The Avengers: The Age of Ultron (2015)

Once again, this is a movie that is not so much one that should be judged on its own merits, because no one who is watching it should watch this one first.  Go to the beginning.  See the first one.  If you don't care for that, the sequels will not get better.  I am not sure that is 100% right, but I think that if you really don't like something, then it is unlikely that the sequel will seduce you, even if it is modestly better than the original.
That said, we have been watching sequels as a family--I would not have watched this on my own, but I do enjoy a family movie night on a regular basis, and this is the sort of light fare that satisfies everyone.
All of the Avengers fight the forces of evil (in this case Ultron) and while things do not go altogether smoothly, they ultimately triumph, leaving a hint as to what the next film will cover.  We all got exactly what we expected from the movie.
