Avengers Age Of Ultron is a 2015 superhero film directed by Joss Whedon and was distributed into theaters by Marvel Studios

Knowing that Infinity War is almost here, I decided I would give the rest of the older films of the Marvel cinematic universe a re-watch again.

The Plot: When Tony Stark jump-starts a peacekeeping program –Ultron, and things go terribly awry, forcing Stark, Thor, Captain America and the rest of the Avengers to reassemble. As the fate of Earth hangs in the balance, the team is put to the ultimate test as they battle Ultron, who is hell-bent on human extinction. Along the way, they encounter two mysterious and powerful newcomers, Pietro and Wanda Maximoff who have a personal grudge with Stark– as well as mind blowing powers.


Chris Evans as Steve Rogers: The leader of the Avengers, Steve wants nothing more than to protect humanity at all costs.

Robert Downey Jr as Tony Stark: Back in his armor after a short break, the invincible Iron Man is shown to still be very vulnerable following his trip through the wormhole in the first Avengers.

Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner: Genius scientist and huge green monster, Bruce struggles to find how to use his talents to save the world instead of destroy it.

James Spader as Ultron: An artificial intelligence created by Tony Stark and Bruce Banner to pilot a peace program. Ultron is soon overwhelmed with a god complex, and now desires to pacify the Earth by eradicating humanity.

Quality: With great CGI and beloved chracters, Age of Ultron is a fun but corny movie. The quips in the first Avengers were more natural and situational while in this film during moments of what should be deep drama oddly timed full on jokes are told. Ultron a supposedly threatening villain isn’t a big threat and is too humerous to be scary. The film is also overbloated in sequel set-up instead of focusing on the story at hand. The film overall does gel together and seeing all the heroes together kicking ass is always enjoyable.

Conclusion: Avengers Age of Ultron isn’t as good as the incredible first outing, but is still fun and filled with super hero spectacle. The film also sets up a lot of important drama in the Marvel universe that has and will lead to important future conflicts.

Rating 8.5/10
