Re: Official Iron Man 3 rate/review thread. - Part 2
Robert Downey jr's witty and charismaticTony Stark is always a blast to watch and this is no exception. The supporting cast is also solid and there is some well staged action set pieces, but unlike the first Iron Man, this film fails to keep the character and the world grounded in something resembling reality. There are some scenes that defy reason and it all gets quite silly and over the top. There is a significant twist that is bound to piss off Iron Man fanboys [although it is pretty cool even though it wastes the potential of a major character in Iron Man's lore.] and I kept wondering where is Captain America in all this? I mean the U.S is being directly threatened and Cap is not even mentioned. pfft.
Entertaining but dissapointing at the same time.
2.5 out of 5.
