Movies That Don’t Suck: The Avengers: Age of Ultron

We went to see “Avengers: Age of Ultron.”

I have some issues with it — the color palette tends toward grays, the fight scenes are sometimes hard to follow, some of it feels a bit rushed, and I really wanted at least a glimpse of Gwyneth Paltrow as Pepper Potts — but all in all, it was a good movie and lots of fun.

I liked this version of the Maximoff twins; Pietro came across as more likeable than his comic book incarnation while still being a bit of a jerk, and Wanda had a great mix of vulnerability and self-confidence.

And the Vision was excellent, if somewhat ill-defined (see above, re: rushed).

This Ultron was as psychotic as the comic book version, but in a different way. I liked that.

I’d like to see the rumored 3.5-hour director’s cut; I hope they do a Blu-Ray release of it.
