I’m not TYPICALLY a superheroes fan or “boy movies,” but I do have a confession to make. I adore Robert Downey, Jr. and I adore the Iron Man character. I feel like I grew up with Robert Downey, Jr. and he’s such a talented actor. Admittedly, the Tony Stark, Iron Man character is hands-down, my favorite eccentric superhero of all time. So, of course, I was on board to see Avengers Age of Ultron.
Avengers is great because it really is a movie that pleases my entire family (Note: It is PG-13. It may not be appropriate for smaller children.) Who wouldn’t love a movie with Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, and The Hulk? When they team up together to defend against Ultron, there’s sure to be action, adventure, and chockful of laughs—because superheroes can be funny too!
I love this movie, in particular, because it has such an all-star cast of characters and heroes. If you haven’t seen the original 2012 Avengers movie, see it first to get the background! Although, you could easily pick up the plot in this movie very easily.
Basically, Tony Stark attempts to revive the peacekeeping forces of the Avengers, thereby sparking a chain of events that give Ultron the power to destroy the earth. It is up to the Avengers to stop the villainous Ultron, before it’s too late. The catch is, Tony Stark (Iron Man) is responsible for the creation of Ultron and now, he must stop him from destroying the human race. Can the Avengers put their differences aside and are they strong enough to defend against Ultron?
This is a great movie for families with older children. It is also a movie that men and women would love. The Black Widow (played by Scarlett Johansson) character is one of my favorite characters. She is a strong woman, whose power is equivalent to the other characters. I love that Black Widow and The Hulk have developed a very intimate relationship together. It revels more of their multi-dimensional sides as well as their vulnerability.
I really enjoyed the Avengers movie, as much or more than I’ve enjoyed the first Avengers movie and Iron Man. I love that you see more about the flaws and strengths of the superheroes. I’ve grown to love all of the “good guys and gals” more and more, as the characters have evolved.
Are you planning to see Avengers? Who will you see it with?
