PEOPLE MAKE THIS SOUND LIKE A HORROR FILM!!!! This is such a good movie!!! There is a decent amount of violence though, but is is ROBOTS for Pete's sake!! Your kids will not pick anything up except good role models like Captain America.

Avengers: Age of Ultron

Marvel Excellence 9.7/10. Some language: "s--t," "piss me off," "hell," "ass," "son of a bitch," "damn," and "bastard." One use of "dick move."

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (51):
Kids say (194):

Blessed with a star-studded cast, this sequel makes sure that each of the bold-faced names gets his or her moment in the sun, resulting in a film that's sure to satisfy Marvel fanatics. And director Joss Whedon makes sure the action is as big as its stars: Androids do battle in breathtaking scenes, worlds literally fall apart, and superheroes rescue and do good from one breathless moment to the next. The dialogue moves pretty quickly, too, inflected with humor.

But this many important characters makes for a crowded movie, with little time to allow a complicated storyline actual room to unfurl. The plot feels secondary in Avengers: Age of Ultron, with the film mostly just careening from one battle scene to the next. There's little sense of real storytelling, mostly grandstanding. Still, there's definitely enough here to please fans of the movies and the original comic books.
