When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and it is up to the Avengers to stop the villainous Ultron from enacting his terrible plans.

Check out my SPOILER FREE Age of Ultron review here!

Being a sequel, no time is wasted establishing characters, how they met and establishing teams - it just starts straight away with the story and action.

I love how it seems that they have been working together on missions since we left them in the first film, the team is more unified and understand how the others members work.

I really enjoy watching this cast on both the big screen and all the press they do together, from everything you see, it seems they are close friends, which translates to the screen.

I loved the introduction of Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen into the Marvel Cinematic Universe and I really hope we see more of them in the future.

And yes, I'm well aware Quicksilver died but anything can happen in this universe and I really hope it does because I really enjoyed this Quicksilver over the one in X-Men: Days Of Future Past; the acting, the speed blur, the costume and pretty much everything!

I found Ultron, voiced by James Spader, to be absolutely captivating; his voice, his quirks and mannerisms. Definitely captured my focus whenever he was on the screen.

I'm glad we got to see more of the characters that don't get their own films (Black Widow, Hawkeye and The Hulk) and weren't the focus of the first Avengers film. I was convinced Hawkeye was going to die even before seeing the film but when they introduced his family, even more so and was thrilled when he wasn't!

I also liked that Clint and Natasha have more of brother/sister relationship than a romantic one and that she is a part of his little secret family, which was another thing that I like about this film; not everyone had to know everything there is about him.

One thing I love about all the MCU projects is the ability to be funny without losing it seriousness or without being tacky and there are so many funny moments in throughout this film.

There are definitely future glimpses into the future MCU projects like Civil War, including which side some of the characters may head towards, and Black Panther.

Another thing I love about the MCU is that most of it, is realistic from the costumes to the characters. As stupid as this may sound; if this was going to happen now, it would look like this - there are no stupidly over the top scenes and over the top costumes.

I was happy to see the team change at the end. As much as I may like a character, it's always good to refresh a team like this in both movies and TV shows to stop the stories from getting stale and it's not like you're never going to see these characters again.

If you love the Marvel Cinematic Universe then you will love this! Will not be the only time I see this in the cinemas, will probably see it at least two more times!
