it was just things i watched before with cool music in the background. The movie is basically that episode of Futurama where Leela thinks she found out another cyclops, her real home, but is actually an alien that brings a lot of other aliens from other races, and i think this movie feels like that, an episode from a TV show, yay, we see more from our favorite characters, but not much is added, it doesn't feel like a sequel, it feels more like the first episode for a potential TV show, you know, like a Disney sequel. Plus, the characters are all over the place, while the strenght in the first movie were character interactions, in this movie everyone is doing their own thing, giving that feel of a sitcom TV episode, and i feel only TWO of the stories are actually midly interesting, the rest are just... there, yeah, some of them actually add some character, but is just for a couple of dialog.

But as a comedy is one of the best comedies of the MCU, sadly, not as effective and disappointing compared with the action-comedy that was GotG. GotG2 has action, but don't go hand by hand like in the original film, again, nothing wrong with the main focus on comedy, overall is good, but the formula used in GotG and other Marvel films, even T:R (And even comparing non superhero movies, like Hot Fuzz, Tropic Thunder, Rush Hour and so many other action-comedy movies), works so much better. It has some of the best jokes in the whole franchise, but not so much besides that. The best way to describe this feeling is this obvious exaggeration:

GotG1 is a comedy novel, GotG2 is straight a jokes compilation book. I will laugh and come back to the book for some of the best jokes, but i don't care who's the horse entering into a bar, why the bar is there, or who the bartender is, i don't care who Alex is and why does he throw a cake to Rose, who's the chicken crossing the road, i will just laugh. While with the novel i can't just come back and read some lines, i have to experience the thing as a whole again for it to be fully effective, the characters, the scenarios, everything and it will stick with me more and the jokes will be more memorable and funny, despite i laughed my ass off with the jokes book more.

Of course not as literal, but at the end of the day, that's the thing with GotG2, not only the comedy isn't as effective, it has my favorite casting of all the MCU sub-franchises, but i don't care, AND I SHOULD, sadly the movie doesn't make me care and i don't feel it's trying either, except for a couple of moments.

However, not everything is bad: The final battle and ending is probably my favorite from the whole MCU, that alone can sell this movie, but the movie doesn't last 20 minutes, it lasts over 2 hours, suffering the exact same problem as Rogue One and Godzilla (2014), where the climax alone is really awesome, but the rest of the movie isn't really that good, and if it wasn't because i already liked the characters from the last installment, i probably wouldn't remember their names.

Thor (2011)
As a fan of nordic mythology, but not knowing much about Thor comics themselves, i was really excited about Thor. What i got was a kinda fish out of the water super hero story. That's as basic as you can get. The fights aren't really exciting either, nor the climax, nor the gods fighting because they are gods, they are just fights.

I like the tragedy with Loki and Thor, and also i love them as characters, they are the reason to why this movie is above the rest of the list, Loki is the best villain (At least in the movies) but overall, watchable with a lot of enjoyable and funny scenes and characters.

In that way, i consider this movie in a TIE with GotG2, i feel one movie has things the other should have, while i cared more about Thor and their characters as a whole during the whole film, i got bored in the climax and ending. But the comedy in GotG2 puts it above

Ant-Man (2015)
Ant Man is the MCU summed up. If you want to see a movie that has all the positives and negatives from the MCU, you can just watch this one. Not saying is the movie is the best thing from the MCU, nor the one i recommend to get into the universe, but is just a really average super hero movie, for better or worse.

You have the basic origin story
You have the technology
You have someone who knows more
You have the forgettable villain
You have the GOOD placed comedy
You have the BAD placed comedy
You have the lovely idiot of a hero
You have the comic reliefs
You have the creative final battle
You have some good effects
You have the teasing of the future movies
And that's it. This movie doesn't do anything to break any of the clichรฉs we are used to in other movies, still enjoyable, but the fact that we have seen this thing over and over again, it's really showing how the movies can feel if they don't find a way to spice it up in the future. Lucky for us, they did find more things to do like in Doctor Strange and Spiderman, and i hope we don't have another "Ant Man" again, and i doubt (and hope not) "Ant Man and The Wasp" will turn the same way

Iron Fist (2017)
Iron Fist is just... weird.

I like the main character but i also dislike him. The show is cheesy but not a good cheesy like Luke Cage, the characters make a lot of stupid choices or just act for nothing at the end.

I liked some fights, Madame Gao is kinda cool but not as memorable as she was in DareDevil where she was an evil creepy messed up misterious lady.
But suffers what i mentioned before, The Hand and not having a focus with antagonists. If i had to choose, i would have stick with zombie dad.
Why is this above DD2 then?, well, the characters, i liked the characters way more, the siblings, the evil crazy resurrecting dad, i kinda like Danny Rand's arc, when he glows the fist it feels exciting. But nothing special really, is worth watching only for The Defenders

Also, the final scene is really Doctor Strange ending all over again.

[From here bellow is when it gets really ugly...]

The fact that is above the others is just for two things: The first four episodes and the scenes with Fisk, especially when he faces Matthew Murdock and Frank Castle. And The Punisher, just that.
The rest this is the point of decline in the Netflix shows: The Hand and changing antagonists, and since 1/3 of the season is good, then is not good.

As i stated before, they are the biggest problems i have with these shows, but DareDevil is the one that started this trend.
The Hand should be the guys to make interesting, but it gets tiresome really quickly watching ninjas fighting in the dark over and over and over again, with no real villain to follow nor care about, and the side characters like Karen and Foggy have their screen time and own resolution, even helping the main character from the good story that is the Punisher, but they don't have any weight in the story of Matthew, which is most of the season as it should be, but it's sincerily the most boring thing i have watched from the MCU.

This movie suffers the same thing that happens to GotG2, it doesn't really feel like a movie, it feels more like an episode from a TV show "Oh nice, more from the characters i love" but nothing much. It has some good and bad placed comedy, but is not as bad as IM3, DS nor Ant Man, the scene with the hammer is one of the best jokes in these movies. The ending sure closes and opens many possibilities, but what happens in the movie per se, i didn't enjoy it that much, it's a movie that just happened, that's it.

Sorry the review from this movie feels so dry, but that sums this movie as a whole, dry.

Iron Man 3 (2013)
This movie is wasted potential and full of weird choices, like the Mandarin being an actor, the villain hating Iron Man because he was left alone, and being more about Tony Stark instead of Iron Man.

But despite all that, still kind of enjoyable, the climax is one of my favorite final fights of the MCU. Except for the stupidity of Tony giving his address that started the conflict, i find Tony very likable and enjoyable in this movie and i feel him developing more than in Iron Man 2, despite not having an arc at all, at least focuses in what it should, and i find Rhodey and Pepper had more of the screen time they deserved.

The comedy was here and there, more hits than miss, but from here, Marvel comedy starts getting tiresome, another reason why is it here

Dark World is boring. Just that, boring. It had so much potential after what happened to The Avengers, it teased a huge battle of gods, but sadly we had a movie where you don't feel anything happening.

The best thing about this movie was the final fight, only for that it is worth it, also Loki still pretty cool.

But unlike Thor, i didn't care about the rest of the characters nor the villain, and unlike GotG2, yes,the climax is cool, but doesn't save the movie,just makes it more tolerable, and at least GotG2 made me like and laugh with some of the characters, the movie still has comedy and the final fight has jiggles, but is not it's strength like in GotG2.

If it wasn't for that, it would be the worst MCU movie. Disappointing movie, disappointing sequel

Hulk should be the kind of story to make interesting, but they focus so much in aspects about the people that should i care about, like Captain America or Irom Man, but i end up not caring about at all. The action and troubles Banner goes through aren't enough to hook me into the film.

Now, i don't belive the movie is a complete waste of time, but compared with the rest of the MCU is, without contest, the biggest waste of time of the franchise.

At least we can see War Machine and Tony develops a little bit... a little bit he just stops being an asshole. We see what happens after he reveals his identity and that's it, even some of the actors hated this movie and the way it was written, the action was meh, the story was all over the place and the state of Tony in the first half of the film sums this pretty well: A mess
So, to sum it up:
The story, sorry, "stories" aren't good
The comedy wasn't good
The characters weren't likable
The villain was ruined so bad that even the actor who played him was mad about how horrible the character was, and now with the Universe already established with bland antagonists, still really bad
The action was basic

TIH was boring but at least had some focus, i wouldn't call it bad
T:DW at least had Loki and a cool final fight
IM3 had good comedy and the characters and situations were funny, and the final fight was a really great showfest despite the build up
A:AoU has great character interactions and the ending makes it feel important
And DD2 had the first four episodes and Fisk
This movie has good things, but are good things in a poor product
ZebitasMrtx's rating:

The rating in this list is relative to the MCU itself.

Avengers for me is a 4.5/5 as part of the MCU universe itself, but as a movie i would say is a 9/13
