It’s all the Marvel Comics Superheros – Ironman, Captain America, The Hulk and Thor – getting together to save New York and the nation from godless aliens. But in a restaurant discussion about the movie afterward, no one in our group mentioned that the Government would nuke Manhattan to turn the tide of the battle.
That angle I found interesting if not a questionable use of my tax dollars. And in a way, it’s frighteningly possible should we be attacked by overwhelming forces from or not from this planet. What would the government save first? Itself, of course.
I won’t let you in on any more of the plot. Go see it….Robert Downey Jr. is always worth the price of the admission – a bit steep at $13, but it was in 3D so something has to pay for those funky glasses.
