MOVIE REVIEW: IRON MAN 3 (Shane Black, 2013)

It had me at Blue (Da Ba Dee) but lost me with its excessive, unnecessary quips.

Can we fault a superhero movie for being too funny? Did we really need all those quips amidst all the dying people?

Granted, Robert Downey, Jr.’s the most charismatic actor (aside from Johnny Depp) but the comedy here really put me off.

Sure, it’s cool and everything’s tongue-in-cheek but this isn’t about some Norse god that fell on earth. There’s no need for camp.

Rating: ★★★☆☆
