My Thoughts
This movie was amazing. Action, great storyline, amazing 3D effects, humor in the right places, and an amazing cast of heroes. I was hyped going into the movie and it was exceeded. I already have plans to watch it again before it leaves theaters. I went the 12:01 showing in IMAX 3D and throughly enjoyed it. I had 4 other great friends there and the theater had an energy that was geek-esque. We screamed, cheered, and ah-ed our way through the movie.
