What is it all about?

Providing the money music to its fans to dance to its tune and distributing fodders for arguments to the non believers of Hollywood’s end of the world disaster themes where super heroes are the saviors.. Marvel’s mega star ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ is back after three years and its overstuffed, light and rigid in its stance (plot) to stick to the again and again seen super hero thingie.. that starts behaving wildly after some time.

Seen, designed and packed from the eye of the studios (Marvel, Disney) this ‘artificial indulgence’ is likely to win ‘big’ for them thanks to its global following and undisputed fan base in this part of the world - the India release before USA is an indication plus the smashing performance of ‘Fast and Furious 7’ adds more hope. However the likely ‘big’ achievement of the studio also underlines the ‘power’ of this genre to diminish ‘serenity’ of a filmmaker like Joss Whedon to a pity low.

The Story

Joss Whedon returns in this follow -up of 'Thor: The Dark World', 'Iron Man 3', 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier', 'Guardians of the Galaxy',and again we have our super heroes - The Avengers - Captain America/Steve Rogers (Chris Evans), Iron Man/Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), Hulk/Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo), Hawkeye/Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner), and Black Widow/Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johanssen) joining forces to face a combined threat. After eliminating the leftovers of the HYDRA organization Tony Stark and Bruce Banner combine to create something mighty and beneficial to save the world...  Unaware of the consequences Ultron (voiced by James Spader) emerges with an agenda of destroying the earth and its humans.

What to look out for

A ‘fan’ tastic franchise with loads of action. Some smart humour 'Thor’s hammer gag is the best part. Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and Elizabeth Olsen are interesting introductions.. a special effects bonanza for nerds of this genre a bumper team of 19 companies coming together for this fanfare. Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr and the beautiful Scarlett Johanssen are delight to watch.

What not

Overstuffed this mind blowing action crash booms in a snap from one scene to another leaving it up to the audience to guess the intentions of the warriors with special powers. It goes on a wild noisy ride. Ultron’s reasons and motivation to go against Avengers is shaky.. the concept of manmade enemy more dangerous than an alien super power may have sounded better on paper (Rajinikanth Robot also made the same argument) and  I founded that much better in its conviction.. the makers are inconsistent in distinguishing the good and the evil over here.. plus the chemistry between Black Widow and Hulk is weird. The first part was far better in its character establishments.. the whole exercise over here seems to make a marketing merchandise platform for its upcoming two-part ‘Infinity War’ due in 2018 and that part is well done..

Conclusion: 'Avengers : Age Of Ultron' will make its fans happy but the follow up to one of the top grosser is overstuffed and incoherent.
