Avengers Age of Ultron Review

Got to see Avengers Age of Ultron and loved it!!  It’s a great movie and right up there with the original and recent strong Marvel movies like Captain America: Winter Soldier.  They have a new villain named Ultron who is an artificial intelligence created by Tony Stark and is perfectly voiced by James Spader.

He’s the kind of villain that is all bad but is extremely dominating.  There were a lot of moments where I didn’t know how they were going to get out of these situations.  I really liked the 2 new additions with Quick Silver played by Aaron Taylor Johnson and Scarlet Witch.  There is also another new character that I won’t spoil for you.

Joss Whedon has done it again with a script that is full of humor but lots of good action and tension.  All the leads are funny but have moments of growth and development.  We particularly see a new side of The Hulk and get to know more about the Hawkeye backstory.

Great music from Danny Elfman and the visual effects work great.  The climax is very exciting and like I said I really didn’t know how they were going to defeat Ultron.  There are also lots of cameos from the MCU.

I loved it.  A very satisfying time at the  movies.

As far as content there is a lot of carnage and a scene where a building is toppled to the ground with all the debris that felt a little too 9/11 inspired for my comfort levels.  There is a tiny bit of language but nothing big.  I’d say it is pretty family friendly.

Overall Grade – A- Content Grade- A

  1. Also I forgot to mention the expansion of Black Widow’s story was very compelling

      1. I’m so excited. I think we share a common philosophy. My goal is to be an advocate for film not a critic. Sure I will dislike a film but I rarely have nothing nice to say. The critic’s final speech in Ratatouille is my goal. He says “The world is often unkind to new talent, new creations. The new needs friends”. I want to be that friend

      2. I feel exactly the same way! 🙂 Well, I’ll be negative if I REALLY hated a movie but I try to be positive for the most part. Especially with Disney & Pixar! But I’m always positive about those anyway since I love them… 🙂

  2. My overall thought on this film was that it took everything that worked in the first film (e.g. the action, the humour) and combined it with fresh elements that pretty much all worked too, which is how a sequel should be handled. Glad you enjoyed it!

    1. It really did have that combination of action and humor. I want to go see it again. I’m glad you didn’t have to wait to see it like so many films. I don’t know why other films are like that.

    1. Oh I’m excited to read it! Movies that make an entire audience cheer will always have a special place in my heart.
