Avengers: Age of Ultron (Spoiled Review)

No surprise that this film was one of the most anticipated movies of the year. Coming in at about $191 million US Box Office opening weekend doesn't hurt either. But I can honestly say Age of Ultron lacks the superior storyline and memorable moments of the original Avengers. The action scenes were great and visuals were spot on but they could not top the Hulk smashing Loki scene or even the Hulk transformation right before dispatching the Chitauri worm. My favorite moment would have to be the Iron Man/Hulk fight scene with the Hulkbuster armor. There were some things that bothered me, I didn't really care too much for the romance between the Black Widow and Bruce Banner....c'mon Marvel you can do better than this, that was pointless. The introductions of its new characters felt rushed. The reasoning and creation of Ultron lacked development given that he was evil from the beginning. Ultron is humanized to the point that he felt like just another everyday robot villain. The Vision is unveiled and lacked more screen time, of which he deserved. I understand there is only so much time allotted for this film but these are key characters. Comparing this film to the source material that was the comic books, the changes in this movie were noticeable . And that is just the thing, if I were a 10 year old (or just ignorant to the comic books) I may have liked this movie more, after all that is the market. The plot was not as solid as I would have liked but it still gets tied together at the end of the movie. Overall Age of Ultron is good but not great, especially when compared to the first Avenger film. Joss Whedon was able to balance all these characters to the point that the film comes together despite some obvious time constraints. We can only wait with anticipation and see what the Infinity War films will have in store for us. 3 out of 5 stars.
