Firstly i will say i had no interest in seeing this film at the cinema but i eventually did just out of wonder, i could of walked out after the first half hour it bored me that much! For the home release i thought id give it another go and rent it being all in HD and that, again it bored me! The film its self isnt the avengers its ironman 2.5 lol. The story was so so until the whole fate of the world vibe is totally broken by a very silly gag here and there (great way to destroy the fear Joss). As for the bad guys who was they? no explaination was given and as for loki he went from quite a menacing character in Thor to a comedy character with no real point in this, very poor story arc that. Action-wise again that was ok but hardly thrilling in the slightest, it was like a very dull rollercoaster ride. There was no suspense,worry or fear in what was happening, it should of been cut and edited in a more quicker,faster,snappier pace to make it more thrilling instead of just sailing along. As for the blu-ray its self i found it a very mixed bag, picture wise daytime scenes was flawless as you expect from a actual HD shot film but night and dark bits it lost it. To me it also felt like it was shot in a TV style rather then a big screen cinimatic style which goes back to my problem of the bad action pacing. The DTS:MA 7.1 i found a mess, speech was seriously weak in places, base just didnt come from where you thought it would like the hulk and huge ships crashing through buildings. Its very poor when you compare it to other big films like transformers:DOTM or Tron: legacy who's dolby truHD and DTS:MA truly rock!
Equipment this was watched on was:
panasonic BDT500 blu ray player
onkyo 609 A/V amp
But on the plus side the item 47 extra was rather amusing
