Avengers: Age Of Ultron – A Review
You probably know by now that I am a comic book movie fan. I love them. I buy them. So it should not surprise you that I went to see the new Avengers movie this weekend.
I have seen all sorts of reviews of this movie. Many have loved it. Others have been lukewarm. I have even seen one review that had it ranked as one of the lowest of all of the Marvel Cinematic Universe films. Of course when I saw how that person ranked them, I totally discounted their review and ranking.
The original Avengers movie was amazing. It brought together all of the heroes that had appeared in solo films and put them together. Nothing like it had ever been seen before. It ranks among the greatest superhero films ever.
So, how did I like the sequel?
I loved it.
It started off with action right off the bat. It slowed down when it needed to. It introduced new villains and characters. The Avengers faced incredible obstacles.
It was good to see some of the lesser known characters have an opportunity to shine and develop.
Was it a perfect movie? No. I haven’t seen a perfect one yet. Was it Marvel’s best? No. Captain America: Winter Soldier might be. However, that’s part of the problem I see with some of the less stellar reviews. They are comparing each movie instead of realizing that each Marvel movie is really a chapter in a larger story they are telling. According to sources, that story is already planned out through the mid-2020’s.
Will everyone like Age of Ultron? No and that’s ok. However, if you love comic book movies, you will like this one.
