Default Re: Lack of Action? Iron Man 2 over again?

You know, Iron Man 3 might be great, or it might suck. Right now, we don't know. But where FreedomForLife annoys me is in his disparaging of Shane Black.

He credits him as the writer of Lethal Weapon 3 and 4, which he didn't write, while choosing to ignore the great Lethal Weapon and [I]Lethal Weapon 2[I], which he DID write. Then he chooses to ignore Shane Black's masterpiece, Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang, and when someone calls him on the omission he dismisses it by saying Black didn't write it because it was based on a novel. That there proves he's never seen the film. The plot is lifted from the old pulp novel Bodies Are Where You Find Them, but the film itself is an elaborate deconstruction of pulp tropes, and brilliantly scripted, with the source material acting only as the most basic skeleton.
