Best and Worst of ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’

The much, much, much-anticipated mega-sequel “Avengers: Age of Ultron” is finally in theaters worldwide. Now comes the time to assess whether the Marvel blockbuster lived up to the hype, whether this movie”s any good.

HitFix”s Drew McWeeny gave “Age of Ultron” a mostly favorable B+ review. Here, we break down the movie into its best and worst moments. Among the best: Some time for Natasha Romanoff and Clint Barton to shine, as we learn more about the secret lives and inner turmoil of the Avengers played by Scarlett Johansson and Jeremy Renner. Among the worst: the third act battle scene that feels too much like the New York City finale of 2012's “The Avengers.”

How did the return of Captain America, Hulk and Iron Man stack up? What about new players Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch? Is the villain, Ultron, a decidedly uninteresting baddie like most Marvel villains or does he raise the bar? Check out the gallery below for answers to these questions and more bests and worsts of “Age of Ultron.”
