Good stuff: current-day palpable concept of Avengers ignoring sovereign borders and their need to get in line (which ironically, Captain "America" is against), the new immature Spider-Man, the Winter Soldier (again a strong point), a giant Ant-Man (an oxymoron), the "Hey, Manchurian candidate, you're killing me" quote, the twist about Tony Stark's parents, the soundtrack, Marisa Tomei (even if for a few seconds). Weak stuff: Too long, too many superheroes, having a hard time remembering who's on whose side, rotoscoping action sequence (hurts the eyes), no major super-villain.
