Walt Disney Pictures and Universal Studios released their new super hero/action flick, “Avengers 2: Age Of Ultron” into theaters today, May 1st, and all the reviews are in from the top critics in the biz. It turns out that most of them did like it, awarding it an overall 67 score out of a possible 100 at Metacritic.com.

The movie stars: Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Samuel L. Jackson, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, James Spader, Cobie Smulders, Thomas Kretschmann, and Paul Bettany. We’ve added blurbs from a few of the critics,below.

Richard Roeper from the Chicago Sun-Times, gave it a great 88 score. He said: “Avengers: Age of Ultron is a sometimes daffy, occasionally baffling, surprisingly touching and even romantic adventure with one kinetic thrill after another. It earns a place of high ranking in the Marvel Universe.”

Peter Travers from Rolling Stone, gave it a 88 grade too, saying: “A whole summer of fireworks packed into one movie. It doesn’t just go to 11, it starts there.”

Joe Neumaier over at the New York Daily News, gave it a 80 score, stating: “Avengers: Age of Ultron is a kinetic, wicked mix of muscle and magic. Look no further if you want a world of superpowered freaks and geeks. But be aware: It comes at a cost. Vaporized in the parade of action and characters is the wonder and simplicity of its first, superior entry.”

Scott Foundas from Variety, gave it an 80 grade. He stated: “The new movie is a sleeker, faster, funnier piece of work — the sort of sequel (like “Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan,” “Superman II” and “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom” before it) that shrugs off the self-seriousness of its predecessor and fully embraces its inner Saturday-morning serial.”

Matt Zoller Seltz from RogerEbert.com, gave it a 75 score, saying: “In its lumpy-porridge way, this film makes a better case than any other Marvel picture for the notion that quarter-billion-dollar-budgeted, CGI-festooned slabs of multimedia synergy can be art, too, provided they’re made by an artist with a vision, and said artist appears to be in control of at least part of the production.”

Alonso Diralde from TheWrap, gave it a 75 grade. He said: “It may well be that we’ll eventually stop looking at these Marvel films as discrete, individual experiences rather than chapters in an epic binge-watch, but even by those standards, Avengers: Age of Ultron feels like a solid but overstuffed episode, one more concerned with being connective tissue than anything else.”

Chris Nashawaty from Entertainment Weekly, gave it a 67 score. He said: “Still, my real beef with these movies — and this one in particular — is how same-y they’ve started to feel. Each time out, everything is at stake and nothing is at stake.”

Ty Burr over at the Boston Globe, gave it a 63, saying: “Ultron’s goals never make much sense beyond the basic kill-the-Avengers-and-destroy-the-Earth checklist, nor does he develop as a character over the long haul. He’s just a static baddie, fun to look at and handy with a quip but ultimately as dull as unpolished chrome.”

Michael Phillips from the Chicago Tribune, gave it a 63 score, saying: “Entertaining as much of Avengers 2 is, especially when it’s just hanging out with the gang in between scuffles (the “Guardians of the Galaxy” lesson, learned), Whedon’s picture meets expectations without exceeding them.”

Claudia Puig at USA Today, awarded it a 63 grade, stating: “Director Joss Whedon knows how to make a wryly funny, action-packed extravaganza, as he proved with 2012’s “The Avengers.” So why did he overstuff the 2½-hour sequel?”

John Anderson from the Wall Street Journal, gave it a 60 score. He said: “For those more concerned with what “The Avengers” movies do best — outsize spectacle and wry comedy — Age of Ultron has to be declared a victory.”

Manohla Dargis at the The New York Times, gave it a 60 grade, stating: “For a Marvel agnostic like me, the single most interesting thing about Age of Ultron is that you can sense that Mr. Whedon, having helped build a universal earnings machine with the first “Avengers,” has now struggled mightily, touchingly, to invest this behemoth with some life.”

Kenneth Turan from the Los Angeles Times, gave it a 60 score, saying: “The uncomfortable reality remains that although this movie is effective moment to moment, very little of it lingers in the mind afterward. The ideal vehicle for our age of immediate sensation and instant gratification, it disappears without a trace almost as soon as it’s consumed.”

Todd McCarthy at The Hollywood Reporter, gave it a 60 score as well, stating: “Avengers: Age of Ultron succeeds in the top priority of creating a worthy opponent for its superheroes and giving the latter a few new things to do, but this time the action scenes don’t always measure up and some of the characters are left in a kind of dramatic no-man’s-land.”

Kyle Smith at the New York Post, gave it a 50 grade. He said: “Whedon keeps approaching ideas, but every time he does so he leaves a flaming bag of dog poop on the doorstep, rings the bell and runs away tittering.”

Lastly, Mick LaSalle from the San Francisco Chronicle, scored it a very negative 25 grade, claiming: “Supercharged and lifeless, frenetic and stone-cold dead, a barrage of action scenes that look fake, yet make you wonder if fake is the new real.” Stay tuned.
