Film Fans Overwhelmingly Agree: 'The Avengers' Was The Most Overrated Flick Of 2012
What movie didn't live up to expectations in 2012? The answer may surprise you. "The Avengers" was voted the most overrated movie of the year in a new Los Angeles Times poll.
The ultimate comic-book film, "The Avengers" ties together characters such as Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Captain America (Chris Evans), The Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), and Thor (Chris Hemsworth) for a big-screen franchise team-up.
Even though Joss Whedon's star-studded action blockbuster was the highest-grossing film internationally last year, some fans were far from impressed. The movie earned 85 percent of the votes to "win" the overrated contest by a landslide.
In second place with 5 percent of the vote was Ridley Scott's "Prometheus."
In a related survey, Times readers voted Jack Black's movie "Bernie" the most underappreciated film of the year.
