I've seen it twice, first time through I was disappointed with how formulaic it was. There's also a distinct lack of a stand out character. I felt even when telling the story of a team at least one character needs a discernible arc. Think Wolverine in the first X-men. Robin from How I met your mother is in it. I didn't like that. Scarlett Johansson is marginally better than she was in Iron Man II but still annoying. Hawkeye got ripped off in terms of screen time. Everyone else played well together and the Hulk was finally awesome. three cheers for Mark Ruffalo...never thought I'd say that. Loki is less defined as a villain this time and doesn't really bring anything new to the table. pity
the second time around all expectations were gone and I was free to just enjoy the movie knowing full well what to expect. There's actually a lot to like and very fun to watch.
