OK, it went to another very popular Marvel Comic flick but the message was loud and clear, especially throughout the second half of the film. An excellent role for the roller-coaster known as Downey Jr. (whom Disney repeatedly did not want in the role), who really seemed to enjoy and excel playing the troubled genius ill-fated billionaire.
Did it follow exactly as the 60’s story did, no, but damn it was still a good story. Combining elements of yesterday and today.. just as the Batman series (part deux) has been able to do. Let’s hope the sequels will follow suit where the X-Men films and Spidey’s have faltered and failed.
Comic book epic for sure… bring the popcorn and no bathroom breaks.
