Avengers Age of Ultron

We were able to see Avengers Age of Ultron the Friday it was released while celebrating a youngins birthday.  It didn't disappoint.  There may be some spoilers here so I'll throw out the SPOILER ALERT warning.  We always worry about the sequels but this one delivered.  I really enjoyed some of the character development especially the relationship between the Black Widow and the Hulk.  This added a new depth to the team while as always complicating matters.  We also see a side of Hawkeye we've never seen before.  The relationships between the rest of the main characters stays pretty much status quo while there is a big rift causing angst among the characters. 

Scarlett Witch (loved her costume/look) and Quick Silver are added to the fray very quickly.  They add another dimension to everything going on and I really liked their characters.  They are introduced at the beginning of the film which involves a ton of action which is a great way to start things off.  And there is plenty of action.  The movie sails along and is ending before you know it.  There are the fan favorite fights involving the Hulk and Iron Man in his Hulk Buster armor which was a fun sequence. 

Ultron, played by James Spader, was a very good character.  His moment of reveal to the Avengers was one of the best parts of the movie and kind of creepy.  I he was a good foil to the Avengers.  Also brought in as a baddy was Vision.  A character I've always liked it was a thrill to see him get a pretty major role though you don't see him for about 2/3 of the movie.  The Falcon and War Machine are also players in the movie but with pretty minor roles. 

This movie should do great at the box office.  It has everything you could want from an Avengers movie.  Tons of action, character development, twists, and conflict.  I can't wait to see what the remaining Marvel movies look like as this is all moving things towards the Civil War storyline.  I'm excited and hope everyone gets a chance to see Avengers Age of Ultron.
