Watch: Everything Wrong with Avengers: Age of Ultron... And There's a Lot
Avengers: Age of Ultron was entertaining enough, but coming after the first Avengers, it was a disappointment, and committed many cinematic sins. 166 sins, to be exact, at least according to the latest installment of "Everything Wrong With..."



As usual, Cinema Sins delves into nitpicking for a lot of the video, but they also touch on many substantive problems with Age of Ultron. First, I think even diehard Marvel fans would admit that there was a little too much advertising for the future of the MCU, especially during the extremely out-of-place Thor vision sequence. "Now for some visions of the future. There was a time when these were called previews, and they came before the movie, not during."

And then there's Scarlet Witch. Aside from the terrible accents, Scarlet Witch is generally a problematic character because she's just too powerful. She's practically omnipotent, which means she could have just killed all of the Avengers in the first five minutes of the movie. And now that they have her on their side, they really don't need anyone else. (Incidentally, that's why it's silly for people to say that the Civil War teams are definitely mismatched in Iron Man's favor. If Captain America gets Scarlet Witch, which he probably will, then his team will certainly have the upper hand.)

And finally, there's all of the innocent people who died in that blatant fan service Hulk vs Hulkbuster fight. "Were they trying to out-Transformers 3 Man of Steel?" 

Avengers: Age of Ultron is now out on DVD and Blu-ray.
