Agreed. It's hardly like watching The Two Jakes without having seen Chinatown...

The Chitarui ground forces all had electonic implants around their head and neck, the various Avengers pulled them out killing the trooper instantly in each case, when the mothership is nuked the implants on the rest spark and fry, either a serious interupt problem or a suicide protocol built in.

It seems much like the Borg, they troops used for combat are disposable, in the event of capture or failure they selfdestruct in some form.
Or, in my interpretation, a failsafe if Lok decides to betray Thanos by closing the portal to keep Earth & the Cube to himself.

Portal is closed, no signal for mothership, Chitauru are off.

That could very well be it too, it's not like they ever truely trusted Loki.

That could almost pass for a life-model decoy.

Re: AVENGERS: Grade, Reviews, Discuss, DVD & Sequel **SPOILERS**

Question:
Every time I watch the beginning of the movie, I'm baffled. Is there more than one version of this?

I just watched it and it ends with Fury on the radio, and you can hear Coulson asking "What do we do?"

Cut to Title.

But I remember in the theater it only cutting to title AFTER Fury says "We get ready?"

Does anyone else notice this discrepancy?

I don't really recall all that well, but I seem to remember "what do we do" as well. I remember thinking the appearance of the words "The Avengers" was an answer to that question.

So, if you saw a different version in theaters, I saw the version you have now.

I've read transcripts on line that also say that Fury responds "We get ready."

C+. Evans and Downey Jr. were better than before, Ruffalo was good (but not as much as Norton and the character felt pretty forced, particularly with Stark so intelligent) and the other characters were pretty underwhelming. It would have made more sense to bring War Machine also (though I know the filmmakers would be hesitant about heroes with similar powers; I kind of wish the superheroes' strengths were more different rather than them all being vaguely equally strong).

Hawkeye and Black Widow are way weaker than the others.

Heh, I actually did that, and it wasn't confusing.

True, I meant that Iron Man, Thor and Captain America seemed equally strong despite their powers coming from very different sources.
