An Honest Take On Avengers Age Of Ultron Movie

Love it or Hate it but must watch it
Avengers Age of Ultron is not a movie you would understand unless you have read several of those Marvel comics. Even if you read a few of those comics, you will still take the time to learn who is who. The worst part is this story is a sequel to the previous Avengers. Without knowing what transpired in the last film, it would be difficult to understand the beginning of the film. In any event, it will take quite some time to stack good guys in mind because suddenly bad ones also become good.
The movie starts with the Avengers going to Hydra to stop Baron Wolfgang von Strucker from experimenting on humans. This Baron was using Loki’s scepter in these experiments. Loki was Thor’s brother in The Avengers (2012 movie). How Loki’s scepter reached the Baron is anybody’s guess.
But on Hydra, the Avengers, i.e., Iron Man, Captain America, The Hulk, Hawkeye, Black Widow, and Thor, have a big fight on their hands with Maximoff twins, i.e., Pietro aka QuickSilver and Wanda aka Scarlet Witch.
As usual the Avengers win and carry the scepter back. Stark/Iron Man decides to use the artificial intelligence in the scepter to control Ultron. But Ultron instinctively attacks the Avengers before Stark can succeed in his mission. Ultron not only takes the specter but also nearly destroys J.A.R.V.I.S., an A.I., belonging to Stark. Ultron now has the Baron’s resources at Sokol via base for improving its basic body. Using the scepter and other resources in Baron’s facility Ultron builds several robot drones. Maximoff twins were looking for revenge with Stark/Iron Man because the weapons used by Stark killed the twins’ parents. Ultron enlists their help because of this hatred towards Stark. Pietro’s ability is his superhuman speed, and Wanda is capable of creating hallucination.
Ultron’s object is to get a perfect human body and destroy the human race. But for that he has to obtain vibranium, a fictitious metal that is also used to make the shield that Captain America/Steve Rogers carries. However, another confrontation ensues between the good guys and bad guys, in which the Avengers are rendered powerless against Wanda’s skills. Because of such mind game, Hulk/Dr. Bruce Banner becomes destructive. Tony Stark/Iron Man controls him but not before there is an uproar against Hulk amongst people. The Avengers go into hiding to recoup.
Ultron uses Hulk’s friend, Dr. Helen Cho, for making synthetic tissue. The twins realize his evil intentions thanks to mind reading and manipulating abilities of Wanda. They join the good guys, who turn up in time to take back Ultron’s synthetic body. Ultron captures Black Widow. Stark restarts J.A.R.V.I.S, using resources from Internet. Thor uses lightening to bring J.A.R.V.I.S to life. Collectively, Avengers rename this artificial intelligence now a humanoid as Vision. Maximoff and Avengers leave for Sokovia with Vision, where Ultron plans to use the vibranium machine for lifting the city vertically and then crashing it. Black Widow wakes Hulk in time. The good guys fight Ultron and his robots. Peitro saves Stark and dies in the process. His sister, Wanda is devastated, and temporarily leaves what she was doing giving Ultron’s drones a chance to activate the vibranium machine. Thor and Stark manage to prevent a major mishap. Vision is left to deal with now powerless Ultron.
As can be seen from the above, much of it is fiction with nothing making much sense. The Avengers movie in 2012 was a novelty with a 92% positive rating from Rotten Tomatoes. But in this movie there seems to be plenty of confusion, coupled with too much of editing and warfare. No wonder it got a lower rating at 75% from Rotten Tomatoes. It is ok though for little children, but older children and others now have ample games with similar stories. However, it is always worth to watch the sequel of Avengers and it is fun to watch Avengers Age of Ultron too due to its impressive themes and magnificent special effects.
