Avengers : Age of Ultron (2015)

Written and directed by Joss Whedon, the film uses its length to tell you how close it can get to a video game but stay in the realm of a film.

The forced humour doesn’t save the ensemble cast who just don’t have synergy this time round. They are facing an enemy with great odds and introduce challenges and complications in a ‘by the by’ manner. There is no tension, drama, urgency or good old fashioned excitement.

The resolution and turn of events is an unceremonious as the obstacle. End result? Glad it’s over and could have spent time watching or doing something else. Points for a scene between Iron Man and the Hulk and a few frames which are slick. The rest makes Vin Diesel look good.

It’s flat, long and blah. No fun.

1.5/5
