Editorial Reviews

To save humanity, the Earth's mightiest heroes must reunite for a rematch of heroic proportions. Mysterious Wakanda. It lies in the darkest heart of Africa, unknown to most of the world. An isolated land hidden behind closed borders, fiercely protected by its young king - the BLACK PANTHER. A king who holds the fate of the entire earth in his hands. Because brutal alien invaders are coming, soon to fill every sky and control every land, seeking what is buried beneath ancient Wakanda. That leaves the Black Panther with a single option, one that goes against the sacred decrees of his people - to ask for help from outsiders. And so he turns to The Avengers - Captain America. Iron Man. Thor. Giant Man. Wasp. And the Incredible Hulk. These mightiest of heroes have battled the aliens before, and barely survived. They thought it was over. They were wrong.

This is the second "Ultimate Avengers" film, adapted from the comic of the same name. Unlike the "standard" Avengers comic, the Ultimates offers more realistic and gritty stories.

Sadly, alot of that hard-edged story telling is missing from the animated films (and where the heck is Hawkeye??! My personal pet peeve..), no wife-beating, no wife-beater beating, no blood, no sex - no Shield Heli-Carriers (why? I have no idea, they would look great in a movie). The movie does have some of the elements present in the comic and I liked the addition of the Vibranium/Wakanda plotline. I always thought that the Black Panther was pretty cool.

Who is the audience for this movie? Fans of the comic won't be too thrilled by the milquetoast adaptation of the comic, but this movie is too violent for kids.

Ultimate Avengers 2 is worth seeing, but I hope the next one is alot better and more faithful to the comic.

Lots of folks stated they hated the first film [mostly because they could not separate themselves from the comics] and those same people are back saying they hate this one. Well as I said before, give it a chance.

The story picks up where the other film lets off [so see Ultimate Avengers The Movie as well]. Although this is a stand alone film some elements require you do watch the first film to 'get' everything.

The alien attack plot thickens, we lose an Avenger and we get to know our heroes better.

Special features are worth a viewing as well with first looks at Iron Man and Dr. Strange as well as interviews and a 'blooper' reel. "Hulk no want ribs!" Keep it up Marvel we want more!

I agree with all the reviews here. This is a VERY good animated movie from MARVEL Studios distributed thru Lions Gate.

I recently rewatched the first one to refresh my memory on its story in preparation for this second one. I'm glad I did, because these two movies are indeed sequels. Well, the second is a sequel to the first...you know what I mean. Anyway...

First of all, I really did this kind of animation. A bit more realistic than Bruce Timm's Justice League style, but also more comic booky-looking. By that I mean the animation looks like something you'd see in a average comic book THESE days. You could freeze-frame any scene in these Ultimate flms and it'd look like a comic book frame. Which is good.

Secondly, I love the Ultimates take on the characters. As I'm not a comic book reader, I could care less about continuity at this point, so for this series to "throw out" any established continuity is a good thing for new viewers. My favorite character by far is Iron Man. Love his voice and his animation. The aid of CG is a good thing for his character. Especially when he dawns the War Machine suit, after Iron Man v6.2 is destroyed.

Thirdly, I love the level of violence. This is a very mature animated film. There's blood and people die. The battle scenes in this movie are quite good. Very dramatic and breath taking, if you will. And as you might have gathered from other reviews, this series takes a page from Tom Cruise's "War of the Worlds", and the 3-part pilot of Justice League, "Secret Origins".

Also, as you may have guessed, there's a hilarious gag reel included with this disc which basically features clips from the original movie, but with different voice overs (with newly animated mouth movements).

For the past few years, DC's animated division has had it all over Marvel, their Justice League, JLU, Batman, and Superman animated series dominated much weaker Marvel efforts.

Ultimate Avengers and its sequel change that. The first movie was a good take on these character, but the second movie improves upon that, introducing the Black Panther.

The animation, while weak at some points, gets the job done and the voice acting ranges from below average to excellent. The voice actor for Tony Stark (Iron Man) does a great job portraying him as the cool playboy, and the actor for Giant Man does a pretty good as portraying the arrogant and cocky Hank Pym.

For parents out there, Ultimate Avengers is actually a pastiche of the comic book characters "The Ultimates" and "The Avengers". The characters are much like the Ultimates, but the storylines are much more like those found in the Avengers.

I would not recommend parents allowing their children to read "The Ultimates" thinking it is like the animation, because quite frankly, if they translated the comic directly, it would have been rated R. Giant Man is an abusive husband, Thor is a delusional drunk, Iron Man is an alcoholic...you get the picture.

As an animation, this does a favorable job of portraying these comic book heroes and does it in an old school way, its a simple good guys vs. bad guys story that isn't patronizing in a "superfriends" sort of way.

I definately recommend this for comic book and superhero fans alike, and its good to see Marvel putting together some respectable animation efforts.

If you loved, still love, Marvel comics, this is for you. The excellent animation brings the still images of the page to life. Although I don't think that it was quite as good as the first, Ultimate Avengers, it is still well worth purchasing.
