Iron Man 3 – DVD review

Shane Black, 2013


Iron Man returns to save the world – not least from the evils of overly earnest and saturnine superheroes. Robert Downey Jr is on cocky, wisecracking form as he suits up for a third time, this time to take on Guy Pearce’s nefarious bionic nerd and Ben Kingsley’s hilariously theatrical Bin Laden 2.0.

All this with only an inexhaustible arsenal of gleefully non-ecofriendly weaponry at his disposal. Longtime Hollywood scribe Shane Black brings an explosive new energy to the franchise. In short, it’s a blast.
