Shane Black’s IRON MAN THREE is the first great Iron Man movie and one of the best from Marvel. Marvel Studios’ movies have been criticized for being bland, but IM3 is totally Shane Black movie from the first second. Unmistakable.
- RDJ gives his best as Stark.
- Rebecca Hall looked really, really good.
- 1999 Happy is the best Happy.
- Finally some good action in an IRON MAN movie.
Just made me more excited for Marvel’s Phase 2. If Black’s vision/personality could shine through, I can’t wait to see what Alan Taylor (THOR: THE DARK WORLD), the Russo Brothers (CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER), James Gunn (GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY), and Edgar Wright (ANT-MAN) bring to the franchise.
The only thing I didn’t like was the cinematography. It looked kinda shitty. John Toll, dude, you shot THE THIN RED LINE! Wtffff.
