The world is going crazy over Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron and its box office numbers, hidden secrets, credits scene meaning, and more. There are reviews praising it, while others are not so happy with the views brought forth by director Joss Whedon. Well, a 9-year-old child was sent out to review the movie, and adults decided to slam him for it.
The review is extremely truthful and details the opinion of the child in a way that only a 9-year-old could possibly explain. Esquire says the kid is someone who just loves movies and he gave his opinions on Avengers: Age of Ultron.
“If you like movies about robots who make jokes, or movies about girls singing lullabyes to the Hulk, or movies about cities that float into the air for no reason, Age of Ultron will be right up your alley. It was not up my alley.”
Honest from the start.
“The first Avengers was really good. I don’t know what happened with this one. It felt like it was really short but I was happy to get out of the theater. The very first scene is the best scene. A bunch of people in the forest killing each other. Do you know what surprised me the most? Every line had a swear word in it. The first word that they said in the whole movie was the S-H word.”
The kid’s right. There was a lot more cursing and swearing in Avengers: Age of Ultron, even though nothing was over the top. At least, not over the top for adults. The “swearing” bit though, was a running joke.
He liked the scene where Hulk and Iron Man in Hulkbuster armor fought one another. The other scene that was his favorite is where all the Avengers try to pick up Thor’s hammer, but he has issues with Thor overall.
“My point of view is that Thor ruins the Avengers. It doesn’t make sense. If you had Thor, why would you bring Black Widow? Why would you bring Green Arrow [ed. note: he means Hawkeye]? What’s this woman with a gun going to do? Why’s this guy shooting arrows? They have a god with them who cannot die. A guy who is good at shooting arrows or a girl who is good at shooting guns wouldn’t make a particle of difference.”
Luckily, Esquire didn’t reveal the name of the boy or his picture or any personal info about him. That’s a good thing because commenters on the article decided to rip into his opinion and speak to him as if he is an understanding adult.
One commenter wrote.
“premise for this whole article is false–the movie was actually made for me: a middle-aged guy that grew up on comics books, and has enough disposable income to totally geek out and buy the movie, the toys, etc in an effort to re-capture the youth that is quickly disappearing in the rearview mirror. It was made for the geeks that read every blog post about the who’s and why’s, looked at all the production stills and followed the negotiations between Marvel and Fox to allow Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch to appear in both films. It was made of the geeks that watch a less-than-stellar show like Marvel Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. simply because it is part of the MCU. It is made for the geeks that actually know what the MCU stands for. It is made for the geeks that are scared they will have their first heart attack before we finally get to see Thanos on screen for any longer than a fleeting cameo (2019 or 2020).”
“Stand aside 9 year olds, this isn’t your movie. It is mine. And I loved it.”
Another commenter simply believed that the kid was merely a fanboy for DC.
“Here’s your problem – you got a DC Comics 9-year old fan and not a Marvel comics 9 year old fan. Take the kid to see any Batman movie and watch him geek out at insane levels.”
Not every comment made by the grown-ups (?) was negative toward the 9-year-old boy reviewing Avengers: Age of Ultron, but some people were going a little far with things. So, the kid didn’t care much for it and children are usually brutally honest…there’s no need to condemn him for it.
