Simply A Masterpiece
A great movie, one of the best of this year. There was a bit of confusion at one point in the plot, but nothing serious.
A terrific literary drama and character piece that shows how the process of creating art can be seen differently by those doing it and those looking at it from the outside.
Iron Man 3 starts off strong, but it gets weaker and weaker as the movie moves along. It seems to depend on smoke (witty dialogue) and mirrors (cool action sequences) to distract audiences from the convoluted storyline and the occasional plot hole. Even Robert Downey Jr., as entertaining as he is, seems to be coasting through this film. Plus, in the end, they try and quickly wrap everything up in a tidy trilogy package and it just doesn't work. This movie is on par with Iron Man 2, but it's nowhere near the greatness of the original Iron Man film.
The Iron Man films are like pizza: even if the product itself isn't as good as the last one you had you get a full-belly's worth of nourishment and satisfaction all the same. Marvel manages to make decent movie after decent movie almost with all-too-much precision. They have a working formula of 'hero being more interesting than the villain' and unfortunately Killian is simply too un-compelling a villain to be invested in; he's there because he's played by Guy Pearce. With that said, Robert Downy Jr. gets time to shine as a desperate Tony Stark who has to take on baddies without his iconic suit.Iron Man Three is not the best of the MCU films but it's still a good action film nonetheless.
Iron Man 2 could've been better, I still like it but Iron Man 3 is an improvement. Now, I wanna talk about The Mandarin. Alot of fanboys and trouble-making Marvel haters got their panties in a bunch trashing Iron Man 3 only because of the whole Mandarin thing. Yes, thats the only reason why yall hate Iron Man 3, I dont care. I get it, Ben Kingsley was The Mandarin based on the trailer and marketing but the twist took nothing away because he was never The Mandarin. Ben Kingsley's character was just a washed up British actor getting paid to play a role pretending to be a terrorist in the media. The real villain is Aldrich Killian (Guy Pearce), he's the mastermind who used "The Mandarin/Ten Rings" as a decoy to protect his illegal explosive experiment. Killian and his company "AIM" were the villains. Killian claimed to be The Mandarin but he really wasnt, although he did have some traits of the character but he created his own version.And NO! you dont need to watch the One Shot "Hail To The King" short film with Ben Kinglsey to learn that a real Mandarin exist in the MCU. He was already hinted in Iron Man 3 long before the short film was considered. To quote Aldrich Killian "Because the second you give evil a face, a Bin Laden, a Gaddafi, a Mandarin, and you hand the people a target." There you go. That wasnt so hard,eh? The real Mandarin/Ten Rings are still out there. They had nothing to do with the events of Iron Man 3. The One Shot "Hail To The King" short film was not an apology, it was to shut you spoiled brats up.
I am sorry guys but I personally think Iron Man 3 isn't as good as the other Iron Man movies. In Fact it is probably the weakest in the whole of the MCU film series.The movie as a whole just felt boring even my uncle who I went to see it with wasn't too proud. For example when pepper is about to fall to her death in an area filled with fire but Tony doesn't catch her in time. My question is how did she survive that? The goods to come out of this movie was the different armors of Iron Man.You are welcome to watch this movie since you need to watch them in order but in my opinion this isn't as good and you might be disappointed.
