Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.The Asgards are merely an advanced technological society which appears as magic to we lesser mortals. Yeah. Right. But Captain America has a great line, when he is cautioned about getting in the middle of a battle between "gods". Before he disregards this otherwise sound advice, he says something like, "There's only one God. And he doesn't look like that!" Throw in some motherhood and apple pie, ladies and Cap is the whole package! Viewers of the earlier movies were rewarded by staying to the end of the credits with a brief scene foreshadowing movies to come. Part way through the credits, we are given a bonus scene foreshadowing the sequel which the outstanding box office virtually guarantees, but for those who wait to the very end of the credits, (I think I was the only one during today's matinee), there is a brief vignette of, shall we say, superheroes "off the clock"? If you're in the mood for an action adventure movie, that doesn't require a lot of deep thought, but still deals with such things as courage, sacrifice and redemption, you could do far worse than 143 minutes spent in a comic book universe. Four out of five stars.
