What I didn't like about the movie is that a good portion of the plot seems to have been spent trying to find out reasons for the Avengers to work together. It did seem unfocused and "trying too hard" at times.
And something really weird was how similar the last battle in the movie was to the last battle in Transformers - Dark of the Moon. Both set in major cities (NY, Chicago), both featuring portals above the sky, with an army of aliens invading the planet, huge flying monsters, buildings being devastated, and so on. By the way, Transformers - Dark of the Moon was more interesting than The Avengers for me. There, I said it.
Hulk, Iron Man and Natasha were great. Thor was still immature, Captain America was still... a pretty bland hero that doesn't do anything too out of the ordinary (though that's almost a requirement, given his position), and Hawkeye was really good but seemed to be more of a supporting character rather than a main one.
Loki was good but at the end of the movie he got really dumb. And after getting Banner on board, the rest of the movie didn't seem realistic enough to hold my suspension of disbelief.
It still is a very good movie though, and I'm going to watch it again when the BD comes out.
