Iron Man 3 Movie Reviews
User reviews on Iron Man 3
My boyfriend really wanted to see this film, he has been talking about it for months so I agreed to see it with him. I am not a big fan of films like this one, due to the fact that these films are usually pretty dumb and shallow. I decided to try to enjoy this film and went into the theater wit a certain mindset. The film was very fast-paced, the energy was very high and I have to say that it was quite entertaining (if you actively overlook illogical moments in the film). The film is definitely spectacular visually and I thought that he dialogue was quite witty. I love Robert Downey Jr. and I thought he did a great job in this film, he was made for this role, it suites him so well. Overall, this movie is fun to watch and it is big and quite stupid, I think it will appeal to a wide audience.
I was so excited to see this film and I am happy to say that it was amazing and I highly recommend seeing it in the theaters. The film was very entertaining and it is a perfect film for the summer, I had a great time watching it. The film felt fresh and it was quite funny and I thought it was brilliant visually. The film has some dumb moments but I did not expect it to be an intelligent film, I wanted to have fun while watching it and I did. The film was witty and charming and Robert Downey Jr. has to do a lot with it, he is just perfect for this role and I think he did his best work in this film. I really enjoyed the dialogue in this film and I liked that this film stood on his own and did not really draw from the previous films. Overall, I think it is a great Blockbuster film that will please a wide audience.
Ugh! Okay, I don't know why (well, I sort of know why) but I just CANNOT stand Gwyneth Paltrow! She just drives me berserk every time she shows her face in public and I just want to send her back into whatever vegan closet she came out of - ha! The only person even as close to annoying as she is is Anne Hathaway...and at least she can sing! I'm glad they managed to keep Pepper's role brief in this third Iron Man. Seriosuly, GP, you need to GOOP and go away for a while. Robert Downey was really funny in a lot of scenes, especially where he had to confront the weirdos in Tennessee. I was laughing a lot in these parts because I have family in Tennessee and yes, some of them are JUST like what was in the movie. I heard that this may be the last Iron Man movie, which is just as well. It's better than the second, but not as good as the first - time to say adios, Tony Stark!
Dear God, help me! When did the Summer movie season begin six weeks early?! Goodness, the kids aren't even out of school yet! I shouldn't complain that my kids asked - nee, DEMANDED - that I take them to see the third Iron Man because it really was an enjoyable movie. I just think that these super hero and comic book movies are getting to be a bit redundant, but then once in a while a good one arrives to remind you that the there are some good popcorn flicks out there worth taking your kids to and that you don't mind spending $50 bucks on admission and then another $50 at the concession stand....just kidding, sort of. Robert Downey is aces in this tole and he owns it wholesale. Gwyneth is classy as ever. But my favorite was Ben Kinglsey who played the evil Mandarin uber terrorist. That man can act in ANY role and I am glad my kids are now fans of his. Maybe now I can talk them into seeing Gandhi or Schindler's List...maybe!
Audiences will adore Iron Man 3 for the simple fact that it is a good ol’ fashioned comic book movie that doesn’t try to give its hero any grandiose or overly dark backstory a la Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight. It is fun F-U-N for fun’s sake, and doesn’t take itself too seriously in an effort to make itself an out-and-out entertainer.
We all know Tony Stark by now: he’s cheeky and witty and self-aware . . . and yet somehow always blind-sided by the bad guys. The baddies this time around are the nefarious global terrorist Mandarin (expertly played by Ben Kingsley) and his partner-in-crime/uber nerd scientist Aldrich Killian (Guy Pearce, in a truly memorable get-up). Together, they want to take over the world a la Pinky and the Brain, only their weapons of choice are the maimed and half-dead bodies of innocents who are turned from weak into wicked.
The movie gets a lot of laughs, especially when Stark finds himself crash-landed in Tennessee, where he really gets to go at it with his rival James Rhoades (Don Cheadle), all in that deadpan as only Robert Downey can deliver. Gwyneth Paltrow’s role as the romantic interest Pepper is mercifully restrained this time around. And all of it comes to a head in an epic showdown that any fans of the genre will say is well worth the ticket price (seriously: the climactic battle is truly a spectacle to behold).
And it goes without saying that the movie will almost assuredly find a way to rewrite box office history. A surefire blockbuster winner.
