It’s today! Marvels’s AVENGERS: Age of Ultron is finally out in theaters! That also means I finally have the green light to tell you a little bit about the movie and to share my Age of Ultron movie review. Is it a worthy sequel? Can kids watch it? Should you stay all the way until the end of the credits for extra footage? Find out below!
Marvel’s AVENGERS Age of Ultron Movie Review
You’ll notice that the title of this post says “no spoilers.” There are a few unexpected plot twists in the film and if you know about them early it kind of ruins the fun. So, I won’t tell you about how hilarious it was when __________ got the __________ from __________, or when __________ suddenly reveals the __________ no one knew about, or how heartbreaking it was to see __________ and __________ talk about __________. 😛 You’ll just have to see the movie to fill in the blanks.
I can tell you that this is one action-packed and story heavy movie. Something is constantly happening, whether it’s an intense battle scene or some connecting bit of information that will play out later in subsequent releases in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This time we get a bit more backstory of each Avenger, finding out about events that shaped them and perhaps even continue to haunt and cripple them. However, subtle bits of humor balance the tension with perfectly-timed one liners throughout.
There is a mid-credits scene but that’s it. If you want to stay to see who all worked on the film please do. But you won’t get any more teasers if you stay until the lights go on again. I just don’t want you to get disappointed.
Marvel’s AVENGERS Age of Ultron – The Story
As the team goes in to finish off an enemy they’ve been chasing, a new threat appears and its origin is from within. To achieve peace, Tony Stark tinkers with alien technology and artificial intelligence. After many failures, one test randomly works and Ultron is born.
As Ultron grows in consciousness, his ideals and goals morph into something that will result in destruction. The twins who got a cameo appearance at the end of Captain America: The Winter Soldier come from and center as they find join forces with Ultron. We find out who they are, why they can do what they do, and what causes them to fight.
Marvel’s AVENGERS Age of Ultron – Viewing Audience
You can watch Avengers Age of Ultron without seeing any of the other ten Marvel movies. The story is enriched, though, when you do since #itsallconnected, as demonstrated by this past Tuesday’s episode for Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Kids ages 6 and up will gobble this movie up. The scale of fighting, dark moments, etc. is pretty much on par with the other Avengers-related movies so if they were fine with those, this one will be just fine for them. There are a few scenes that could cause some squirming so, if in doubt, just bring them when you go back to watch it for the second, third, or fourth time 🙂
I will warn you that, as an adult, I don’t think it’s possible to see this movie only once. So much is happening at any given moment that you’re bound to miss some things. I can’t wait to see it again. In fact, while you’re reading this, I’m probably at the theater with my family right now watching Age of Ultron. We pre-ordered tickets to a IMAX 3D showing earlier this week before they could sell out. Frans and Munchkin haven’t seen it yet so it’s going to be interesting to see what their reactions to the movie will be.
