From some talk in other threads it looks like Iron Man 3 is getting some traction. Hopefully it lives up to the hype.

IMDB says Mandarin is the villain.

I know nothing about mandarin, but here is the wiki.

From what I've heard, Stark is going to be completely isolated from the other Avengers throughout the movies' entirety. This excites me, because it will allow the writers to focus completely on Iron Man's storyline and avoid entangling the movie with any of the stories from the rest of the Avengers. (Which was a minor problem in Iron Man 2, in my opinion.)

Iron Patriot is simply an armor suit like the Iron man suits. It's not a person per say. In the comics, it was worn by Norman Osborn from Spiderman.

So obviously they have some wiggle room with regards to Iron Patriot and the villian...

My guess would be that Iron Patriot is a pseudo ally of Iron Man, to fight Mandarin.

Or probably starts out as an antagonist to Iron Man, but joins him in the later stages of the film or something.

‘Iron Man 3′ Brings BACK The Ten Rings! (http://latino-review.com/2012/09/25/exclusive-iron-man-3-brings-ten-rings/)

All hail the Ten Rings!

Inspector Gadget had M.A.D., James Bond has SPECTRE and it would appear that Shane Black’s globe-hopping techno-thriller Iron Man has the TEN RINGS.

One of the cooler Marvel Easter Eggs back from before there even were official Marvel Easter Eggs was that the group of terrorists who captured Tony Stark in the first film were associated somehow with “The Ten Rings,” a wink to comics fans who know that one of Iron Man’s most famous opponents, The Mandarin, had ten magical rings he’d wear that would give him powers. It the Iron Man film universe, The Ten Rings seems to be the name of a terrorist organization. In the first Iron Man, you can see a logo with two cross swords encircled by ten rings on the banner behind Tony when he’s being held for ransom.



In Iron Man 2, a scene was cut (or not filmed) where a man who gave Whiplash fake documentation revealed himself to be an agent of The Ten Rings (this remains in the novelization from what I’m told). Jon Favreau had a great scheme he occasionally mentions to reveal at some point in the Iron Man film future that The Mandarin was behind many of the Stark family’s struggles.

Yeah, they promised a sneak peek on facebook if folks like their page, and this was the results.

While I am looking for to the movie, this bit of marketing was very douchy of Disney. Could have at least give us a 1:00 minute trailer...something more than 17 seconds.

I watched it last night for the first time on Blu-Ray. Maybe I was in the wrong mood.

The dialog, to me, was weak and unconvincing. I thought that Loki was a bad choice and overall, the film felt clunky. The weird camera angles they used at times made no sense, Cobie Smulders was wasted and stiff and outside of Ruffalo and Downey, the actors were boring.

I expected more of an Iron Man 1 or Dark Knight type of movie. Instead, it was like a Michael Bay film but instead of Transformers, the Avengers.

I'll watch it again, if for no other reason that I bought it on Blu Ray with the digital copy, music CD, etc. but it was extremely disappointing to me.

Interesting take. The only thing I didn't like is that it wasnt shot wide, so the whole thing felt confined to me. Puzzling decision since all the other Marvel films were shot wide, then they get to the biggest one and shoot it 1:85:1. WTF?

My guess would be that's Whedon's preference. Each director is different; Kubrick hated widescreen, for instance.

See, I thought it worked. I can understand all your gripes, but I think it worked in the context of the story. I didn't have a hard time buying it at all. Cobie Smulders was acting? I didn't notice. She is one fine specimen of a woman.

Wow... I haven't heard many people at all complaining about Avengers. And that's from mostly non-comic book people. I really can't say I agree. I thought it was very well done. Getting that many superhero personalities on screen at the same time is quite a feat, and I thought it worked surprisingly well. The humor was perfect. The superhero nuances were very smartly done, and gave a real tip of the hat to comic book nerds.

I thought Loki was well done as well. They managed to show his evil conniving side, while still leaving a little room for a bit of conscience. They showed a tiny bit of internal struggle with Loki, and I thought it worked.

Who knows? My guess is they might have some cameos...maybe to introduce new characters. They will continue to have standalone Thor, and Captain America flicks as well. Which begs the question......Since all these Superheros know each other now, why wouldnt they ask each other for help whenever a new Supervillian pops up like Manderin? Why would you continue to go at it alone?

I'm pretty sure I saw all of the Blade films.
They were mostly enjoyable, but they never made me want to get immersed in the whole genre. I only saw pieces of the original Spidey franchise. I didn't dive headlong into the genre until 2008. I missed a bunch of stuff. The Ang Lee "Hulk" film, Ed Norton's "Hulk", the last Supes reboot, etc.

When I think about it though, the "X-Men" films were really my reintroduction to the genre (I'd been away since I was a kid). I think I've seen EVERY film in that franchise. They were so spread out though. The excitement would come and go.

I was referring to X-Men Origins: Wolverine. I called it 4 because it fit the sentence better. Either way . . . blecch.

I remember being in the minority having enjoyed that film.

I'm trying desperately to remember "The Last Stand".
Not sure I saw that looking at photos of the film.

Gonna check into this tonight when I get back.
Hope it's on Netflix.

Interesting take. The only thing I didn't like is that it wasnt shot wide, so the whole thing felt confined to me. Puzzling decision since all the other Marvel films were shot wide, then they get to the biggest one and shoot it 1:85:1. WTF?

IIRC that was forced on Joss Whedon by Disney. They seem to like the Flat format, as it translates better to home video. Apparently, Disney thinks all their customers are poor and own tube TVs. :shrug: Worked out for me, though, as Flat looks better than Scope on my IMAX Digital so "Avengers" was actually smaller than normal on the "35mm" side of the building but bigger than normal on the IMAX screen.

Iron Man 3 Hulkbuster and Deep Space Armor Concept Art (http://www.movieweb.com/news/iron-man-3-hulkbuster-and-deep-space-armor-concept-art)

In the past month, its been heavily rumored that we won't be seeing Hulk again on-screen until The Avengers 2. New concept art for Iron Man 3 has leaked, which indicates this may not be the case. There have also been rumors that Iron Man 3 will tie directly into Guardians of the Galaxy, with Tony Stark ((Robert Downey Jr.)) traveling into outer space at the end of his stand-alone movie to meet these intergalactic police. A second piece of concept art seems to indicate that this rumor is very true.

Here, we see Iron Man's Hulkbuster armor alongside his new Deep Space Armor, which was already given away in a look at one of the Pop! Vinyl figures for this Marvel Phase II movie back in January.

http://www.slashfilm.com/kevin-feige-says-iron-man-3-will-explain-why-tony-stark-doesnt-call-the-avengers/



“Why wouldn’t Tony Stark just call The Avengers if he’s having a problem in Iron Man 3?” It’s a questions fans have been asking for months in anticipation of the first film of Marvel Phase 2, out May 3rd. We all know Tony Stark is friendly with the likes of Captain America, The Hulk, Hawkeye, Thor and Black Widow so it would make sense for him to ask for help when battling The Mandarin. So why doesn’t he?

At a recent roundtable we joined with director Shane Black and Marvel President Kevin Feige (from which we’ll have more soon), Feige explained why he doesn’t think that’s a problem, and confirmed it will be dealt with in the movie. He also discussed how the S.H.I.E.L.D. TV show fits into the cinematic Marvel Universe. Read his quotes below.

Here’s Feige’s answer to the question of why Tony won’t call The Avengers:

Journalist: After cell phones came out horror directors had to come up with elaborate ways to explain why people wouldn’t call someone on a cell phone for help, now that all The Avengers know each other do you have to come up with excuses for why Tony Stark wouldn’t reach out when he needs a hand?

Feige: It’s a good question, and it’s sort of half and half. I am betting that like the comics you don’t have to keep – if you are reading a standalone “Iron Man” comic, they don’t spend every page explaining where every other Marvel hero is. The audience kind of accepts that there are times when they’re on their own and there are times when they are together. I’m betting that movie audiences will feel the same way. That being said, there is a little bit of lip service here and there to that. There is also just the very nature of Tony wants to, once he barely survives that house attack you saw today, and even you saw it in the message he left for Pepper, he’s basically saying “I’m going off the grid to try to figure something out.”

So not only will Iron Man 3 directly deal with the lack of Avengers, it specifically puts Tony in an isolated state of mind where, even if he wanted help, he wouldn’t ask for it.

As for the S.H.I.E.L.D. show, Feige was asked if Tony knew his good friend Phil Coulson was alive and well on TV:

Feige: Does Tony know that? No.

Shane Black Hints At IRON MAN 3 Love Rectangle? (http://www.comicbookmovie.com/fansites/MarvelFreshman/news/?a=75463)

Sir Ben Kingsley’s portrayal of The Mandarin has been lauded and evinced as the main antagonist of Iron Man 3, but Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark will also deal with Aldrich Killian, played by English-Australian actor Guy Pearce. Beyond the character’s role in the Extremis storyline, which Iron Man 3 is “loosely” based upon, not much is known about Killian’s interpretation in the film. Speaking with French magazine Première, Director Shane Black revealed, “We approached [Pearce] to play one of our villains, and he’s incredibly menacing as this guy who is insanely jealous of Tony Stark. He wants to possess everything Tony has, including his girl…”

Aldrich Killian may not be the only one badgering Tony and Pepper’s relationship. Played by Rebecca Hall, Maya Hansen was associated with Killian in the Extremis arc. “Rebecca is a talented, funny and beautiful actress,” says Black. “We needed someone who could be believable in the role of a scientist, who’s a little in spite of herself, and has a lot of charm. She was perfect. Maya Hansen is an old friend of Tony Stark from the past that resurfaces. This is not strictly a rival for Pepper Potts, but she has a real bond with Tony that goes way back.”

Marvel To Issue China-Only ‘Iron Man 3′ Version In Addition To Hollywood’s (http://www.deadline.com/2013/03/marvel-to-issue-china-only-iron-man-3-version-in-addition-to-hollywoods/)

The big news today is that Marvel Studios is releasing two versions of Iron Man 3. The Chinese version is destined to be a hot collectors’ item while fanboys will have a field day dissecting every frame that’s different from the Hollywood version of the Robert Downey Jr film. This third installment of the billion-dollar franchise is scheduled to be released in the U.S. and China on May 3, 2013. It will be distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures in almost all territories worldwide except China where it will be distributed by Chinese distributor DMG Entertainment. Here’s the statement:

http://www-deadline-com.vimg.net/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/Iron-Man-3__130320011415-275x405.jpg

Marvel Studios and DMG announced that a Chinese version of Iron Man 3 will be released in China on a date to be announced in the near future. DMG, a Chinese media and entertainment company, collaborated with Marvel Studios on the Chinese elements in the film, and is marketing and distributing the film in China. While Marvel and DMG have decided not to apply for co-production status in China, the film includes significant Chinese elements. Renowned Chinese actor Wang Xueqi will appear in both the studio’s Chinese version of the film and in its international and domestic US version. Both versions of the film include Iron Man 3 footage filmed in Beijing in December. The Chinese version of the film will also feature a special appearance of China’s top actress, Fan Bingbing, and will offer specially prepared bonus footage made exclusively for the Chinese audience. Marvel Studios’ experience working on this film with Fan Bingbing and Wang Xueqi and in shooting in China has been very positive and has created a springboard for future collaboration with China’s talented stars and its growing film and television industry. The Iron Man cast and filmmakers look forward to bringing Iron Man back to China.

I think casting Kingsley was a HUGE blunder. Not that it will cost them much money, but the Mandarin is Chinese, and they are obviously making a huge effort to cater to the Chinese audience.
It would have went a long way with the Chinese to have an actual Chinese person play him, I would imagine.
It's not like Kingsley would be brilliant casting even if the mandarin was from Yorkshire.

I think Chow Yun Fat would have been good in the role, but I have no problem with Kingsley in the role. He has the gravitas to pull it off, he is an oscar winning actor....he will not be the weak link in this film.

Saw it last night. It was... interesting. I think it's good. I think I liked it. But it's... strange.

From the get-go. (Strange choice of music, strange narrative.) Plot's a bit lighter on action than most people will like. Not sure what the Iron Man canon is but I get the feeling it plays fast and loose with it (i.e. Mandarin, Pepper Potts). As a film, it felt a bit rushed from scene to scene, with a lot of info packed in without much exposition or time to sink in; many people will be, like, "Wait... what?" It actually could've benefited by being a bit longer so things would have more time to absorb, a la "Avengers". It's a very story-driven film, with much less of "let's watch Iron Man do cool shit" and more "let's watch Tony Stark out of the suit having to deal with various issues". Just overall kinda weird. (Especially the weird man-boy-bond subplot in the middle that seemed to have no real purpose that I can discern aside from squeezing in one-liners and capturing a youth demographic, and later giving them the opportunity for a lot of corporate logo sponsorship. You'll understand when you see the film.) But the few set action pieces they had were well done (house destruction, Air Force One, multi-suit end-battle). Sound was excellent, 3D was well done like "Avengers" (nothing "comin' at ya!" gimmicky, in fact after it started I never even thought about the 3D part). I'm not really sure I liked it any better than "Iron Man 2", although "3" has more story to it. I'll have to see it again. I think true Iron Man fans will enjoy it, but I don't think the general public will have much affection for it, and it won't do the kind of business "Avengers" did.

Don't sleep on Lone Ranger, Wolverine, Elysium, White House Down, F&F6, Hangover III, The Conjuring, 300 sequel, .....and then the kids films like Epic, Monsters University, Turbo, Planes, Percy Jackson 2. Surely my wallet will be a little lighter this summer.

IP is something totally different and will have nothing to do with this movie.

Like I said, they play fast and loose with the canon. I asked a fanboy about Mandarin and he started talking about "powerful magic rings", and I said, "Okay, forget all your assumptions, because aside from the name the character in the film has nothing to do with the character you're describing."

Yeah. To go with that:

I'm not too knowledgeable about Iron Man comics, but I thought Extremis was the name of Tony's armor that was somehow infused with his brain. He could call the suit from wherever with just a thought or something.. In the movie, though, extremis is the name of the shit the Mandarin injected himself with to get those weird super powers.

What were their superpowers anyway? They could melt shit? Super strong? Explode then recompose themselves?

Kinda weird to me. What did you think about super-powered Pepper, JD?

Well, when Mandarin was in his early days he was pretty damn close to the most racist character portrayal Marvel had. There's no way they could portray him now the way the comics did when he was first introduced in the 60's.

Ya, I'm not a fanboy and don't read the comics but I did a little reading on the character since I knew that was supposed to be the villain and once I saw the movie it threw me for a loop.

That fanboy sux,. In the comics, the rings aren't magic. They are tech from a crashed alien ship.

Extremis in the comics is actually pretty similar to how it was depicted in the movie. It's a nanotech thing that rewires your brain and DNA to cause your body to rebuild itself according to a programmable plan. It can be used to give people superpowers, or to heal a disease (and I think it's pretty strongly implied in the movie that Killian used Extremis to make himself taller and better looking, and fix his legs). If I remember correctly there was only one guy in the comic with Extremis powers, and they were fairly similar to the movie (strength, healing, fire-breathing). But Tony programs Extremis to rebuild his body to be integrated with the suit, basically becoming a cyborg.

Its not amazing, but they tried a fresh approach on it, and it was entertaining. Less jokes it felt like but there were a few that I actually laughed out loud, and some solid action scenes.

Don't go in with TDK expectations, but a solid flick- plus I just never clicked with #2 as it felt scattered and really kind of thin in keeping my interest or amusement with the baddies.

Fair enough, but they raised the bar compared to how well super hero flicks in general. Ya, x-men 1 and the original Spiderman was well received, even though I didn't particularly love McGuire in the role and liked last year's Spiderman way more.

The genre as a whole had a lot of crappy releases that often ended up straight to video, and really the Superman movies in the late 70's early 80's were it except the occasional outlier.

Movies like Spawn, or the early 90's Captain America, DareDevil, etc attempts were film abortions, and having Marvel and others intervene and protect their brands and bringing in better writers, directors and talent has made the superhero flicks way way better even if that simply means they would get a solid B grade or so if you're being objective in their quality.

Ironically, the new director for IM3 has his roots in scribing the original Lethal Weapon franchise, and when watching the movie there were scenes that I totally thought of those movies, and I didn't know this before seeing the movie. Don't think many will see this as it was just minor scene location choices and what not. Don't worry, Tony Stark doesn't go all "Rog" and start saying " I'm getting to old for this shit!" or anything.

On a sidenote, I do think Downey Jr. Probably had a great deal of input on who they chose as the director for 3, as they had previously worked together right after Downey's downfall and slide in Hollywood on Kiss Kiss Bang Bang.
A movie that I love, and put Downey back on the path to A list actor after he was considered too much a risk and all the negative PR had almost killed his career.

His performance with Val Kilmer was awesome. Oddly enough, Kilmer has sort of grown up, and started taking stronger minor roles in very good projects as well as more feature roles in smaller budget, independent or limited release films that have been really good.

Sort of like Affleck stepping away from the leading man shit roles and charging his own career by getting back to writing, directing, and way more selective in his project choices, but obviously to a much smaller degree or trajectory because Val is older and more limited at this point of his career.

IM1 and 2
Incredible Hulk
Thor

Agreed all around as we were on the same line of thinking.

I really really like Avengers, but I'm even more amazed that I recognize what an almost impossible achievement that was to pull off.

Adequate attention to each character.
Strong plot that is original.
Keeping the proper film pacing with a single release time constraint.
I could go on and on even though I'm not in love with the flick but thinks its tremendously good and have very little to be critical about it considering the magnitude of the challenges at hand to actually not just pull it off but to end up being Marvel's strongest offering. Others will falsely claim with all those guys in it how could it not make it easy to make, but if that was true they fail to see how it can turn into a disjointed mess that feels like strung along scenes of cameos in a bland formulaic offering.

Might just need to pop on Kiss Kiss Bang Bang for a rewatch this evening!

With a few revisions, this could have been another Lethal Weapon flick. A lot of scenes and dialogue were pure Shane Black. I like how the entire middle act with the kid was basically kept hidden from the trailers.

I was too kinda disappointed bc all the buzz was this was Ironman's archrival and all the talk about how his history with him made for some of the best plots in the Ironman canon.

Also, I was very into Kingsley's performance and how menacing he came off- like it was building up to some really awesome chess match between the two.
Really seemed to be establishing by far the best villain of the 3 flicks.

I would really enjoy if there was a follow up where somehow Kingsley's character actually does transform into the Mandarin. As I understand in the comics he finds the rings which are alien origin, so what if he came upon the rings and it caused him to take on his Mandarin act for real and no longer just pretending to be him.

Yeah, it may be cheesy or a stretch but I would really love to see Kingsley return to the role and actually get a true movie pitting the two against one another.

I'll agree Downey is the perfect match to play Stark. Sadly he's said he's fastly approaching 50 and just can't keep doing it much longer, so we may get him for a bit longer but they're going to have to start floating ideas for the replacement just like they've started for Craig with Bond.

I think James Franco could be an intriguing choice.... haven't thought too much that one just kinda popped off the top of my head.

It was a step under everything. The more I think about this movie, the more I hate it. Even if they hadn't completely sold-out Iron Man's most distinguished and memorable long-time villain, and shot an uninspired and misguided movie, and populated it with boring villains and half-formed story lines and a God damned PRECOCIOUS CHILD that stupids down the experience by steps, they still would have to answer for that ending that completely undermined his entire four-movie arc.

I really enjoyed it. There were some problems, but overall, I liked it. Definitely worth seeing, even if you don't like what's going on with the Mandarin character.

I would have liked the mandarin to be behind the whole thing, but I didn't necessarily hate what they did with him. But I can see how the comic book guys just absolutely hate it. And to be honest, I didn't see it coming. They did a nice job of hiding it.

As for the Extremis...

I thought they were a little over the top. I mean reprogramming DNA and all that shit, yeah, that can make a lot of shit happen. But Tissue is still fragile, and my god it would take a hell of a lot of metabolism to make that shit happen. Whatever, most people liked them. I can get over it.

But I can't help to think that the CGI on them was bad. It looked like bad guys from the 80's when CGI first came out and they were all like LOOKZ AT THEEEE EEEYYYYYEEEEZZZZ. Their CGI on the Extremis was bad. Real bad. IMO.

My buddy thought it ripped off Batman pretty hard. He was kind of disappointed.

Loses power (loses suit instead of body breaking down). Goes to find himself (dungeons---Tennessee is pretty much a dungeon). Comes back to get the baddies. Until he had mentioned it, I hadn't made the connection. I think if you watch most superhero movies, that is how it goes. And the two movies are so markedly different, that I don't think it is a big deal.

My question is whether they will continue adventures of Iron Man.

Yeah, they took the shrapnel out of his chest (which, yeah, why the fuck didn't they do that in IM2 when he was fucking dying?), and he doesn't have the power source in his chest anymore. But he still knows how to make the machines and there might be a need for them.

The Banner cameo is fucking hilarious. HILARIOUS

I'm kind of hoping they do. Yeah, I know he'll be back for Avengers, but I'm kind of hoping they keep making IM movies. I know the 3 story arc is clean and nice and works well. But they've done a nice job of not making it too retarded. And as long as they don't get too over-sweeping and huge enemies, I think they can do some decent movies yet. Marvel has earned enough credit to let them try another.

As to RDJ as Stark, I think they need to leave it alone, if RDJ can't do it anymore, they need to leave it alone. RDJ is it.

Until he had mentioned it, I hadn't made the connection. I think if you watch most superhero movies, that is how it goes. And the two movies are so markedly different, that I don't think it is a big deal.



I haven't seen the movie, but that's a pretty weak criticism as the whole "lose power/symbolically die, journey to find oneself, reborn into greater power, redemption" story arc is archetypal stuff. I mean, that storyline is embedded in our DNA.

Didn't Favre not direct this one due to differences with Marvel? I dont remember if he directed Iron Man 2 or not.

Iron Man 1 easily the best and Avengers is up there with it as far as iron man movies

I'm not sure what happened with Faveru? But it was probably over money. I'll bet Black came cheaper. I give Faveau all the credit in the world for setting the right tone and creating the world right, but as an action director he's just kinda meh.

I thought this one created a better self contained, complete story than any of them.

So a couple of questions for the nerds...


Watched some of IM 1 last night...and noticed the terrorists symbols were the same ones used by the Manderin in his broadcasts. What's the significance?

What is AIM? My son noticed it in the movie and said its in the Avengers cartoons he watches.

Oh, no it isn't. The whole Killian/Mandarin/fake leader ploy is a carbon copy of the Ducard/Ra's al-Ghul/fake leader ploy, right down to the Asian figurehead.

In the comics, it's essentially the R&D division of HYDRA, responsible for creating a lot of monsters and supervillains and such, with more often than not your standard comic-book goal of taking over the world. In the movie, they really just name-dropped it as Killian's company.

Action was crazy but it was like TDK in a sense that it was much less iron man

I still enjoyed it more than the 2nd one which almost seems forgettable at this point

Heh, yea...I kinda admired the creative ways they kept keeping him out of the suit. Understand why a lot of hardcore comic geeks might not have liked it, but overall I liked how they tried to do something different than the standard comic hero thing.

While I have not seen it yet, I do not see anyway that they don't make IM4.....opening weekend of over 175 million in the US, second all time only to the Avengers. Of all the solo Marvel hero movies, Iron Man has the most punch at the box office. IM3 has a total gross of 680 million worldwide already.

That film had an absolutely convoluted plot, a silly twist, a dearth of action, and it dragged at least twice.

Just got home from taking the wife & my two boys to see this and it was good but certainly no home run.
I strongly disliked the Mandarin/fake/actor set up it was such crap.
We all walked to the car saying it was a good movie but my boys were saying why couldn't they have just skipped the Mandarin parts and made AIM as the focal point.My oldest wanted to see the Mandarins rings in action etc..
My wife ...it was good but I liked the first two better..
I've collected comics for 35 yrs and my fan boy self still loves RDJ as TS.
There is no doubt he is Great in this role.
But the movie did drag in parts I could sense my youngest(9) attention swaying once or twice.
And in truth this was more story than Iron man action as many have already said..I get that and yet it felt lacking.
I'm not even sure if TS was ever in one of his good suits at all.
The most action was when Jarvis was controlling the group of iron man suits.
Again I liked it but it was an 8 out of 10.
And thats ok if you forget the whole....

$60.00 Tickets
$20.00 Drinks
$25.00 munchies
$105.00 for 2 1/2 hours of entertainment.
Avengers was worth this, IM3 its debatable.

The least they could've done is shown a little more of Pennys Skin.

To add as I've said in the Trek thread...that Trailer WoW!

I don't know how to put this but this movie was the worst of the three. The rest of my rant/review will be in spoilers so if you click it it's your fault.


Problems:
The Mandarin... just dumb. For a major villain of the comics, treating him in that way was just terrible. It was like a slap in the face of all the fans of the source material. I read so many reviews that said Ben Kingsley was a huge reason to see this movie, until he was turned into a joke of a character... yeah he did well.

Joke after joke after joke after joke. I couldn't even finish laughing off the first joke before they threw another in. It felt very Michael Bayish, just forced humor around huge special effects the only thing it was missing was the racism.

Not believable, even for a comic book movie. When you issue this complaint people say, it's a comic book movie!!! At least the first Iron Man strayed more towards believable and an actual plot. How did Pepper become a badass, where she could roundhouse kick an explosive at a bad guy and then simultaneously shoot it with the hand cannon while it was in midair just before it hit the target? Honestly the coolest part of the whole movie was when he forced the Mark 42 armor onto Killian to blow him up. That alone would've been an awesome way to kill the big baddy. If one explosion didn't kill him then how the hell did Pepper's explosion to the face do it? Trust me, throw the Mark 42 armor on Killian, blow him up, have Pepper show she's alive, then do the ending.
Do you really believe that he could link 13 people together in midair as they're plummeting to the ground? Also a missile from a helicopter flies into the house and explodes right next to them and all that happens is they just get knocked back? Really? No ringing in the ears... just some scratches. The whole thing felt like they said throw it all out the door because this movie is about humor and special effects.

Extremis. Just a forced plot that had so many holes the experiment should've been called Prometheus. Extremis was developed as a way to heal people's injuries. How the hell does it allow the person to essentially melt inside, breathe fire, and have super strength to knock Iron Man around? In no part of the movie did they explain it really. The just said that it works sometimes and other times it causes the person to explode and become a human bomb. If you were going to go completely unbelievable, go with the Mandarin and the 10 rings. If you were going to go down that road, utilize your special effects and focus on Kingsley as the primary antagonist with super powers, like we all thought the movie was going to be about. Say the ten rings were the result of The Avengers movie plot, if you're going to go that way don't completely mislead your audience just to shift gears midway through the movie. Ask Spiderman 3 about having too many villains.

The middle of the movie. Boring. After his mansion gets blown up he wanders around for a good 30-45 minutes without Iron Man even being in the film. Even Rhodes was out of his War Machine/Iron Patriot armor for way too long. They took the Iron Man out of Iron Man. Also what was with that woman grabbing Iron Patriot on the wrist and melting him a bit and he just falls over. Same happened to Iron Man at the end with Killian. Is the off switch to the suit located on the wrist?

Usually I love comic book movies. I understand the unbelievable nature of them, take them for what they're worth, and come out saying they were good to great. This was a 7/10 and that's being generous.

Pick her up and drop her off at a psychologist, then go see the movie. She gets to fix whatever is bothering her in her life, and you get to see movie. Win/win.

I liked it too. I thought the dialogue was sharp and funny.

I get the criticisms of the movie, esp. plot and the Mandarin. And I was a big fan of the comics growing up. But IM3 I just enjoyed on a summer popcorn movie level. Wasn't expecting Dark Knight depth, and I thought it rose above the mindless noise of Transformer movies, which I can't stand.

I thought it was a fun, and funny, ride -- nothing more, nothing less.
