They say in life that the sequel is never better than the original but in movies there are rare exceptions to that rule in all genres of movies whether it's action, comedy or drama and The Avengers 2: Age Of Ultron sets out to continue to be the exception to the rule.
Now while I don't fancy myself as a comic book aficionado or "geek". I do believe in the neverending tale of good vs. evil and I do believe in heroes and the fight to be heroic and do heroic things when faced with adversity so while I don't particularly follow the comics of these heroes and their stories I easily indentify with them through these fantastic movies.
This time the massive conglomerate of heroes once again reassemble to battle the mysterious and sinister Ultron who is hell bent on destroying The Avengers to pave the way for a new world and through nefarious tactics push The Avengers to their limits not just physically but mentally.
There are quite a few additions to the cast and plot this go around as new characters are introduced into the battle of good vs. evil but the movie is lifted up once again by the performances of Robert Downey Jr, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner and Chris Hemsworth. Director Joss Whedon once again has brought these larger than life heroes back to the big screen to deliver the next chapter of the battle between S.H.I.E.L.D. and their many enemies from this world and not of this world and for two and a half hours it takes you on the wildest ride you will have at the movies this summer.
Filled with exciting action and adventure sequences and lots of humor, The Avengers 2 delivers fantastic fun from start to finish and will leave you on the edge of your seat and coming back for more.
