What did you think of...Avengers: Age of Ultron?

05.01.2015

After breaking box-office records and adding more fuel to the superhero fire, THE AVENGERS are back, kicking off the summer movie season with AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON. Director Joss Whedon is back at the helm, welcoming the old team of Captain America (Chris Evans), Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), and Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) back into the fray, while adding a few new members, including Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), and The Vision (Paul Bettany), pitting the full crew against their robotic adversary Ultron, as played by James Spader.

These are tall boots to fill, no doubt, but so far it's looking like a fun time, if even slightly less than the first film. Reviews so far are mostly positive, but nowhere near as stellar as the first film, or even last year's CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER and GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY. Our own Eric Walkuski gave the film an 8/10 and JimmyO's video review stuck with a 7/10. So, maybe not a slam dunk, but still an enjoyable affair. It's likely to make a mint regardless and sure to continue to stoke the flames of the genre.

Keep drinking the Kool-Aid

I'm a Marvel fan but I was not impressed by Avengers 2. Ultron was a letdown of a villain (We already had enough cheesy one-liners Whedon, don't need the villain doing the same thing). Ultron's motivations seemingly came out of nowhere, he immediately went to destroy all humans mode. I wasn't a fan of the Black Widow and HULK stuff. Didn't feel natural. And if they are amping up for civil war then they really need to make Captain America and Tony Stark's disagreements a bigger deal. Also didn't

What happened with that? Hawkeye was my favorite part

Thoroughly enjoyed it. Felt a little more personal than the first one did. I did feel that because ultron was simply programmed to become what he did, it made him less interesting of a character than Loki was. That being said, I still enjoyed what James Spader brought to the character. Didn't like it more than the first one, but still rank it very highly among the better Marvel films. And the Hulk/Hulkbuster fight was pure awesome....

I enjoyed the film but my assumption that they'd balls up Ultron as a villain was unfortunately confirmed. I didn't feel any real connect between the character and Spader's voice and the look of Ultron was spoiled by their insistence on giving him lips - first Optimus Prime and now Ultron, what is it with their obsession with grafting lips onto characters that don't need them? So the look and sound of Ultron were off, and the fact that they turned his demise into weak comic relief just stripped

So the look and sound of Ultron were off, and the fact that they turned his demise into weak comic relief just stripped a great villain of any real menace. Poorly realised - that's the impression I took away from this version of Ultron. Having said that most of the rest of the film was pretty good and I quite liked what they did with The Vision and Scarlet Witch so I'd say the movie was around a 6 out of 10, but Ultron could and should have been so much more, which is a significant failure in my opinion.

I was kind of surprised and confused when...

SPOILER:
Steve was unable to lift Thor's hammer. Always thought it was canon that Captain America could lift Mjornir because the hammer would have deemed him worthy. Oh well, so much for that...

But the hammer did nudge when he went to lift it. Which is a nod to that. I forget the exact details, but Cap was always the closest of the Avengers to being worthy of Mjolnir, but it wasn't until he did some act of benevolence in the middle of a fight that he was fully worthy of wielding Mjolnir.

The movie had enough going on in it that it didn't need an extra subplot of Captain America being able to wield the power of Thor.

Fun!

Saw it Saturday Night with my son. We had a really good time with it. Ill agree it had a few issues, but I wasn't in the mood to nitpick. I just sat back and let it ride and had fun with it.

Better than the first Avengers, fun and entertaining, but still had it's fair share of problems. Between a 6 to 7 rating at best.

Once again, Marvel plays it's most familiar game with audiences, "Just The Tip". Marvel has been playing "Just the Tip" over and over and over with all of their recent films. Would Marvel films stop dicking around with us and get to the good stuff already? We have been promised a supreme evil villain (Thanos) who we've only seen glimpses of since the first Thor film, but here was Avengers 2 where once again he plays no part at all (which Whedon promised Thanos in the film), but we're only
Once again, Marvel plays it's most familiar game with audiences, "Just The Tip". Marvel has been playing "Just the Tip" over and over and over with all of their recent films. Would Marvel films stop dicking around with us and get to the good stuff already? We have been promised a supreme evil villain (Thanos) who we've only seen glimpses of since the first Thor film, but here was Avengers 2 where once again he plays no part at all (which Whedon promised Thanos in the film), but we're only teased at the very end with Thanos. Let's be realistic, Thanos won't be for another 8 films, probably. This series is taking too damn LONG in setting up a grand battle with this unknown alien guy who floats around space in a chair.
That said, Age of Ultron was better than the first Avengers film. It was entertaining and fun. Ultron was a far superior villain than Loki (who's still a little bitch). The action scenes were really good, and I do mean REALLY good. It was great to once again actually see superheroes saving civilians, something that was missing in the first Avengers film. However, the film still had plenty of problems. First being that Whedon LIED. Outside of promising us Thanos, he also promised us death. Whedon said he's not afraid to kill off any of the main characters. He said this back on Feb. 25 2013. In Avengers 2 he only kills off the new guy in the film, a person no one cared about. Next, he casted the two leads from Godzilla in his film because he actually thought they had great chemistry in Godzilla.....WTF!?!?!? The film opens with the Avengers already assemble and with Iron Man back in the suit, and with no explanations for how we got to this opening point. Which makes no sense. Star Wars sums it up in three floating paragraphs, but Marvel can't make it clear with ALL theses flicks?
But I will admit it was fun, and maybe the best Marvel Studio film since Iron Man or Iron Man 3, but that's not saying much here.

Where was the "Death, Death, and MORE DEATH" Whedon promised back on Feb. 25 2013????? As well as Thanos, outside of the one cheap neverending credits scene.

SPOILER:
Yeah, someone does die but it just so happens to be the new guy in the series. A person who no one cared if Joss Whedon killed off, because we barely knew him!

Loved it.. More complex than the first, more groundwork done for Phase 3, and just a fun time. Loved the increased roles of Hawkeye, Widow and Banner. The Avengers movies serve as turning points of the MCU. They tie in the individual storylines and move us into the next phase. This one shook up the status quo a little and set the stage nicely for what's coming. A lot happening, but a great flick.

It was ok

Better than the first film. Whedon stepping down is a good thing. Poor writer for the most part and not a good director. Movie didnt really have much happen, the story was weak - as was the first film. Salvaged by a great overall cast.

Saw it a second time, and enjoyed it more. It just takes a second viewing to fully take it all in. I mean, right from the beginning there is already a bunch of action going on. It is easy to get somewhat lost here and there.

I thought the shot with Hawkeye and quicksilvers dead body was a little strange. I mean he could've at least closed his eyes. But overall it was a great movie. I loved ultron. I thought he was a much better villain than loki. I don't know why people are trashing on him. He is exactly what Whedon and Jamse Spader said he was going to be: A psycho genius baby robot.

He was okay, but in the end the fight with Cap was his only cool moments. The rest was him talking a lot or making plans (which is exactly like Loki).

If the movie hadn't been so over-crowded (or had some of the seeds planted in the first one), they could have had more time making him a more threatening character. He killed Quicksilver while flying a plane for crying out loud. Baron Von Strucker could have done that!

I think the movie suffered from too much hype. There was nothing that would have garnered it a 10, nothing it could have done that wouldn't have left to feeling like you face wasn't blown off enough.

Fantastic

Simply fantastic. Whedon outdid himself. To take that many godlike characters and craft a story so compelling and fun is truly a gift. When I hear some of these wannabe critics trying to sound smart throwing words around like no character development and what a mess. I know they have no idea what these Avengers movies are suppose to be. The whole reason Marvel created the MCU much like their comic universe is so that individual characters get their development in the solo movies and the ones

I know they have no idea what these Avengers movies are suppose to be. The whole reason Marvel created the MCU much like their comic universe is so that individual characters get their development in the solo movies and the ones that don't have solo movies get the development treament in the Avengers movie's, during all chaos or mess as they would call it. And it's supposed to be a mess that's the whole point. You're taking all these different conferences and their personalities and putting them in a situation where they have to come together ant save humanity and the world when they can't even get a grip on their own lives. There was obviously stuff cut out but considering the magnitude of the film, I think Whedon really did an absolutely phenomenal job.
SPOILER COMING UP..
In the mid credits sequence Thanos put on the Infinity glove and says "I guess I have to do everything myself". Which leads me to beleieve he somehow has control of the mind gem and has been manipulating everybody from the very beginning. In Avengers 1 when they're all arguing, when Scarlett Witch let's Tony take the Sceptor, and when Tony and Banner are creating A.I. program that would eventually become ULTRON. So that kind of makes Tony not responsible. Hats off to Whedon and Marvel.

The Villain has an army and the Hulk fights a teamate.. Those were the only two things that were the same. And why would the main villain not have an army. That's a dumb statement. All three LOTR movies the Villian has an army, and all of the STAR WARS FILMS. Heroes always fight one another in the comics, and Hulk did not defeat ULTRON. The Scarlet Witch and The Vision defeated him. What film did you watch. Get off that Hatorade.

You're saying it's nothing like the first film at all, and it was. So thanks for proving my point. And yeah, Hulk took out Ultron from the quinjet and left him weak and let Scarlet Witch finish the job. Much like he did Loki in the first. So yeah, pretty much the same. Been there, done that. Don't try and deny it, just accept it.

Had a great time with this, enjoyed it more on my second viewing than the first! It's definitely not without it's flaws, but I think that it is such a challenge to create a cohesive stand alone story with so many big characters whilst setting up future story lines, that the minor nit-picking niggles can be easily forgiven. Bravo to Joss and the team for such an achievement and giving me such a good time.
Lots of laughs, a solid villain, and as people have already mentioned, it's really good to

Can Someone Explain Thor's Magic Cave Water Bath??

One thing has me so bothered that I can't hardly stand it. I went with a large group of people and even a major comic book fan... and no one could answer me about this.

Here's all I took away from that...

Thor has a vision from Scarlett Witch... he can't explain what he saw (NEITHER CAN I!! {A drunk Heimdall and half naked chicks everywhere???) and then they arrive at Barton's family's house... and he leaves. He goes to find the Physicist/Professor whatever Selvig... and they go together to a cave with water in it... Thor takes a bath in it... to...make him... have... the same vision... again???? He verifies the vision... I guess... and then the next thing is he shows up to electrify the medical container with the Vision inside... and the movie carries on forward...
After asking over 10 people in my personal social circle... not a single one could answer me in what the heck happened with that section.
Surely I can't be the only one that was clueless about all of that. Assumedly that's probably some kind of setup for Ragnarok maybe??? But if it is... it sure didn't belong nor did it make any sense.
It was the only moment I was completely jarred out of the movie experience. I could hardly enjoy the rest of the movie because I was trying to figure out what the hell just took place with the magic cave water...
So does anyone know what the heck took place in that moment???

No, it was complete crap. I'm guessing that's one of the parts they cut a bunch out of to shorten the movie. There probably is a reason Selvig was important, but I have no idea what it was or how they found the magic water. Besides, why would Wanda's mind control cause him to have future visions? Seriously, talk about undefined powers.....

I think you're right, definitely feels like they cut a few bits out of those scenes that would have made more sense of it. As it was, it just felt like they had to give Thor something meaningful to do, but it just ended up being confusing.

This is one of the few complaints I have about both Avengers movies. One of the strongest characters in the realm, Thor just has really unexplained absences and entrances. In the first Avengers movie he showed up out of the blue despite the Bi Frost is already destroyed. Didn't understand how or why he came back. In this movie his sudden departure is a plot mechanism with little sense. It is almost like Whedon can't figure out how to maintain his character's interaction with the team and

It was a good movie overall. I wish we saw more Hulk and I felt all the extra Hawkeye scenes were unnecessary. I was a little confused on why we even saw his family. I was expecting him to die at the end. The visuals and fight scenes were amazing.

I think Barton's family were added for the single purpose of making you think he was going to die at the end - I mean it couldn't have been more of a clichéd setup for his death than what you saw; idyllic happy young family, pregnant wife, and 'I'll finish the sun room when I get back!'.

Just so the writers could pretty much go 'ha! Fooled you!' when he doesn't die.

Before looking at anything from anyone else.

I thought it was great! Up until the first battle with Ultron. Certainly it was far from perfect with some things not being fleshed out as well as they could have (Ultrons creation in particular felt very rushed). For the second film in a row Whedon does an incredible job handling so many different charecters and in adition to giving them all cool moments, giving every charecter (or almost every one) an arc that was legitamatley well done. Man's a genius when it comes to charecters.

Man's a genius when it comes to charecters.
Vision STOLE the entire movie. His creation was one of the best scenes in the film and the charachter was terrrific (among my favorite in the Marvle cannon so far). An almost Godlike charecter and hopeful in the most fascinating way. He provided a perfect counter point to Ultrons dark, apocalyptic views. The perfect light and dark combo (the religiouse symbolism there made all the more interestign by the fact that Whedon's an atheist).
My favorite use of Nick Fury so far. His dialogue at the the farm was some of the best in both films and him showing up with a spare helicarier at the end was exactly what I want from the charecter.
Ultrons finial solution was also something I don't think I've ever seen before (for a minute I thought it was the same as Braniac's from the Superman Lives script). Did anyone else think all the time they spent saving civilians was meant to be a giant middle finger to Man of Steel? Just a thought.
Lastly not the greatest post-credits scene but the line was awesome.

Also think I liked it more than the first one. A better story all around. particularly now that the team was already together and it didn't have tospend time on that.

Sorry.

Also, might as well add that I thought the ending with Hulk was excellent and Vision just takes Paul Bettany's best role to a whole new level. I know he's going to die when Thanos needs that gen though.

Awesome

I had a blast. I actually think it was better than the first. It has its flaws but so didn't avengers 1. I think when people get over the hype and watch it a second time they'll appreciate it a lot more. Better action, better humor, better character moments. Thors side story was a bit weak and the trailer made ultron seem slightly more menacing than he actually was. Still there was so much epic awesomeness it drowned that out. Go to sleep go to sleep go to sleep!

Not quite as good as the first (but few sequels ever are) but incredibly enjoyable. Loved all the hints at the future movies coming up. But as was my one request after the first Avengers movie, it needs more Hulk! I plan on going back to see it again.

Better Than The First

The first "Avengers" was perhaps, a little more fun, but there is a certain "holy shit, the accomplished it" factor that goes into the movie (even on rewatches, as the brain chemistry still can recall those initials waves), but in terms of advancing this group as a team, world building, and characterizations this beats out the first. Ultron was a very interesting and creepy bad guy, and despite his massive amounts of power, the fact he was so singleminded (which was well handled) is what proves

Ultron was a very interesting and creepy bad guy, and despite his massive amounts of power, the fact he was so singleminded (which was well handled) is what proves to be his undoing makes for an interesting twist on the whole rouge AI cliche. Everything about Vision was perfect. The twins were wonderfully interesting, greatly acted, and their storyline (avoiding spoilers) lead to some excellent dramatic turns! 10/10

I enjoyed it around the same, or maybe more than the first. I took the fact that there is so much to write about, Joss had to consider a lot for this movie. I can understand why he would not want to continue. I loved almost everything about the film, except for the fact that it was a bit cluttered, which was expected.
I love: The first line being "Shit!". How each line someone says fits perfect to their character. The hints towards Civil War. The action was fun. Ultron was creepy and made me

I disliked: clutter, Quicksilver's accent, the odd first 5 seconds of Vision.

I think Whedon pretty much deserves an Oscar for orchestrating all those pieces of the Marvel franchise into such a coherent film. I might have enjoyed the lighter first Avengers more but this one impressed me a lot more.

"i'm an Avenger, and I must do my job"

that seemed to be a running theme in this movie, and something that applied to the movie itself. one of the major criticisms i've heard is that there was just too much going on. but i argue that all of those things were needed for the advancement of the MCU. in my head, i imagine kevin feige handed joss whedon a giant checklist of things he had to get through in this movie, and i think he did a good job given the requirements. maybe not. maybe they could have simplified a lot of things in this

Yeah, it was awesome. I have no idea what movie the haters were watching because it was great. If anything, it made me more angry at DC for forcing a whole universe of characters and concepts on their first run through the concept because so much of the simple joys of Avengers 2 was a dividends payout after years of investing in the this great thing they've built. It worked very well as a standalone thing, but it was tremendously enhanced by your own personal background with the source material.

Another great Marvel movie

I found it great with a blend of action and comedy with elements of seriousness not making it look overly dramatic. Marvel can make great films in their sleep BUT there has to be a stinker at some point. It sure won't be Avengers. It will be sad when some of the main characters leave as the likes of Iron Man who is a central part of the movie. Hope the transition goes well when it indeed happens. Until then great movie and a must see for me.

"Now this will be a good story to tell"

I loved it. I thought it was on par with the first one and even more enjoyable in some aspects. I thought Ultron was a great villain and I about died when he said "For the love of God" when Hulk showed up. Not only was the action fantastic, but the humor was bringing down the house in the packed theater I saw this in. From Rhodes trying to tell a good story, the "language" quips, zucchini, rabbits, go to sleep, and Hawkeye realizing his vulnerability, it was hilarious. The twins were a welcome

The twins were a welcome addition and I did not expect to like Quicksilver as much as I did, considering we already saw an epic scene with him in X-Men: DOFP but when he was saving people from a runaway train that was awesome. Vision was fantastic and he truly was worthy! A great addition to the Marvel canon.

Furthermore, with this weird limbo where they're opening the door to retire or let certain characters go on vacation, replaced by the Second Tier Avengers (which will obviously be ignored for Infinity Wars and they won't get their own film) plus the death was...predictable. The person who lost their life made sense from a licensing point of view. They gave all the minor "only in other people's movies" characters their due, which was nice, but also kinda highlighted how pointless their inclusion in the Avengers is. Fascinating place for them to go from here, but Ultron itself was more exhausting than exhilarating.

I'd say it was a 7.0 just because there wasn't really anything bad in it. However, way too overstuffed, leaving little gaps all over the place. There were high points (probably the coolest Thor has been in any of the films), but it was a big step down from Winter Soldier to GotG last year. Now we have the Avenger B Squad to look forward to for the first Infinity Wars movie. Oh wonderful....

It was a good movie, it was entertaining, but I can honestly say at this point I'm burnt out on the Marvel-verse. The movie was so stuffed with a convoluted story as a means to further continue and build the universe like Iron Man 2 was for the first Avengers.

If it had better character development for Scarlet Witch, Quicksilver and Vision and Ultron was more menacing and not so much of a smartass joker and they added a bit more seriousness I'd say it would be a great movie. But since I think that got cut out for more action and lighthearted comedy, I'd give it a 7/10. Hoping the extended cut is true and fixes the things I think were wrong. It was a fun popcorn movie but felt it could have been more.

I guess I'm in the minority *SPOILERS*

This movie was almost awful - huge disappointment as I loved the first avengers. Ultron was a massive letdown after all the buildup from the trailers. We were given the impression that Ultron would be a great menacing villain, but he was more of a goofball, spewing out one-liners so often it was like he knew he was in a movie. The comedy in the movie was so misplaced, and it fell incredibly flat for the most part. To give an example, after the dramatic moment when Quicksilver sacrifices himself

To give an example, after the dramatic moment when Quicksilver sacrifices himself to save Hawkeye, Hawkeye immediately makes a quip about how it's been a long rough day or whatever and then proceeds to take a catnap WHILE quicksilver is keeled over right next to him....uh. The long running joke about captain america cursing was funny at first, but this was a 2.5 hour movie and the joke continued throughout the entire thing. The romance between banner and black widow was very forced and unnecessary as it really came out of nowhere and made no sense. She then compares herself to banner, calling herself a monster for not being able to bear children?? It felt like Whedon was just going through the motions for much of this movie. This movie just wasn't nearly as well put together and fun as the first avengers.

@aerketype yeah I knew where he and quicksilver were, but it was pretty much immediately after or at least the next scene you saw of those two. black widow had said she was a monster directly after the being sterile remark, so I felt like she was referencing that, but you're probably right. in any case, the movie was just a mess.i can't see how anyone could put this movie above or anywhere near the first avengers, guardians of the galaxy, or captain america 2.

First of all, it wasn't Captain America who swore; it was Iron Man and Cap said "Language" and when other characters swore Iron Man mocked Cap by also saying "Language". It was lame and unnecessary.

Second, when Bruce Banner said he was a monster Black Widow told him that she had been sterilized "to make [her] a more efficient killing machine" presumably because she would never be able to get married and bear children. It was poignant, yes, but her remark "So you're not the only one who is

I had fun

I went into this film only seeing the first trailer. I have all the films on blu ray and the first Avengers is by far, my favorite of the MCU. With that being sad, I thought Avengers 2 was good. Just good. not great and definitely not as good as the first. I'm not saying it wasn't a fun film because I did have a good time and would still give it a 7.5 but I felt it wasn't the best follow up. I think I have to go see it a second time to appreciate more. I really wish they would focus less on

I know he's the big star and everyone loves seeing him on screen but give others the screen time too. They did make up for what they did to Hawkeye but I felt like Thor was nowhere to be found in this movie. He would pop up and then take off and then jump in when they needed him. Again, I think I need to see the movie again.

I liked the film, in a way it was more grounded than the first one and we saw more of the avengers together I just thought Ultron got a shitty deal in the end for such a good villain, Thor looked and felt like a spare part and the vision looked way too human. They are all things I can live with and I guess it's a popcorn relax and leave your brain at home film which I do enjoy. I hope ant-man gives us a good follow up film, I hear the early signs are pretty positive for it

I freaking loved this movie. Was an absolute blast from start to finish, and in the end that is all that really matters.
And yes, Hawkeye easily stole the show.

Was alright... 6.5/10

It was an entertaining romp, much on the same level as the first one. Fun and easy to watch. Ultron was a cool character, but he was a bit of a weak villain. At times it felt like the narrative was being manipulated to make Ultron a bigger threat than he actually was. The new characters were alright. No great shakes. The Vision looks like the ultimate cosplay. Not mad about him, his human eyes or his receding "hairline". I'm glad Whedon's time is up. He did a good job, but I really want my

It was a bit underwhelming and the colltarell damage is insane. But it's a solid entry to the films.

Brilliant

I was not expecting it to be better than the first film, but I came out of the cinema absolutely buzzing with excitement! The film had plenty of humour, which is what I love about the Marvel movies, and the action was spectacular. Ultron was no normal bad-guy either, he made me laugh plenty as well! Joss Whedon proves once again he is the master of the ensemble cast, juggling so many characters and giving each one ample screen time and purpose. Highly recommended.

True none of the Avengers seemed short changed in screen time. They all seemed important, I felt that Hawkeye, Hulk and Natasha got some extra attention, which was quite nuanced with the introduction of new characters as well.

I disagree with you on screen time. Thor's screen time was very limited and he would just pop in and out of scenes

Avengers 2 and Ant Man are more than the end of Phase 2: they are the end of an era. Phase 3 won't be as jokey with the Russo's taking over from Whedon and that's fine. The humor fell a little flat this time even though it was spot on in the previous Avengers movie. You get the feeling that Whedon was trying to hard.

It is worth seeing and it will make a lot of money but it's time for Whedon to move on.

A lot of fun....

Yes, the awe and spectacle of all the Marvel Superheroes in the original Avengers is gone, but this is a very worthy sequel. I thought the pacing was better in AoU than the first. Since Iron Man, Thor and Captain America get their own standalone movies, I thought it was a great choice to let them take somewhat of a backseat and give Hawkeye, Black Widow and Hulk better material to work with. My only two minor negatives : Some of the action sequences suffered from close camera angles and

My only two minor negatives : Some of the action sequences suffered from close camera angles and quick cut editing that made the action frustratingly hard to see. And after Hulk's rampage, I actually laughed out loud in the theater because the plot reminded me of "Team America: World Police" when they destroy a city and can't understand why they aren't appreciated. But all in all, the humor, the action and pacing were better than the first Avengers. Will be seeing again I'm sure.

I'll say that Loki was a better villain in the first Avengers movie, he had charm and wit. Ultron is decidedly inhuman, but excellent in his own way. James Spader's performance was terrific.
I have seen the first Avengers many times, I loved it but it really doesn't hold up too well in repeated viewings.
Avengers Age Of Ultron will definitely hold up on repeated viewings because the character work carries it. The CGI and special effects are exciting and lush, but the character work is

Cool! But..

I enjoyed the film a lot. But: Too many set ups. Kind of lost the "Wow" factor a bit. Not the best film of phase 2. But it was still a good fun movie. Going to see it again in case i missed anything. Go Marvel!

It was aight

i gave it a shot, but at this point it felt like a chore going through it all just to see how they set up the next slate of movies. I had my doubts going in and the formulaic nature of these flics didn't sway me from my expectation. Also, the CGI was much too busy at many points. Like someone said on another thread, it reminded me at times of video game cut scenes.

Good stuff!

Looks like i'm in the majority, holding the original Avengers slightly above this one, but that is by no means a knock! This one was great too, very entertaining, very funny and had some great action/emotion added in. Although the thing I feel it had working against it was that it tried to force too much into the story (are we really getting a 3.5 hour director's cut blu ray??), but I appreciated all those added backstories for the characters - especially fleshing out Hawkeye and Widow a bit

As good as the last one

The last Avengers movie had better pacing. The action and the humor though are better in Age of Ultron. I wasn't terribly amazed with Scarlet Witch or Quick Silver, but Vision is an interesting character. Wish they were doing a Planet Hulk movie between Civil War.

Liked It Quite A Bit More Than The First

The first Avengers was, too me, a good but not great movie. I like most of the individual Marvel films much more than Avengers. It didn't seem to have all that much of Whedon's personality, and his direction was somewhat pedestrian (I imagine this was due to the fact that he hadn't directed a film of that size previously. Few people have).

Age of Ultron fixes those problems. The action was much more impressive, and the dialogue and humor were what I'd expect from Whedon. I'd say it's on par

It seems like critics don't really like to give sequels good reviews, but I've learned not to trust the critics. This movie was not quite as good as the first Avengers, but only by a small fraction. What a blast! So many excellent moments in this film. Hilarious quips from Tony, Thor, Capt, Widow, etc.. including my favourite perhaps of the entire MCU so far, "You and Banner better not be playing a game of hide the zucchini down there!" Man was this one impressive. Don't listen to the reviews!

Go to sleep! Go to sleep! Go to sleep!

I'm so happy I read some not-so-great reviews before going in. I had lowered my expectations accordingly... and MAN was I pleasantly surprised! I thought that was even better than the first. It didn't have to slog through all the setup and exposition that any first film in a franchise has to and could get right to the meat of the interaction and conflict between the characters. Spader was terrific as Ultron, didn't expect him to be so funny. And Vision/Scarlet Witch/Quicksilver are all

It showed them SAVING civilians! Something that was missed in MoS.

These heroes are actually heroes!! They save the world, they stop Hydra bases, the rescue people left and right while causing a ton of destruction, but at least they were willing to die with the civilians if something went wrong. That is a superhero! Not some brooding guy who decided to turn into a CGI rubber ball and bounce around the screen killing more people than the villain.

Wow, they keep surprising me with how awesome comic book movies can be

See, this is how you do a Marvel movie. It wasn't perfect but it was 10x better than anything Man of Steel related. I still think Dark Knight is the best comic book movie, but these Marvel movies are somehow a lot more fun. This is a comic book movie, not that horrible Man of Steel garbage. There was minimum brooding, there was COLOR and the CGI was spot on. The 3D was even really well done and I usually hate 3D.

I don't understand all of the hate/dislike/contempt for this movie. It certainly had flaws, and the story wasn't all that gripping, but I enjoyed it way more than the first one. Ultron/James Spader was great and the scene with the Hulkbuster vs Hulk was one of the best action sequences I've ever seen. People need to stop expecting Dark Knight/WS/GOTG level quality when you have an entire team of Alpha characters.

I thought this was better than Avengers Assemble. The first Avengers movie had the coolness of bringing together all the franchise pieces. But plot wise the first Avengers movie was a bit stupid, yet entirely enjoyable.
Avengers Age Of Ultron was better in every way. I give no spoilers here. But I'll say that the action scenes and effects were tremendous. Even better are the quieter scenes where the characters interact and the story is told. It seems that all of the Avengers get quality

In the first Avengers movie the primary Avenger was Iron Man/Tony Stark. In this one I felt that Hawkeye was a much bigger part and a real pulse in the film. I loved the new characters, and how they fit in. The antagonist in the film was excellent. Captain America Winter Soldier was such a good film with such a great plot, but Avengers Age of Ultron could give it a run for its money. The writing was great, the dialogue was funny and smart.

Wasn't as good as the first, but man, I still had a great time. Perhaps the lower RT score made me second guess the movie, but I shouldn't have. While there were times in the middle that the movie seems a bit rushed (probably could've introduced Vision a little better), the way this bad boy ended made me want to see the next film immediately, which gives it an "A" in my book!

I saw it with my sister and my partner, and between the three of us we had three differing opinions. She liked it, he didn't, and I liked it, but with reservations. It's a big unwieldy mess of a movie, but it's a damn good time. The robot characters, Ultron and Vision, were the best.

It was a fun blockbuster summer flick but far from greatness. It just didn't feel like a very organic story progression to me. Whedon's try to give every hero equal opportunity to shine was already a stretch in the action sequences but for me fell apart with the in part very forced character scenes. I absolutely did not care about Hawkeye's family live. It was such a transparent plot device to give this pretty detached story of superpowers and half gods some grounded human moments that it had

I absolutely did not care about Hawkeye's family live. It was such a transparent plot device to give this pretty detached story of superpowers and half gods some grounded human moments that it had the exactly opposite effect on me. And there was so much gadget play in the action that it took away from the tension. They just pull new stuff out of their sleeves all the time: oh look what we have built since the last movie and is now saving our ass without ever properly introducing this element before, like a new airship or a Hulkbuster suit. And still Marvel fails to present a really strong and interesting villain that is not Loki. Ultron was very well executed but is just based on a very mundane concept.
Still, it was a very entertaining movie. I just expected it to be more of a grand Phase 2 finale which it simply was not.
And the credit scene just underlined that: "Hey guys, it is me, Thanos. Remember? I am the endgame you now may progress towards after you beat out that Robot mini-boss that wasn't really connected to the overall story. So stay tuned..."
I give it a 7/10

Oh and for the next Marvel film:
please make the final encounter's threat about anything other than something huge falling from the sky

Was blown away from start to finish, a sequel that lives up to the first but injects its own flavor to make it one of a kind! Cap was a boss! Hulk stole the show of course ! Along with that hulkbuster! Vision? Holy shit PLEASE give us more! Iron just as awesome and a smart ass as usual but that's a good thing! Ultron was intimidating, Hawkeye and widow felt important and kicked ass, and the twins were crazy as hell !! Don't mess with the scarlet witch! Loved the fact that they were more of a

Loved the fact that they were more of a team this time around and also the use of our favorite heroes mastering there abilities to really fuck shit up, please stay after the first couple minutes after the movie! Only ups the ante and gets the anticipation much more unbearable to wait for! Civil War is next but first Ant Man thank you marvel and the creative team for making this see the light of day!

Absolutely loved it. The only small issue I have with it is that the character of Ultron felt rushed. but it was everything I hoped it was for. "Fine, I'll do it myself." Awesome.

Its in theaters here since 2 weeks and I havent seen it yet nor am I that enthusiastic about seeing it (unlike my urge to watch the first one).Maybe that agressive Marketing campaing with all that teasers and Trailers and Clips spoiled and revealed too much for me? I dont know. Im curios if just I feel that way?

I agree. Enjoyed the first, really liked Winter Soldier, but this looks like the first with a new villain and more destruction. I'm sure I will see it eventually, but probably for $3.50 at cheap theater. Just not that excited for it.

I dont see what everyones problem is with

this and iron man 2 having some part of the running time devoted to setting up the future of the franchise. It has to happen and it makes the pay offs that much better in the long run. Jimmy said he felt like this was an episode of Avengers rather than an Avengers movie. Well.....what do you think the entire MCU is? Every movie is a single issue in an overarching narative. So the fact that it felt like an episode of something larger is perfect and works in its favor.

I agree. In all honesty, after watching Iron Man 2 again recently, it really doesen't deserve all the criticism it receives. Despite some of the flaws, I thought the movie and story did a great job of showing Tony's growth as Iron Man while facing the dilemma of not being able to save the world by himself.

Enjoyed every minute of it. Whedon did an excellent job of balancing everyone's character arc and having each and every character display their own little payoff moments throughout the film; especially Renner as Hawkeye this time around who feels like an almost new character entirely.

The scope is definitely much larger this time around and it shows from the very first battle from which the film opens on. The film is filled with non stop action after action and like I stated before,

The scope is definitely much larger this time around and it shows from the very first battle from which the film opens on. The film is filled with non stop action after action and like I stated before, everyone has a chance to shine and show their worth; with a lot of fun one liners as well.

The news additions to the film and Avengers team were definitely a welcome change of pace. Aaron Johnson, and Olsen were a lot of fun to watch as Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch, and displayed much better chemistry with one another than they previously did in Godzilla. Plus the effects with Quicksilver were simple and positive enough to differentiate himself with X-Men's version of Quicksilver.

It was just nice to see the team really put to the test this time around from a more personal perspective; whether it be from Scarlet Witch messing with everyone's memories and/or from Ultron and his numerous drones. And seeing the after effects and consequences with each charcater and where each and everyone member lies in the end only makes the anticipation for Ant Man and the beginning of Phase Three only that much greater (especially with Thor and that mid credits scene).

Can't praise it enough and in my personal opinion, I thought Renner stole the film as Hawkeye. It was nice to actually see more about Clint's life and background and to have him embrace the true spirit more of the character. Hope to see more of this depth or at least more pivotal and character moments in future Marvel films.

I'm surprised I feel somewhat alone in saying this but I thought it was way better than the first. The action was 10/10, the writing was 10/10, and the juggling of it all was 10/10. It definitely had its weak points, but they were seriously tiny compared to its strengths. The twins were EPIC. Vision was different than I imagined, but still super cool and very different than the rest of the characters. It was also hilarious, and the cameos were very well done. I'd give it a 9.5/10. Extremely fun

Couldn't agree more. From the reviews, I kinda just thought it would be adequate entertainment. But I loved it. Will have to see it again though because there was sooook much happening all the time!

That's what made the first Avengers so much damn fun to see in theaters. I saw it four times and with each viewing I saw and caught something different that I didn't the previous times.

I think this was easily better than the first installment. That may have been that we already knew the characters a bit, but Joss spun his magic again and gave us more character depth in every single scene. Jackson's Rabbit line brought the house down literally for 20 seconds, we could not even hear the following dialogue.
The action was great, focused and had purpose, not just action for actions sake. And we better not hear any complaining from Renner this time, he rocked it.
Nice bow out

Nice bow out for Downy as well, will be interesting to see how they handle it in the future.
Solid 10/10

Yeah I thought it was great considering how much there was to juggle - referencing the old, setting up the new and future - giving all the regulars a reason to be there plus introducing fresh characters. Phew! It wasn't flawless but given what Whedon needed to accomplish and that I had fun with it I'd say it's a Herculean feet. Well done to them!

What an absolute thrill ride!

Honestly, I think The Avengers was, objectively, a much better-made film - the plot was streamlined, the script was much tighter, there were barely any extraneous or unnecessary moments, and not a single scene was wasted. Age of Ultron felt bloated, messy, and a bit aimless sometimes...but man, when it works, it really WORKS. The action is incredible, the new character additions are awesome (Vision, Scarlet Witch, Ultron, and the new improved Hawkeye steal the show), the interactions among the

The action is incredible, the new character additions are awesome (Vision, Scarlet Witch, Ultron, and the new improved Hawkeye steal the show), the interactions among the team are sublime (I'm 110% on board with Bruce-tasha. Marvel's best love story yet), and the tone is pretty much a direct continuation of the 1st film. Just really, really great stuff all around, even if it is a bit unwieldy. But it's a sequel that tries to go bigger and louder than the original, and it (mostly) sticks the landing. It's a perfectly WORTHY sequel to its predecessor (which I consider a solid 9/10), and I'd probably give this an 8 or 8.5/10.
