“Avengers: Age of Ultron” pairs action-packed scenes with witty remarks from the world’s mightiest super heroes, making it a tremendously satisfying sequel.

The film, written and directed by Joss Whedon, is perfectly pieced together to highlight the Avengers’ reassembling to save the planet from destruction by villainous Ultron.

Tony Stark/Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) creates a peacekeeping program which in turn fails miserably, causing Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) and the rest of the team to reunite.

The Avengers combat technological ruffian robot Ultron (James Spader) to save Earth from extinction, encountering two peculiar siblings, super fast Pietro (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and the mesmerizing Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen).

The sequel faultlessly pairs intense battles with sharp comments from Stark and other Avengers, keeping the humor alive.

The witty remarks from Iron Man and Captain America kept moviegoers on their toes, filling the theater with laughter even during the darkest scenes.

A light-hearted “Language!” remark from Captain America is a recurring joke after the dialect becomes mature, reminding his teammates to keep it clean.

These comments only remind us that the movie is rated PG-13 due to intense action sequences, violence and destruction and for some suggestive comments.

The enthralling film also spotlights the brewing love story between Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo).

“Age of Ultron” is an effortless package of romance, comedy and action and fun for the entire family.

The cinematography perfectly showcases the powerful fight scenes between the Avengers and Ultron, leaving moviegoers in awe.

The chemistry between actors only elevated the sequel and bettered the plot and entertaining experience.

Overall, “Avengers: Age of Ultron” will satisfy Marvel enthusiasts, only preparing them for what is to come.

The film opens Friday in theaters and is expected to top the $204.7 million opening weekend box office success of the first movie. “Avengers” went on to become one of highest-grossing films of all time, grossing over $1.5 billion worldwide.
