Our world is threatened once again and only earth’s mightiest heroes can save us from the robotic-apocalypse that is set to come in “Avengers: Age of Ultron.”
This time, the team faces the menace of a sentient-robotic being known as Ultron who seeks to purge the impurities of the world through human extinction.
Under the leadership of Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, The Hulk, Black Widow, and Hawkeye team up to face him.
Then they encounter twins Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver, who together not only match the heroes in power but also test their team’s foundation as protectors of earth.
“It left me speechless. There were times I was gripping the arms of my seat like did that just really happen and other times were WTF,” said student Kade Sweeny.
Director Joss Whedon returns to reassemble the talents of Robert Downey Jr, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, and the rest of the crew as he yet again leaves us jaw-opened by capturing the true grit of Marvel Comics .
Whedon faced a great challenge this time around.
How can he exceed what had accomplished in the first Avengers? How can his vision of “Age of Ultron” bring the fresh and uncanny expected in a sequel where audiences sense that with each new step will lead to something bigger?
Well, while the premise of such films must be retained, something transcending must always be elaborated and embedded in the end. Whedon delivers, especially in one of the most epic moments in all Marvel comics-Downey Jr.’s Iron Man-Hulkbuster armor battle against Ruffalo’s Incredible Hulk.
This intense sequence is proof of craftsmanship and visual skill, let alone of how well Whedon was capable of adding humor.
Speaking of humor, this film is surprisingly full of it. Ultron, played by James Spader, was the one who put the “ha-ha” in hilarious. Even when his role was voice-over, Spader portrayed the character, amusingly, sarcastic and snazzy compared to his comic book counterpart and added innovation.
“The film was dark, but it had a lot of humor, especially with Ultron. He ended up being my favorite character,” said student Cesar Perez
I am glad this time fans got to venture the far reaches of the world. Among them were England, South Korea, Italy, New York, and Bangladesh where they give life to the fictional country of Sokovia and Wakanda.
The computer generated images skills, camera shots, Iron Man’s new armors, the emotional tensions between Captain America and Iron Man that will lead them to conflict, is all included.
Comic book fanatic Cecilia Bacerra, though she prefers the first one, believes the film was decent and it serves as a good bridge for “Ant-Man” coming on July 17th.
Not only did Marvel Studios bring the bacon to their fans, but they managed to bring barrel wagons of cash home with a worldwide opening weekend of $627 million profit.
If you haven’t seen “Age of Ultron,” what the hell are you waiting for?
