NEXT AVENGERS...OR HOW TO PUT OUT A CRAP STR8 TO DVD MOVIE

NEXT AVENGERS...OR HOW TO PUT OUT A CRAP STR8 TO DVD MOVIE

Okay, there’s something you should know about me…I love teenage versions of characters. I’m a sucker for ROBIN, SUPERBOY, KID FLASH/IMPULSE. On the Marvel side their aren’t that many, but THE RUNAWAYS and YOUNG AVENGERS are awesome. If LIONSGATE and MARVEL had done a movie about either one of those two actual good young heroes story I would have been estatic. I was actually kind of excited when they announced it with the kinda good DR.STRANGE movie. So flash forward a year later and it finally came out, and it’s awful. First off the movie doesn’t play by it’s own rules, the first time we see most of the “kids” they’re at least 5 or 4(except PYM)…they create full sentences for god’s sake. But we skip 12 years later and they look about 12. If the kids on that poster look 16 or seventeen to you, you need help. The kids acted like they were in elementary school, it was confusing. The only good thing about this movie was the first couple of minutes and Hawkeye. THOR’S daughter is the worst character in the movie. I don’t remember her name…I bet its something creative like ‘THORINA’…actually I think it is something like that. I did like Cap’s kid at first and he actually acted like a young version of CAP, but he’s just so dumb it’s ridiculous. I don’t know who this is made for, it’s defintely made for fans of the AVENGERS and if it’s for kids I’d tell them to watch a good kids cartoon in SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN or LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES. This is what’s bad about kids cartoons, the story is dumb and doesn’t really make sense and it’s just bad. I’m not even going to get into the idea that CAP and BLACK WIDOW would have a kid, or that HAWKEYE didn’t name his kid after STEVE ROGERS…at least Cap named his kid after BUCKY. This movies just bad.

CHARLES’ GRADE:D

PROS:1st couple minutes seeing the AVENGERS.

CONS: The rest of the movie, the fact this movie is actually worse than ULTIMATE AVENGERS 2. The animation was awful.

The only good part of this movie, this one scene

  1. We agree. The animation quality was bad. The brats were whiny.

    We like a lot of kids animation because it is filled with good guys and bad guys and you can sit back and enjoy the fun. However we had a hard time doing that in this case.

    We felt as though they crushed on the originals for no other reason than to launch these juvenile wanna-bes.

    Anyway, here is our take on it with lots of pics and a few bits if wit if you are interested:
