The story goes like this: When Tony Stark tries to jump-start a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth's Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, the Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance. As the villainous Ultron emerges, it is up to the Avengers to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for a global adventure.

Avengers: Age of Ultron is of action, adventure and sci-fi genre, which runs for approximately 141 minutes. It's rated PG-13 for intense sequences of sci-fi action, violence and destruction, and for some suggestive comments. As mentioned, the movie has received generally favorable reviews from critics. In my opinion, the film, for most of its parts, was boring and dragging. While the fighting scenes were entertaining, they lacked oomph. Moreover, there were so many scenes happening at the same time that you tend to lose focus. It's probably because the movie had a lot of main characters. Most of the actors were good like Robert Downey Jr (Iron Man) and Chris Hemsworth (Thor) but I wasn't convinced with the acting of some like Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Quicksilver). There was heavy usage of CGI but for some reason it was not up to par with other Marvel movies. Some of the graphics used looked downright fake. While the movie was entertaining as a whole, I felt that many scenes lacked cohesion and there were a lot of dull moments. The film is available in 2D, 3D and IMAX.

RATING: 3.5 out of 5 STARS
