I went to see "The Avengers"

and it could be thought of as a Secret Seven book entitled "The Secret Seven Whine for 2hrs and then Save the World."

It was a good film if you're a teenage boy (lots of explosions and guys looking tough, while Scarlett Johansson wears a fitted jumpsuit), but as soon as I started thinking in terms of the Secret Seven, I couldn't take it seriously.

Seriously, four of the characters (Thor, Captain America, Nick Fury and Iron Man) produce a ton of "macho bulls**t" (effectively saying "Mine's bigger than yours") most of the time, while I couldn't help thinking of Boris and Natasha off The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show when I discovered that Johansson's character was called Natasha.

In short, if you're not in the target demographic, you probably won't enjoy the film.
