Captain America calls for saving civilians somewhere amidst the chaos and the dialogue almost sounds ridiculous amidst the rubble, metaphorically the rubble of good script writing which is just not needed to create blockbuster movies anymore. Who wants a solid plot and an intricate treatment when you get colossal robots battling superheroes flying across cities like they were nothing but a house of cards. A good story is probably not in vogue anymore. Audiences are found cheering more for good VFX. Joss Whedon, the director is smart, for he understands his target audiience. They understand stunning visual effects, breathtaking stunts, neatly designed robots with great powers, superheroes with greater powers, some cheesy lines, some human drama almost forcibly injected and a mix of super-forces we have seen elsewhere, some in Transformers, some in X-Men, some in Thor and Avengers itself. It's just the modern day entertainment. 


In The Avengers: Age of Ultron, Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) in collusion with Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) explores the power of Loki's specter and a dormant program they discover in one of the Avenger expeditions to reclaim the specter. Stark brings to life a powerful program or AI that has its own philosophy which apart from driving away Jarvis, our beloved voice, takes over the internet and evolves, believing that the evolution of the world starts first from its annihilation. For no specific reason, the Ultron picks upon the Avengers as its enemies, giving away lines like 'humans create what they are afraid of, like children'. Originally assisted by the Maximoff twins, the Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and the ultra-fast Quicksilver, Ultron voiced wonderfully by James Spander sets himself free, claiming how he has no strings attached. He sets off to integrate the power of one of the Infinity Stones with his tissue, recreating the ultimate machine. However, upon reading his mind, the Scarlet Witch sees destruction and switches sides to help the Avengers. 


There are many levels at which this Avengers sequel succeeds nd many at which it fails, depending on the kind of audience one is talking about. The makers have clearly cashed in on the audience' liking for Iron Man creating more prototypes in that fashion, the army of bots offering the superheroes some cool challenges to overcome. Everyone from Black Widow to Hawkeye (whose family life has been revealed) and even Nick Fury, appearing dramatically out of nowhere, have some cool lines and some cool stuff to strut about. But the Hulk's rage gets some classic treatment, mellowed a little by what seemed like a discordant love plot between him and Black Widow (Scarlet Johansson). Stark sets out to undo his wrong not by repeating his mistake but by aiming yet again to create a powerful, peace keeping program in the mirror image of Jarvis but with much greater power, a future Avenger that is more benevolent than Ultron and 'worthier' like shown by the cool manner in which it lifts Thor's hammer.


The sequel doesn't have a dull limit as VFX takes over completely, human beings and their cities treated as nothing more than dummies surrounded by iron, steel and glass that could be blown over at the will of the superheroes or the antagonists of those super heroes. The journey from Avengers to Avengers: Age of Ultron is almost the morphing of rock music into pop because it just fits the bill for a lot more people. While there has been some wit sprinkled along the way, it is not a match for Avengers' dialogues. At 2 hours 25 minutes, the movie becomes a prolonged VFX spectacle with the wafered layers of plot-lines blurring out leaving just explosions and some super-hero quirks for the audience to remember. A special round of applause is due really for the art direction and visual effects supervisors, without which the movie is just fluff!
