Default Re: Official rate & review IRON MAN 3 thread!

Just got back from watching this, I thought it was just okay. I say it's better than the second Iron Man, but the first is still probably the best in the series. Although this third one felt somewhat bigger (possibly due to the budget) than all single Marvel Studios films except Avengers. The film made me laugh in some parts. I even laughed at the Mandarin twist part, but I still cant decide whether it was me laughing at the twist or because it was so bad that it's good. I don't read much Iron Man comics, so I can't say if "The Mandarin" was true to the comics, but I am open to different takes on the character. I understand why he was used as the face of evil to aid the real "bad guy" Aldrich Killian. I have to add that Aldrich was a pretty bland villain for the most part. The visual effects and some of RDJs comedy were probably my favorite parts, but I wasn't invested in the story unfortunately. It was a fun family friendly movie, but I probably won't pay to see it again.
