Mother always said if you don’t have something nice about someone/something then don’t say anything. I didn’t always listen to mother and in this case I have some things to say.

Our choice of movie going this Friday was “Avengers”, “Avengers” or “Avengers” and if I don’t go to a movie on Friday the world may shut down so I decided to go see “Avengers: Age of Ultron” with an open mind and though I meant well it didn’t turn out that way. When you watch a movie that is 2 hours and twenty-two minutes long with 2 hours of special effects and twenty minutes of a love story unless the reason you came was for the former then it was a waste of your time. The first time you see a special effect it can deliver but after the same effect is shown for the tenth time it is loud and boring as most of the effects and computer work is in this film. A perfect example is watching the first time Elizabeth Olsen, as Scarlet Witch, throws a psychic fireball until she throws so many you just want the next scene to come.

With the movie directed and written by Joss Whedon the only relief you get from noise is when he concentrates on a romance between Mark Ruffalo as the Hulk and Scarlet Johansson as the Black Widow or when he is showing the home life of Hawkeye, played by Jeremy Renner and his wife played by Linda Cardellini. Hopefully Chris Evans who plays Captain America, Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Quicksilver, Olsen’s twin, will follow the leads of Johnansson, Ruffalo and Iron Man, Robert Downey, Jr., and use their avenger money to make and/or direct independent films.

People who go to see “Avengers: Age of Ultron” and will make it a record breaker, are fans of Marvel comics, comic books, loud special effects with accompanying loud music, shattering glass mindless chases and fights.

I did give the movie a chance but if next time there is a choice of another Avenger’s sequel or one of the many similar looking previews of summer ‘blockbusters’ or not going to a movie on a Friday then I will pick the last choice.
