Overall liked the film felt Loki stole the show and Black widow could have had more screen time.
Loved the banter between characters and Hulks character thinks the film is great to watch.
Dislikes not knowing why Loki tries to take over earth and thought it was obvious what the ending would be but still thought it was a good film.
