Go see this movie. Twice. They fuck up the ending...you'll see why when you see (no spoilers, assholes!) but the kids loved it, the wife and I adored it, enough to go back in while we were asking for a refund on our tickets because of a power blackout. Some idiot got up close and personal with a power pole, and everything but the emergencies died.
They promised us they'd run it back for us, and they did, and we were happy. Earns every inch of its PG-13 rating, and then some, but the kids never freaked.
What a damn good movie. Summer Blockbuster, indeed. Worth seeing at least twice. Great family flick, great date movie. I would like to grow extra thumbs to put them up for this movie.
The flaws are far outweighed by the perfection, but hey, it is always a great piece of ass right up til she pitches an epileptic fit, right? But then they give you the Metal anthem of all time, Iron Man, and you forgive them, and actually sit through the credits.
Go see this movie, please. I want them to make more. I have always enjoyed Downey, but he has reached his pinnacle, here. And the Tony Stark character is exactly who I would be, in his situation. Scary. I got a couple of good shoulder punchins from the wife when she heard my voice from the screen. Really a bizarre juxtaposition.
Go. See it. And I let out many more than one guffaw. Belly laughing guffaws. And watch yourselves in the comments. You just know some asshole is going to earn oblivion by mouthing off about critical bits. So just go see it. Trust me. Then come back and comment.
