I went to see this as one of the big Summer movie flicks which will be an extension of the Marvel comics. I was expecting it to be good but I was not expecting to be blown away by how good, entertaining and exciting this movie was. It had a solid story, acting, direction, dialog, humor, moments and action sequences.
My son couldn't sit in his seat seeing his superheroes in action and his smile was a mile wide. :-)
Before the Summer blockbusters started showing my most anticipated movie of the Summer was TDKR. The way 'The Avengers' has stolen the thunder of all movies this Summer makes it a tough ask for TDKR to top this. It's in danger of not meeting great expectations IMO. However, I hope I come out of the theater as blown away seeing TDKR as I came out after this one.
