From December 27th / 2013 / Cert 12

Kiss Kiss Bang Bang was pretty good, witty in a self-conscious sort of way, but nothing in the last cinematic pairing of writer-director Shane Black and Robert Downey Jr suggested that Black’s threequel would bounce back so emphatically after the disappointing Iron Man 2. Vulnerability suits Downey’s Stark, but even as he hits rock bottom, his natural disposition means that the film never stops entertaining, with Black giving us an unbelievable amount of bang for our buck, and an exquisitely rendered villain in Ben Kingsley’s Mandarin. Hey, it wasn’t 2013’s biggest movie for nothing.
