I just woke up from a frightening nightmare. I dreamed everyone in the Motion Picture Academy is 18 years old, and they just awarded the Oscar for best picture to.

“Avengers: Age of Ultron”.

Quickly returning to reality, “Avengers’ not bad as superhero extravaganza’s go, but it’s hardly Oscar material.

What really bothers the Hulk as he grunts his way through his every scene, he resents sharing screen time with so many other superheroes in this overstuffed comic book epic.

At least Robert Downey Jr. knows enough to play it tongue in cheek.

As a movie of mass destruction, this Avengers episode is bound to click with easy to please audiences of a certain age. It’s so predictable with Its tiresome scenes of devastation occurring like clockwork at too many regular intervals.

Oh yes, Ultron’s out to destroy their universe, but we should be so lucky.

“Thor” Chris Hemsworth delivers his typically mechanical performance and Chris Evans’ Captain America sizes up the Avengers biggest problem when he observes “The Avengers was supposed to be different this year.

So how come this latest superhero adventure manages to look so much like the first installment?

Thanks to Robert Downey Junior’s light touch, “Avengers: Age of Ultron” isn’t exactly a clunker, but the airborne heroes never rise above 2 stars.

I go back to what Captain America concluded…”Avengers” was supposed to be different this year, but obviously It’s not.
