    Iron man 3 - my "review" *major spoilers!*

    After months of anticipation I finally watched Iron Man 3 last night. After leaving the cinema I came away with the following thoughts and would like to know what other people have thought about the film.

    WARNING: I MENTION HUGE SPOILERS HERE SO DON'T SAY I DIDN'T WARN YOU IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN IT.



    You guys agree / disagree with any of this stuff?

    Yet to see it, but movie spoilers dont bother me much.. but im curious.

    Why is "Film assumes that you've seen the first two and the Avengers... Doesn't explain where war machine comes from and why he is inferior to Iron man" a con? I mean its Iron Man 3, it shouldnt really need to re-explain things its already covered. Should it?

    Any poor movie go-er that hasn't seen the first two will struggle to see the evolution of the Iron Patriot and what makes him different to Iron Man. Outside the suit it's apparent but inside it's not so. Obviously you don't want to watch old footage over and over again but they need a reference to Tony giving him the suit (Although I might just have missed it) and a scene where Iron Man out performs Iron Patriot, as I think he should have the edge... la the laser spin at the end of the IM2.

    That's more of a movie goer problem than a movie problem. If your watching a sequel then you shouldve seen the one before it, the movie doesn't need to waste time to retread old story points cause you didn't watch the first two movies.

    I don't think thats true. For The Hobbit / Lord of the Rings, yes. If you want to make a good film, it should stand on its own two feet. Like I said before, I don't mean lazy flashbacks of previous films. Just subtle hints that boost the narrative.

    So... I don't want to risk spoilers, did you enjoy the movie a lot?

    I loved the first Ironman and was really disappointed with Ironman 2.
    I talk to myself because I'm the only one whose answers I accept.

    Yeah what LastManDancing just asked, was it good? Is it a huge improvement over IM2?

    I thought it was a good movie but I thought the twist in the movie was a little funny and bad at the same time. You have to watch it to know what I'm talking about. I don't wanna spoil it for you.

    I saw Iron Man 3 last Thursday and while I enjoyed it (http://www.magjournal.net/iron-man-3-review/), the big twist that everyone is discussing did piss me off.

    Thanks to Kwesnoth for the sig!

    I had high hopes as it was being hyped up as better than 2, and maybe it was but only barely. There is WAY too many suits now, Iron Man/Stark barely has anything special or unique about him anymore. You could send any of them off with the Avengers and it wouldn't really matter.

    Plus all those stupid limb power were just ridiculous, reminded me of Terminator too much. I should mention I'm a superhero movie fan not a comicbook fan.
    Trophy-licious!

    Actually Dave, the limb powers were based off of a really popular and cult classic comic book novel written and published in 2006 by Adi Granov, it's called Extremis. The three IM movies were based off of this, only very subtle in the first two, and full circle in Iron Man 3. It's actually really nice they did that, and it was pretty faithful.

    As for having the suits, that's just back up. They wouldn't last in an Avengers fight because they are controlled by protocols and the A.I. , Jarvis. They would have to be piloted by Tony himself for good accuracy. And they were blown up. This whole movie was more Stark and his suits were background. We see more character than in the previous two, which is really nice..

    My only weakness with it is The Mandarin. I understand trailers are supposed to lie, but not to that point. I've never been lied to that way before, ever, from watching a trailer. That was bull$#@!, I hated the twist, but that's because I'm an Iron Man fanboy. From a writing perspective, it's genius and hilarious.

    The Mandarin bit was probably the only genuinely funny parts of the movie and I didn't mind it. The rest was just a ridiculous film. It was like watching a fan made parody of the first two films. The writers must have been as high as kites when they thrashed out the script. The story was all over the place, nothing made any logical sense



    It's just a film of nonsensical plot devices to drive the dumb story down and equally nonsensical path

    None of the characters had any depth, even for a hollywood film they were shallow with only witless banter telling you they're standing in the same room as each other.

    I think we've seen the movie by now, and for those who still haven't... clearly this thread has spoilers, so....

    It's funny, I think I'm the only one who really enjoyed this film.

    Iron Man 1 8/10
    Iron Man 2 6/10
    Iron Man 3 8.5/10

    I love all the humor. These Marvel movies are simply fun... The issue might be comic book readers who are more invested in the canon than the casual person. I stopped bothering to expect any real depth after Captain America came out. You have Thor which is most nonsensical and nonlogical comic character I can think of.

    The plot twist with Mandarin was simply really good comic relieve to otherwise overbloated movie. I really enjoyed the henchmen adding to the stir of humor as well. The kid pissing off Stark was borderline but I think Shane kept it just within bounds. The hardest part was the end where Killian just doesn't die but thankfully that's varied enough to not be too overdone. I knew Potts would come back and then take him out. Fighting fire with fire.

    P.S. 10,000th post.

    EDIT: Btw, the house being destroyed... would it kill directors to use miniatures anymore? We already have a ton of CG between the suits and various bits of them.

    I actually liked the Killian fight a lot, I think that was a nod to Terminator 2 when the T-1000 rebuilds himself; Killian rebuilding skin tissue from that explosion.

    That would've worked if Killian was the only one who could regenerate. But I get the point.

    They boldly stuck with the "Mandarin twist" and actually did it. With that aside, they really wasted a great villain not only for Iron Man but for the Avengers.

    Off topic, if whatever studio was doing the Fantastic Four movies did it right, Dr Doom could have also been a great villain for the Avengers

    I love doom as a villian especially his arrogance.

    If every movie reiterated everything that happened in previous movies it would be boring for those that have seen the previous movies.

    Just like "previously on game of thrones..." FFS I saw the previous episode only last week or if you got the blu ray 10 minutes ago.

    Iron man wasn't very Iron man in this Iron man movie.

    What Mandarin Twist? It thought it was fairly obvious who was behind it all.

    I appreciate that they do it. Between all the story lines and the names, it can be hard to remember everything that went on. Besides, they also have to cater to people who might not watch regularly/each week.
