So Tony Stark is having a little bit of drama with this artificial intelligence he once tried to make called "Ultron", Hawkeye is a little worried that the team can function without him, the Black Widow is starting to be interested in the man with the biggest temper in the world, and two new superheroes - or super villains, I suppose - are around with some crazy kick-ass and should I say swift-ass powers, the perfect description for Kick-Ass star Aaron Taylor Johnson.
There's also a tiny element involving The Avengers not wanted around to save the world. I'm sorry to say that I have to make this review a little short. I went into the theatre expecting to find the brother for the last Avengers movie, one that I loved so much that I thought of it as one of the greatest superhero movies of all time. I haven't seen that movie since and I don't know why, but I remember it didn't have as much drama nor as many problems as this movie. For instance, about twenty-five minutes in, the movie slows down and has a little party up in the Stark building, which is basically just a chance to make fun of how unfit everyone is compared to melon-biceps known as Chris Hemsworth. It was funny but a little pointless. I also found the relationship that Romanoff was having cute, but I didn't want it in a movie that I've been waiting three years for. This isn't supposed to be a drama, it's supposed to be a way Joss Whedon can blow our hearts away - our heartbeats. That's what happens when you get too popular.
With that being said, there was a lot that I liked, and the audience was laughing throughout. There's a new girl who is fierce but thank god! isn't vulnerable. I loved the battle against Iron Man and The Hulk, ending in Whedon's own version of the Twin Tower attacks.
This is one of those times where I kind of hate being a critic. This movie has thumbs up written all over it just like the last instalment. But the main problem is how much it drags with all these different characters and the plot element between Bruce Banner and Natasha Romanoff was sweet but I don't think needed to go on for more than ten minutes. This was also one of the first Marvel movies in a long time to make me yawn a little bit.
