Trivia

Aaron Taylor-Johnson's favorite superhero amongst the Avengers is Chris Hemsworth. Taylor-Johnson was impressed by Hemsworth saying, "The only one who has an otherworldly superhero physique is Hemsworth. The size of his arms is like the size of my thighs. Just to be an actor and transform your physique and body to that level, he's essentially a god. Everyone in the cast is charming and brilliant, but you look around the room and you go 'that guy is definitely the superhero." See more »

Goofs

In the salvage yard the vessel "Churchill" has "Great Britain" as a registry port. This is incorrect as Great Britain is not a registry port (correct example: London, Liverpool..) the convention for lettering on the stern of a vessel is Ships name with registry port below - not country. See more »

Quotes

Ultron: [sitting in a Sokovian church] This church was built in the middle of the city, so everyone could be equally close to God. I like that, the symmetry, the geometry of belief.

Brilliant sequel
1 May 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

After the release of the Avengers in 2012, I excitedly waited the release of its sequel. It set the bar very high. Age of Ultron did not disappoint me at all. I enjoyed every moment of it. I went to see the Avengers sequel at a 7:00 pm IMAX 3-D showing a day early.

In Age of Ultron, the Avengers finally turned into a team that works well together. They have been tracked down HYDRA facilities after the fall of SHIELD as shown in Captain America-Winter Soldier. In one mission, they run into Baron Von Strucker and the Maximoff twins (Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch). After finding Loki's scepter from the first Avengers movie, Tony Stark and Bruce Banner use it to create the artificial intelligence, Ultron. Like in other movies with AI, Ultron goes rogue.

Ultron's plan causes him to butt heads with the Avengers. It also leads up to the creations of the Vision. It's great how the Vision and Ultron have contrasting views of the world and the human race. The movie does a great job of keeping the audience's attention. It has a pretty good story. Also, Age of Ultron has a lot of funny moments that everyone will like.

The movie, like the first Avengers movie, has an amazing cast that works well with each other. I liked the newcomers in the movie as well. The actors who played Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch were great in their respective roles. The best part of the movie is James Spader. He steals the show every time he shows up as Ultron. By the end of the movie, everyone was clapping. Age of Ultron is worth seeing and a great sequel to the first Avengers movie.
