FYI if you dont know it but there are 2 clips after the credits.

People have said it before movie is full of hype. It also lives up to the hype(if you are not a Superhero movie fan, you will still enjoy it).

Sounds like a great time was had. I hope you scheduled a nap for yourself today.

I go to the movies seldom enouigh that I always have a moment of disorientation when I leave, getting back to reality. Can't even imagine what 15 hours of superhero fantasy would do to me...applaud you sir for the effort.

WHAT!! Damn it! I had to leave ASAP after the screening, so I didn't hang around after the first scene. I'll definitely wait when I watch it again. Thanks for the heads up. Congrats on surviving the 15 hour superhero assault.

Yes they do. Last year had a few good films, but very few outstanding ones. This year has already delivered a number of solid films and we're not half way through the year.

I don't think there are any D-BOX capable theatres in Toronto. I'd love to try it.

Sorry if it has already been addressed, but how is Hulk compared to the others, I mean regarding that he's CGI (I know they made it with Ruffalo and motion capture, but in the end it's still a CGI character), does he "blend" well?

From what I remember, he looks better than ever. Lots of detail, great choice of green tone and fantastic movement. He also looks much more menacing than before.

You've gotta see this movie. You will laugh your ass off. People stood up & applauded & cheered during the credits. Haven't seen that in 12 years (THE GREEN MILE). The Incredible Hulk steals the show. Whedon & the screenwriter deserve all the accolades . RDJr is hilarious. One of the most enjoyable movie-going experiences ever. Just go see it,.

Whedon IS the screenwriter. lol. Glad to see yet another stellar review. I'm seeing it on Monday! WHOOO! It's nice to see my filmmaking/writing idol getting such accolades from the masses, critics and audiences alike. Though, if he hadn't it wouldn't have mattered, but it's nice to see his work appreciated by a mass audience for a change.

Saw it at the 12:30 am show @ AMC Burbank 16.
The complex was absolutely PACKED everywhere,the most I have ever seen at this 'plex.

I LOVED the movie! and so did everybody else in the audience...this is a crowd-pleasing EVENT movie.

Unfortunately,we saw it in one of the smaller houses and the presentation was crappy and certainly not worthy of the movie at all.

I am planning on seeing it again in the ETX room which is equipped for 7.1,which IMAX is not.

As for the 3D,it is EXCELLENT for a conversion...really outstanding and worth seeing.

Overall I had a great time out and cannot wait to see it again.

***Also make sure to stay until the VERY END,after the credits***
There is a payoff scene that is just great!

Just returned from the show as well. No 3D and no IMAX for me (schedule wouldn't allow. That being said...I didn't care! Laughed my tail off at times and was truly locked into the show from start to finish.

EVERY character has purpose and is represented to perfection. The balance amongst the mains was phenomenal. And Hulk looked great! I can't really say who stole the show because the entire 2.5 hours felt like they flew by.

No one was overdone or underdone. And as apprehensive as I was regarding the main villain/bad guys, it didn't phase me one bit during the movie.

The only disappointing part of the whole thing was having to sit through the "Battleship" and "Frankenweenie" previews. Didn't get to see the "Expendables 2" preview I was hoping for...but "Dark Knight Rises" more than made up for that

Saw this in IMAX 3D.
Amazing movie! Phenomenal job by Joss Whedon and the hundreds of people who worked on bringing this to the screen. Plenty of surprises and laughs, and of course great action. Highest possible recommendation!

I have to echo the praise for this movie. I took the day off and saw the 10 AM show today. It was action-packed, hilarious, and truly fun to watch from beginning to end. I can't recall a single moment I didn't enjoy.

I thought the way they brought each character into the fold was fantastic.

Thanks,

Scott

It was just a minute or so of all of them eating sandwiches in some half destroyed deli subway like place and you just keep waiting for them to say something but they just kinda keep eating and giving and nod or two and that's it.


Really really loved this, will def be going back for a second viewing and I was very surprised at the Real3D XD presentation. Zero complaints about the PQ and AQ in the Walnut Creek Cinemark theater I was in. Mark Ruffalo really captured the Bruce Banner I grew up on and the back and forth bantering between them all added the perfect element of levity and comedy. I would probably also make the case that this could be the best super hero movie I have ever seen.

I saw the extra scene on you tube. Not worth staying back for that when I go and see it again.

Actually, I DO remember "15 hours of superhero fantasy" from back-in-the-day; it was called: Orange Sunshine.

Looks like I'll have to trek to the French province for some D-Box action.

It's great to see so many AVSer's are enjoying the movie. I might be seeing it again on Sunday, which makes me very excited, even though I have to pay this time.
