*My Thoughts*
Note: This review contains NO spoilers

We finally watched it last night. Whoa! This epic follow-up to the first film was absolutely filled with action-packed scenes from beginning to end. And, boy, the action was intense. There was so much going on that even the subplots could easily be missed... So, you definitely have to pay attention...haha! Despite all the so-so reviews, I still enjoyed this film. I love the comaradarie the cast has in character; it makes their interactions with each other in the movie all the more believable. The characters' angst and banter worked well, and even the humor carried well at the right moments. We definitely got some laughs in. And...wow...James Spader brought Ultron to life! Plus, the introduction of new characters as well was...just awesome! To go any detail would spoil it for those who haven't watched it yet...haha! But, the film was filled with hints of another film...lol! I know...I'm gushing like a fangirl...but, then again, I am! So I will gush!

Avengers: Age of Ultron is yet another epic installment of The Avengers franchise that is action-packed and adventure-filled with a touch of drama and humor.

My rating:
