The Avengers: Age of Ultron

When Tony Stark jumpstarts a dormant peacekeeping program, things go terribly awry, forcing him, Thor, the Incredible Hulk, Captain America and the rest of the Avengers to reassemble. As the fate of Earth hangs in the balance, the team is put to the ultimate test as they battle Ultron, a technological terror hell-bent on human extinction.

A great sequel packed with amazing action sequences, mind blowing special fx and good storytelling. This is the film that feels the most like a live action comic book. Yet there are a few elements that could have been better. First, it is too short. Most of the plot feels rush… no wonder since the director's cut was 60 minutes longer. Changes were made to the Ultron character. He is now arrogant and cocky and not simply the determined killing machine of the comic book. But don't worry, Marvel delivers once again. Please note that there is only one mid-credits scene.
