Avengers: Age of Ultron Movie Review
Sometimes ideas can seem like a good thing but turn out to have bad results. Tony Stark has to figure that out the hard way. He and Bruce Banner have been working on creating a new program that would take care of the peacekeeping so the Avengers wouldn't have to. However, the program, known as Ultron, became a living and thinking being that decided the best way to change the world would be to wipe out humanity.
The story is excellent. It's evident that a lot of hard work was poured into the making of the script and the film itself. It's also a subject that's very relevant to today's society, what with the continual creating of robots that are looking more and more lifelike every day. Could there actually be a Terminator-like future where the machines rise against humanity?
The acting was top notch, especially from James Spader. He didn't just lay Ultron, he became him. The voice and mannerisms were used perfectly. Not many people could pull off a threatening, misguided voice with a slight hint of sarcasm and humor. New to the MCU is Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver, played by Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson respectively. Both take on their roles professionally and respectfully.
in conclusion, Age of Ultron impressed me from start to finish. There was never a part where I wanted them to hurry up or thought things were moving too slow or too fast. Everything flowed well and kept me interested throughout. I actually liked this entry more so than the first Avengers, contrary to popular opinion. If you haven't seen it, give it a viewing and see what you think. It may or may not be the same for you, but my experience was certainly pleasing, mostly in thanks to James Spader's haunting voice.
