Earth's mightiest heroes, the Avengers.

Marvel has once again managed to successfully lock its audiences' loyalty with yet another superhero super-film. Although, the success of the highly entertaining Box Office hit The Avengers in 2012 raised the standards for any films that were to follow its trail, this energetic sequel, Avengers: Age of Ultron gets straight to the eye-popping action and is packed with smart humour proving itself an up-to-the-mark successor to the original. The only thing it lacks compared to The Avengers is the joy of watching the superheroes assemble for the first time to form an unbeatable army against an ultimate world threat . Now an established dynamic team, the Avengers face an even mightier foe who is stronger than all of them put together.

Tony Stark's experiment with a peacekeeping defence program backfires when a self aware Ultron wakes up with a sinister mission. Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Black Widow and Hawkeye fights back to stop the Ultron in what becomes a global adventure while the super-villain very quickly transforms, upgrades and enhances in strength. As with most Marvel movies, this film is packed with both scientific and heavenly miracles and as usual several new powerful characters are introduced in the script.

Age of Ultron is a marvellous addition to Marvel's collection, offering ultimate action, visual effects, storyline, cast and choreography. RDJ once again outshines his co-actors with an outstanding performance as Iron Man. Mark Ruffalo himself couldn't outperform the Bruce Banner he played in the first Avengers yet still continues to be the most convincing Hulk ever to appear in the big screen. The rest of the superhero team, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlet Johanson and Jeremy Renner , showed an improvement on their previous performances as Captain America, Thor, Black Widow and Hawkeye. The group's chemistry is enhanced as feelings and friendship developed between its members on screen maintaining a balance between keeping the group together and ripping it apart.

This must-watch 'less-drama and all-action' film will be closely followed by the next Marvel movie Captain America: Civil War scheduled for release in May. It will be the third addition to the Marvel Captain America series and the 13th instalment to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
