The latest in the on-going saga of Tony Stark: US-patriot, one-man US-foreign policy and US president-elect. Okay, I made that last bit up. I think. Ben Kinglsey’s Mandarin is fun and it’s actually an okay superhero film. I especially liked the relationship between Stark, a man with no paternal instincts, and a kid. It is just so refreshing to see a rare moment of zero-schmaltz in an American movie. One indication that I enjoyed the film is that I didn’t catch Stan Lee’s usual annoying cameo. Please, please, please Mr. Lee, I beg of you, kindly desist from further cameos.

“Who the Hell is the Captain anyway?”—Roy Mathur
“He is not an adventurer, rock star and supervillain with a penchant for G&Ts, C7H10N4O2 and insanely loud music. His exploits do not usually involve arriving just in time to save the multiverse (or thoroughly bugger it up) in a Vimana shaped like a wardrobe. And, contrary to the wanted posters, he is certainly not a multi-tentacled cyborg from the 27th dimension.”—Anonymous
“Finally an honest review…great!”—Shayne T. Wright
