The first half of this film is great but the second half really lets it down. What I am struggling with is whether it is that Age of Ultron is a good but flawed film or that in comparison to Marvels other recent films (Cap 2, Guardians) it just doesn’t match their quality. Ultron was a good villain, if an underused one. The avengers where handled well for the most part, hawk eye was especially well done. I’ll go into more detail below but give it a try, got trailers and images below. Check it all out and give me a like and a comment at the end.

I was extremely critical of Blomkampf after Elysium, and no less so in preparation for this film. However I actually really liked it. He has redeemed himself in part to me anyway. Chappie has a message or two that really work. It’s not about the danger of AI, it’s about how dangerous humanity can be when faced with change. Or how innocence can be corrupted? Its got like five messages floating round. Just pick one and go with it.

I wasn’t quite sure what I was walking into when I watched this film but now I know it’s a film about a lovable rogue and his uptight robot friend. Why hasn’t this been done before, it’s fantastic. Frank Langella did a great job in this role both with the dementia aspect and the acting with a robot for the majority of the time. The story has many aspects to it but the fact that the robot has no good or bad aspects to its involvement is really interesting. The characters are fun and the yuppies are just so asking for it it’s unbelievable. The dialogue and style is sharp and very funny at parts, with some theology mixed in for good measure. The visuals are really good for the most part with pretty impressive predictions for the tech of the future. I want a robot friend.
