Movie was awesome! Too bad the score was pretty much "wallpaper", I can't really remember any themes even.

Great movie! Watched it twice today!

I am a Nolan fan, and IMO, there should be no comparison to his Bat-films. They are two totally different beasts. I get tired of all the DC/Marvel competition amongst the fans. It would be similar to comparing a bio-pic of Lincoln to "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter". Furthermore, I doubt Mr. Nolan will let down the real Bat-fans.

Back to "Avengers": The Silvestri score seemed very phoned-in, much like his score for "Captain America". As was mentioned previously, there are really no major themes in the music, minus one little brass bit that appears, and gets re-worked a couple of times throughout. I used to be a big fan of Silvestri's, namely for his "Back to the Future" trilogy scores, and of course, "Forrest Gump". What happened? It seems like Silvestri doesn't even try anymore...

They should have brought back Patrick Doyle, who did an excellent job on the score for "Thor".

Movie was great. I was NOT expecting to like it.

I thought the score was quite effective in certain parts.

Agreed, he earned a spot in my collection with that one. Just got back an hour or so ago from watching, I did enjoy it, however a score did almost seem absent, at least a memorable one....

I thought the score worked. Not Silvester's strongest but It worked well. The film had no room for music anyway.

I agree with Sherief83, the film didn't quite have room for music. In this particular production, the sound effects and dialogue had to take precedence, thus leaving a tiny space for music to fill. All in all, the score worked well for this production and did exactly what it was supposed to do, support and create a particular atmosphere.

On a side note I want to address the 3-D aspect of this film. Ultimately you can go watch the film in 2-D and get a great experience as this film was not produced in 3-D. The Avengers was filmed in 2-D and then a manual process of converting to 3-D (3-D up-convert) was performed. The 3-D at some points thus isn't as strong or as well defined as a movie designed for 3-D shows (such as Avatar). So if you want to watch it in 3D, go ahead but be aware that this film was originally meant for 2D.

It's funny because there was 90 minutes of score in there. But a lot lot of sfx!

Just saw the movie in IMAX 3D - fully agree with the others, it is a blast to watch, great entertainment, good sense of humor too.

Good news for those who liked The Avengers: The sequel has officially been re-slated for 2014, instead of the original 2015 release date. It's amazing what a billion dollars in ticket sales can do!
