In my opinion, LAH suffers badly from that annyoing child actor, but not from the script.
I didn't mind the kid's acting - it wasn't the best, but not bad either. The film suffered because Arnold wanted more slapstick humor and in jokes added.

I don't love it, but I do like it despite its flaws.

Anyway, it's going to be very interesting to see how Shane Black fares at the helm of a superhero blockbuster. I'm glad to see him get the chance.

This pleases me.

I wonder if Marvel approached Black on their own, or if Downey recommended him to them, given their work together on Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang.

Re: Shane Black might write and direct "Iron Man 3"

It's confirmed now! I wouldn't be surprised if it was RDJ suggested Black to them. Downey is also the person who suggested Justin Throeaux write the Iron Man 2 script based on his experience with him on "Tropic Thunder". Methinks though most of the genius behind that film was squarely on Ben Stiller's shoulders. This has me happy.

Re: Shane Black might write and direct "Iron Man 3"

Last Action Hero is an incredibly fun and creative movie.

A lot of the movie's silliness inside the "movie world" is meant to be a parody of your typical "Arnold action movie", which it feels like people just ignore. One time I saw someone complaining about how unrealistic (relatively speaking) some of fictional Arnold's action stunts were. Well yeah, that's the point, everything is over-the-top in the fictional Arnold.

That's great news. I love the Lethal Weapon movies and Kiss Kiss Bang Bang was great!

Yeah, I love that movie too for reasons you point out.

No, I think that's obvious. It's just that some of the slapstick doesn't work and isn't funny (in my opinion of course). It's a problem of execution rather than concept. The original script had the same framework, but was more subtle and clever in the element of parody within the movie world.

Makes me think Paramount will bend over backwards for whatever RDJ suggests to keep him happy. Pretty soon they'll give him "Executive Producer" credit.

Well he is the centerpiece of this franchise so he gets pissed off and leaves they're down a significant part of their movie universe.

They distributed the first two, but Disney paid them out and will be handling the third one.
