I know. It’s shocking. I actually went to see the second Avengers movie.
Grant wanted to see the movie, and it was our anniversary, so I was nice and went a long. That and I’m a huge fan of the actor who did Ultron’s voice. 😀
I’ve been seeing reviews of this movie going around the internets…and I’m at a loss. Everyone seems to love it.
Why? Why? I don’t understand.
I didn’t hate this movie, I really didn’t (unlike Thor which I really hated), my feelings were more like meh. Sure there was some mildly funny parts.
The plot was just the same as all the other superhero movies.
Bad guys comes, bad and good fight each other, enter buildings collapsing, things blowing up, good guys win. Oh, and the cliche, waaay over used “they are trying to turn us together but we are a team!” The End.
*Sigh* I was bored. The plot wasn’t moving, I wasn’t engaged. I mean we all knew no one important was going to die.
See this is one of my problems with the superhero movies that come out today. There’s never a chance someone important might die, or a chance that the good guys might loose. If I know they are going to win…then what’s the point? I don’t feel for them, I don’t care if they fight the bad guy.
Another one of my frustrations with this movie is the character development. Which was hardly there! Gah. I mean the two new people they brought in, sure they had a sob-story (which wasn’t very convincing) but we didn’t really get to know their characters.
Sooo…they wanted Stark dead, but they didn’t really seem too angry about it? I’m getting mixed signals here guys. And don’t get me started on the romances that appeared out of nowhere. Yes I have seen the first Avengers and a few others of the movies, how else would I decided I dislike superheros? Lol
There was one character that I did really like. And that was Ultron. His character was well done, I mean I think it could have been done better, but he was a good character. I almost wanted him to win. Why? Because he was a rounded character. We knew what he wanted, he showed and told us what he wanted. He was funny, I enjoyed that.
Stark: What’s the vibranium for?
Ultron: I’m glad you asked that, because I wanted to take this time to explain my evil plan.
He was a unique bad guy because he didn’t hate humanity. He honestly didn’t, he was ”helping”. Granted his helping was misguided, but I enjoyed that about his character. “I know you’re good people. I know you mean well. But you just didn’t think it through. There is only one path to peace… your extinction.” At one point I even felt sorry for Ultron, the part when he was Black Widow and he says something to the effect of “I have no one else to talk too.” I thought that was a really good line, especially since now the bad guy monologue makes more sense. 😀
I guess I’ll wrap up here, since this post is getting really long. So yeah guys, I’m a lot of people are going to disagree with me. I’m sorry. I just don’t like superheros I guess.
edit: who else saw that Andy Serkis was in this movie?
