Summary: Perhaps the worst movie I've ever seen. Bring back Jan Favreau (director of IM 1 & 2). Shane Black just doesn't really get Iron Man - the character not the idea. Ran over all the nuances of him and Pepper with a dump truck. One long boring and cliched run of stunts and copy cat bits from every other 'terminator' kind of movie you can think of.
Excerpt: Boy, have the comic-book super hero's made a run...bringing great source material for many successful films, to the big screen. Starting with "Superman" played by Christopher Reeves. Reigning supreme for almost 11 years, until the long awaited emergence of "Batman" starring Michael Keaton as the 'Caped Crusader.' Leading us down this well known road of making some very good films when the super-hero formula of source material, writer.
Summary: As with all the Iron Man films, this has a good storyline, lots of action and good one liners. It is again overly long and I would have given it half a star more had it been shorter. If you like the other Iron Man films, this won't dissapoint.
Summary: If you want action pretty much from the word go and you like stunning computer graphics coming out of your ears, this is a good follow up. I enjoyed it and I think what helps are the elements of humour than Downey injects. Noisy both aurally and visually, if you're a fan of his you should enjoy.
Summary: Although I put it on my high priority list with iron man 2 as I hadn't seen that one, and got sent iron man 3 first!! I cant wait to see iron man 2 though. highly recommend watching it! such an awesome film!!
