The cast of the DG Podcast, Rhett, Jason, and Lindsay, just got back from watching the Avengers: Age of Ultron. So, we are going to talk about our impressions and get very specific about the story, the characters, and the scenes. That said, stop listening if you’re sensitive about spoilers, we don’t hold much back.
What can I say so that I don’t tell you everything, but intrigue you enough to listen to our comments. I guess that I can tell you what you’ll find just about anywhere. The Avengers, made up of Captain America, Black Widow, Ironman, Thor, and the Hulk, are doing their job destroying Hydra. In the course of their operations civilians are put into jeopardy and they discover two new superpowered individuals: Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch. In order to protect the civilians, Tony Stark has designed autonomous Ironman replicas, but his ultimate goal is to design autonomous units with artificial intelligence so that the Avengers become obsolete. In the pursuit of this goal he inadvertently creates Ultron. Ultron then decides that he needs to destroy humanity and uses Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch to do so. Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch then join the Avengers when they discover just what Ultron intends to do to mankind. Ultron also creates the Vision as part of his ultimate upgrade, but is unable to upload himself into the body. The Avengers manage to steal the body from Ultron and in trying to upload a new AI, create the Vision who then helps them defeat Ultron.
So, what did we think of the Avengers: Age of Ultron? Did we like the movie? What did we think of the inclusion of Quicksilver, the Scarlet Witch, Ultron, and Vision? Did the story make sense? What worked well? What didn’t work? Would we watch the movie again? Was the movie true to the comics, at least in spirit? Did the actors do justice to the heroes they portrayed? What about the special effects? Did they add to the movie or detract? We answer all these questions and probably some you didn’t think about in the podcast.
