the avengers movie

i recall when i saw this shortly after release that i cut this one a LOT of slack.
upon recent viewing i feel that slack was overly generous and misplaced.
it's a bloated and wallowing mess of a picture, far too self-conscious and lacking in ANY of the charm of even the worst of the original tv series' episodes [and yes - some of the episodes were rather silly, but had, if nothing else, a great deal of charm and wit].
