(Whedon is) less a thinker than a teaser, throwing out an inexhaustible amount of ticklish ideas and tasty images that thrill from moment to moment then disappear from memory.

There so many plots in this movie and so many scene that are JUST there to set up future movies...It moves too fast.

...it works on its own terms, proving Whedon's skill at managing an epic story full of different heroes and villains. [Full review in Spanish]

Hawkeye makes a self-aware remark that none of this makes any sense, and you know what, he's right. There's also nothing to be ashamed of; at the end of the day it's grand fun

Entertaining, funny and full of action. Another cinematic team-up hit. [Full review in Spanish]

Hardcore fans will find enough to enjoy here, but I found the pace at times slow, the visual effects somewhat disappointing (particularly compared to The Winter Soldier) and the story less than engrossing.

The chemistry between the Avengers grounds it. At heart, it's a story about friends and friendship. A completely bananas story about friends and friendship, featuring a murderous robot.
September 20, 2017
Age Of Ultron will make fans jump for joy, especially when it comes to tying up the loose ends of Thanos and the Infinity Gauntlet that the earlier Marvel movies had teased about.

With delectable James Spader voicing Ultron, a robotic artificial intelligence programme, and an opening sequence with The Avengers battling a terrorist group in a frozen wood, Whedon has more than delivered on his promise.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

At 141 minutes, the sequel is almost even in length with the original, so why does it feel so much longer?

This blockbuster sequel has a plot more convoluted than the Biblical begats. Knowing that the New Yorker critic Anthony Lane was stumped as well makes me feel slightly better. But it didn't make the movie-going experience any more enjoyable.

That Joss Whedon is able to address the changing beliefs and needs of each of the characters in Age of Ultron is impressive to say the least. That he does so in a way that feels believable is, well, pretty marvelous.

Whedon affectionately says goodbye while cementing the future of a franchise that, though it seems impossible, will represent future far-reaching narrative complexities. [Full review in Spanish]

There is little in this film that is new, but that doesn't matter. The characters are still entertaining, the action scenes thrilling and near orgasmic, and the human relationships touching.
February 28, 2017
It really, really feels like the 11th exhausting film in the unstoppable ring cycle of movies based on the Avengers comic-book heroes -- a vast and increasingly dull series of blockbusters planned out, terrifyingly, as far ahead as 2019.
February 24, 2017
Convoluted, messy, and over-stuffed, The Avengers: Age of Ultron also somehow manages to be an incredibly enjoyable ride. Each of the actors bring their A-game, and each of their characters has their own moment to shine.
October 24, 2016
While we do get plenty of funny or touching interactions between the main characters, the film feels poorly structured and overly reliant on gigantic action sequences.
July 14, 2016
It's too bad Avengers: Age of Ultron lacks dramatic tension and has a more or less nonsensical plotline, because its component parts are frequently entertaining.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
July 11, 2016
It's as entertaining as holiday fireworks: initially exciting, which fades; then just loud, and finally the sense of time wasted because everything you just watched was pretty, but utterly meaningless.
June 15, 2016
Whedon has already announced that he won't be on board for the next installment, and you can hardly blame him. These films don't require a director. All they need are bean counters.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
