Quarter of a Billion Pointless
By Jack Anderson on March 18, 2018
In The Avengers first movie, the S.H.I.E.L.D. organization is trying to build weapons out of the Tesseract instead of hiding it, in order to one day have the tools to fight the alien bad guys. What happens is that the Tesseract gets stolen by the bad guys and all hell breaks loose.
So... what happens in Avengers: Age of Ultron, you ask? The exact same thing. The Avengers, instead of hiding Loki's scepter, try to use it in order to make a peace system. Annnd it gets stolen by the bad guys.
The only thing I was remotely interested in was the love relationship between Dr Banner and Black Widow. But again, it is totally cliché and not interesting at all.
What is very interesting is that the best character of the movie was by far the bad guy robot. Why? Because, even though he did not have any physical flesh, he actually was the character with the most flesh of all. He was mean and with a real personality.
The entire film is actually summarized brilliantly by Hawkeye: "The city is flying, we're fighting an army of robots and I have a bow of arrows. None of this makes sense."
One of the reasons I also dislike such films is that there is really no violence whatsoever. Sure, the characters are fighting, screaming and shooting at each others. But it is totally without any emotions. Therefore, these kinds of films easily get their PG-13 certification.
I actually found The Avengers a slightly better movie than this one. Everything was a bit better in its predecessor.
A pointless movie, made for a quarter of a billion dollars. Just imagine what you could do with $250,000,000. Anyway, what they did with it was this bad movie, which I give 3 out of 10.
