Summary

The fate of Earth hangs in the balance of the Avengers after they reassemble due to Tony Stark (Downey Jr.) jump-starting a dormant peacekeeping program called Ultron. Along the way they meet two newcomers, Pietro (Taylor-Johnson) and Wanda Maximoff (Olsen).

Is The Plot Interesting? 

I personally thought that Marvel couldn’t have picked a better plot to continue their franchise. It’s true to the characters and I believed that what happened could have happened if this universe was real.

Is The Acting Good?

With its big cast, the movie could have easily been let down by its ability to showcase each character but I think this is one of the movie’s stronger points. Each character is portrayed and developed really well.

Is The Directing Good?

While the directing isn’t the best we’ve seen from Joss Whedon, it’s good enough that it has some effect on the movie’s overall tone and style. I think it helped that Joss Whedon came into this project with experience from directing The Avengers.

Is The Cinematography Good?

The cinematography is just as good as you’d expect it to be from a movie on this scale. It’s very sharp and to the point. It follows the action clearly so you never miss a thing and know exactly what’s happening.

Is It Worth Watching?

Avengers: Age Of Ultron, while not as good as it’s predecessor, is worth a watch. Each of the characters get time to show us what they’re made of and the action sequences are also very good.

4/5

You get hurt, hurt ’em back. You get killed… walk it off.
