Avengers - Age of Ultron. As they say, go big or go home and they certainly went for the latter. From beginning to end, this was all out action,
stunts, CGI mayhem. Was a bit concerned at the start due to the shaky camera work (similar to the Hunger Games), but in the capable hands of Joss
Whedon, this was quickly sorted out.
Slightly less humour than the first Avengers outing (although there are some amusing moments) and plenty of Thor action meant I left the cinema happy - the £6 price tag helped too. All in all, if you like the MCU movies then this is a safe bet. For me 8/10.
I will be taking Ruby to see it after it opens May 1 (I avoid the opening crush of people if I can).
I did not know the UK got it in advance of us.
I am a longtime Joss Whedon fan. His TV series version of Buffy the Vampire Slayer was much better than the movie, and I greatly enjoyed the Angel series which spun off of it. The credits say he not only directed the Avengers movie, but also wrote it.
I noticed Quicksilver in one of the advance adverts--he was an Avenger in the Avengers comics for a period of time. I'll be interested in seeing how he fits in, in the movie version.
I used to follow them all in the comics as a kid. I would have thought I'd died and gone to heaven if these films had been made back then.
I hope Joss can convince someone to bring back Firefly.
Huge fan of Whedon. Buffy remains one of my favourtie shows for many many reasons.
(One of which, the seamless handling of Willow and Tara)
Not a fan of the Avengers. I DO like Iron Man.
I prefer "Guardians of the Galaxy", which hits all the right buttons for me.
I loved the first Avengers movie.
I thought the new one was TEN TIMES BETTER!
Have this on dvd need to find time to watch it
Back to the Avengers--
now that I have seen it--
without giving any spoilers, I will say I was surprised and impressed with the movie version of some of the developments in the comic book series.
It must be very challenging for the writers to keep the continuity going throughout The Avengers movies and the solo adventures of Thor, Captain
America and Iron Man, not to mention TV's Agents of Shield. That is most impressive.
On a web page deals with such things, I recall an article to the effect that the second of the recent Captain America movies (the Winter Soldier) was
"ruined" by changes made for the sake of the Agents of Shield television series. The author thought the first version of the movie script was
superior, but it wold have reduced what could be done in the television series--and, the movie gave way.
Of course, Josh Wedon was behind the television series, AND was going to write and direct the 2nd Avengers movies. Marvel wanted to keep him happy.
What I find interesting about Whedon is the family he comes from. It's an interesting nature or nurture question about how some people rise to the top of their game - was it in his genes or his upbringing or his access to opportunity?
