Movie Review: Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015)
Marvel Comics is out with another Avengers, and this is as exciting as the first. I thought I might hit overload with all the action taking place. However this movie also has some humor and some drama mixed in. We discover that Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) has a family. The Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) is still caught up with "I can't trust myself," and Iron Man (Robert Downing Jr.) is not willing to listen to anyone's advise, which gets him in trouble as Ultron (James Spader) is born. Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) is in love with the Hulk, and using this love to control him, at times. We learn more about all of the Avengers, (other than Hawkeye) when they are put under mind control by a new nemesis, Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen). Another nemesis is the the witch's twin, Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) who has incredible speed. Thor (Chris Hemsworth) also deals with past issues so he is more effective in the present. Captain America (Chris Evans) is everyone's favorite leader. He too deals with issues of having outlived his time. We are also introduced to a new character, Vision (Paul Bettany) who is the physical version of Iron man's computer, Jarvis. Fury (Samuel Jackson) also shows up, and his support is needed in the end. This movie is lots of fun as our heroes try to save the world with as little collateral damage as possible.
