Iron Man 3 has more. Twice the villains. Five times the Iron Men. More girls for Tony Stark. Pepper Pots finally gets some action scenes. But I like the guy with the English accent the best- even better than Australian hunk. Anything more and you could end up with a spoilt ending. Hollywood gives us movie sequels knowing we are suckers for watching how the story will turn out. This edition though was not so great as the last Avengers universe franchise. Go with lowered expectations or with your kids, and you will be okay.
On and one more thing! At the end of ALL the credits- the Dr Bruce Banner makes a 2 minute nice appearance. Witty! The movie just make a big hit financially but alarm bells should ring in the Avenger sequel universe. Especially since Star Trek and Super Man are just here!
And what would you call a movie thats part loveable Marvel hero,part James Bond humor and part brilliant casting coups. As for this year, uptil now you can call it Iron Man. While The Dark Knight, or even the soon awaited Will Smith ….starring Hancock may soon be the top grossing comic super hero based movie grosser,
this one tugs at your heart,the corner of your lips and your eyes.
Iron man stars a billionaire playboy ,sardonic,sometimes comically ironic , and reformed arms dealer Tony Stark …………played ironically by a reformed and still twinkling eyed Robert Downey Jr).Stark after a series of unfortunate events in Afghan caves decides brilliant minds ,and corporate money can be better put to use than corporate wars and weapons design.
Yes small and subtle war messages even in mainstream movies nowadays, but the chemistry between the Stark and Miss Potts (played by a still so lovely, and where have you been Mrs Coldplay……Gwenyth Paltrow) is remarkable.. and so are the movie effects, The computer generated imagery is so good .. it seems as if not generated by computers.
Watch it with your family, kids, your love, or with your college mates. This is Hollywood at it’s entertaining best !!!
