Ultimate Avengers 2 (2006)

The Chitauri are back and they come attacking a village named Wakanda. The King of Wakanda protects the village with his powers, but fails and dies. His son T'Challa, becoming King, has the powers passed onto him and becomes the Black Panther.

The Black Panther goes to tell Captain America when he discovers the Chitauri is a common enemy. This prompts General Nick Fury of S.H.I.E.L.D. to gather the Avengers together and have them investigate. After arriving, the Avengers almost get killed by the Wakandan soldiers and withdraw.

Meanwhile, Bruce Banner (the Hulk) is kept in a cell where he is interrogated and bullied by a Dr. Oiler. Thor, also away, has a vision of the Avengers lying dead on a battlefield. Initially seeking his father Odin's advice, Thor decides to help the humans, even though his father tells him otherwise.

Getting back to the Wakanda village, Captain America leaves the S.H.I.E.L.D. aircraft and brings a Chitauri alien back to interrogate. However, he's been tricked and places his fellow team members in danger.

Simultaneously, the Chitauri army begin attacking the world. At this point, the Blank Panther decides to seek Fury's help and tells him the truth about the Wakandan's ability to survive against alien attacks over the centuries.

I can say that I liked this movie better than the last. Perhaps I had grown accustom to the art style.

It would have been nice if the characters looked more like the way they are drawn during the end credits, with a bit more comic flair. It's possible, however, that a more adult looking art style would have required more attention to detail, and perhaps cost more money.


Instant Comments:
While the animation mostly looks the same, I seem to like this movie a bit better than the last. Perhaps the animation is just slightly sharper.
"Spears? I'm afraid you'll have to do better than that." Spear breaks his gun. "Or not." Swing comes down on him. "Well that's embarrassing."
Maybe this movie is thematically darker.

Black Panther.
