Click The PLAY Button Above And Watch Avengers: Age of Ultron Full Movie
We find the team dealing with a threat of their own making….. a sentient robot called Ultron, who was originally designed as a peacekeeping program. Since Loki was captured, the team have been working to take down various cells of a secret society of villains known as HYDRA.
Their aim to make the world a better, safer place inspires Tony Stark to create Ultron, in order to respond to additional threats that the Avengers aren’t able to handle.
Ultron, unfortunately, takes this directive way too seriously and believes that world peace can only be achieved by exterminating humanity, and he’ll stop at nothing to accomplish this goal.
The battle between the Avengers and Ultron is further complicated by the appearance of superpowered twin Quicksilver, and Scarlet Witch, who ally themselves with the homicidal android……..
It was always going to be a tough call to match the first Avengers movie, which, in all fairness, was a monumental cinematic experience, but here, it appears that Whedon knew he couldn’t match it, realise the film would make bucketloads anyway, and just hasn’t bothered with many of the characters.
Oh yes, they have all the same screen time, but it appears that the heroes with their own separate franchises, have been sidelined in order for the humanistic side of the film to work, and in turn, it achieves it somewhat, but there is too much exposition that bloats the movie, and makes it, at times, an almost unbearable ordeal, which takes some doing, considering the wealth of characters in the film.
But the real problem with the film is its lack of urgency, and here Whedon isn’t to blame, it’s Disney/Marvel being greedy and boasting about the next phase of Marvel movies,so we know who is safe, so Ultrons mission seems a little too futile.
Where the humour in the first film was refreshing and went with the characters psyche, here it suffers the same as Thor: The Dark World Did, just too forced and unbelievable. Gone is Starks Sarcasm, Cap’s future fear, and the general banter.
But it’s still spectacular in places, the Hulkbuster Vs. Hulk battle is the highlight, bonkers and very funny, Spader channels Downey Jr. As Ultron, Frankensteins Monster to Starks Victor, and he is a perfect choice.
But the highlight of the film is Remmer, he really outshines the rest of the cast, the. It’s human character in the film, and it’s genuinely touching when he’s with his family,showing a very vulnerable side to the Avengers.
Olsen is the best out of the newcomers, Johnson is okay, but his ‘I bet you didn’t see that coming’ grates toward the end.
So all in all, it’s a crushing disappointment for such an impressive franchise, major characters are sidelined, Jackson shows up like Schwarzennegar in the avengers, and friends pop up for no good reason from other Marvel movies.
It feels like one long build up for Civil War, which does sound impressive.
But then again this sounded wonderful.
Meh-vengers, if you would…..
