Avengers: Age of Ultron in 100 Words

Avengers Assemble was the first time I thought I saw a comic book truly given life on film.

I was wrong.

Heroes weave in and out nonchalantly and the main cast feel like real people rather than broad ideas, giving Age of Ultron an edge over its predecessor. The initial wow is gone though and some chaotic action scenes contain jarring CGI. Oddly it would have benefited from a longer run time too.

Ultron makes a vivid villain, mechanically maniacal yet full of human quirks thanks to Spader’s marvellous performance. An entertaining blockbuster, but not the game changer many expected.
