The version available through Hulu, Amazon Prime Video, and EPIX are all cropped to 1.78:1. This is odd, because all three of these services usually maintain the 2.39:1 ratio through letterbox, in order to keep the original picture information. See more »
This movie contains some throughly enjoyable moments that are on par with some of Downey Jnr's highlights as Tony Stark. The relationship between Pepper and Tony is taken further and built upon brilliantly in this movie. It contains some really cool and innovative action scenes which are taken for granted now. However the poor villain, a pattern in Iron Man Solo Outings, and the lack of direction meant this is easily the poorest Iron Man Performance. It's still an entertaining watch but you wouldn't be wrong if you skipped this movie when rewatching MCU Classics.
