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

Just rewatched this.

+Shane Blackisms are refreshing (Narration, Christmas, 90's action movie feel)
+RDJ is funny as always
+Paltrow, Favreau, Cheadle, and Bettany were spot-on.
+Good special effects
+Iron Patriot looked awesome.
+"I am Iron Man" & the ending music

-The overall story is just not very compelling from a character or plot POV.
-A lot of the action was fairly underwhelming
-A lot of the jokes and dialogue fall flat
-Several characters don't have a clear voice (Killian's 'turtle' dialogue comes to mind, as did a lot Maya Hansen's scenes and the scenes with James Badge Dale). Not sure if the writing or the actors were off.
-I didn't buy a lot RDJ's more dramatic scenes.
-While I thought Trevor was funny, I didn't like how it felt like we went from 2 villains to 1. There was a lot of build-up with 0 payoff.
-The kid
