Hello People,

I don't like this movie any more than Avengers, where there is too much fighting.

Comma before where or not? Are both okay?

Thanks.

Hi Anon,

If the clause, the part from where ... fighting only adds extra information - i.e. information that can be left out, use a comma.

  • I don't like this movie anymore than the Avengers, where there is too much fighting. (...than that Avengers movie which, by the way, has too much fighting in my opinion.)

Alternatively (without a comma)

  • I don't like this movie anymore than the Avengers movie where there is too much fighting. (...than the Avengers movie, you know, the one that has too much fighting).

Regards,

DJB

Tough one. I think what you mean is that there is too much fighting in the movie Avengers, and this movie also has too much fighting, and that is why you don't like either one. The problem is that your sentence does not exactly say that with or without a comma. It says that Avengers has too much, but it does not say that this movie does. I know, I know, you think that it goes without saying. It doesn't. I might put it "I don't like this movie any more than Avengers. They both have too much fighting."
