The movie is stiff and enervated. It's all punch-punch, banter-banter, like a sitcom in which cities get leveled.

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.

The latest "Avengers" movie plays its music loud from start to finish. Mindless action rules, punctuated only by super hero/villain quips.

That sound you hear is the bubble getting near to bursting.

Feels like a bunch of those scenes Marvel usually reserves for the credits. It's more concerned about future films than the one it is actually in.
May 5, 2015
Avengers: Age of Ultron is the sequel of a profitable Marvel franchise, but it's far less interesting and powerful than the first instalment.

It's too big. It's too frenzied. It's too full of characters it can't contain. Mostly, it's just too much everything.
May 5, 2015
A thoroughly competent movie, sure; but its competence is so routine and mechanical as to leave the thing overwhelmingly dull.

More does not necessarily equal better; here, more is just ... meh.
May 2, 2015
...mostly registers as yet another Marvel punchplosion.

We have seen the future of the CG-saturated action epic and ‒ upon emerging bruised and battered from the local megaplex ‒ can say with certitude that it isn't pretty.

Mr. Whedon seems to rely heavily on forced jocularity in lieu of substantial character development.

Like peering into the Dead Marshes for 142 minutes in IMAX 3D. All PG-13 robot carnage and no heart.
May 1, 2015
At 141 minutes, it's a miracle the movie is never merely mechanical, but like JARVIS or Ultron, it's not fully human, either.
May 1, 2015
Formula flick. Period. High tech, high voltage action followed by long stretches of boring dialogue before more high tech, high voltage action. It's too long by 20-minutes.
May 1, 2015
World-saving is no longer a surprise to these characters. It's work. Grunt work. For them. For us.
May 1, 2015
Overall, though, for all of its cheesy fun mixed with doom-and-gloom observations on the plight of humanity, this Avengers leaves us with the nagging feeling that we've been here too many times before.

Avengers strike again -- but not as deftly
May 1, 2015
The law of diminishing returns strikes big-time in Avengers: Age of Ultron, an overstuffed mess of one-note characters, gaudy CGI, and bad one-liners.

The plot is simple and the movie doesn't live up to expectations. [full review in Spanish]
