avengersReviews for this film from our members:

  • Rick Aragon @ Rick’s Cafe Texan
    • Excerpt: For me, Age of Ultron felt cold and calculated, an exercise in marketing action figures and pretty much nothing more. Again, I didn’t hate it, but I remember nothing in regards to Age of Ultron. Worse, I don’t care to remember.
  • José Arce @ LaButaca.net [Spanish]
    • Excerpt: Obviando la inevitable falta de sorpresa mainstream, la secuela del exitazo de 2012 ofrece lo que se le presupone: diversión a toneladas con una mega propuesta palomitera deliciosamente fácil de digerir y estupendamente disfrutable. Espectadores, reuníos de nuevo.
  • Jason Bailey @ Flavorwire
    • Excerpt: The thrill of fusing the Whedon wit with blockbuster filmmaking is gone; it’s now part of the machine, the way they do business in the MCU. It’s another superhero movie — a good one, above average even, but nothing special.
  • David Bax @ Battleship Pretension
    • Excerpt: The Avengers may mostly like each other now but they will have to face their demons – both internal and external – sooner or later and they’ll have to do it together. Like the movie itself, they may not be perfect but their disharmony is what makes them strong.
  • Tim Brayton @ Antagony & Ecstasy
  • Matt Brown @ TwitchFilm
  • Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat @ Spirituality & Practice
    • Excerpt: A Marvel blockbuster with more human touches than usual for this kind of fare.
  • Kevin Carr @ 7M Pictures
    • Excerpt: I can’t say that I didn’t like “Avengers: Age of Ultron.” I’m just a bit disappointed in what I got from it, similar how “Godzilla” was a come-down from “Pacific Rim” or “Star Trek Into Darkness” didn’t quite have the punch that “Star Trek” did.
  • Robert Cashill @ Popdose
    • Excerpt: Blu-ray review
  • Samuel Castro @ Ochoymedio.info [Spanish]
    • Excerpt: Conocidos posteriormente los problemas de Joss Whedon con los productores, se entiende todavía más por qué la película se siente como un capítulo (y no uno de los buenos) de una serie, más que como una película.
  • Bill Clark @ From The Balcony
    • Excerpt: The law of diminishing returns strikes big-time in Avengers: Age of Ultron, an overstuffed mess of one-note characters, gaudy CGI, and bad one-liners.
  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: A whole bunch of blather leads up to the same old climax with imperiled innocents and massive destruction.
  • Tony Dayoub @ Cinema Viewfinder
    • Excerpt: At two-and-a-half hours, AGE OF ULTRON still feels like an overstuffed way station in the Marvel series, a pause that resets the board, phasing out characters played by actors whose contracts are due to expire in favor of new superheroes soon to be introduced.
  • Jim Dixon @ Examiner.com
  • Mark Dujsik @ Mark Reviews Movies
    • Excerpt: [The sequel] has drained most of the joy, fun, and life out of these characters.
  • Hugo Gomes @ http://cinematograficamentefalando.blogs.sapo.pt [Portuguese]
  • Susan Granger @ www.susangranger.com
    • Excerpt: Spectacularly overstuffed – with more spectacle than substance…
  • Vadym Grygoriev @ kinoblog.com [Ukrainian]
  • John Hanlon @ JohnHanlonReviews.com
    • Excerpt: For all its faults (and yes, there are plenty of them), this Avengers sequel is still a lot of fun.
  • Roderick Heath @ Ferdy on Films
    • Excerpt: Avengers: Age of Ultron is as determined to entertain to the limit as an old vaudeville act. For the sake of the show it tap-dances whilst juggling, singing, and balancing a chair on its nose. I would have settled for just the tap-dance done well.
  • Mark Hobin @ Fast Film Reviews
    • Excerpt: I only wish Age of Ultron were more focused on giving the audience a lucid plot instead of being a character springboard for future films.
  • MaryAnn Johanson @ FlickFilosopher.com
    • Excerpt: Not without problems, but continues the Avengers tradition of big, bold blockbusters that don’t need to toss away thoughtfulness to remain pure popcorn fun.
  • Charlie Juhl @ Citizen Charlie
    • Excerpt: It’s not necessarily formulaic, but accidentally creating your enemy comes off as borderline goofy
  • Ben Kendrick @ Screen Rant
    • Excerpt: It misses the bar of classic movie greatness but Avengers: Age of Ultron is one of the most exciting and entertaining Marvel entries.
  • Jeremy Kibler @ The Artful Critic
    • Excerpt: It’s a lot of movie, and while it decidedly feels less special and more overstuffed and unwieldy in its storytelling than the first time we saw all of these characters share the screen together, there is still plenty that Whedon does right to deliver what fans want to see in an “Avengers” movie.
  • Oktay Kozak @ Oregon Herald
  • Kristin Dreyer Kramer @ NightsAndWeekends.com
  • Matt Looker @ TheShiznit.co.uk
    • Excerpt: It is likely that this is the best Avengers movie that we’ll ever see.
  • Kristen Lopez @ Awards Circuit
  • Glenn Lovell @ CinemaDope.com
    • Excerpt: We have seen the future of the CG-saturated action epic and ? upon emerging bruised and battered from the local megaplex ? can say with certitude that it isn’t pretty.
  • Wesley Lovell @ Cinema Sight
    • Excerpt: The Avengers: Age of Ultron marks the second merger of the Disney Marvel Cinematic Universe and the Whedonverse, two not always diametrically opposed galaxies, but ones that have never been more at conflict than in this latest outing.
  • Joe Lozito @ Big Picture Big Sound
    • Excerpt: With Marvel’s universe expanding and intertwining at an ever increasing rate, “Age of Ultron” feels less like a sequel than a cosmic event.
  • Dan Lybarger @ KCActive.com
    • Excerpt: In the current chapter, Whedon seems unduly obligated to introduce characters or realms that will be important in future Marvel movies. As a result, there’s a sense that “I’ve sat through all this and have to wait for another film?”
  • James Marsh @ The Society For Film
    • Excerpt: Rather than a jaw-dropping spectacle or breathless rollercoaster ride, this plays as a spirited, high-energy reunion, where not enough time has passed for old wounds to heal, and every attempt to kick back and enjoy themselves is interupted by having to go save the world again. What the future holds, both for the characters and the MCU itself, is left tantalisingly unclear at the end of the film, and there’s every possibility this is the last time we will see all these characters on screen together, so, yeah, it’s time for revels.
  • Brent McKnight @ The Last Thing I See
  • Ross Miller @ Thoughts On Film
    • Excerpt: It’s not quite as streamlined as the last one or many of the individual movies, taking a more scattershot approach, but nonetheless this darker, more menacing and visually spectacular sequel delivers the goods when it comes to the all-important action sequences.
  • Simon Miraudo @ Student Edge
  • Jared Mobarak @ BuffaloVibe
  • João Pinto @ Portal Cinema [Portuguese]
    • Excerpt: Fiel ao espetáculo visual do seu antecessor, “Avengers: Age of Ultron” é visualmente espetacular mas com um argumento demasiado limitado.
  • Jason Pirodsky @ Expats.cz
    • Excerpt: It says a lot that this Avengers flick is a whole lot more interesting when we’re watching these guys sitting around and having a few drinks than when they out saving the world.
  • Amir Siregar @ Flick Magazine [Indonesian]
  • Frank Swietek @ One Guys Opinion
    • Excerpt: Mor of the same, just not as good–lots of sound and fury (along with some Fury) signifying very little.
  • Sarah Ward @ Concrete Playground
  • Andrew Wyatt @ St. Louis Magazine
    • Excerpt: It would be inaccurate to say that Avengers: Age of Ultron is a “critic proof” film—no work is beyond cogently mounted criticism—but as the latest nexus in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it dwells in a forbidden zone ruled by the twin overlords of fandom and profit.
