Avengers: Age Of Ultron (2015)
I saw this joyless not so great sequel in IMAX 3D. Imbecile loudmouth Tony Stark creates a villain (voiced by James Spader) who decides to end the world and two enhanced twins run around doing annoying stuff. Black Widow is suddenly in love with Bruce Banner and spends her time cooing over him like something out of a bad CW show. Captain America is kind of dull. Black Widow recalls her training in the Red Room, Hulk smashes stuff, Thor takes his shirt off and has a realisation about the Infinity Stones and Hawkeye wears black leather, gets the best lines and gets a somewhat jaw dropping reveal.
Ultron’s plot defies lucid summary, the avenging fades in the background and various plot turns are irritants that wear down patience. There are heroic battle poses, fights, slow motion but this is still non-menacing, over blown, deficient and awkward. While not a cataclysmic mistake - it just feels lacking and unfun. Still I’ll be here for ’Captain America: Civil War’ and more Hawkeye.
“Totally support your Avenging.”

Rubbish, even with Peter Cushing as the baddie.
