“Iron Man” fans will be happy to know that Robert Downey Junior makes it through the second sequel without a trace of rust.
The shiny new adventure captures the combination of Tony Stark’s snappy repartee along with lots of imaginative high playing excitement. “Iron Man’s” got a new nemesis and of course Downey challenges him in style.
“Iron Man’s” resourceful derring do knows no bounds in what easily could have been the original, instead of the third in the series when the franchise usually starts going downhill.
The always gracious billionaire playboy would never allow planning to save the world, interfere with giving adoring young fans his autograph.
But dazzling the crowd with super spectacular visual effects take top priority. This is what being a top flight summer season popcorn adventure is really all about. All with a sly sense of humor.
And It doesn’t hurt having Robert Downey Junior playing the most charming, charismatic and animated of all the Marvel comics super heroes in or out of costume.
No, “Iron Man 3″ isn’t quite ready for the scrapheap yet with 3 stars.
I’ll let you in on a secret. “Iron Man” is my kind of super hero.
