Default Rank the Iron Man movies (IM, IM2, and IM3)

For those who have seen all three.

Explain your reasons if possible.

The first is still the best, as far as story and characterization.

IM2 is entertaining. Even though it's the weakest of the three, it still doesn't deserve the backlash it gets. For my money, it's a good movie.

IM3 had the best action scene with the final showdown at the docks). I'd rank it above IM2 for that alone. Still, I wasn't a fan of some of the plot twists.

Iron Man 1 has the best grasp on story, emotion, all that jazz. Iron Man 2 upped the action which included a really cool sequence at the race track and IM + Warmachine ripping apart some bootleg robots. Whiplash never felt like a true threat, unfortunately, and wasn't that great of a villain.

IM 3 was the funniest, imo but didn't leave much time to feel for the characters before going back to the quips. Good, but not great. I'll rank them as follows:

1) Iron Man
2) Iron Man 3
3) Iron Man 2

Iron Man - 9.5/10 - best superhero movie I've ever seen. Extremely faithful.

Iron Man 2 - 8.5/10 - Very good but you just can't beat the first. Some liberties taken starting to bother me.

Iron Man 3 - 5/10 - Unforgivable if it stays as is w/o some retcon or something.

Ranked them pretty well. Iron Man isn't the best superhero movie still but it was when I saw it.

By the gods, I really disliked IM3 on so many levels.

Well everyone is gonna have a different opinion about which they think is the best. Usually it will coincide with whatever fandom they already had.

And I've changed my mind somewhat on IM3 after the initial shock of it all. I still rank it last among Iron Man movies but I ended up giving it a 7.5/10.

Pretty much agree but for me the twist was the least of the problems with the film although it was pretty aweful. Iron man was wonderful but I wouldn't say its the absolute best for me but it was the first of the best.

Just to clarify, I wrote that about IM3 during the first week or so when it was out and the twist had me hot and pissed off. I got over it soon after and now I'd give IM3 a 7.5/10. Still the least of the series for me but on the whole I think it's still a good movie. Though I still hold out hope for a retcon since they left plenty of wiggle room for it. My opinions on the first two have not changed though.

Villain? Maybe.
Action? Agree.
Story? Nope, IM1 in a landslide.
Laughs? IM1 in a landslide again.
Excitement? Tie between IM1/IM3
Heart? IM1 in a landslide.

And I knew about the twist before I even saw the movie.

Iron Man - Best Incarnation of the character, Main villain and story
Iron Man 3 - Best action sequences, laughs and entertainment
Iron Man 2 - Good for the introduction of War Machine, Black Widow, Fury and Avengers tie-in build up.

I don't dislike a single one of them, however. I just think that Iron Man 2 is the weakest of a very solid film trilogy.

IM2- 6.5/10

IM3 is the funniest, most action-packed and most re-watchable. It's my favorite superhero movie yet.

I don't think you can judge his viewing of the movie.. If he thinks it had the best of those who are you to argue against him?

This forum wouldn't exist if debates weren't supposed to happen. I'm not judging his opinion, just disagreeing with it.

I confused on how this could be weaker than IM2. When 2 came out it was just like it is people complaining about a weak plot and villian and in 2's case to much Avengers stuff. Vanko was an extremely weak villian and was absent from the screen for a good chunk of the movie or if he was on screen he was in a lab... I mean how could anything be as weak as the final battle in IM2? I am not saying is IM2 horrible ( it's not) but I have a hard to believing 3 is weaker. I think people are just saying that because they are mad about the twist.
