Avengers: Age of Ultron – Too much of a Good Thing?

Other than true love is there such a concept as too much of a good thing? Could you ever have too much Krug Grand Cuvee Champagne? Can a husband buy too many Roses for his wife’s anniversary? Has a woman ever turned down just one more luxuriously delicious piece of rich Belgium Chocolate? Can a sports car ever be too quick from 0 to 60?

Is it possible this $250,000,000 Avengers: Age of Ultron had too many fabulously produced, technologically brilliant action packed scenes? In an Action Adventure movie can the good guys ever kill too many bad guys? Can there be a few too many suspenseful and miraculous moments where the poor innocent civilians come within an inch of losing their lives only to be saved by two guys dressed in tights and wearing cups? OK, forget that line.

Marty and I liked “Ultron” and it truly is a technological wonder but it didn’t grab me. There were moments when I was bored with the bloodless killing of evil machines and just a few too many really well done computer generated action scenes. I just can’t bring myself to tell you this is a must see flick. However, if you like this genre you will not want to miss it. On the other hand after awhile I found myself longing for some dialogue, some human interaction. At one point I even asked myself why didn’t we see The Age of Adeline with Blake Lively instead.

Damn I must be getting old!


One thought on “Avengers: Age of Ultron – Too much of a Good Thing?

  1. Really great review. As soon as I had seen it I loved everything about from technical mastery to character acting. On further reflection this is not a perfect movie but is a great summer flick. And given it had to live up to its predecessor I think it did as well as it could have! I happened to review the film during my post film ecstasy but still found something worthwhile to say and I would love for you to check it out! https://slatethesilverscreen.wordpress.com/2015/04/29/marvels-avengers-age-of-cameos/
