Avengers: Age Of Ultron – Review (Midnight Movie Madness)

Avengers: Age Of Ultron Review

Shortly following The Age Of Adaline comes The Age Of Ultron, the second team-up for Earth’s Mightiest Heroes and Hawkeye. This time they’re facing off against sarcastic cgi and a Russian Usain Bolt. Will they survive, or will Captain America: Civil War have to be cancelled?

So continues my Midnight Movie Madness video series here on Movie-Moron:

    Definitely enjoyed it and it’s well made. My main complaint, besides from Ultron’s cliched plan and rhetoric on humans, is: Hawkeye’s still utterly unnecessary and the extra screen time they gave him only proved it further, his unneeded pep talks and chats with the fam were out of place. Is his backstory really that dull and by the numbers?

    I thought “Avengers Age of Ultron” was great.
    I also think this was a decent review.

    I think the movie deserves a higher rating than that. I don’t think it was as good as the first either, but this is still better than a B movie.


    James Spader was perfect for Ultron. I get the mad man wants to destroy the world cliche, but at least he had a different plan. I can’t recollect another movie where they literally built an asteroid to plummet down and destroy Earth.

    This was a personal issue, but I was always irritated by Captain America’s Shield. Every time he flung it, I just couldn’t get over the fact that he had to throw it exactly right for it to bounce back directly at him. It was immensely distracting for me. Seeimg them FINALLY put a retractor on his arm was a relief. Not mention it was nice to see him finally hold his own against a main enemy.

    That said, the Hulk-Widow romance pissed me off. Unnecessary in every way. I thought the Hulk already had a love-interest?

    There’s too much monologue in the third act. Every scene had two characters talking and talking and talking to point where it feels redundant. “Like the old man said, together”. The first movie had a perfect pace between the action and dialogue.

    The whole team turning against each other thing felt slightly forced. I never at any point felt like it was a big deal. It felt like a waste of time.

    Pietro’s death would have been more effective if done earlier, like agent Phil’s death in the first movie.

      Agent Phil’s death? He got injured through the chest and fell asleep.

        And SHIELD has a great benefits package. He got to recover in Tahiti. It’s a magical place.
