REVIEW | Avengers: Age of Ultron

Yes.  I'm probably the last person to see this (college is my excuse), but I finally went to see this movie this past week.  As a big lover of everything Marvel, I had very high expectations for this sequel to the Avengers.  First of all, I do have to say that it was enjoyable.  There were lots of explosions and things like that - so if that's not exactly your thing I don't think you would like it as much.  I thought that all the action scenes were perfectly sequenced and the special effects were AMAZING!  I definitely think that everything looked really cool.  

All main characters were there (i.e. Captain America, Iron Man, Hawkeye, Hulk, Thor, Black Widow) with some new characters Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch (played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olson).  I actually thought that their accents were really funny at first but quickly got used to it.

Obviously a big part of the movie revolved around Ultron, who is the villain of this movie.  Without giving too much away, Ultron is the artificial intelligence creation of none other than Tony Stark.  He was created to help spread peace, but ends up wanting to destroy the world.  Casual.

I also really liked this movie because we got to see a little more behind the scenes of some characters, particularly Hawkeye.  It was cool to see a different side to him, and it just made him even more loveable as a character.  There was also budding romance between Natasha(Black Widow) and Bruce (Hulk).  This was kind of funny to me ( my sister hated it!) but overall it was cute and it definitely added to the plot.

I would also recommend seeing it more than once, if able?  Since it is over 2 hours, there is a LOT to absorb.  Seeing it more than once will allow you to pick up everything and to understand it.

Yes, there is a lot of action, some deaths, many building explosions, and plenty of humor that make it such an enjoyable film to watch.  I know it got some criticism because of flaws(i.e. not following comic books, too much fighting sequences) but personally, I found it to be the perfect amount of funny/action/fighting, and I don't really care too much about the comic book aspect...

I would give this movie a "Go see it for the action, and some humor, especially if you love Marvel movies" rating.  I am also thinking about seeing it in 3D soon, because I think it would look KILLER on a big movie screen in 3D.

Have you seen this movie yet?  What did you think of it?
Let me know!

See you soon,
