    ★★★

    Like the very much anti-imperialist slant Iron Man is somewhat going for, but I do find it a bit confused.

    It is almost impossible to go into this movie hard without spoilers. If you're still reading this despite the obvious spoiler warning, I recommend this movie. It's an extremely interesting psychological thriller filled with…
