Morgan Nichol’s review:
Continuing the proud tradition of completely failing to live up to the bright future of comic book movies promised by the first Iron Man film, we have yet another boring jingoistic turd.
It's not that it's so terribly bad - though it is fairly bad - it's just that they're spending so much money, and have so many good people working on it, and decades of rich history to draw from. And they make an alternate history WWII movie that should have been condensed into the first 30 minutes of the film, with the lion's share set in the present day.
'Cos that bit right at the end? That was probably the best bit in the whole film, and should have been just before the middle.
