    Yup, the smaller frame "pocket glocks" are terribly uncomfortable (not that the 17 is much better) and have poor accuracy.

    The 1911 range is much better, my 'Baby Hi-Capa" (a 2011 Colt model) is far more comfortable and from what I've read, the real steel version is far superior in most ways to the Glock series of comparable size and weight (26, 33 etc) with .45 ACP as standard.

    I'd have much prefered her to use something more like that, but her weapons were probably the least important of any of the main 6 so guess it didn't matter.

    I never said it was a plot hole. I just wondered at the focus on her reaction.

    SHIELD has been using rayguns since the 60s, they are as powerful as the plot demands. If we can have Tony blasting everything in sight with lasers and repulsers, surely SHIELD agents can have rayguns!!

    Which is strange if you think about it. He hasn't seen a weapon fired and has been hanging out alone in a mock-up 40s gym. Why wouldn't he think that everyone had a raygun by now if Hydra had them in the 40s and he'd turned them over to the U.S. military?

    Without the power from the cosmic cube to power the ray guns they're pretty much useless. And I thought Fury said that the cube had been inactive for years.

    But then there was also the issue of that Hydra helmet. That can't be explained away that easily.

    Hulk was amazing in this movie. It was because of all the funny scenes with the character that was lacking in the previous two Hulk movies.

    Whedon just GETS all the characters. I really hope he will be back as director and writer if we get an Avengers 2.

    I'm sure they'll at least make him an offer. After all he made them a mint. :D

    Avengers 2 isn't a matter of an "if." It's a "WILL" considering Avengers made a billion dollars in one week.

    It took more than one week to make a billion dollars.

    The point stands. Its a MARVELous achievement for a CBM. I never thouhgt I'd live to see the day when CBMs are going to be the normal staple for summer movie frenzies.

    ^ What's a "CBM"? A comic book movie? They were big summer movie frenzies long before now.

    That's right it opened a week earlier in Europe and Australia.

    So, two weeks. Still pretty damn impressive.

    More to the point, Disney already announced that they're making a sequel. Not that it was unlikely it would happen after the box office receipts started coming in.
