| Most underrated MCU film?
SYNOPSIS: After the incident at New York, Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) I struggling with extreme anxiety. While trying to cope with that, there's been a string of random and strange explosions going on around America and so he sets out to discover the source.

REVIEW: This film is so underrated among the the MCU films. I know a lot of people who actually dislike this film a lot. I like this film a lot due to us seeing a very human side of Tony Stark that you can really sympathize with. I know that sounds strange being that he is one of the actual humans of The Avengers, but he has a much larger than life persona. We do have Elon Musk, but Stark seems even crazier than that. Where before he would act out of selfishness due to wanting the spotlight on him, you see him act out of selfishness due to mental stress and because he's tired. I see this as a point to sympathize cause we know what he went through in The Avengers and the anxiety attacks he has at the beginning of the film. At that point we go, "oh so we can relate with him in some way." Many of us could even empathize with certain things. Shane Black did a really good job with spreading the conflict all the way through the film and giving it more of an investigative feel.

THE TWIST: If you know my reviews, you know there are certain times where I have to dedicate one section to something specific in a film. I think the twist in the film is incredibly important, because I believe this is ultimately what makes or breaks the film for a lot of people. I thought it was great. Ben Kingsley was phenomenal and with this twist threw me for a loop. I understood certain people who were bad, but when that twist happened, it flipped everything and to me it excelled the film to a level it might not have gone to if they didn't have this twist.

In the end, I can understand certain comic book heads who might've disliked the twist so I understand that. However, with the emotional aspect this film had, what it did for the Tony Stark character, how we got a bit more of Happy (Jon Favreau) and you can never have too much Favreau, then Guy Pearce as Aldrich Killian with a fantastic performance, this film had so much going for it and for me that makes this the most underrated film of the MCU. 7.8/10.

Did You Know?


Only Iron Man film not released the same year as any Chronicles of Narnia films.


Tony Stark: A famous man once said, 'We create our own demons.' Who said that? What does that even mean? Doesn't matter. I said it 'cause he said it. So now, he was famous and that basically getting said by two well-known guys. I don't, uh... I'm gonna start ...


(at around 1h 5 mins) Tony instructs Gary to "jump on the roof, recalibrate the ISDNs, and pump it up by about forty percent." What Gary adjusts is a satellite dish, whereas ISDN connections are hardwired using the same telephone system that is used for what is no known as a "landline." Even if it were an ISDN connection, Dual ISDN PRI has a max downstream bandwidth of 2.94Mbps, but the speed test shows a speed of over 9Mbps. Neither ISDN nor Satellite Connections could be increased in speed by simply making adjustments to the receiving equipment, with the possible exception of repointing the dish to a different satellite, which would be done using the equipment inside the van. Additionally, the screen shows two different IP addresses displayed in the standard system of four numbers, but one of the numbers in the first address and two of the numbers in the second address are above 255, which is the upper limit of number in actual IP addresses.

Crazy Credits
