Default Re: Official Iron Man 3 rate/review thread. - Part 1

I would give the movie an 8 to an 8.5.

I think Feige and Whedon were pulling our leg because the finale was in no way better than The Avengers, and while it was good I don't think it will be hard to top.

I think what kind of disappointed me the most was how almost innocuous the suits were in the movie. They are constantly breaking apart or just not working period. Tony can't seem to stick with one. You can also barely even get a good look at them before he dumps them or break them.

The plot twists:

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
Kingsley's performance is great. The plot twist is funny but unfortunately it happens at the expense of giving us a great and iconic villain for Stark to deal with. I'm fine with Killian being a villain but as "the villain" he just lacked that iconography that this franchise has always been lacking with the bad guys. I mean AIM being in the movie was cool, but we don't get the Scientist Supreme or anything.

Also, Tony's PTSD was a tremendous plot thread to start with but it resolved in an uneventful fashion and all but forgotten about by the end.
