Re: "Iron Man 3" Review and Discussion Thread (spoilers)

Thought it was pretty good, but unfortunately I thought the second half still suffered from the same kind of aimless and unfocused storytelling the second movie did.

And for whatever reason the whole Extremis thing didn't grab me either. The villains made of lava or fire who could heal themselves instantly felt more like something from an X-Men movie. And while I had no attachment to the comic book Mandarin, I couldn't help but feel disappointed that instead of the scary terror mastermind that had been built up, we were just stuck with the hammy Guy Pearce as the main villain.
