Movie Review: Avengers Age of Ultron! [No Spoilers]
It’s been month’s media sites and groups dig up as much information behind the scenes and who’s who that you might wonder if you still want to see it. Joss Whedon has been very critical about this sequel holding all his cards to his chest as the way Marvel has been their protocol about what’s going on inside in the production of this film has build up enough hype that sometimes expectations are hard to come by.
With most of television and film adapting a comic book series or inspired from the source material it’s like this Avenger seems fairly common nowadays with the saturation that there’s now market in it.
But unlike Marvel’s 11th film they still have something to offer that’s "smaller. More personal. More painful. By being the next thing that should happen to these characters, and not just a rehash of what seemed to work the first time. By having a theme that is completely fresh and organic to itself." Joss Whedon would add his thoughts during his interview in 2012.
Indeed the narrative visually is bigger in scope but it has the inner conflicts and struggles between these characters. This is not just another superhero film and if you’ve seen the first and had the chance to catch this one you’ll notice how they evolved and have grown over the years.
Not everything is a permanent fix and this film not only shown how they’ve changed over the years they also grow up with the fans. For some the expectations are still high and it’s not that all bad because they constantly kept pushing and continue to tell these stories the right way. But some might not see it that way and would like to be stuck forever in limbo without realizing that they can’t be avenging forever. The beauty of Age of Ultron is constant evolution and it’s organic as the way Whedon tells his stories with these characters.
Though it’s a shame he won’t direct the next couple sequels for Avengers some would understand and he his reasons not to. It’s both fun and at the same time challenging because you’re not just telling one story this one was just one part of even bigger things to come from Marvel.
But with the level of scope in this film you might be enthralled by the visuals and action that entertainment can buy. Though deep down its how this film is being told quite unique as the way the previous films.
Overall you can put a B+ for the grade if you’re looking for high expectations which you might not get. But just being casually entertained at how Joss Whedon has done for this film you’ll know its way beyond avenging.
Avengers Age of Ultron is NOW SHOWING in Ayala Malls Cinemas nationwide from Walt Disney Studios distributed by Columbia Pictures in the Philippines.
