Review: Avengers: Age of Ultron

GodDAMN but Joss Whedon's still got it!

I've seen some tepid reviews of Age of Ultron floating about and I have to say I think any negativity is unjustified. That was a fun, action-packed film that's true to comic-book craziness.

Set in the events after Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Avengers: Age of Ultron starts off with action and keeps a steady pace until the very end. Long-time Marvel comic fans will get plenty of cameos and Easter eggs to keep one happy.

Oh, the plot is crazy as hell, but it's perfect for a comic book movie, especially an Avengers flick.

I can't believe the actress who plays the Scarlet Witch is the younger sister of the Olsen Twins. Good lord time has flown by.

It's really not much of a spoiler, but there's only one little mid-credits scene at the end. When a familiar face picks up something and makes a pronouncement, you're good to go. You don't really need to wait until the absolute end of the film for another scene.
