Avengers: Age of Ultron Review

Synopsis:

When Tony Stark and Bruce Banner try to jump-start a dormant peacekeeping program called Ultron, things go horribly wrong and it's up to Earth's Mightiest Heroes to stop the villainous Ultron from enacting his terrible plans.

Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) is an American superhero action adventure film that was based on the Marvel Comics superhero Avengers team. It is also the sequel to The Avengers (2012) and is the eleventh installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). Director and co-writer Joss Whedon (The Avengers (2012), Toy Story (1995), Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1997)) did a good job executing this movie, but it was not my favorite Avenger movie. The film contains violence, force field, electromagnetic pulse, bridge collapse, a reference to Odin, building collapse, mayhem, epic battle, futuristic aircraft, talking robot, superhero team action heroine, and sexual innuendo. A few other things the film contains are the Incredible Hulk, artificial intelligence, Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, super villains, self-sacrifice, hallucination, scepter, megalomaniac, evil robot, wisecrack humor, super speed, man versus machine, and a surprise ending. I personally did not enjoy this installment as I did with others and will not see this movie again because it leaves a bad taste in my mouth, With all said, I do recommend Avengers fans to give this film a try because it might be an enjoyable experience for you.

Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr. - The Avengers (2012), Iron Man (2008), Iron Man 3 (2013), Sherlock Holmes (2009)) and the Avenger team raided a Hydra outpost. The Hydra outpost was lead by Baron Wolfgang von Strucker, who has been using Loki’s scepter to experiment on humans. Skip a few action scenes and the Avengers retrieve Loki’s scepter and apprehend Strucker. Stark and Banner used an artificial intelligence that is in the scepter’s gem to complete Stark’s "Ultron" defense program. The sentient Ultron attacked the Avengers after eliminating Stark’s A.I., J.A.R.V.I.S. because he thinks that he has to eradicate humanity to save Earth. Ultron (James Spader - Boston Legal (2004), Stargate (1994), Lincoln (2012)) escaped Stark’s headquarter with the scepter and uses it to upgrade his body and to build many robot drones. Skip forward and we have a whole bunch of action scenes thrown at us with some being entertaining and some being a big blah of a mess.

I gave this movie a six because a few of the action scenes were mind blowing although a few parts of the film appeared to be dragged on at a slow pace. The movie just does not work for me, and I actually regretted seeing it because it does not do justice to the other films in its franchise. The actors did an okay job except for Robert Downey Jr., who did a fantastic job with his role - could not have been better. The special effects/CGI were good but could have been better with the budget they had as well as the costumes and editing. Overall, watch this movie because kids will enjoy it for what it is and so will some adults.
