Way better than it gets credit for...
January 4, 2019
I never understood why people bagged on this movie so much. Granted, it's not as good as Iron Man 1, and they changed one of the main characters, but it definitely was for the better Don Cheadle is amazing, and that Howard guy gets more credit than he deserves. Justin Hammer is excellent, War Machine is perfect, and even Micky Rourke is not bad during the first half. A big grey bad guy with whips at the end is pretty lame, the whole "new element" story is pretty dry and kinda pointless and the whole let's blast each others blast thing is right out of a cartoon for six-year olds, but still, the last fight scene with Iron Man and War Machine - the "kill box" scene - to this day, is still among my favorite scenes in the whole MCU. So yes, there are a few kinda lame things, but in my opinion, the good stuff makes up for most of the bad.
