The Avengers: Age of Ultron Review
Quick & Dirty Movie Review.
I don’t know about you but I love superhero action movies. Granted, we seem to be inundated with them lately, and the latest from Joss Whedon and the mighty Marvel machine is currently holding most of our local multiplexes hostage, but they take me back to my childhood movie memories of the Star Wars (original, people!) and Indiana Jones trilogies and offer escapism, complete with large buttered popcorn, at its best.
To give you the plot points of Age of Ultron is sort of missing the point of the exercise because, quite frankly, I don’t care. None of that science mumbo jumbo makes any sense to me (a stark departure from my childhood movie memories) but it doesn’t take away from my enjoyment of a movie that delivers with a killer cast, sharp script and all out fun.
Are there too many characters vying for screen time in Age of Ultron? Yes! Are there one too many over the top action sequences? Yes! Do the new characters offer anything exciting? Not really!
Is the villain engaging in a menacing and over the top way? Oh yes, James Spader, you are! Is the dialogue sharp, crisp and funny? Hell, yes, you crazy bunch of super hero wanna be comedians! Is insight provided to round out characters we may not have seen enough of? Indeed so, and thank you for allowing us to care about them!
Don’t get me wrong, the movie’s not perfect and for this type of budget perhaps it should have been. But I tip my hat to Joss Whedon who has reinvented the super hero genre by delivering something so few have been able to do: sharp writing that humanizes these super heroes, allowing us to care about them and think, perhaps, we could be them. Now in my books, that combo’s way better than the one being offered at the concession stand.
Feel free to comment below and share your thoughts on Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron movie.
