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



This movie hits Australia early on April 24. Early reviews are already starting to appear online.

I remember starting the discussion topic for the first movie so many years ago, and being pleasantry surprised at how well it turned out. Robert Downey Jr was a real find and the movie was instrumental at starting the whole Marvel Cinematic Universe. Everyone now is looking forward to seeing how Phase 2 goes after Phase 1 was concluded with Avengers last year. I hope this movie will be awesome!

Anyone here save the topic before it was deleted/purged? I was hoping to reread the whole thing.

I loved IM3. There are a few things I think die-hard Iron Man fans might get pissed about, but it's a solid flick. Good action, very funny, exciting, surprising...and an awesome end credits sequence. I felt a bit like dancing.

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

I really wish Adi Granov was available to work with Phil Saunders on the armors like in IM and IM2. IM3's armor looks like attempts at Halo and Gundam aesthetics, and it's disappointingly generic in comparison.

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

Saw it last night, man that was awesome.

Here is my full review (both a non-spoiler and a spoiler one).

Iron Man 3 is a seamless mesh of humour, action and drama which deepens Tony Stark’s character whilst providing a lot of laughs and explosions along the way.
That's a basic summation of my feelings. I was very impressed. There were a few things I didn't see coming at all and I thought the climactic battle was superb.

One weird thing about the showing I went to - it was midnight and it was pretty busy, but presumably if you go to a midnight showing of a film you're a pretty big fan so you'd be aware that at the end of Marvel films there's a scene after the credits. Yet so many people left right as the film ended

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

It's a fine, entertaining movie, with some solid acting from pretty much everyone.

Iron Man 3 is a strange movie, though, a Frankenstein monster which seems to be made of the best parts of several different action films which don't quite fit together: superhero movies, spy movies, buddy cop movies, comedies, and I think it's only through the magic of Robert Downey Jr. performance that the whole thing holds together.

Oh, I can explain it....the gimmick is stale. It was novel in the first Iron Man, still had some life in it by the second movie. But by the time Thor rolled around people were getting tired of having to sit all the way through long credit sequences. And why should they when they can just watch it on YouTube. I know I did.

While Green Lantern was a clusterfuck, the one thing they did right was showing their stinger about a quarter of the way into the final credits.....as did Avengers with the Thanos reveal. I figured that even Marvel understood that as time passed, the willingness to sit through the entire credits just to see 30 seconds, would decrease with even the hard core audience.

They need to just go the GL and Avengers route in the future.

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

I guess, although I figure if you're willing to stay up til 230ish you can wait an extra few minutes.

I do agree it was frustrating that it was all the way at the end. To me it makes sense to put it after the animated bit of the credits.

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

These little vignettes are not essential to the story. They're a little extra for those who are dedicated enough to watch the whole credits. If you're patient, you get a little something in return, if you're not, no big deal. Those who feel that the incentive for being patient should come SOONER don't quite get it.
