This is the film that modern audiences deserve, a solid blockbuster that isn’t rubbish. It doesn’t seem like too much to ask, but so many films before and after this have failed to please. Thankfully Jon Favreau came along to direct one of the best standalone Marvel films I’ve had the pleasure of watching. It introduced the character of Tony Stark perfectly, making him accessible for non comic book geeks, whilst also pleasing those who have read the comics for years. It has well directed action sequences, funny screenplay, strong characters and half decent acting, what’s not to like?
