Ironman 3. Did you see it? … No? Stop reading.
!!! Warning Spoilers !!!
I wanted to give you a chance to back out. I hate spoilers. I am sure there are other reviews out there. Reviews written by better writers than myself. If you’re reading this, you probably just want my impression of Ironman 3. I enjoyed it.
I had the unique experience to watch the first two Ironman films, The Avengers, then Ironman 3 in the theater. It was great, and the environment made it even better.
I have one issue with Ironman 3. One small issue. I was a little put off by Pepper saving Tony right at the end. Only because the movie is “Ironman”, and call me crazy, but I think the title character should get the killing blow.
For that matter, Stark could’ve been in his suit more during the film. However, I have this problem with most comic movies. I know the actors want face time, but I go to the movie to watch Ironman. I don’t go to watch Robert Downey Jr. (The worst perpetrator of this comic movie crime was, the Spier-man franchise. Too much Toby Maguire.)
Despite these two small issues, I still really liked the movie. I will be seeing it at least one more time. The movie had the same flow, and feel of the previous two. It was funny, and had action. I liked how they handled The Mandarin. (Overall, I like how Marvel films have used science to explain the magic that exists in their movie universe.) I think the film was a good punctuation mark to stop on while they move on to other properties.
On deck: Star Trek: Into Darkness, and Man of Steel.
