STORY – 0
DIRECTOR – 1
ACTOR – 0
MUSIC – 0
CULT – 0

Verdict – 1/5

 

Pros –

1) Crossbones fighting Cap. America
2) Return Of General Ross
3) Ant-man & Spider-man should be in a MCU movie teaming together : Paul Rudd made best of his short screen-time.
4) Berlin airport battle : Giant-Man sequence
5) Daniel Brühl : Convincing as always
6) Re-enactment of Civil War # 7 Cover Art.

 

Cons –

1) Basically this movie core secret is Bucky responsible for killing Howard Stark
2) Martin Freeman : too less screen time
3) Tom Holland as Peter Parker : Can’t let Toby out of my head,he’ll remain the definitive Spidey.

Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015)

STORY – 1
DIRECTOR – 1
ACTOR – 1
MUSIC – 0
CULT – 0

VERDICT – 3/5

 

PROS –
1) “Veronica” vs. Hulk
2) Opening Sokovia Battle; Absolute comic-book action
3) Dark Haunting visions instigated by Scarlet Witch
4) Ultron: supervillain with a personality
5) Superhero conversations – just like The Avengers (2012)
6) Paul Bettany finally making a physical appearance as Vision (and lifting “Mjolnir” ).
7) Seoul street battle (with flying truck scene)
8) Hawkeye’s family

 

CONS –
1) No post end credit scene – it was a bummer
2) The story is multi-layered in the first half but ended up with a mediocre AI droid with the most cliched mindset.
3) Loki’s scepter is “still” the cornerstone of the story.
4) The shallow character development of Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch.
5) Andy Serkis – strong screen presence but less screen time (hoping he’ll return in MCU)
6) Thor and Dr. Selvig plot – leaves too many unanswered questions
