Avengers: Age of Ultron is an even better team-up movie than the first Avengers, filled with compelling new characters, compelling old characters, awesome action, a deeper story, and a strong cast.

All of the main heroes from the first Avengers movie return for this sequel, along with several new supporting players: Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch/Wanda Maximoff, Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Quicksilver/Pietro Maximoff, and Paul Bettany, who played the voice of JARVIS in past MCU entries, makes his full-pledged MCU debut as the Vision. Other actors appearing from previous MCU entries include Idris Elba as Heimdall and Hayley Atwell as Peggy Carter.

Age of Ultron has something of a mixed reception among MCU fans, with some ranking it as among the weaker entries in the franchise. I don’t know why they feel that way, because I certainly enjoyed it. From what I gather, the criticisms boil down to 2 main things: the villain is lousy, and it focuses too much on setting up future MCU movies. I don’t think that most moviegoers would necessarily level those complaints, but still I feel the need to counter.

James Spader arrives to the MCU playing Ultron, and his performance is really quite excellent. His voice acting and mannerisms make Ultron a unique foe in that he doesn’t try to go all “I am mystical and ancient, hear me roar.” He’s a pretty straight-speaking individual, if you know what I mean. A complaint I’ve heard about Ultron is that he’s too jokey. First off, I feel the need to remind comics fans that the MCU’s version of Ultron is created by Tony Stark, not Hank Pym. With that in mind, it makes sense that he has elements of Tony’s jokey, arrogant personality. His sarcastic demeanor never really bothered me, and it still doesn’t. All in all, Ultron is a worthy foe for the Avengers, and I hope to see him at least once more down the road.

As for the “setting up movies” part, a few reminders: general audiences, most of whom don’t read the comics, don’t really know the bigger teases the movie dishes out. Ulysses Klaue appears in this movie, and he’s an enemy of Black Panther. In this movie he’s an arms dealer who specializes in Vibranium. With that in mind, comics readers hear “Black Panther setup,” general audiences hear “arms dealer.” Same with the teases for Thor: Ragnarok and Infinity War. Point being, if there are any issues with Age of Ultron, I don’t think movie buildup is one of them.

Now that those are out of the way, this movie is among my favorites in the MCU. One of the best things it does is deepen the relationships between characters. We see Tony’s PTSD from Iron Man 3 come back to haunt him, and his companionship with Steve begins to form some major cracks. Meanwhile, Bruce is struggling more than ever with sharing his body with the Hulk, all while dealing with a new romantic interest in Natasha. The Bruce/Natasha pairing is an interesting one, as they are the two Avengers members with the most damage; Banner with his “anger issues,” Romanoff with her Russian assassin past. Everybody else is more or less stable with their past trauma, but Banner and Romanoff identify with each other in ways that they can’t with Steve or Tony.

I really like how the movie gives Hawkeye a bigger role than in the last one. Hawkeye is the person who has found the most balance between his professional and personal lives, and it’s good to see Clint’s character deepen, even as he takes on a mentorship role to the Maximoff twins. Olsen’s Scarlet Witch is an interesting character to watch, and her psychic (?) abilities make for some of the movie’s most memorable sequences. Quicksilver makes for a fun character too, and I enjoy how his super-speed is utilized here.

An area where this movie really shines is in its action sequences. I’ve said this about past MCU entries, but the CGI is taken to even greater levels of outstanding here. The Hulk looks more realistic than ever, all the Ultron robots are great to look at, and the Hulkbuster/Hulk showdown is one of my favorite fight scenes in the MCU.

I very much recommend this movie.
