“Avengers: Age of Ultron” brings back Earth’s mightiest heroes and puts an end to Phase 2 of Marvel’s Cinematic Universe with a huge bang.

The long-awaited sequel to “The Avengers” is finally here and it does not disappoint.

Everyone is back: Iron Man/Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), Hulk/ Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo), Captain America (Chris Evans), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner). This time we also get new additions to the team in Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson).

In this movie, the Avengers are facing a new threat to the world and his name is Ultron, played by James Spader. Ultron is an artificial intelligence robot created by Tony to help take the on the Avengers’ responsibilities and duties and, unfortunately, it backfires. 

Ultron is a great villain. He is menacing, charming, and surprising funny. What made this movie more interesting is that you get to see the Avengers all over the world trying to put a stop to Ultron. It really gives you the sense of the global scale of the impact the avengers have on the world.

Once again, director and screenwriter Joss Whedon is able to perfectly balance a movie with a huge cast. The dialogue between the characters is just as entertaining as it was in the first movie. Every character was handled beautifully. We get to see the Avengers getting along and getting into each other’s throats, which is always interesting to see.

Every action scene in this movie gets you really excited and just makes you want to cheer. What makes them even better is that they make you burst out laughing during those scenes at the perfect moment.

There is great stunt work and really great camera work to complement the action, as well. Every single character has multiple shining memorable moments. The most memorable action scenes in this film involves Hulk and Iron Man’s Hulkbuster armor.

As for drawbacks in the movie, there aren’t many, but some the film’s situations do go by pretty fast. Some moments play out quick and just go on to the next scene. it makes you wish that the scenes would be longer to really make you understand the calamity of the situation and have it settle into your mind. But, again, these are only minor parts and they don’t take too much away from the film as a whole.

Overall. I highly recommend this movie to anyone who likes action-adventure movies, because you’ll be thoroughly entertained. And if you’re a Marvel fan, you definitely have to see it.
