FILM REVIEW: IRON MAN SAVES THE DAY, AGAIN....AGAIN.

Iron Man Three (2013)
3/5 

Well, it’s not as bad as the second one.
If you care enough about Iron Man to not want to hear spoilers, then you’ve seen the movie already. If you haven’t seen it yet, be prepared for the fact Pepper Potts spends near as much time in the suit as Tony. In fact everyone seems to get a go in the suit except Tony.
If you’re an old school “60 cents at the dairy” fan like me, then chances are you may find ‘the twist’ somewhat of a pisser. 
The ever-present hats-off patriotism that weaves through the movie felt like yankee doodle narcissism to me. This Marvel universe seems more about exploiting demographics than daring exploits.
For all the hurrah about director Shane Black’s artistic nous, as the credits roll I feel all we’ve been given is another all-American feel good flick, where Islamic jihadists are drug addled old fools and super heroes love the president. 

Buy (into) American.
