Surprise surprise. I was going to watch it out of marvel obligation and semi distant loyalty to Paul Rudd. Didn’t expect to like it. Not quite as good as the big boys but close enough. Rudd is able to move past his boyish charm to add a hint of maturity to the role allowing him to aid and provide dignity to the aging Michael Douglas. While the film has an old fashioned boys humor to it, that doesn’t cloud the marvel mission. Now I’m actually looking forward to seeing the second installment in which I’m assuming Evangeline Lilly will blossom and shed her stiff performance, now that she’s been kissed! (Randomly Rudd goes topless – who knew he had skinny muscles!) Predictable but fun film making it date night worthy.
