Avengers: Age of Ultron is an American superhero film based on the Marvel Comics superhero team the Avengers, produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures. It is intended to be the sequel to 2012's Marvel's The Avengers and the eleventh installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).
On the whole, with its stunning visuals and awe inspiring action sequences (especially in IMAX 3D and 3D), AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON is definitely the movie to watch this weekend. With the strong fan base of the franchise, it is expected to open to full house all across.
THE AVENGERS, once again, played too safe for their own good. Spectacular - yes. Believable - not. The new AVENGERS still remains a Saturday cartoon with a mega million budget. But, maybe, it is not such a bad thing.
It’s easy to feel that Hollywood is in a bad place with the franchise mentality at the moment and that the market is over-saturated with superhero films, but when we keep getting work of such astounding quality like this it’s hard to stay concerned. See it in 3D on the biggest screen you can find, sit up the front of the cinema and prepare for the mind-blowing 141 minutes that await. If you’re part of the steadily growing horde of comic-book movie lovers, take pride. We are living through the superhero Renaissance, what a time to be alive.
When Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr) tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and the Avengers - Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye - are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance. As the mysterious Ultron (voice of James Spader) emerges, the team must reassemble in order to stop the terrifying technological villain hell-bent on human extinction. Along the way, they confront two mysterious and powerful newcomers, Wanda Maximoff and Pietro Maximoff, as well as an old friend in a new form, named The Vision.
Sneaky superhero movie! It was another caped-crusader tradition that gave us the idea that heroes who don’t die in the line of duty live to become villains, but it took The Avengers to let it play out onscreen. The bad guys in Age of Ultron? Tony Stark and Bruce Banner. For real
