    Fantastic review, this man truly appreciates art and is a break from the common philistinisim of today.

    As solid and insightful as I found your review, I feel the crowning glory was the shoehorning in of Jim Broadbent. Now I’m thinking about his craggy face and suppressing rage rather than thinking about the Avengers, so thanks.

    Superhero comics have always been – and always will be – low culture. They exist for their visual and visceral appeal. A movie based on comics is that same energy ported into a different medium. Expecting them to be anything other than what they are – popcorn films and picture books – is missing the point.
