Before you go any further, read my philosophy on spoilers here. (Though for this one i’m going to try to keep them to a minimum.)
Avengers Age of Ultron is one of the most anticipated nerd movies of the year. You’ve waited long and hard. You rewatched every Avenger character movie to make sure you knew everything that you needed to know. You binged Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D on Netflix and pirated the other episodes online to make sure that you knew absolutely everything that happened. And the day finally came. You were in line, and went to the cashier, and was finally able to say “One ticket to Avengers Age of Ultron”. But now here you are, reading my Avengers Age of Ultron Movie Review (because you all just knew I would have a lot to say about it).
I went to see the film last night with my younger brother, who is an Avenger movie fan as well. I had him buy the tickets while he was on his April vacation and he had them under a magnet on the fridge for about a week and half. It was exciting for the both of us, and I told him to bring some tissues incase I cried of happiness. The moment came, and this is the moment you’ve been waiting for: the official missalyssamichelle.net Avengers Age of Ultron Movie Review.
Avengers Age of Ultron Movie Review
I went into Age of Ultron with very high expectations. I had been looking forward to this film for a very long time. I was beyond excited and went in knowing that this film was going to be an absolute hit. I walked out of there being absolutely right.
In short, it was amazing. I loved every second of it.
The first thing I’m going to say is the end credit scene is none of what you have been seeing floating around online. No, it is not Tom Hiddleston making an unexpected cameo in the end (like what I WANTED since Idris Elba does appear in the film). It is something completely different that, depending on who you are, you will not see coming.
Okay, now onto the next order of business: Stan Lee’s cameo. The thing that my brother and I were most curious about in this film, naturally. I was shocked to find that him & I were the only two people in a packed sold-out show to care about this. Anyways, it happens in the first maybe 30 minutes or so of the film.
Stark is hosting a big party at Avengers tower to celebrate a thing (see, trying not to spoil it). Cap and Thor are sitting with a bunch of World War 2 vets and the two of them are about to take a shot of some Asgardian alcohol when one of the guys asks (that guy isn’t Stan Lee), & Thor says that it’s over a 1000 years aged from Asgard. That’s when Stan Lee says something that makes you laugh and is like “Give it to me!”. The scene ends with Thor and Cap escorting Stan Lee out of the room while he is drunk as hell.
The next thing that totally surprised me had to do with Hawkeye. After something happens with the Avengers while they are trying to stop Ultron from doing a thing with the magic twins (i’ll get to them), they are told to lay low for a while by Maria Hill. Clint takes them to a safe house, which ends up being his personal family home. The rest is for you to find out, but let me just say that Clintasha shippers (like myself) are not going to be happy with that part. It crushes your ship. But you’ll be happy because what happens is also adorable as hell.
Since this was a rumor swirling around, yes, in this film Bruce and Natasha sort of establish their feelings for each other and admit that they want to be together. Natasha fucks that up towards the end and we’re left in the end with having no idea where the fuck Hulk is.
Now for my biggest thing: The Vision. (This part will be spoilery, just a warning) The Vision has the yellow infinity stone embodied into his head. It is quite literally a part of him. He comes about because Tony and Bruce implant JARVIS into him rather than the evil Ultron was planning. This makes Cap unhappy as well as the two magic twins, and they all start fighting until Thor comes along and uses his hammer to power up the machine making the Vision. The process finishes and then there’s a thing and a speech but this is the main thing: The Vision picked up Mjölnir.
The most powerful weapon across the nine realms that is only supposed to be able to be fully used by Thor was picked up by the Vision and handed to Thor. Later on, they made jokes about it.
Everybody in the theater gasped when the Vision just casually picked up Mjölnir and handed him over to Thor. I was shocked. But that was a key point in the plot, because after that everybody on the team trusted The Vision to be on their side and help fight for good.
Now Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver are two twins who were genetically experimented on by Hyrda to have extra terrestrial abilities. Quicksilver has super speed because of fast metabolism and Quicksilver is able to work with neuro-energy or something (its explained more indepth in the movie). At first, they want revenge on Tony because it was one of his weapons that orphaned them, but then once Scarlet Witch finds out what Ultron actually wants to do, they leave to support the Avengers and help their cause.
Overall, it was a fantastic film. I can’t say much else or else i’ll accidentally give the whole story away, but The Vision is there to say and so is Scarlet Witch. The Avengers start up another secret base somewhere, and that is where I think and hope that S.H.I.E.L.D will eventually relocate for the better and come one big organization again.
I hope you enjoyed this review. If you’ve seen it already, tell me what your thoughts were in the comments below!
