Good movie but grossly overrated
To all those who have watched it: I hope you enjoyed it as much as I do.
This is one of the best movies I’ve seen in a very long time. You have to go and see this on the big screen.
Great movie. Not sure what people expected but I found it highly entertaining.
Iron Man 3 starts off strong, but it gets weaker and weaker as the movie moves along. It seems to depend on smoke (witty dialogue) and mirrors (cool action sequences) to distract audiences from the convoluted storyline and the occasional plot hole. Even Robert Downey Jr., as entertaining as he is, seems to be coasting through this film. Plus, in the end, they try and quickly wrap everything up in a tidy trilogy package and it just doesn't work. This movie is on par with Iron Man 2, but it's nowhere near the greatness of the original Iron Man film.
I now completely understand how much MCU movies are overrated by the wider audience, especially by the HC fans. I've watched Black Panther, now I've watched this and I realised how mediocre this movies are, but still they made a huge amount of money and have a great rating on IMDB. This movie offers nothing special, the story offers next to nothing, the anti-heroes have never been worse, the CGI is bad, the way everyone fires up like the fire guy from Fantastic 4 makes me wanna puke, the ending is boring and Iron Man for some reason, I guess on purpose, is way less involved in action sequences and drama than the previous movies which makes the movie worse than they planned... oh well, 5/10 for me.
The action scenes were very cool, but the story didn't make much sense and there were way too many characters and stories crammed together. It was better than the second, but not as good as the first.
The Iron Man films are like pizza: even if the product itself isn't as good as the last one you had you get a full-belly's worth of nourishment and satisfaction all the same. Marvel manages to make decent movie after decent movie almost with all-too-much precision. They have a working formula of 'hero being more interesting than the villain' and unfortunately Killian is simply too un-compelling a villain to be invested in; he's there because he's played by Guy Pearce. With that said, Robert Downy Jr. gets time to shine as a desperate Tony Stark who has to take on baddies without his iconic suit.Iron Man Three is not the best of the MCU films but it's still a good action film nonetheless.
