While I had my problems with this movie, the way they handled IM wasn’t one of them, possibly RDJs greatest performance as the character, and that’s saying something. I haven’t always liked the direction they took with the character, but man they chose an amazing way to end it. Amazing stuff and I am not ashamed to admit a tear rolled down my eye at his death scene.
Damn good stuff, they nailed this character in the movie.
RDJ hopefully will get some Oscar love for his performance....
Spoiler: RDJ impact
From start to last across this 11 years he's done a stand up role, congrats to him.
That was a good call. It added so much to the moment, and it felt very true to the character.
Well done to that editor.
why didn't we get some Stark/Rhodey scenes? I wanted one final farewell for these old pals.
We did, he was the first by his side in that moment
Fans REALLY need to accept that even with a three hour run time that given all the characters and the 22 films of continuity to consider that's it would be impossible to fit everything they wanted into this film.
That should be self evident but I can't count how often "I don't know why X or Y didn't occur in this movie considering the history we know of...?" has been seen around here or other places online.
yeah but only last like 5 seconds. Not even words were said.
That's true. But some things should be stated far more. Rhodey and Stark are best buds. They weren't together at all during the events of Infinity War. Neither mentioned the other during that one.
And in this one, they barely spoke to one another. Just saying.
Sometimes there is no need for words.
Well...that is kinda true, but...
...the reason why to me this movie felt differently (than IW), is because the screentime was distributed differently. Granted, when we saw IM or Caps we also saw other characters, yet Caps had more than an hour of screentime. Consider Thor, the MVP of IW, who was nerfed so Cap could shine. Thor had roughly 15 minutes of screentime. I think that in a 3-hour long movie they could have easily fit a lot more things into the mix if they would have distributed the screentime of each character differently.
I loved how different Rhodey, Spidey and Pepper all react in that scene so I'm glad they went with no words. Sometimes brothers don't need to speak to each other to understand and feel it all.
But the reverse was true of IW. Thor got his shine THERE. Far more focus, story importance and dialog that Capt. America by a wide margin in IW. In that film Capt. America fans complained about lack of focus on him despite some showcase in the main battle. In AEG with Thor, who is shown a lot fighting both Thanos and his Army and has his own arc in AEG, it's still not as large a part as Caps. So, proving my point once more that even with three hours there had to be trade offs.
I know we all like to think that Disney and Marvel can do ANYTHING... But they can't. There are practical limitations on these films. They weren't going to make a four hour long film to appease every single fan's feelings about who should and should not get "shine".
..and then was ushered away, quick as you like, appreciate Pepper is his partner, but it was like, 'Right James, go and stand in the naughty corner'. He barely had time to say goodbye.
To be fair, there wasn't much time to say goodbye; Tony had precious seconds left. Knowing this, Rhodes merely opted to take the selfless route by keeping his goodbye short and allowing others to get in there before it was too late.
Rhodey was literally the first person who spoke to Tony when it mattered.
I don't recall him speaking at the end. He just looked to him.
^THIS. Especially after having 0 screentime together last film.
