The Avengers’ play

No, I don’t mean a stage play based on the Avengers (but, hmm….).

First off, NO SPOILERS.  I am going to mention one line that is repeated frequently in the movie, but reveals nothing about the plot… at all…

I saw The Avengers twice this week.  Once as a work outing, and once with Sara, Juliann, and Brad.  Something I noticed just slightly on the first viewing was the slight repetition of a line.  The second time through I listened for it.

The line, or rather the word, is “play”, as in “So that’s your play” or “What’s your play?” or “That was his play all along.”  I didn’t keep a count or anything, but I feel like it was a least a half a dozen times by various characters.  I guess things like that sneak in when you have one person writing a screenplay for many characters.  It wasn’t that weird.  But I did notice it, and it bugged me a little.

That said, I did enjoy the movie, and I would generally recommend it if you’re into super-hero movies.  It’s very well done.  But if you haven’t seen it yet, listen for “the play.”  It pops up a lot.

    God, you would be an excellent writing critique partner. Though I wouldn’t get away with half of my word repetition with you critiquing ;-P
