Perhaps my biggest let down was Ultron. Maybe I was expecting too much, but Artificial Intelligence for me spelled an awesome horror type movie where you're being watched no matter where you go, a thrilling comment on how technology today is overtaking and that if it grew a brain, it'd be perfectly poised for world domination. Imagine my disappointment, when Ultron amounted to nothing more than a low budget Transformer cracking jokes. The main reason AI's are so threatening is that they're emotionless, unfeeling, ready to kill humans. Ultron did not fit the bill.
Undoubtably the biggest insult was my favourite characters, whom I couldn't even recognise. It physically pains me to think about what they did to Hawkeye (A wife and kids? NO. NO. NO.) Never mind the Black Widow, a previously awesome kickass character who was reduced to 'Auntie Nat', purely there to serve as a tragic love interest for the Hulk.
As for the plot? Surely there has to be one, to justify the inadequacy of the rest of the movie. Sorry readers - Age of Ultron is just one long push of nothingness to try and make an excuse to use cool CGI (the only redeeming factor.) Humour is thrown in to try and keep your interest, but the only thing it manages to do is break the tension at any possible moment that might have gained your attention. Despite hating it (hey, I'm a dedicated fan), I've seen the movie three times and could still not tell you what it's about.
To conclude, if you're going to make one good decision this year, make it not seeing Age of Ultron. Just erase it from the history of Marvel. If enough of us ignore it, it will go away. Pretend it never happened and we can go back to enjoying the otherwise phenomenal Marvel movies.
