When presented with the opportunity to create a peacekeeping program to protect the world and leave the Avengers to retire, Tony Stark convince Bruce Banner to help him. However, what they did not anticipate was that the program would have an ego that rivaled Tony’s and that it would take it’s role of protector of the Earth to the next level: protecting the people of Earth from themselves.
What I liked is that you got into the plot of the movie within the first five minutes. The issue at hand was presented and it steadily went on from there without any big lulls in the action. I also thought Avengers: Age of Ultron presented an array of different genres. While it’s your average action/super hero film, there was also a mixture of romance, presenting characters and relationships viewers may not know about (unless, of course, if you read the comics), as well as comedy and a touch of drama.
But what my favorite part about the Avengers franchise is, is the script. I personally think Joss Whedon is an amazing writer, creating realistic dialogue between the characters that flows flawlessly and keeps the viewer hooked. I enjoyed when there was a joke presented into the movie that it would continue throughout the movie, but it wasn’t overwhelming. They would wait just long enough for the viewer to pretty much forget about the joke before bringing it back, which kept everyone laughing and the joke never got old.
My only issue with the way they are doing these movies now, are that every movie connects to one another. Which isn’t bad, I think it’s an interesting way to create this franchise, especially since all the characters work together, but also have their own films. I just hope they don’t try to integrate them together too much because then it would be necessary to see every single movie and if you miss one you won’t be able to understand what was going on, which could be disappointing to the viewer if they don’t feel like watching every single film. There were a few things in Avengers: Age of Ultron that I didn’t understand because I hadn’t seen some of the other super hero films, but it wasn’t enough that I was taken out of or didn’t understand the entire film.
Avengers: Age of Ultron is a great film and a must see for those who are into comics and the Marvel franchise.
