I was pretty excited to see Avengers: Age of Ultron, but I knew that I had to keep my expectations in check because it’s not every day that you get to watch one of your favorite comic book superheroes battling evil geniuses and terrorists on the big screen. Fortunately, the film did not disappoint! Here’s my review of Avengers: Age of Ultron, including what worked and what didn’t work for me. Movie Review of Avengers: Age of Ultron
Table of Contents
It’s hard to believe but Marvel has created another superhero film that fans have raved about. The movie Avengers: Age of Ultron can be described as fun, funny, and has a lot going on. You will want to keep your mouth shut until you see it because there are so many spoilers. There is no way I could write all my thoughts down in one paragraph. Instead,
Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark/Iron Man is amazing and he is a big part of why I saw this movie in theaters so many times. He definitely deserved that spot on Time Magazine’s list for 100 Most Influential People in 2015. Also, Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch was great too! I wonder if she got paid more than Chris Evans (Steve Rogers/Captain America) to be in Captain America: Civil War?
Summary of Plot Points
First, let me say that I don’t normally write movie reviews, but I was asked to do one on Avengers: Age of Ultron. This is a film you really need to see in a theater because it does such an incredible job at creating realism and realism for superheroes. When you watch it at home, all you get is a little portion, which doesn’t quite give all the visual flair from scenes.
Feelings About Movie
I’m a huge Marvel fan so I was pumped for hours before it came out. As soon as it ended I was already thinking about watching it again. The movie takes place not long after The Avengers and has Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Black Widow, Hawkeye and Hulk trying to defeat another robot created by Tony Stark called Ultron who has a new plan to destroy mankind.
8 reasons you need to see Avengers: Age of Ultron
Avengers: Age of Ultron opened in theaters May 1st, and has already smashed box office records with its estimated $187 million debut over the weekend. If you’re like most fans of the Avengers, you’ve probably already seen it multiple times in theaters or maybe you’re planning to go see it again before it leaves theaters (like I am). If you’re thinking about going to see it, here are 8 reasons why you need to make sure you see Avengers: Age of Ultron
1) Incredible special effects
The effects are absolutely phenomenal, and if you want to get a sense of what they can do, watch them in 3D (trust me on that one). It’s one thing for a film like Iron Man 3 to have amazing special effects; it’s another for it to be second only in its category (to Gravity) when compared with all films ever made.
2) A Satisfying Conclusion Movie Review of Avengers: Age of Ultron
The good news? The non-Iron Man/Cap movie is superior in almost every way. It has memorable, three-dimensional characters (all right, two and a half), mind-blowing action sequences, stunning special effects, witty dialogue and a satisfying conclusion. In short, it’s just fun. Yes, Age of Ultron is significantly darker than its predecessor and features at least one major character death—but hey! It’s no more serious than The Dark Knight or any episode of Buffy.
3) Laugh out loud moments
The film is full of comedic moments, especially thanks to the chemistry between Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans’ characters. Both actors have a great sense of timing and they’re both very funny on their own—but put them together, and it’s magic. Their relationship was by far my favorite thing about The First Avenger (and its sequel). There are several funny scenes featuring these two; let me know if you enjoyed them as much as I did!
4) New Characters Movie Review of Avengers: Age of Ultron
Fans got their first taste of Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch, Chris Hemsworth’s Thor, Aaron Taylor-Johnson’s Quicksilver and James Spader’s nefarious Ultron in The Avengers. In Age of Ultron, Joss Whedon is taking his cast to new heights with plenty more screen time for each character.
5) Joss Whedon Directs Again
The Avengers filmmaker, who previously helmed 2012’s The Avengers, returns for another go-round. Age of Ultron marks Whedon’s biggest film yet, both in terms of scope and budget—the superhero ensemble boasts a roster filled with big names like Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson and Samuel L.
6) Great Laughs
We’ve all seen Marvel’s The Avengers and Iron Man, Captain America, and Thor. These movies made us cheer for our favorite superheroes. If you didn’t catch them in theaters when they were released, make sure to watch them! These are action-packed flicks that will keep your heart pumping throughout. Watching it just once won’t be enough because there is so much more than meets the eye! Be prepared to laugh while fighting bad guys with superpowers!
7) Incredible Storyline Movie Review of Avengers: Age of Ultron
The opening scene alone will have you hooked for a few hours. The story seamlessly continues from The Avengers, and we’re happy to say that your favorite characters have returned! (We won’t spoil who though, so be sure to catch it in theaters!) If you loved Iron Man, Captain America and Thor as much as we did, then we think you’ll love seeing them again in their second outing. And speaking of returning favorites…
8) Fantastic Action Scenes
With all-star cast such as Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, and Chris Evans, there’s not a dull moment in Avengers 2. Be prepared for more car chases, fight scenes, and explosions than your brain can handle. The latest Marvel flick is filled with great action that will have you on your feet cheering. (You’ll definitely want to stay until after the credits.)

The news was revealed at Comic-Con by Joss Whedon, who also let slip that she’ll share scenes with brother Quicksilver, played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson in X-Men: Days of Future Past.

Significance of Age of Ultron in real life Movie Review of Avengers: Age of Ultron
During a speech by Nick Fury at Tony Stark’s mansion, he mentions that the first known use of an atomic bomb occurred in New Mexico on July 16, 1945. It was an accident, triggered by a test we’d mistaken for a weapons test. After that war ended we moved on with our lives…we were all changed…and they were too. We couldn’t accept that what we had done was right so we convinced ourselves it wasn’t.
What brand and colour of nail polish does Black Widow wear in the party scene in Avengers Age of Ultron?
And if that weren’t enough, there’s a shot of Natasha Romanoff (Black Widow) at a party with an accent nail painted bright red. Why? Because she was in hiding for so long, she forgot her old style. She created a new identity and a new color as part of it. She wasn’t allowed to be herself; now she can and does express herself fully through her style—even literally.
What is the name of the dragon machine in Avengers Age of Ultron?
The Hulkbuster Iron Man suit is Tony Stark’s brand new Hulk-sized battlesuit. When he first shows it off, he calls it his hulkbuster. The problem is that no one has yet seen that name in action. Fans saw it for about one second when Tony called his team, but then we didn’t hear it again.
