Trivia

In one scene, Tony Stark is using an SxS Card Reader to upload data. SxS Cards are used by the Alexa camera system, which was used to capture this movie. See more »

Goofs

Dropping a lump of rock the size of a small city from a great height (even when assisted by the thrusters that were used to raise it up) would not nearly have as big an impact as that of a meteor from outer space. Meteors get their high energy on impact from their high speed (usually around 17 km/s). A lump of rock dropped from 20,000 feet and assisted by thrusters would not go faster than about 0.5 km/s. The energy of the impact would be 1100 times less than that of a meteor of the same mass. See more »

Disappointed because the name set up expectations
20 January 2016 | by (Israel) – See all my reviews

I tend to enjoy the Marvel movies and animated movies / TV series when I can catch them. Unfortunately I caught Next Avengers: Heroes of Tomorrow on TV once, and that, coupled with the name Age of Ultron, led me to expect something like that animated movie or Days of Future Past: that Ultron takes over and there's a desperate struggle to overthrow him. One early trailer I saw also seemed to enforce such an impression.

Unfortunately Ultron turned out to be a rather impotent villain. He's full of potential danger, but doesn't manage to realise any of that potential. The trailers made the movie look like the threat is a lot bigger than it was. Pretty much every danger in this movie is short term and thwarted without too much problem. I kept waiting for something truly dramatic to happen, but it never did. There's no Age of Ultron in this movie, not even a glimpse of it, and for me that was disappointing enough that I didn't enjoy the movie much.

There's decent action, drama and humour, it's not a badly made movie, but the villain is weak, and even the ultimate danger, the death of the human race, is less dramatic than potential subjugation, which is what most villains go for.
