Earth’s Mightiest heroes reunite once again to save the world from Ultron (voiced by James Spader), a self-conscious A.I. hell bent on eradicating humanity.

Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and Vision (Paul Bettany) have been added to the already existing superhero roster, adding some much needed firepower to take down Ultron.

The action sequences are quite spectacular, especially the one with an out of control Hulk and Iron Man (with his Hulkbuster suit), enough to leave the fan boys thrilled. The ending ofcourse is literally out of this world as the Avengers have to contend with a falling Sokovia plummeting Earth as well as Ultron and his countless robot minions.

Hawkeye gets some character development introducing the audience to his family living in a remote cabin in the woods (get it). Banner and Black widow have a few scenes opening up to each other filling, some emotional depth of the movie.

The movie however does have a few plot holes that were left unexplained. At the end of Iron Man 3 Tony Stark decides to quit being Iron Man, yet here he is in all his glory. A few jokes could have also been left out as it desensitized any tension or suspense.

Joss Whedon does an admirable job in making a consistent summer blockbuster. Cool CGI, fun one-liners, good performances and average plot is become somewhat of a template that most Hollywood movies seem to follow. I feel that Marvel should have tried to do something different as I was left wanting something a bit more. Age of Ultron is still an enjoyable film and will definitely entertain those who are just in for a good time.

Rating: 8/10
