Ultimate Avengers (2006)
You’re still a little man, Banner. Now, knock it off or I’m gonna squish you.
The movie starts the origin of super soldier, Captain America (Justin Gross) when he tries to stop a nuclear missile made by the Nazis with alien technology. In the process, Capt is struck by the debris and is encapsulated in ice for over sixty years.
SHIELD director Gen. Nick Fury (Andre Wise) and Dr. Betty Ross (Nan McNamara) rescue him from the ice. Dr. Bruce Banner (Michael Massee) has been working tirelessly to replicate the super technology that made Captain the way he is today.
Everybody is under high alert when the dormant alien threat, the Chitauri, comes to wreak havoc on Earth defenses. Nick Fury tries to gather up the other members of the Avengers like Black Widow (Olivia D’Abo), Giant-Man (Nolan North), Wasp (Grey Delisle), Thor (Dave Boat), and Iron Man (Marc Worden) to help stop it.
The movie lacked any sense of danger for the characters. They weren’t in peril. You don’t go, “Oh, my god. They could die at any time.” You don’t get that feeling. It’s due to the lackluster plot. The characters were two-dimensional. Just another part of the team.
Judgment: This is a disappointment on every level.
