|Rated: PG-13 for intense action violence|
Starring: Justin Gross, Grey DeLisle, and Michael Massee
Released: August 8, 2006
Based on Marvel's The Ultimates.
My Review (Warning: Spoilers!): Can a sequel be better than the original? Maybe sometimes, but, not in this case. Most of this movie is on par with the previous outing; same great animation, same amazing action sequences, same voice actors, most of the same content concerns. It almost feels like the next episode of a television show, which is funny when you realize how much this film and its prequel have in common with Disney XD's The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes cartoon. However, I found the ending a bit depressing; though the heroes triumph, Giant-Man is killed. That, to me, was an unnecessary plot point. Other than that, I enjoyed it.
- Sex: Kissing. 4/5
- Nudity: Bare midriffs, shirtless guys, and cleavage, the latter of which is made rather sultry at times. 3/5
- Language: None. 5/5
- Violence: The movie starts with the leader of an African country being killed, which is a bit bloody. Other scenes feature the heroes, other humans, and the aliens punching, kicking, shooting at, etc., each other quite frequently. Blood is seen in a few of these sequences, as well. The film ends with the death of one of the heroes. 2/5
- Drugs: Wine is consumed. 4/5
- Frightening/Intense Scenes: Along with the violence mentioned above, the aliens are rather scary looking, and there is quite a bit of emotional intensity, especially after the two characters die. 1/5
