Avengers: Age of Ultron is one heck of a superhero orgy as the mighty six – Iron Man (RDJ), Capt America (Chris Evans), Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) come face to face not only with the invincible Ultron, but various characters like Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Vision (Paul Bettany).
Following S.H.I.E.L.D’s dissolution in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, as a preemptive measure to counter a possible alien attack that happened in the past (The Avengers 2012), Tony Stark creates a global peace initiative, which is an artificial intelligence Ultron that goes rogue.
It decides to kill the Avengers, citing world peace. The superheroes soon discover that Ultron intends to wipe out mankind itself. Can the team save the world from the mess of their own creation?
AOU is no less than a spectacle and you get exactly what you pay for. The unparalleled action is of epic proportions and makes the mammoth destruction shown in The Man of Steel and the previous Avengers film pale in comparison.
However, unlike the previous film which was more massy, this densely plotted sequel may appeal to the geeks more. For those not acquainted with the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe), getting the threads together of this layered film could be a task. So, brush up on your Marvel jargon before watching this one.
