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.
