Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015)
- Posted on
A joyous jumble of a movie in which the Avengers start to really click as a team. Stark’s mad-scientist-playing-God routine spirals out of control when he blends Asgardian heirlooms with AI and advanced robotics. The team ends up having to battle and movie Ultron, a part Terminator/part Skynet abomination with some unsurprising designs on the future of humankind – i.e. extinction. That Ultron the bad robot has a couple of rogue superheroes doing his bidding provides extra fun. After the monster bot is obliterated and the rogues are won over to the other side, a glimpse of Thanos’s purple mug reminds us that this was likely part of a wider plot – but then again, isn’t everything in the MCU part of a wider plot?
