PREVIEW REVIEW: Marvelís Avengers: Age of Ultron is expensive looking, action-packed, contains some funny lines, and good eventually triumphs. So, for those who love the superhero genre, be ye 14 or one of those guys who goes to Star Trek conventions, it should satisfy. For those of us who prefer dramas or social satires, or anything where the lead characters don't wear capes, Marvelís Avengers: Age of Ultron is too loud, too violent and too long.
