Thing is, back in Star Wars' days i don't think people were as cynical. It's not "cool" to keep harping on about movies these days i don't think.
Just saw it, and it was totally awesome. I don't think any Marvel movie after Iron Man was particularly good, but this one made me feel like a little kid again. It was just so satisfying to see all that buildup lead to such an amazing conclusion. There were too many great moments and lines to count, and the action was top notch. And that post-credits scene... Goosebumps, man.

I just love the way all the characters are kept involved, they all get their moments and they are all utterly badass. The characterisation was great. Loki was a great villain - more so than in Thor's own film. Hulk is played and portrayed brilliantly. All the Avengers are. I'm personally very impressed with the way Hawkeye and Black Widow more than hold their own.
The action is BEYOND spectacular. The early scenes are great, the final battle is beyond epic, the most awesome superhero battle ever. Never seen anything like it.
Awesome film. Great Whedonesque humour. The multiple characters are used well and none are wasted. The action is truly epic. This is pretty much the ultimate superhero movie.
virtue untested is innocence.
When you choose the lesser of two evils, always remember it is still an evil.
For those who have seen it: spoilers:

Any idea who the masked alien guy was supposed to be? I kept thinking it's Annihilus, but I think the rights to him belong to Fox, since he's primarily a FF villain.
Ok so since there is only one week until the movie comes out I'm trying not to look at a lot of reviews/forums, but I do have one question. Have any reviews mentioned how good the 3-D is? I want to go see it at the imax but they only have it in 3D and I don't want to see it there if the 3d is going to be crap.
Bra'tac: Now we die.
O'Neill: Well, that's a bad plan.
O'Neill: I've spent my whole life sticking it to the man.
Jackson: Well now you will be the man.
O'Neill: I don't think I can be the man.
That being said: wow. Word do not do this film justice. It is everything you want and more. I can count at least 2-3 times where I imagined something happening in my anticipation, said to myself "Nah, they won't do that" and then...they did it. Oh God did they do it.
I'll answer any questions, as honestly as I can, granted anyone has any left.
My one gripe:
Hulk catching Iron Man should not have been in the trailer. Much more dramatic scene in the movie that was kinda ruined.
Avengers looks very cool, though. I'm not saying it's bad. It doesn't look bad at all.
Plus, Star Wars came out in a post-war era where the economy was bad and gas prices were high. Boy, am I glad that's over...
Oh no. :)
