It was almost inevitable that the Marvel Cinematic Universe would one day bite off more than it can chew.
February 5, 2019
The Avengers don't seem cohesive, and we have weird attempts at character development.

Age of Ultron feels defined by studio interference, making me happy that Joss Whedon is no longer involved with Marvel - a talented writer/director of his stature shouldn't be compromising his vision for anybody.
August 29, 2018
By far the worst movie in the MCU. Also, Why must Ultron have lips?
August 28, 2018
Age of Ultron goes big - big cast, worldwide destruction, giant robot army - but in the end, it feels like very little happened.

There so many plots in this movie and so many scene that are JUST there to set up future movies...It moves too fast.

Hardcore fans will find enough to enjoy here, but I found the pace at times slow, the visual effects somewhat disappointing (particularly compared to The Winter Soldier) and the story less than engrossing.

At 141 minutes, the sequel is almost even in length with the original, so why does it feel so much longer?
June 27, 2017
This blockbuster sequel has a plot more convoluted than the Biblical begats. Knowing that the New Yorker critic Anthony Lane was stumped as well makes me feel slightly better. But it didn't make the movie-going experience any more enjoyable.

It really, really feels like the 11th exhausting film in the unstoppable ring cycle of movies based on the Avengers comic-book heroes -- a vast and increasingly dull series of blockbusters planned out, terrifyingly, as far ahead as 2019.

It's as entertaining as holiday fireworks: initially exciting, which fades; then just loud, and finally the sense of time wasted because everything you just watched was pretty, but utterly meaningless.

Whedon has already announced that he won't be on board for the next installment, and you can hardly blame him. These films don't require a director. All they need are bean counters.

It's not just bad, it's disappointing. [Full review in Spanish]
December 31, 2015
Loud, fluffy, and rather unsatisfying.
November 21, 2015
Director Joss Whedon takes a big stick to the over-stuffed piñata of Marvel Comics' characters and successfully empties out all the candy, but leaves a landscape strewn with plastic wrappers and the promise of a pounding headache
September 8, 2015
pointless
September 1, 2015
Incredibly expensive action scenes full of destruction go on for way too long with little context behind them, leading to overkill and boredom.
July 13, 2015
There's something to be had here, with such fine actors and seamless interlacing into a mega fantasy world, but overall the embarrassment of riches doesn't quite pay dividends.
July 9, 2015
Avengers: Age of Ultron firmly confirms its place as the nadir of the Marvel cinematic universe - which is no small feat, certainly, given that the studio's output has been almost uniformly terrible.
June 9, 2015
The movie is stiff and enervated. It's all punch-punch, banter-banter, like a sitcom in which cities get leveled.
