Re: Official rate & review IRON MAN 3 thread! - Part 3
Iron Man 3 was way better than it's predecessor but IM2 was so bad (imho) that it didn't really take much. Seeing Tony out of his suit as much as he was was an interesting way to take "Iron Man" but Tony 'James Bond' Stark was kind of neat...and The twist actually had me laughing (didn't spoil myself) initially, so I guess marvel did it's jobeven though all the armors fighting were cool, after the 'big battle' I realized Kingsley was more menacing and effective in those tapings than pearce could ever have hoped to be as the big bad. It almost ruined as much as BW surviving with that cop-out auto-pilot fix at the end of TDKR.
But alas, no film is perfect it was good but it could have been phenomenal
7/10 with a big missed opportunity to take this movie to notches unknown.
