Iron Man 3 (2013)
When Tony Stark's world is torn apart by a formidable terrorist called the Mandarin, he starts an odyssey of rebuilding and retribution.
Why so much hype?
Redundant and unnecessary.
There are moments that feel comical, some horrific, and some downright inspiring but the tonal shifts hardly matter as the end results come to a film that's perfect for this time.
The film never slows down or bores, plunging from one harrowing sequence to the next.
Not bad at all. Tony is still dealing with the effects of the Manhattan battle through PTSD and fights it throughout the movie like his own personal demon. The bad guys exploding with Extremis I thought was kind of cool, but they only exploded when necessary to advance the plot, if they a had done that to Tony whenever they saw him there would be no movie. Maya Hansen was a useless character throughout the movie. The Mandarin was super cool up until he was some British actor, I thought it was kind of disappointing, but then Killian was the Mandarin just didn't make sense. Guy Pearce was also a good villain despite what they made him into. The scene where Tony saved everyone from falling out of the plane was cool and the ending fight scene with all the Iron Man suits was pure awesomeness. I liked the movie a lot despite some of its problems, it is still a worthy movie.
More action suit mayhem. This time he has developed anxiety, which is joked about - fine, but a bit coarsely. This time it allows the movie to bring in a way of supercharging the brain's capacity for regeneration - a fantastical concept that is hard to get one's head around - but Rebecca Hall's character is just thrown away that doesn't make logical sense. Downey Jr is on top form with his mousetrap fast wit and familiar guile of a man with everything but some peace and quiet. The Iron Man does some amazing things but then it just all falls apart - which feels like the filmic equivalent of a humble brag.
The action scenes were very cool, but the story didn't make much sense and there were way too many characters and stories crammed together. It was better than the second, but not as good as the first.
Tony Stark spent about 15 minutes total wearing the suit. Marvel needs to stop letting the actors walk over them with the I WANT PEOPLE TO SEE MY FACE thing. This movie was called Iron Man. If i want to see some guy using gardening gloves modded with junk he got at Home Depot I watch HOME DEPOT MODDED GARDENING GLOVES MAN. The only reason i gave this 1 and not a zero is beacuse a honor of being the worst movie ever goes to Batman & Robin.
