While not as good as the first film, but not as dull as the second, Iron Man 3's strengths are in Robert Downey Jr., Shane Black's Direction, and the always wonderful Visual Effects. Even if it ruins an iconic comic-book villain
Shane Black makes the most he can from the Iron Man mythology. However this is divided in being a full on Shane Black flick or a Marvel sequel. And while the twist doesn't bother me like it does to hardcore comic book fans, I still believe a Kinglsey Mandarin would have been one of Marvel's most memorable villains, which is the area the franchise suffers from the most.
Has some minor struggles, but worth it for the unexpected bits they got right, like the hero not just being able to brush off what he experienced in the Avengers. Nice apology for Iron Man 2, which was barely okay.
I can't seem to be able to watch it. no one should watch this. terrible potential just wasted. the tone is wrong the writing is wrong, the villain is wrong. wow, what lazy film making. again great potential for the themes they brought up but went nowhere.
The action is spectacular, and yet, the movie never seems to lose its focus on its main subject: the man BEHIND the mask, a somewhat Shakespearean-style hero with a troubled past, once again, played FLAWLESSLY by Mr. Robert Downey Jr.
To me, this movie kicks ass. It gives a whole new level of depth to the character of Stark, taking him from a great character to and amazing one. The story structure is classic and to me a straight up blast. I don't care if it's faithful to the comics, as I'm here to see a good movie. And yes, I got that.
It doesn't appear that Tony Stark will ever live up to his first trial as Iron Man, but Iron Man 3 is still a great film thanks to Downey Jr's ability to deliver on the screen, and a worthy villain to challenge the Iron Man. Typical enjoyable and explosive Marvel entertainment, which is never a bad thing.
Terrible movie. Shamed the comic books and great acting by Ben Kingsley. Destroyed a perfectly crafted villain matching the comics to gain minimal humor value. Stupid and un-rewatchable. Took down the Iron Man franchise. No more will follow this trash.
