Bickering heroes team up to avert a world decimating threat in this entertaining, uneven comic book film. Jumping into the action immediately with a breathless opening sequence, Avengers: The Age Of Ultron wastes no time bringing the viewer up to speed, as though you just received the latest issue of the comic book. Unfortunately, the pace makes action-free scenes plod along, such as the Stark/Banner montage of the origin of Ultron and a dreary party scene.
Thrilling and boring in equal measures, Avengers: Age Of Ultron has the very best CGI there is to offer, a hint of characterization, an over-the-top ending featuring hundreds of robots and a levitating city threatening to crash to extinguish all life on Earth and justifying assembling all these heroes, and a relatively high ratio of Avengers-based destruction. You know, Ultron kind of has a point, that the Avengers often seem like a more immediate threat to life and property than Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver, well, other than that whole hovering city business.
Anyway, Avengers: Age Of Ultron wasn't half bad, which is more than can be said for Batman Vs. Superman: Dawn Of Justice.
