Film review: Is Avengers Age of Ultron Marvel-ous?

There is an abundance of good jokes in Avengers: Age of Ultron, but the best of them is in the dynamic opening action sequence. Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr), Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) and the rest are hurtling through a forest on their way to the hilltop stronghold of an evil secret society, Hydra. Taking turns to showcase each of their signature abilities, they lay waste to hordes of uniformed baddies, but Hydra’s monocled commander, Baron Strucker (Thomas Kretschmann), rallies his troops with a cry of, “Never surrender!” A second later, he turns to his right-hand man and mutters, “I’m going to surrender.”
