Avengers: Age of Ultron (No Spoilers Or Really Any Content At All)

You don't need to know a lot from me about Avengers: Age of Ultron, so I'll keep this brief and spoiler-free.

First, it meets your expectations, unless you have weird expectations, in which case, that's on you. If you're wrong about what this movie is and does, I can't help you.

Second, it's not quite as good as the first one. But the first one was a fucking achievement. This one has busier action sequences and a couple of them get out of hand, especially the one that opens the movie, which also has some dodgy effects.

Third, the last word of the movie is something I take issue with. You'll know what I mean when you see it. It's the kind of thing I usually praise the Marvel movies for avoiding. But this is a very small point.

Apart from the abovementioned minor complaints, holy shit, that's the stuff we watch the Marvel movies for. Unapologetic, competent comic-book spectacle with continuity and solid performances. Also, Hulkbuster Vs. Hulk is fucking awesome. Like, more awesome than you thought it would be.

Disappointed

I really wanted to see them grounded and realistic like the new Fantastic Four will supposedly be. But I kid. It was very cool.
