May 2015 Action Adventure Movies


Avengers: Age of Ultron

Release Date: May 1, 2015

Cast: Robert Downey Dr., Mark Ruffalo, James Spader, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johannson, Jeremy Renner, Aaron-Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Bettany, Cobie Smulders

Director: Joss Whedon

Tony Stark creates artificial intelligence as part of a peacekeeping program, but it views the only way to bring peace is to wipe out humans. Oops!

My Take: Besides Iron Man, all the other stand alone Marvel movies were decent, but not as good as the first Avengers. Since Joss Whedon is behind this one again, I hope it is as good.



Mad Max: Fury Road

Release Date: May 15, 2015

Cast: Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, Hugh Keays-Byrne, Nathan Jones, Zoë Kravitz, Riley Keough, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Abbey Lee, Courtney Eaton

Director: George Miller

Max is out in the desert fighting bad guys while driving really fast. Is this a continuation of the old Mad Max movies or a reboot? The filmmaker won’t say.

My Take: I don’t even care about the plot or if it even has one. It looks fantastic. I can’t wait to watch it on the big screen.



Release Date: May 22, 2015

Cast: George Clooney, Britt Robertson, Hugh Laurie, Raffey Cassidy, Tim McGraw, Judy Greer, Kathryn Hahn, Keegan Michael-Key, Thomas Robinson

Director: Brad Bird

A teenage girl touches a pin and is transported to some other time and place in the future. She tracks it down to a guy who shows her what that place is really all about.

My Take: Great director, writers and cast. It looks super fun.


Slow West

Release Date: May 15, 2015

Cast: Michael Fassbender, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Ben Mendelsohn, Caren Pistorius

Director: John Maclean

A Scottish boy heads to America in 1870 to find a girl he loves that has gone into hiding because of something he did. He befriends Michael Fassbender’s bounty hunter on the way.

My Take: It looks violent and funny. It also has Michael Fassbender in it!


San Andreas

Release Date: May 29, 2015

Cast: Dwayne Johnson, Carla Gugino, Alexandra Daddario, Ioan Gruffudd, Archie Panjabi, Hugo Johnstone-Burt, Art Parkinson, Paul Giamatti

Director: Brad Peyton

Earthquake disaster movie.

Even though I love action movies, these kind bore me. Also, that stupid slowed down version of “California Dreamin'” is highly annoying.
