With the temperatures hovering near 100 recently we decided it was time for an indoor activity so we went and saw "Avengers: Age of Ultron".
As we have mentioned before we are big fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Funny thing is that when Bob was growing up he preferred and read more DC than Marvel Comics. But we feel that the Marvel movies are much better than the DC movies.
"Time to call in the Avengers" spoken by Coulson in the television series "Marvel's Agents of Shield" really kick-started our enthusiasm for this movie. We really like the tie in to the TV series to the movie. Ultron is a artificial intelligence robot created by Tony Stark to act as a peacekeeping force. As Ultron matures, voiced by the terrific James Spader, he feels that if mankind were eliminated entirely and there was only Ultron there would be peace. So as Coulson says time to call in the Avengers.
Stark's Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Director Fury, Hawkeye and Black Widow are back joined by some newcomers to the Avengers. An action packed couple of hours that was good fun. We especially liked the Hulkbuster Armour versus the Hulk scene, among many others. A great addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe but in our opinion not as good as our two favorites, Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy.
There is a short 'bonus' feature about 2 minutes into the credits but nothing at the end of the credits as is usual for Marvel Movies. There is a Stan Lee cameo which was funny.
Till next time,
Bob and Jo
