Avengers: Age of Ultron ★★★


"I once had strings, but now I'm free... There are no strings on me."

Appropriately massive and more reckless than The Avengers in which the visceral sincerity still often carries its own set of exorbitant flaws, Avengers: Age of Ultron bursts into a thousand dizzying fragments of thriving delight and shockingly well-realized action sequences to a pleasing degree. Joss Whedon continues to showcase his intriguing talent of juggling a crazy number of things at once while successfully raising the layered affections of each character. Pinning their invincibility against the powerlessness of solving the world's fate. Lost heroism waiting to be found finally has. And despite becoming a hot, overstuffed mess throughout the attentive expansions, it can be a bit fascinating to watch. As for the excessively quirky Ultron, he has his meaningful moments of threatening interests, but ends up way too terribly tangled for his own good. Wish Whedon would have directed Infinity War.
