Default Re: What didn't you like about the film?

I'm surprisingly OK with the last act. If the Samurai/robot/thing had been 100 feet tall and destroying downtown Tokyo, I would have thought they'd gone way too far and ridiculous.

But it was still pretty contained for what it was, and the whole story with Yashida was leading up to it anyway so it worked well enough for me.

I loved that neither of the two female characters needed rescuing. In fact, they were the ones who had to save his ass through that whole finale. And they did that with their clothes on, which is more than I can say for Iron Man 3's finale.

(And I loved Iron Man 3. But Mariko & Yukio >>>>>>Pepper Potts in their respective finales).

Would you like to take it out and ask it?
’Should we honor our treaty, King Louis’ head?’
‘Uh, do whatever you want, I’m super-dead!’"
