When Tony Stark and Bruce Banner try to jump-start a dormant peacekeeping program called Ultron, things go horribly wrong and it's up to Earth's mightiest heroes to stop the villainous Ultron from enacting his terrible plan.
As Steve Rogers struggles to embrace his role in the modern world, he teams up with a fellow Avenger and S.H.I.E.L.D agent, Black Widow, to battle a new threat from history: an assassin known as the Winter Soldier.
Samuel L. Jackson,
Armed with a super-suit with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, cat burglar Scott Lang must embrace his inner hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym, plan and pull off a heist that will save the world.
Tony Stark creates the Ultron Program to protect the world, but when the peacekeeping program becomes hostile, The Avengers go into action to try and defeat a virtually impossible enemy together. Earth's mightiest heroes must come together once again to protect the world from global extinction.Written by
(At around fifty-four minutes) This is the first live-action appearance of Tony Stark's Hulkbuster armor. It had previously appeared in various Marvel animated series and movies. See more »
(at around 39 mins) When the twins are describing the events that caused their parent's deaths, and their subsequent rescue, they mention that the bomb was only a few feet from themselves, yet people in all other (non USA) countries would relay that information in metric units, aka "only a meter away". Actually, this is incorrect as people in the UK would also refer to this in feet, not all non-US countries use a metric system. However, Eastern Europe (where Sokovia is set) mainly uses metric system. See more »
[the Avengers are in the process of infiltrating a HYDRA base in Sokovia]
Report to your stations immediately. This is not a drill. We are under attack!
[Tony hits the shield around the base]
Language! Jarvis, what's the view from upstairs?
The central building is protected by some kind of energy shield. Strucker's technology is well beyond any other Hydra base we've taken.
Loki's scepter must be here. Strucker couldn't mount this defense without it. At long last.

The opening title has the main title ("The Avengers") fade into shadow, to reveal the subtitle ("Age of Ultron") with glowing red lights, Ultron's trademark. See more »
Even with high expectations it doesn't even disappoint!
Tony Stark wants to invent something that benefits mankind but instead turns out to be the one responsible for the creation of this dangerous self thinking robot, Ultron. The Avengers must assemble once again to fight this menace that wants to kill all the humans on this planet. But Ultron is powerful and the way he is presented makes you wonder how our heroes can defeat him. Just you wait and see...
What I liked best about Age of Ultron was the fact that all our favorite heroes get equal screen time to show of what they can do. Although the action scenes are great (Iron Man in the Hulkbuster versus Hulk!) the thing that really makes this movie work is the interaction between all the people involved. Stark and Banner, Banner and Black Widow, Hawkeye and Black Widow, Thor and Captain America... like in real life you can see with whom each of them get along best. It's also nice to see that Hawkeye gets a lot of screen time. He even gets the most interesting background story of the bunch. Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch make a great addition to the team (sort of) and there are a lot more cameos in the movie (although I don't think anybody spotted Lou Ferrigno!).
The movie runs about two and a half hours and that's pretty long. It could have been a little bit shorter, but overall I didn't mind. With great action scenes (pay attention to the opening action sequence in which he introduces the Avengers in one mighty shot!), nice humor, a lot of cameos and a satisfying finale writer/director Joss Whedon has everything under control and that pays of.
This year (2015) The Avengers Age of Ultron will shatter all box office records and that will be a fitting reward for giving most Marvel fans and 'normal' moviegoers this big treat. Even Pixar slipped (with Cars 2 and Brave) so everybody's waiting for Marvel to produce a real stinker. Although that day may come, The Avengers part 2 is not the movie that will be responsible for that!
