Finally saw the movie. Lots of fun, a good heart. I think having it in World War II definitely shook up the Superhero genre enough to give it a different take. Plus, it's always good when the gods cause Nazi faces to melt off.

I'd say the weak moment was Bucky Barnes' death. I knew of the character, so there was a bit of a shock that they would kill him off, but it also made sense in the story, so I wasn't all that shocked. Maybe die-hard Captain America fans were more shocked? The "goodbye" scene with the crash worked a lot better. I know he survived, but there's something sad about timetravel and everyone you know being dead. Also, it sucks that the Dodgers moved out of Brooklyn.

I think the Avengers will be a lot of fun. I'm looking forward to it. Glad I managed to see both Thor and Captain America this summer. Definitely set things up a lot better.
