3/5 74% Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) "Whedon wastes no time teaming them up for a blistering opening sequence that is thrilling. Unfortunately that segment is a high point in a film that swiftly becomes an exercise in ever-diminishing returns bar a few moments. " ‐ Daily Record [UK]

Posted Aug 28, 2014
