Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015)

Josh Whedon directs Robert Downey Jr., Mark Ruffalo and Chris Evans in this Marvel superhero sequel where a rogue A.I. threatens humanity.

God! This has aged awfully in just half a decade. Wafer thin CGI stuntmen, inconsequential infighting, what seems like an hour given over to teases for future films. The ending does get the pulse racing and Elisabeth Olsen looks fetching as an “enhanced” witch. Anything with Mark Ruffalo and Scarlett Johansson sharing scenes is never going to be unwatchable. But this is not a standalone movie experience… it is just mega-bugeted episodic telly in both frustrating form and limited scope.
