There's a slightly depressed, going-through-the-motions feel to the entire show.
It's probably too pro-America for anyone that works for the New Yorker. He was probably under orders to find something wrong and bash the film as best he could.

After reading this article I see hardly any evidence that this guy even watched the movie. It kind of sounds like he watched the first 15 minutes and than deduced whatever he could from the trailer(s). And what's his beef with robert downey? jesus. You'd think downey must have killed his first born. For the most part I think this review is pretty worthless and agree hole heartedly with woof69, this guy needs to take leftest chill pill and enjoy iron man kicking *** this summer.

I really hate when critics spoil major parts of the movie like how David gladly puts at the end and "oh yea Tony Stark reveals he is iron man to the public." I would have thought that they would go through the whole arc where Tony just claims that Iron Man is working for him. Reminds me of how Peter Traver at Rolling stone always never ceases to put in spoilers like when he casually wrote on Superman Returns "Oh yea and Lois Lane's kid is superman's."

Talk about a guy who takes everything in life a little too serious. Geez, it is a comic book movie. I haven't even seen it yet, but I can't imagine ever going into this film and pulling all of this nonsense out of it.

I just checked for good measure, he didn't like Batman Begins either. He thought it should have been funnier. He obviously just doesn't understand the genre.

All I can say is that you are a douche david, get a life and relax a little.

It's good you wasted a small part of your life writing this history lesson which bored me after the first para.
I am glad you wrote such a bad review that people won't read it lol but dude have some common sense and courtesy to remove the spoilers and not include them in your future history lessons Doh!!!!

Don't ruin the movie for people, jackass.

This guy is an idiot! I signed up just so I can bash this guy. I just came back from the early showing and its insane. I respect if someone doesn't like it but this guy went to far. Plus, he didn't even like Batman Begins. wow...

this review is probably just a reflection of this guy's life- depressed, going through the motions. No wonder this guy hates Iron Man.

Snobbery about foreknowledge involving how the movie was written, not any actual impact on the quality of the movie that said method of writing had, is the only reason any critic dislikes this movie.Disliking the fact that four writers barely collaborated on the script before the director and the lead actor turned it into gold is something only an intellectual idiot could respect.

This is obviously a movie that should not have been reviewed by a New Yorker critic. It's based on a comic book. Too simple in its concept for a mind that's filled with liberal political correctness. Chill out dude. I don't think many will take offense with the water boarding.

Worthless review from a worthless reviewer working for a worthless magazine. At least he is consistant.
May 5 - 11:12 AM
Personally, I think any magazine that staffs a critic that panned Iron Man should subsequently fire that individual for being a complete and utter imbecile.

I loved every scene. You so crazy.
May 5 - 03:29 PM
How can you reveal the last line of the movie in your review!?!? What a schmuck!
