How could a mish-mash of mediocre movies come out good?
(pick one) sucked and was ridiculous. That a man could turn into a 3 story being dense enough to lift a finger was preposterous and the scripts sucked...never mind leaping over MOUNTAINS.......
The second IRON MAN
lost me after the first 10 minutes, have tried twice with no success to go back and choke it down.
Recipe for disaster? throw in a little Scarlet Johansen in a TIGHT black outfit, and Samuel L Jackson attaining his usual Bad Assery. Stil not convinced?
Really, the Key to making this movie awesome, was taking a little of the BEST of all of the characters, and mixing in a HEALTHY dose of very clever humor.
Epic? Hardly, but so
much better than any of the aforementioned movies.
After a good start, mostly centering about Scarlet Johansen and her super powers of.....um....asking questions and stuff.....,our first real combat scene involves Captain America being a little out matched by Loki.
Suddenly ACDC is dropping the effing hammer, and you begin to hope....could it be? Are they doing the simple thing and getting it RIGHT??????
Enter IRON MAN in all the splendor of what they got right in the first IRON MAN with a little more selflessness and heroic mentality.
If you are like me and loved the first Iron Man, but hated the second one......prepare to have your fist involuntarilly raised with the first and fourth fingers pointing towards Odin.
