Review: We dared to hope, and finally, our hopes were not dashed to wailing bits on the rocks of despair, emptiness, and horrible dialogue. Downey nails the role of Stark like the daunting awesomeness of his Jericho missile. They don’t skimp on the action either, as we get everything from shoulder mounted selective fire headshots, to a good old fashioned robotic uppercut which connects with a most satisfying metallic clunk. I chortled with glee through most of this, if that tells you anything.
Time: 23 seconds
