The Age of Ultron is a movie about a robot who’s really pissed off. I mean if you’re going to be built by Robert Downey Jr. then you probably expect something more from a star of Weird Science. Maybe something like a nice rack.
When you watch this movie if you are looking for a plot then just realize this is not the Age of Adeline. I mean the biggest plot decision in this movie is where do we put the next explosion. Before or after someone says one line.
But even in this movie I still feel for Hawkeye. The producer is like, “Ruffalo you get to be massive and green. Johansson you get to have the strength of 27 ninjas. Renner why don’t you go over there and pick up that bow. I want to see if you can stop a whole robot army.’
That’s pretty much how the whole movie goes. Ultron tries to take out the Avengers and then they destroy a whole city block.
This goes back an forth until Ultron finally decides he’s really sick of losing. So he creates his own version of the meteor that killed the dinosaurs. He does this buy airlifting a whole town off of the ground. Yeah that’s pretty much the stupidest way to do it. So it’s no big shocker when Ultron finally bites the dust.
The Straight dope: It’s fun to watch this movie. And when they bring in a new character you don’t really care about, just wait two seconds and they’ll wipe your mind clean with a nice explosion.
