Avengers: Age of Ultron Reviews

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.

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

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.

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.

Avengers: Age of Ultron is the sequel of a profitable Marvel franchise, but it's far less interesting and powerful than the first instalment.
April 30, 2015
The plot is simple and the movie doesn't live up to expectations. [full review in Spanish]

It's not just bad, it's disappointing. [Full review in Spanish]

Joss Whedon sets up the future of the Avengers for the Russo Brothers, but this is no longer exciting. It's exhausting.

Ultron maintains Marvel's record for solid, entertaining blockbusters but falls down a bit in the "making sense" department.
April 23, 2015
Any true drama is entirely missing. There is no tension. Everything has to stop for the next battle. It is tediously repetitive. And the characters are all one defining trait.
April 30, 2015
...the film starts out attempting to question the Avengers' place in the world and whether they really make a difference, only to forget to probe for an answer not long after the asking.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
April 22, 2015
In many ways, Marvel has grown up and passed Whedon by - and his jocular take on the material doesn't just feel stale, it feels like a step back.
April 28, 2015
Age of Ultron is a Western about military service: it's a call to arms to protect American values like the family and the home from East European types and electronic threats to security systems.

Whedon is pretty much locked into an overarching storyline and a bland house style here, so instead of bucking the system, he dutifully serves up more of the same bubble-brained gibberish and wanton destruction.

December 31, 2015
Loud, fluffy, and rather unsatisfying.
April 23, 2015
The film-makers' understandable inability to take their own material seriously has now pushed the project beyond gentle parody and into broad pastiche.

It is, in short, more disposable than the mere mortal blockbusters it was designed to outpace. This should defy Marvel Studios mathematics. How can a movie with more stuff than its predecessors be less fun?
April 25, 2015
141 minutes of noise and incident.
April 29, 2015
Darker than its predecessor [and] far less witty ... Whereas Stark seemed to dominate the first film, here the emphasis is ... Hawkeye and Black Widow ... a negative in the case of Hawkeye and a huge positive in the case of Black Widow.

Age of Ultron disappoints not because it's irredeemably bad but because it fails to achieve the level of its predecessor in nearly every facet.
