Plot wasn't a problem, what were you epecting bond villains with lazer sharks or some crap? Plot was realistic.

Acting wasnt as bad as its made out to be, itwasnt good but didnt need to be, it just had to keep the plot in motion

This was the reason it didn't detonate. The guy fired it from about 5 or 6 feet away, well within the warhead's 1300 meter arming radius.

Arming range on a Russian spec RPG is about 5-10 meters, so if he was only 5 or 6 feet away it probably would not have detonated. The arming distance thing varied a lot by the country it was manufactured in though, with some being armed pretty much as soon as they are launched.

I saw the new trailer for Dredd. Looks pretty sweet. And it looks waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay better than that god awful Stallone adaptation.

I wish Patrice O'Neal is alive to see this movie and make fun of it on Opie and Anthony

He's not bashing the Avengers, he's just frustrated that he had to go up against an over-hyped movie that was four years in the making that actually delivered on the hype.
