Avengers: Age of Ultron was the movie that topped all movies. I don't want to say that it's the movie that could rule the world, because I think Ultron heard me.

Yes, I heard you. Trying to rule the world is my job.

Ok, settle down, Ultron. Now here's my review.

The Avengers face against Ultron, the peacekeeping program created by Tony Stark and Bruce Banner. As you can tell, he's keeping anything but peace. As you can tell, he's not such a friendly guy. Not Thanos bad, but he makes Red Skull from Captain America: The First Avenger look like a nice, old man with a bad face rash. And believe me, that's saying a lot.

Let's deliberate on Ultron a little bit. Ultron is voiced by legendary actor James Spader, known for roles like Daniel Jackson in the original Stargate starring Kurt Russell, and the main character 'Red' Reddington of ABC's The Blacklist. In the movie, Ultron is obviously a sentient machine, but as far as the actual movie goes, James Spader broke the boundaries of normal sentience. It was almost like he was an actual person.

When we think of sentience, we think of machines with the ability to think somewhat for themselves. And Ultron really knows how to think for himself. Let me just sum it all up: he's pretty much a mechanized mob boss. Just with fewer thugs. I liked it. Hope that makes up for what I said before, Ultron.

Next, Hawkeye. What a guy. He's been keeping a secret that I shall not speak of for another month. All I can say is that this secret certainly changes the way you think about him. Another thing I can say is that Linda Cardellini's character is revealed. And, let me tell you, it's a bombshell.

Next on the menu, the twins. Pietro and Wanda Maximoff, Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch. I have to say, when I say these two in action, my jaw dropped in amazement in how strong Wanda is. I hope Magneto was watching. He'd be proud of how strong she is.

Iron Man is next up to bat. You can say that this guy has an armor for everything. Never knew he had a contigency armor for Hulk. Who am I kidding? Of course I knew. And seeing this armor in action; wow. This armor is strong enough to level an entire city. In fact......

And you can't have a movie like this without our favorite partner of Iron Man, the returning War Machine. That's right. Iron Patriot is out of the picture, considering the fact that the name itself brings back horrible memories of what happened in Iron Man 3.

And, finally, my favorite.....Vision!

Who was formerly JARVIS, Iron Man's personal AI. Vision can fly, project beams from his forehead with the aid of a certain stone, and phase through solid matter. Played by Paul Bettany, who originally voiced JARVIS in previous films.

All in all, this movie was definitely worth watching. And the end scene wasn't so bad either. But that's a story for another time and another place.

Hope you enjoyed my review! Don't forget to comment on what you thought of the movie!
