the anti-Batman, all zip, and zingers. He’s also, suddenly, rather family-friendly. Some of the movie’s best moments are shared by Stark and latchkey kid Harley (Ty Simpkins), who mock their budding father-son relationship while acting it out.

Rafer Guzman from Newsday

changing this billion-dollar-plus franchise’s tone for the better while keeping the same actor as Tony Stark. There is quite a bit of Black’s trademark attitude and humor here as well, things like a throwaway reference to the sci-fi classic Westworld and a goofy character who has Tony Stark’s likeness tattooed on his forearm. Black and company throw all kinds of stuff at the audience, and though it doesn’t all work, a lot of it does and the attempt to be different and create unguessable twists is always appreciated.

Kenneth Turan from The Los Angeles Times

The villain is generic but that doesn’t detract too much from an otherwise fun time full of plenty of spectacle and a deeper look at Tony Stark’s psyche.

David Hogan (

The movie does exactly what a blockbuster should–entertain.

Candice Frederick  (Reel Talk Online)

Beyond all the explosions and action set pieces and 3D wizardry, you can still hear a writer with a distinctive, entertaining voice.
