Re: Rank the Iron Man movies (IM, IM2, and IM3)
1) Iron Man - The movie respected the source material and cast aside the parts that didn't work well.
2) Iron Man 2 - The movie was a bit too derivative of the first film, but it did advance the Stark character and the Avenger's narrative.
3) Iron Man 3 - It did NOT respect the source material on ANY level. They made it up as they went along and vaguely explained away too many loose ends at the end. I just couldn't accept the throw away plot point that Tony's genius fixed everything that was wrong at the end. Entirely too OTT.
With great power, comes great responsibility.
