Movie Love: Avengers: Age of Ultron and Celebrating Movies
Sunday May 10, 2015 I went to see Avengers: Age of Ultron. the much awaited sequel for the first Avengers movie. I will say this, I had a really good time watching this movie. While in some ways it's not better than the first in others it is even better. The lesser is simple things like the feel not being as coherent and put together as the first so pretty much technical mumbo critic jumbo. So moving unto why this movie is still awesome.
1. Way more risks were taken in this one. You will actually wonder who is going to survive at the end of all this insanity and while the first movie had it's moments...come on. We knew who was returning for the most part. This sequel has crazy and dangerous turns.
2. Ultron. Oh my God this villain knows how to pull the heart and disgust strings at the same time. James Spader definitely took some tips from his character Red from The Blacklist. Will not spoil it for you but damn...a really good villain. No Loki but...there is no other like Loki.
3. A romance arc that I wasn't expecting but some of you people might have. Watch the sparks fly for yourself. Oh and Hawkeye has his own surprise and no it's not more singing.
4. The way this movie stands out from the pack. Yes it is a sequel but I will tell you this. It could be made into one movie and still work. Not many of the Marvel movie series pull this off as well as Avengers 2 did.
5. The twins, these two power houses have their own storyline and trust me. You want to know.
6. This guy.
Rating: 4.5 Stars
GO SEE THIS MOVIE!
