A good start for Marvel, 6 March 2006
Author: Thomas Plante (TJ1380@gmail.com) from United States

Overall, I have to say that "Ultimate Avengers" represents a good start in Marvel's planned series of films. While the animation isn't the best I've seen, the art and animation style does allow for some genuinely exciting action scenes, particularly in the climactic battle at the end of the film. The only problem is that much of the art comes off as flat and uninteresting during the quieter exposition scenes. "The Ultimates" is a comic book that was praised for it's incredibly detailed artwork, and while there is no way for it to be recreated on film without a gigantic budget, it's still a shame that the movie didn't live up to those expectations. Still, the artwork is far from horrible, and it did grow on me as I watched the film.

Although I don't think the movie quite earns its PG-13 rating like a literal adaptation of "The Ultimates" would, it's still nice to see an animated movie that is aimed at an older audience. The story is smarter than your typical animated fare (although it isn't as interesting as the original comics themselves), and the main characters have more depth than one would expect from an animated film. This is particularly true about the characters of Captain America and Bruce Banner. Captain America has to come to terms with the fact that he has been frozen for the last sixty years and that everyone and everything he knew and believed in has drastically changed or has been lost forever. Meanwhile, Bruce Banner is portrayed here as an unstable man dangerously obsessed with ridding himself of the dangerous monster that he becomes when he gets too stressed (fans of the Hulk will love this movie). He is not a very likable character, and it somehow makes him and the Hulk much more frightening.

The only major complaint I have with this movie is its running time. At only 71 minutes, it's just too short. There are lots of interesting things happening in this movie in terms of character development, but there are many more that remain unexplored simply due to the film's length. Only Captain America and Bruce Banner really get the treatment that these characters deserve, and while the others are indeed interesting, we don't know all that much about them in the end. The running time also can be blamed for the somewhat rushed and anticlimactic ending (although the final fight scene is truly exciting). This is all very unfortunate, because all Marvel had to do was add about anther half-hour to make this movie truly memorable.

In the end, while it isn't perfect, "Ultimate Avengers" does represent a good start in Marvel's planned series of animated films. I'd love to see more of this stuff, especially if Marvel really pulls out all the stops and turns out some movies that really live up to the comics.
