I saw Iron Man 3
yesterday and thought it was okay. There were some things I really liked, and some I really didn't like.
What I liked
-I enjoyed the action sequences.
-I liked how there was more Rhodes. I think Don Cheadle is a pretty cool actor and I'm glad he got some more screen time.
-I thought the way Iron Man used multiple suits throughout the final fight with The Mandarin was really cool.
-I was really diggin' Happy's Vincent Vega haircut at the beginning.
-And of course, the charm Robert Downey Jr. brings to his portrayal of Tony Stark was there, and that was great.
What I didn't like
-I didn't like Guy Pearce's character, Aldrich Killian. It hit me pretty early on in the movie that he was essentially Jim Carrey's Riddler from Joel Schumacher's Batman Forever, with the whole long, scraggly haired genius who wants to impress the handsome billionaire but ultimately is rejected causing him to revamp who he is by becoming a villain, and trying to make the hero chose between "the girl", and "the other dude". I thought Guy Pearce's acting was good, but the character was "meh", at best.
-I didn't like how little Tony Stark wasn't in his Iron Man suits. Allot of people have this gripe with Batman in the Nolan trilogy, but personally, I think that character can get away with it, especially when considering the world the Christopher and Jonathan Nolan, and David Goyer built for those films.
-I couldn't understand why Tony Stark destroyed all his suits. I understand if he is a tormented from what happened in The Avengers, but the way they did it, it made it seem like Tony did it for Pepper.
-I also couldn't understand why it took Tony Stark 3 movies (4 if you're counting The Avengers), to finally have the surgery to remove the shrapnel from his chest.
With all that being said, I was still entertained. For me, it goes: Iron Man
, Iron Man 3
, then Iron Man 2
(Also, I know very little about Iron Man so please, if I had anything wrong, let me know, but without one of these ":D", at the end.)
