The Characters of Avengers: Age of Ultron
Wounded, captured and forced to build a weapon by his enemies, billionaire industrialist Tony Stark instead created an advanced suit of armor to save his life and escape captivity. Now with a new outlook on life, Tony uses his money and intelligence to make the world a safer, better place as Iron Man.
Vowing to serve his country any way he could, young Steve Rogers took the super soldier serum to become America's one-man army. Fighting for the red, white and blue for over 60 years, Captain America is the living, breathing symbol of freedom and liberty.
Caught in a gamma bomb explosion while trying to save the life of a teenager, Dr. Bruce Banner was transformed into the incredibly powerful creature called the Hulk. An all too often misunderstood hero, the angrier the Hulk gets, the stronger the Hulk gets.
As the Norse God of thunder and lightning, Thor wields one of the greatest weapons ever made, the enchanted hammer Mjolnir. While others have described Thor as an over-muscled, oafish imbecile, he's quite smart and compassionate. He's self-assured, and he would never, ever stop fighting for a worthwhile cause.
Natasha Romanova, known by many aliases, is an expert spy, athlete, and assassin. Trained at a young age by the KGB's infamous Red Room Academy, the Black Widow was formerly an enemy to the Avengers. She later became their ally after breaking out of the U.S.S.R.'s grasp, and also serves as a top S.H.I.E.L.D. agent.
Created by Tony Stark, Ultron is a criminally insane rogue sentient robot dedicated to conquest and the extermination of humanity.
Marvel Studios unleashes the next global phenomenon in the Marvel Cinematic Universe -- MARVEL'S AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON. Good intentions wreak havoc when Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) unwittingly creates Ultron (James Spader), a terrifying A.I. monster who vows to achieve "world peace" via mass extinction. Now Iron Man, Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and The Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) -- alongside Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) and Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) -- must reassemble to defeat Ultron and save mankind...if they can! This action-packed adventure is a mind-blowing blast!

This movie is continuing the story lines that played out in the first Avengers Movie and Captain America Winter Soldier. It starts out with them mopping up the Hydra forces and trying to find Loki's scepter. In the process Tony Stark and Bruce Banner start messing around with Artificial Intelligence, in the hope of creating a force that can replace the team of Avengers, and end up creating Ultron who is played brilliantly by James Spader.
The other main additions to the cast are Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch played by Aaron Taylor Johnson and Elizabeth Olson. They of course were in the teaser scene at the end of Winter Soldier's credits and while most probably already know the role they play in the movie, I will not spoil it for those who have not yet seen the film. But they both do a very good job playing what are ultimately conflicted characters.
One thing I really liked about this movie is it gave Jeremy Renner's Hawkeye a story line and more to do. Instead of being the "other one" like he was for much of the first movie, he plays a large part in this one, and has some great sarcastic one liners. It also sets up a transition in the Avengers line up with some characters taking a back seat by the end of the movie (seemingly anyway) and is definitely setting up the movies that are yet to come.
For those who get the blu ray, the movie looks and sounds great as expected. For bonus material there are deleted scenes, a few behind the scenes features, a blooper reel and commentary on the movie by director Joss Whedon. There is also a code included for more web based extras should you want to look at those. Not a ton, but good for what is there for those who like to go through the bonus material.
All in all you pretty much know what you are getting with these movies. If you are into the story and do not have superhero fatigue, then you will likely enjoy this. If you are not all that into action/superhero movies then this one is not really going to do anything to change your mind.
After the Captain America 2 Winter Soldier and Agents of SHIELD Season 1 in which the offshoot Nazi Terrorist group HYDRA is still in existence, promoting terrorism into the 21st century and using SHIELD and the governments of the world to in order to rule the world. Avengers 2 Age of Ultron brings the Avengers to destroy HYDRA, but they are manipulated into creating a peace keeping initiative that blows up in their faces. Ultron, the artificial intelligence created by Tony Stark to prevent alien threats like Avengers or world threats like Captain America 2 turns on them and intends to destroy. This is more than just an action movie for the sake of action, but brings to mind the importance of fighting the good fight and the limits of power. Its nice to know more things about the Avengers as they develop in the face of their new enemies and their own demons. Its nice to know that a few years living in the 21st century that Steve Rogers still misses his dreams of a normal life, or how Natasha Romanov was trained as an assassin and robbed of a life she still wants, don't get me started on Clint Barton and of course Tony Stark's ambitions. They are friends but they have a chance to be a family and more as they fight to save the world.
All this and more is just amazing. Nice to welcome back the old but also some new faces. As well as see plenty of great action. Some people complain about some stuff. The movie isn't as fresh as there is a feeling of 'sequelitis' as there is feeling to make the movie relevant. I won't go into specifics but I do believe its a little exaggerated. Joss Whedon also has said that he wanted to do more, bring more heroes and continue to develop things well into the next couple of films. Both of course didn't happen.
Still this movie is really good and well worthy of a Blu-ray and Digital Copy.
The first Avengers film set the bar a little too high for the sequel to meet, let alone surpass.
(Some of) the good stuff:
The dialogue was on point.
It's still the best thing about these movies.
Also, a few of the characters, especially Hawkeye,
get a chance to shine a little bit more in this entry
(not that anyone really cares all that much about Hawkeye.)
And the tension between Cap and Tony really begins to become evident
(setting us up for a Civil War.)
And Ultron - he was a welcome addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
He was a lot of fun to watch, and James Spader was perfect for the role.
(Some of) the bad:
Ultron's plan to destroy the planet and all of mankind was, well, a bit lame.
With the power he amassed through the movie,
Ultron could've laid waste to the world with the snap of his fingers.
Hell, he could've simply fried all electronics globally (like a massive EMP),
which would have resulted in mass confusion and chaos.
Everyone on Earth would've had a $0 balance in their bank account,
with no television or internet to help them understand what had happened,
which would have made them confused, helpless, and - most importantly - angry.
Humankind would've torn itself apart from the inside.
I feel like Ultron would've enjoyed sitting back and watching the madness of man consume and destroy the world around him.
But instead... he just tried to drop a big rock on everyone.
Geez. Okay. Have fun.
What a dumb plan.
Still had a fun time with the film.
Just not as much fun as I had with the first one.
