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

"There were a lot of WTF moments in this movie. For instance, Tony was willing to face a terrorist strong-hold without armor (using make-shift weapons from Home Depot), and we later find out that he has 41 suits ready to go at a moment's notice."

I think this was explained in the movie. It took awhile for Jarvis to get fully operational again, and for the construction crews to clear enough wreckage to uncover the opening to the Iron Vault.

BTW I just remembered that this movie name-dropped AIM and Roxxon, which was awesome!

Roxxon was also featured in Iron Man 2, they owned/sponsored one of the Formula One cars at the Grand Prix.

Above average.

It was worth seeing, and it had some fun and funny moments.

On the down side, I won't be falling all over myself to see it again, which is the main reason I can't rate it any higher.

I knew I wasn't going to totally dig it the moment it was clear that the bad guy was basically a Buddy Pine/Syndrome type, which was evident to me about five minutes in.

Also, there was nothing suspenseful at all in anyone being with the good or bad guys, including Maya and the VP. Those two were given away early with various tells, respectively by the bombs with no bomb parts and by the number somehow getting planted on the President's cell phone with only one other noteworthy character in the Executive Branch, yet on some level the film kept acting as if there was mystery.

It was better than IM2, but not as good as IM1.

Why was Rebecca Hall, half way through, talking about how she had to obey "The Master" as if the Mandarin was real when she was alone with Guy Pierce?

You could see a Roxxon building in the background during Stark's battle with Stane in the first movie, and "A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Thor's Hammer" took place at a Roxxon gas station.

yeap, Jarvis definitely updates Tony saying that the wreckage has been cleared away.

I liked it better than IM2 but had to feel disappointed that I was sold the Mandarin but was delivered The Melter.

Was she in on that part of it? Even Killian called him that when there were others within hearing.

I, for one, am very happy with the way the Mandarin turned out! Very happy surprise! It still makes me giggle. I've never read any of the comics and the movie is pretty much all I know about Iron Man.

I loved the way they handled it. Trevor was brilliant and totally unexpected.

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

I haven't seen the movie yet, but know enough about what they did to say that it's basically what George Lucas did with Palpatine and the Prequel Trilogy, but on a grander, much more secretive scale; it'd be like Sidious (Palpatine) having stayed completely in the shadows throughout the events of TPM and AotC before revealing himself to Anakin and the Jedi in RotS.
