Avengers: Age of Ultron review

Thanks to Tammy in collaboration with GSC Cinemas, I received a pair of tickets to watch the latest Avengers sequel! Wee~ I was so excited because I absolutely love all the superheroes in Avengers and I really liked the first Avengers movie. So of course, there's not a doubt that I'll definitely be catching the sequel.

Your favourite superheroes are back!

You may think, with all the superheroes under one roof, who can possibly defeat them? After all, they already have the biggest one among them; The green Hulk and with Iron Man's super technology, what can possibly intrude the Avengers and take them down?

The only answer is that it must come from something within. I thought that introducing this villain in the movie was very clever. It's logical that the only way to get past the circle of superheroes is to create a disunity among them and something that comes from inside of them.

So, this time around the Avengers encounter two experimental twins Pietro, who has superhuman speed, and Wanda Maximoff, who can manipulate minds and throw energy blasts AND of course as the title suggests - Ultron, the Artifical Intelligence that went wrong. 

In this movie, we get to see each of the Avengers' past and how disunity amongst them almost cause the world's destruction. There were some romance between the Avengers as well but I will not reveal who ^_*

The only bad thing I could say was, the storyline was complicated with a bit too much of science information so much so it became quite ridiculous at some point. And sometimes, there's just too much of robot killing LOL

It lacked humour as well and the movie was a wee bit serious than expected. Tony Stark used to be full of wit and humour but somehow during the climax of the movie everyone became so serious. The Avengers' chemistry is best seen when they are kicking back making jokes.

Overall, it was a good movie. It could have been shorter in my opinion (it was a 2 and half hours movie) without so much of robot killing and less fictional ridiculousness (although I know it's supposed to be fiction haha). However, it did deliver albeit a darker sequel with the superheroes fighting a more challenging and menacing enemy and progresses the development of each characters.

Do stay after the credits ^_*

My rating: 3 and a half stars
