Avengers: Age of Ultron
Times watched: 2
*WARNING SPOILERS BELOW*
Could expectations be higher for a movie? (the answer is yes...see Star Wars The Force Awakens) That being said, I did not think it could live up to the first movie.
My take on the villains:
James Spader just gets better with age. He was incredible as the voice of Ultron. I cant think of many who could have done a better job.
My favorite part of the movie was definitely the Hulk Buster suit vs The Hulk. That was fantastic. I especially loved it when Banner said "the world just saw the real Hulk for the first time" There is a big slow down after the first 30 - 45 minutes that was weak with nothing more then filler material. Normally I wouldnt have a problem with that, but since they cut out Loki's part it became a problem for me. The other battle sequences were amazing and I personally loved Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch. Besides Ultron, Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye was my favorite overall character. I am also still firm on the belief that the farm house safe house was in Iowa!!!!
Ryan's rating: 9/10
Bonus Scene & Easter Eggs:
Oh yeah, Wakanda! Bring on Black Panther! And Thanos is pissed... Gauntlet time!!!!
But wait a sec, why is Thanos pissed? Other then the events following the first Avengers? Did he just play a part in Ultron becoming a thing and we missed it? So many more dots to connect!
