Is it just me, or does Ultron look like General Grievous?

Take away the lower jaw on Ultron and it very much resembles Grievous. Of course Ultron has pretty much had that helmet design more or less since his inception so Grievous is biting on Ultron's style, yo! :o

Heads up, the comic-con footage has leaked so keep an eye out. I haven't found it yet.

yeah I wouldn't click on that spoiler tag unless you want to know the movie.

Marvel just keeps on producing the goods. This movie is tight. On one hand balancing the action/story while injecting enough humour and one-liners to keep you chuckling along. Lots of stuff going on at the end of the movie, setting up next installments as well as foreshadowing Infinity Wars. Once again Whedon does a great job of sharing the load with his massive cast, without sacrificing too way in the way of character development. This alone is a huge undertaking in itself.

AOU also has one of the best MCU sequences of all motherfucken time. Just after Cap gives Thor "you had to ask"...just perfect. :yay: The one track camera movement at the beginning in Sovakia was also :metal: which leads into the slo-mo "ensemble" shot seen in most of the trailers.

Stick around for mid-credit scene of what is to come. I hung around until the end of the credits but alas...nada.

Thanks for the thoughts there, SI! A lot of the critic reviews so far seemed to be kinda reserved about it, it's good but not as good as the first, doesn't have same magic, etc. Whatever, I'm still stoked. I have my ticket in hand, one week left for us westerners. Glad to hear you liked it SI. :heavymetal:

hey no problem ! and to briefly preface my limited AOU review, let me just say I didn't walk out of Avengers 1 in some sort of ravenous sheep hysteria like so many did. It took me a couple of viewings to really get on board with that. AOU had me from the opening scenes. Whedon has loaded this movie with some great imagery, sly 'inside' quips, and probably more set-upos for future MCU movies than any other.

I'm not gonna spoil it as I know for many this release is still a week away. Suffice to say I would find it difficult to believe that any fan of previous Marvel movies could dislike this entry :)

I can't recall an explanation as to why Iron Man is back on the team after the final events of IM3? Perhaps someone can shed some light?

Enjoy !

Tony Stark never quit at the end of Iron Man 3. He order Jarvis to issue the "clean slate" protocol, destroying all of the active Iron Legion armor's so he could spend more time with Potts. He then has the shrapnel in his heart removed which means he no longer needs the embedded arc reactor, which he pitches off the cliff.

Stark then say's, (taken from the bluray rip i'm watching) "My armor was never a distraction, or a hobby, it was a cocoon. Now I'm a changed man. You can take away my house, all my tricks and toys, but one thing you can't take away - I AM Iron Man"

So basically he started over from scratch, but with less obsessiveness, spending more time banging Potts.


Now what I"M wondering is how AOU sets up Civil War with Tony? What in this leads Tony to break away from the Avengers and go against Steve?

I haven't seen the film yet but I imagine the fact Tony is largely responsible for creating Ultron will be one of the biggest factors for the initial discord. The Superhero Registration Act in Civil War will further the divide.

Just watched the very worthwhile english bootleg that just dropped, VERY good superhero movie. quick thoughts:

They made Hawkeye interesting!
Hulkbuster v Hulk fight was superb

Ultron was too underpowered for my liking. Not maniacal enough. He never seemed like a real threat. If Captain America can go toe to toe with him on the top of a truck and only be out of breath after the fight, then Ultron's been gimped!

ILM are still the best in the biz!

Scarlett Johansson is one of the most beautiful women on the planet. Hot DAMN

Music was serviceable.
Needed more Vision.

Did NOT in my eyes set up Tony being such a threat for Civil War. Lead's me to wonder what the plan is?

Ironically, two of the things a lot people seemed to criticize the most from A1 was Hawkeye being a zombie (Renner bitched a lot about it too) and Cap being weak/underpowered. I'm sure Hawkeye getting a big chunk of back-story was due in part to those criticisms.

Cap seemingly not being hurt by Ultron's lasers bothered me too. At first I thought is he blocking them with his shield, it was sometimes hard to tell with action being so frenetic but he did take quite a few zaps so I guess Ultron's firepower wasn't all that dangerous or he had it set to stun. :whateva:

I've seen the news that Loki was also supposed to put in an appearance but was cut which makes me wonder why they felt they needed to pack this movie with so much? It's not like it was going to be the final hurrah or anything.

It was Whedon's last hurrah and he knew it. He clearly wanted to boil the ocean with AOU and in doing so made a film that lacked focus and, in a lot of ways, made no sense.

Guardians was on today (so was Avengers) and they are both far superior films for having that focus. It's much easier to suspend disbelief and swallow the "impossible" when you're not being distracted by a bunch of shit that doesn't make any sense, or plot holes that make you try to invent explanations to follow the action.

I agree on the lack of focus; they tried so many disparate ideas and they didn't really work together cohesively.

It actually felt at times like they were trying too hard to distance the Marvel universe from the ending of Man of Steel and what DC is doing with their ultra grimdark movies. So much of the big action sequences were devoted to protecting civilians that it almost felt like the point of the fights was to show off "See? We care about collateral damage! We care!" instead of defeating the bad guys. Speaking of bad guys, between the all the wise cracking and disposable robots, Ultron never really felt like a credible villain.

It's ultimately a fun movie and I liked it, but it still felt like there was a lot of wasted potential. I generally really enjoy a lot of Joss Whedon's work, including the first Avengers film, but he does have a tendency of falling into some bad habits the longer he sticks with a franchise. He tends to start focusing too much on characterization and snappy jokes at the detriment of story.

That's also two Avengers movies where the team is basically fighting an endless number of battle droids.
