AVENGERS:AGE OF ULTRON REVIEW / RECENSIONE (evaluation/voto: 5/5)



MAIN DATA

Avengers: Age of Ultron is a 2015 American superhero film based on the Marvel Comics superhero team the Avengers, produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures. It is the sequel to 2012’s The Avengers and the eleventh installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). In Avengers: Age of Ultron, the Avengers must work together to defeat Ultron, a technological enemy bent on human extinction.

The sequel was announced in May 2012, after the successful release of The Avengers. Whedon, the director of the first film, was brought back on board in August and a release date was set. By April 2013, Whedon had completed a draft of the script, and casting began in June with the re-signing of Downey. Second unit filming began in February 2014 in South Africa with principal photography taking place between March and August 2014. The film was primarily shot at Shepperton Studios in Surrey, with additional footage filmed in Italy, South Korea, Bangladesh, New York, and various locations around England.

Avengers: Age of Ultron premiered in Los Angeles on April 13, 2015, and is scheduled to be released on May 1, 2015, in North America, in 3D and IMAX 3D. Two sequels, Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 and Avengers: Infinity War Part 2, are scheduled to be released on May 4, 2018, and May 3, 2019, respectively.

SHORT PLOT

When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart 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 an epic and unique global adventure.


REVIEW

“Avengers: Age of Ultron” responds in full to the expectations and the most appropriate adjective to describe it might be, as for all Marvel movies, “fantastic”. As usual Joss Whedon astonishes for the action scenes, but this time he paints his characters with much more humanity.

In fact, the film focuses on their fears and many things never known about Iron Man, Thor, black widow and the others will be unveiled . Hawkeye/Clint Barton has from the outset more importance than in the first “Avengers”.

The comedy is still the hallmark of the Marvel Superheroes. EPIC the joke: “We’re fighting an army of robots, and I have a bow and arrow, none of this makes any sense”

Very strong and very beautiful the “robotic element”. As always, spectacular special effects and a stellar cast. Chief among all Robert Downey Jr. but this time stood also Jeremy Renner.

 It is, of course, a must-see movie (both 3D and 2D).

ALCUNE INFORMAZIONI 

Avengers: Age of Ultron è un film americano del 2015 basato sul team di supereroi Avengers della Marvel Comics, prodotto da Marvel Studios e distribuito dalla Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures. E’ il sequel di The Avengers (film del 2012) e l’undicesimo capitolo della Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). In Avengers: Age of Ultron, i Vendicatori devono lavorare insieme per sconfiggere Ultron, un nemico tecnologico concentrato sull’ estinzione umana.

Il sequel è stato annunciato nel maggio 2012, dopo l’uscita di successo di The Avengers. Entro l’aprile del 2013, Whedon (che era stato anche il regista del primo film) aveva completato una bozza della sceneggiatura, e il casting ha avuto inizio nel mese di giugno con la ri-firma di Downey. Il film è stato girato principalmente a Shepperton Studios di Surrey, e poi anche in Italia, Corea del Sud, Bangladesh, New York, e in varie località vicine all’Inghilterra.

Avengers: Age of Ultron ha debuttato a Los Angeles il 13 aprile 2015. È prevista l’uscita di due sequel, Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 e Avengers: Infinity War Part 2,in uscita rispettivamente il 4 maggio 2018, e 3 maggio 2019.

BREVE TRAMA

Quando Tony Stark cerca di avviare un programma per mantenere la pace, le cose vanno male e i più potenti eroi della Terra, tra cui Iron Man, Capitan America, Thor, Hulk, Vedova Nera e Occhio di Falco, sono messi a dura prova e il destino del pianeta è in bilico.

Nel momento in cui emerge il malvagio Ultron, spetta agli Avengers impedirgli di attuare i suoi terribili piani e presto difficili alleanze e azioni inaspettate prepareranno la strada per un’avventura globale, epica e unica.

RECENSIONE 

Avengers: Age of Ultron risponde in pieno alle aspettative e l’aggettivo più appropriato per descriverlo potrebbe essere, come per tutti i film Marvel,  “fantastico”. Joss Whedon al solito stupisce per le scene d’azione ma questa volta dipinge i suoi personaggi con molta più umanità . 

Il film infatti è incentrato sulle loro paure e si scoprono cose mai sapute su Iron Man, Thor, Vedova Nera e tutti gli altri. Occhio di Falco/ Clint Barton ha fin dall’inizio più importanza rispetto al primo “Avengers”.

La comicità rimane comunque il tratto distintivo dei supereroi Marvel. Epica la battuta: “E’ colpa vostra è colpa di tutti, chi se ne frega. Ce la fai a combattere? Ce la fai? Senti, devo saperlo perché la città sta volando, affrontiamo un esercito di robot e io ho un arco e delle frecce, nulla di tutto questo ha senso.”

 Molto forte e molto bello l’”elemento robotico”. Effetti speciali, come sempre, spettacolari, cast stellare, primo fra tutti Robert Downey Jr. ma questa volta si è distinto molto anche Jeremy Renner.

Film assolutamente da vedere (sia in 3D che in 2D)
