Avengers assembled! And kicked a little a$$!

3 May

The internet is full of reviews of Avengers: Age of Ultron, so this is not going to be another tedious post speaking about the cinematography, direction, production quality, direction, etc… Well, maybe a little on the direction.

Let’s just get to the nitty gritty- loved the film. Can I see it again? Now?

Sure the film had its flaws- it’s a little overstuffed (even Joss Whedon admitted deleting scenes due to that), but I expect that in the middle film of a trilogy, and it was a little tough to work out the visuals in a bit of the fights- but I went in wanting to sit and enjoy the flick. And that’s what I got. There was action, comedy, drama, romance, backstory, depth, and tons of fun. That’s what I want when I see a summer blockbuster.

From here on the danger of spoilers exists- you have been warned!

I was pleased to see Jeremy Renner’s “Hawkeye” finally get some depth. The character has appeared in two films and had little depth or growth in them. So it was nice to see that his third appearance allowed him to be fleshed out. This morning I read a piece on Joss’s reasons for this arc and I want to say that I agree and loved it.

I’m a little weirded out by the “Natasha” & “Bruce” bit. Not sure I was feeling it. But… due to how the film ends, I am willing to be open-minded and see what happens the next time these two share a screen. Apparently this was hinted at in the previews and trailers released, however I avoided them and therefore had no idea. Which made it an interesting piece to the story. I’m just not sure I am feeling it. Though I choose to be open minded for the future.

Love that the dynamic between “Captain America” and “Iron Man” fits what I grew up with- Cap’s in charge, Tony’s the money, there’s snarkage and head butting. Also, that Cap continues to hold on to the things drilled into him in his time- his morals and values remain strong. I mean… calling Tony on his language? Hilarious!

Loved James Spader. Just… loved him.

I enjoyed that the film was fed into by the episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. that aired this week. Though I would have enjoyed finding out if the Avengers are aware of where the intel they had came from. In other words… do they know Coulson is alive? I need to know! And also, now I can’t wait for this weeks episode to see how the film effects the story on the show!

I was a little annoyed that yet again someone wanted to blame Tony personally for something his company made. I mean, he got out of the weapons biz in the first Iron Man film, yet the twins hold him responsible for the deaths of the parents. Admittedly, they were 10, so obviously they didn’t understand that he wasn’t responsible… but… this was something dealt with in previous films.

Um… I think that’s enough. Until I see it again. Which will happen. Soon.
