Dir.: Shane Black
Starring: Robert Downey Jr. (duh), Gwenyth Paltrow, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, Ben Kingsley and Jon Faverau
An iron skin conceals a tender, vulnerable heart and Iron Man 3 peels back the mighty shell of Tony Starks’ alter ego to show you the soft, gooey, frightened center. Without a doubt the more complex and dramatically fulfilling of the Iron Man stories thus far but still bursting with spark and pizzazz, Shane Blacks’ stamp is all over this one and it’s not merely red and gold but platinum in intent and result by striking a happy medium between the great and small. This is Tony Stark and he is rebuilding from the ground up into something more and he realises he isn’t an island but part of a whole.
Oh and TREVOR. TrevorTrevorTrevor.
