IT WAS AWESOME!!!
In my experiences movie going crowds in Egypt are usually pretty subdued. I got funny looks when I clapped at the end of Tangled or The Princess and The Frog, but this movie was so good it had the whole crowd going. There were many moments the whole crowd was cheering, applauding, laughing. Like when the Hulk arrives on his little scooter, everyone was broke out clapping and cheering. It was so awesome.
And oh my God I have the hugest crush on Loki. His smile is so cute. :3 There may be a chibi Loki in my future because I absolutely love him and his chemistry with Thor is unbelievable. They were the reason I enjoyed the Thor movie, despite the incredibly boring part on the real world with the boring girl love interest.
I also loved the guy they got for the Hulk! I heard he's different from the Hulk movies actor? Anyway he was freaking awesome, every scene he was in, as a human not the hulk, you just had this feeling of tension that he could turn at any moment. Incredible. One of the best, most fun and exciting movies I've seen in a long time.
I also enjoyed Captain America, they really played off of his role as a trained soldier used to being in battle compared to Stark, for example, who's a genius but not a trained soldier. Every character had lots of great action moments, and they were all treated with respect. It was almost like an awesome fanfiction, Stark and Thor fighting, America bashing the Hulk, but not a fanficiton, it's canon! Woot! I was cheering and clapping at the end.
I haven't felt such enjoyment from a movie since LOTR, lol. It's that same kind of huge, epic, million big-name actors all togetherin one huge film that's somehow big enough to hold all their egos and not implode.
I saw it in 3D and that was fun but certainly not necessary.
