“The Avengers” came fully assembled. But “Avengers: Age of Ultron” – both were written and directed by Joss Whedon – has so many moving parts that some assembly is required.
The less I thought about this sequel, the more I liked it.
But the more I pondered it, all I remembered was the big picture and the spectacle. A bunch of super-pals hang out at a high-tech playhouse where they josh around waiting for a new super villain to strike.
This one is an artificial intelligence created in the arrogant image of industrialist Tony Stark, aka Iron Man, whose dream is to create a guardian angel to protect the earth so the Avengers wouldn’t have to.
