A Public Apology to Whiplash

A year ago, I said that Whiplash from Iron Man 2 looked like his outfit was made by "Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids."

After seeing the film I realize he was terrifying. Any guy that could make a handmade Iron Man suit, coolly walk into the middle of a Grand Prix race and cut a car going 100 MPH in half is OK with me.

My bad.

What did you think of Whiplash?  Did Mickey Rourke's performance surprise you?

  1. This made LOL - Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids. I enjoyed Rourke's interpretation. I thought Whiplash/Vanko was appropriately terrifying, but I also liked that he wasn't this mindless automaton. He was a smart guy who used the situation to his advantage when Hammer offered him a free ride. A formidable adversary. I loved the movie and thought it was a great time!

  2. Mickey Rourke did a great job giving the character depth. He could have just been an automaton (good word) but he gave a unique performance by speaking mostly Russian and researching life in a Russian prison. I'm givin' him props.
