Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015)

TOMATOMETER

AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: Exuberant and eye-popping, Avengers: Age of Ultron serves as an overstuffed but mostly satisfying sequel, reuniting its predecessor's unwieldy cast with a few new additions and a worthy foe.

Critic Reviews for Avengers: Age of Ultron

All Critics (277) | Top Critics (47)

This is a film that unfolds with every re-watch and reveals more subtle little grace notes.

GQ Magazine [UK]

This sequel also represents Whedon's last go-around with the Marvel heroes, and while it succeeds in many ways, it's enough of a comedown to suggest that he's getting off the carousel at the right time.

Fort Worth Weekly

Like the first film, what makes the sequel work is how director Joss Whedon builds the action on this character foundation and injects it with just enough humor to make its personality radiate.

Deseret News, Salt Lake City

It's possible to approve of how such a billion-dollar apparatus can be this fast and breezy.

HeraldNet (Everett, WA)

That isn't to say I didn't enjoy myself. I just didn't feel Marvel trying to do anything different this time around.

NOW Toronto

There's something to be had here, with such fine actors and seamless interlacing into a mega fantasy world, but overall the embarrassment of riches doesn't quite pay dividends.

Audience Reviews for Avengers: Age of Ultron

'Age of Ultron' is a fun and worthy sequel, but you can feel the over-abundance of CGI mayhem starting to wear thin in these character-stuffed superhero flicks. Even so, its a fun time at the movies.

Like a true Avenger, this movie's greatest strength is also its weakness: its light-hearted and playful tone makes for some fun moments, but they also rob this film of any real depth, emotion or suspense. While Marvel movies are good at being fun to watch with their bright action sequences and lively banter between characters (even during what is supposed to be heated battle), at a certain point it gets old. Throughout the film there is no doubt the Avengers will defeat Ultron, so the interest then lies in how they will defeat him, and the answer is a disappointing "they simply over power him." If you enjoy this Marvel series where the villains emerge with no real interesting motive and are beaten at the drop of a hat, then of course this movie is a must see. I'm just holding out hope that Marvel takes more risks in their future films.

The Avengers battle an artificial intelligence war machine.
Basically inoffensive, the latest installment of the summer superhero blockbusters doesn't fall into the ruts that many of its predecessors remain. For example, Captain America 2 attempted to deal with the ethical problems of government surveillance, a subject that it simply wasn't smart enough to tackle with the complexity necessary. Here, we see the bad guy is evil in the second act, and that evil is fairly basic.
At a certain point the film became a who's who of stars who appeared in other Marvel films: "You get a cameo, you get a cameo, everyone gets a cameo ... except Natalie Portman and Gwyneth Paltrow because they're expensive and we might be sexist."
Many of these summer action films bore me because I know exactly how most of the fights are going to end, and like a comedy that isn't funny, an action film that bores is a bad action film.. This film was no exception, but there was enough interesting choreography to keep me from checking my phone to see when the next showing of Ex Machina was.
Overall, it was an unremarkable entry into the summer event film canon.
