Fifth about The Seventh

Avengers: Age of Ultron

Avengers Age of UltronAvengers: Age of Ultron: Joss Whedon delivers a somewhat peculiar beast: it is entertaining enough, and as a sequel, it dutifully checks all the expected boxes. The action scenes (and there are a few of them) are thrilling and properly overblown (this is, after all, the pinnacle of the genre – for now); the banter during the quiet (and not so quiet) moments is light and funny. The veteran cast already knows how to play these characters and read this sort of dialogue, so it’s done well (for what it’s supposed to be). Nevertheless, there is an unshakeable taste of “please give more”; the plot feels as a bridge rather than a destination. Taken as a series (or as a group of series), there is an ever-growing sense of excessive build-ups and scarce payoffs. If not this, what and when? Nevertheless, the villain is an inspired choice and magnificently voiced by James Spader. Visual effects are top-notch, with the exception made for the first shot (bad execution of a good idea).
