What did you think of it, or at least the mecha-related parts of this? Personally:
Hulkbuster fight was great Vision was great
Ultron drones were decent, although never menacing
Ultron Prime's design was meh, but THOSE FUCKING LIPS, they really made him considerably worse. Also his lines and character really worked, but he ended up feeling unthreatening, especially in the second half.
Opinions? Please use spoiler tags out of kindness for our Burger friends.
AoU is grander in scope than everything they've done so far, the sheer number of characters getting actual focus grants it.
I'd say it ends up being generally an improvement over the first Avengers movie, but (I realize it sounds like a paradox) considerably less hype. Overall, in my opinion:
>more balanced, everyone gets focus and depth
>better fights, especially the
Hulkbusterone as I said
>less forced humour everywhere
>the issues about AIs and humanity are clichés, but not too watered down
>seeds lots of plots for the future
>actual worldly feeling, we go to Europe, South Korea, somewhere in Africa
>character in the OP is great
>twins are not bad and Wanda is hot
>Ultron feels a bit off and ultimately ends up never feeling like the HUGE menace that could fuck everything up whenever he wanted
>action scenes are not all that great anyway, the final battle really drags
>plot feels railroaded here and there so that the audience does not feel lost
>still too many one-liners for my taste
>feels crammed with characters, so for everyone to shine the movie is longer and you feel that
Nah, that was bullshit. Someone else does. Namely
Vision, they end up explaining it in the movie as "it's a robot so he doesn't need to be worthy"
Oh, and Tony doesn't have any particular new armor except the one I mentioned in the spoiler tags, Iron Man 3 had all the goodness it seems
>forgot to rate
A solid 7, maybe 7.5, of course considering the added MCU bonus and the little nods to comics and all that. As a movie itself it'd be a 6.5, good rewatchable popcorn flick.
>That last spoiler
I seriously hope you're paraphrasing.
Being "pure of heart" from technically being a newborn makes more sense than LOL TECHNOLOGY!I mean, I know that's the underlying theme of the movie, but even a proud /m/an like me has limits.
I had a good time seeing it yesterday with a group of friends. The Hulkbuster fight is pretty cool. Since Hulkbuster's codename is Veronica, I wonder if there's a Thorbuster codenamed Betty.
It's Tony and Cap saying that's the reason in a jokey scene near the end, comparing how if Thor put the hammer down in an elevator and the elevator went up, that wouldn't make the elevator worthy. Vision picking up the hammer is what makes the Avengers trust him, so I don't think either of them really believes it deep down.
>Hawkeye wanted to spend time with his family.
the dude has two movies where he's not even the showcase and he barely gets a chance to shine and then he just has done? It's just such a shitty way to treat the character.
Just got back from watching it.
Better than the first one, but the cinematography wasn't amazing and the Vision felt kinda aimless and bland. Banner was cool, though.
Ultron was quite underwhelming all in all.
>felt kinda aimless and bland
He needed to be introduced in the late game for obvious reasons and to give the
Mind Gemsubplot a proper unfolding as well. He also contributed to the final fight and was the one who spotted the last remaining Ultron. Although I agree that he might've done more, he could've easily be the one to overcharge the flying engine.
Nigga I'll fight you, his character was spot on.
>He also contributed to the final fight
Well, yeah, but he only made some appearances here and there. What his core powerset actually is isn't explored. Him taking Ultron offline is also kind of downplayed; it gets mentioned and a quick scene, but otherwise he doesn't get focused on.
>What his core powerset actually is isn't explored.
Can you really name some character's powerset that got explained and explorated in the MCU? Except maybe Cap since that was plot for The First Avenger's first half.
We see him phase three times in battle and even do his characteristical "hand through chest" move. I came out of the theater satisfied enough.
