With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him. As he fights his way back, Stark discovers the answer to the question that has secretly haunted him: does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man?
In many ways, Iron Man 3 was a good movie. Robert Downey Jr.once again does a great job of playing the arrogant, clever, yet admirable character, Tony Stark. He filled the audience with laughter as he made his usual remarks throughout the movie. It was composed of a strong story line, that was filled with many plot-twisting and action-filled events. However, some of this events in the movie could be viewed as disappointing.
For one thing our hero Tony Stark, seemed to rarely put on the suit and become the powerful hero we all know him to be, Iron Man. Just as soon as we think he is about to suit up and launch off to victory, he stumbles and is forced to fight without his armor. I know that perhaps the writers of this film were trying to make a point, that Tony could still be the hero without the metal exterior, I felt that a concluding movie to the Iron Man films should of had more action with him in the suit. In addition, I was disappointed that there wasn't an epic fight seen at the end of the movie with Stark in the suit against the Manderin.
The characters in this film were displayed very well. Almost all the characters were likable in some way. The main villain of the movie was despicable, powerful, and threatening as a good villan should be. Pepper Pots of course did a great job at being both Stark's assistant, and girlfriend. However, I felt that Pepper's character was sometimes over-played as the hero too much.
Overall, the film had a very good story, and message. Some aspects of the movie were disappointing like Iron Man not being displayed as the main hero enough, but the multiple suits, and dangerous supernatural powers of the enemies were quite thrilling. In conclusion, the Iron Man 3 was a good movie that is worth seeing, but could of had a little more.
Iron Man 3 is a great movie. Action, humor, and a large dose of sarcasm. It is just as good as the first and second Iron Man movies. But that is also it's problem. When doing a sequel you have to make it better than the last, start a new story arc, or doing something different. More of the same is still great when it comes to Iron Man. But you leave the movie wishing there was more. The final battle itself was a bit of a let down. Suddenly the bad guy has 100's of soldiers, and now Tony has 100's of Iron Men. But everything happens so fast, and the battle is so evenly matched it took away from the awesomeness of having so many Iron Men in one spot. And the bad guys start as just hard to kill and change to impossible for one Iron Man alone.
Without getting into detail the finale of that battle was the saving grace. It's just the battle as a whole seemed rushed and done without much thought, but lots of destruction.
Despite my disappointments you will still want to go see this movie. And wait for after the credits, it's good for a laugh.
I've been anticipating Iron Man 3 for quite some time now, mainly because I was hoping the change in talent behind the scenes in the form of Shane Black could help breathe fresh new air on this beloved superhero. For the most part, Iron Man 3 is a worthy sequel as it delivers on a charismatic performance from Robert Downey, Jr. as always, and a wickedly funny script. However, it does stumble when certain "revelations" are brought to light concerning the films primary villain, The Mandarin. It is quite a dividing plot twist that won't sit well with some, and personally I thought took a lot out of what the film had going for it. There's also a surprising lack of action sequences, but they are impressive enough when in effect. Ultimately, it's a funny, good time at the cinema, but go in with caution because chances are it's not the film you'll be expecting.
