Iron Man 3

by Giovanni Fazio

Director: Shane Black

Language: English

I’ll take my Robert Downey Jr. however it’s served, and if it comes in a can, well, so be it. This third installment in what seems like one of a gazillion Marvel franchises doubles down on everything: This should really be called “Iron Men.” Plenty of metal on metal ass-kickings, but director Shane Black — who scripted the “Lethal Weapon” flicks — sets the controls for laughs, and Downey coasts on more sassy one-liners than he got in the first two films combined. A popcorn flick par excellence.
