Avengers: Age of Ultron

What is green, high tech, old-fashioned, highly trained, and out of this world? Well, in case you didn’t hear, the sequel to “The Avengers” movie came out on Friday, May 1. As soon as it hit theaters, students rushed with their friends to see it.

“It was action packed and left you on the edge of your seat,” sophomore Daniel Standifer said. “I loved the whole movie.”

While in the first Avengers movie the heroes had to deal with an alien invasion, nothing prepared them for what happened in this movie. In this sequel, Tony Stark is back at it again, this time with a little help from Doctor Robert Bruce Banner.

In the last Iron Man movie, viewers got to witness the stress and anxiety Stark was dealing with due to the alien invasion. In the Age of Ultron, Stark is doing whatever he can to protect those around him from having to go through that again. Coming up with the idea to create a type of force field around Earth to keep unwanted enemies out, Doctor Banner assists Stark in creating what becomes Ultron-another artificial intelligence software.

Ultron doesn’t turn out as expected and ends up destroying J.A.R.V.I.S., leaving The Avengers to fend for themselves. The group is introduced to two more characters, Pietro and Wanda Maximoff. They are twins who were orphaned at a young age and have special powers of their own. While students still loved seeing the original characters, they also enjoyed the other comic book characters that were introduced in the movie.

“I loved the entire movie,” senior Antonetta Berishaj said, “but I just thought the scene where Wanda walks out the door and just starts destroying Ultron robots left and right was epic.”

The Avengers: Age of Ultron may have had mixed reviews but even those that were on the fence about it, agreed that it was an action packed movie.

“It was an okay movie, but not as good as the first one,” junior Andrew Nguyen said. “I would recommend it because even though it wasn’t a great plot, a lot of new heroes and characters were introduced.”
