Remember the times when Comic Book films were a thing? Yes it is still happening and pretty swell at that. We come to another Marvel Film in the Books, from genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist Tony Stark to The Vision. Who? Just another character for Marvel to make some small change in Merchandise. That is the idea thought from most people. But as myself and probably a million other folks... That is absolutely not all true but rather extremely significant to this MARVELous Universe that has been created since Stan Lee could make a suave signature (it's pretty awesome, seen him twice). In this installment of Superhero avenging, we come back to the world of Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Hulk, Hawkeye, Black Widow, even Nick Fury, also some added guests of Quicksilver and Scarlett Witch (Twins) and a terrible creation of Ultron, an artificial intelligent wacko bent on destroying the Avengers and the world. Yes. We've heard the story. All Marvel films have it, in fact all action movies have that basis, and that's not bad at all. But with this action addition a new character brings a whole other level of wit, and that is The Vision. In the Marvel world created by Hank Pym (Ant-Man) who was created actually by Ultron but in this Cinematic Universe is created by Iron Man and Ultron, with some thunder love from Thor. Two different Worlds, two different topics, that we will not cross paths with because this would not be a review rather a debacle of extreme proportions. The Vision is created to stop Ultron, and can wield Thor's Hammer (How Exciting!) because no one is worthy except an android of Stark's and Jarvis (Stark's personal Copilot) but another thing we will not touch. The Avengers avenge greatly! and on to another Marvel film to place everything carefully and properly to set up Infinity War (also another big thing to not cross with). See where this movie went? Of course it was a fun movie, extremely entertaining, but just another filler for the next continuation, until the Marvel universe is whole, as of right now it's like an octagon.
The characters we know. Well the standard Marvel Heroes we remember, but as of now we know well. The CGI is spot on, the choreographed fights scenes are in fact the highlights, such as Hulk vs Hulkbuster... that was perfection and the end battle of most movies, was sweet, fluid bliss. It was almost a transformers movie (oh my goodness) but to the rescue the charm and extreme wit of each character is highlighted making everyone a spark in this galaxy; except the villain. Most Marvel Villains are dull flat specs of dust, but Ultron prevails as the top baddie. The Hulk and Iron Man are my heroes, but after this film everyone should be thinking The Vision... is our Vision now. With each character bringing something to the table, throwing in their two cents, and moments of giddy pleasure one cannot pass up another Avengers filled film. Including the huge foreshadowing into the next installment of Cap and Iron Man for Marvel's Civil War, and bringing in The Vision, Scarlett Witch, The Falcon, and War Machine (Yes they are briefly in this) as the New Avengers; it is a small setup into another bigger picture. The Marvel Universe can do no wrong. With all these characters tagging along, it leaves you kind of stuffed to take in any new information but we already know them, and Joss Whedon gives them deeper zones that we recollect and remember oh yes this and such happened of course, so not entirely stuffy rather joyous puffs into their further dangerous lives. If you love comic books (everyone) and a great time, please watch this. Moments of Aw, Times of shock, and minutes of great entertainment make the Avengers Age of Ultron another popcorn pleasing, crowd engaging Film of Marvel. Who would not want to see Iron Man make the Hulk go to sleep with a flurry of beatings to his face?
