Being from the UK has its positives and its negatives when it comes to films, I have to wait ages for the Oscar and indie films but we do seem to get all the comic book movies a week or so before America. So on the 23rd of April I got to watch the highly anticipated Avengers: Age of Ultron; the film follows the team of superheroes who have been working together for a long stretch of time after the first film and when Tony Stark and Bruce Banner attempt to create an A.I. that will protect the world when the avengers can't, it goes horribly wrong and the A.I. they created starts to plot the destruction of humanity. Avengers: Age of Ultron stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, Scarlett Johansson, Mark Ruffalo, James Spader, Elizabeth Olsen, Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Samuel L. Jackson.
There are quite a few positives to this film, which include: great acting, fun action, good story progression, great dialogue and good humour. Every character in this film felt as if they played a significant role and the actors playing them portrayed them excellently, it's now hard to see any of the characters being played by any other actors. James Spader as Ultron was perfect casting and now a memorable villian has been added to the MCU. The action in this film is as fun as ever and what makes the action scenes and the movie in general fun to watch is the character interactions and the dialogue. All the one-liners, monologues and conversations are very well written so when I was meant to laugh I laughed and when Ultron was making speeches every word resonated.
Even though this film is really fun I do have a few problems with it, those are that the plot is a little simple and some of the accents are terrible. My problem with the plot is the same I had with the first film which is that once the premise is set up the story is quite simple, I think this might be the only way to do an Avengers film without it sucking as there are so many major characters but it is definitely still worth pointing out. My other problem is that some of the accents are pretty poor especially from the twins and some of Von Strucker's guards which was a bit off putting as some of them are truly awful.
Overall Avengers: Age of Ultron was a great sequel that lives up to the first with its fun and comedic tone, so taking everything I have said into consideration I rate this film:
