Iron Man 3

Iron Man 3
Directed by Shane Black. With Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce and Ben Kingsley

I saw this movie the second week it was out but I just have not had a chance to write up this review. Now the trailer definitely did the movie justice. I enjoyed it overall. Tony Starke had some touching and self reflective moments that I appreciated and made him more real as a person. The action sequences were hot and since I enjoy a good dose of mass destruction in movies, I really liked all the stuff blowing up. However, there are some plot issues that takes away from the film especially if you are a fan of the Iron man comics.

As much as I enjoyed Ben Kingsley's performance- he was menacing and scary and humorous and just freaken awesome- I really really really detest what they did with the Mandarin. Really?! That is all I am going to say about that. I will end with Guy Pearce (he does good villain), Don, Gwyneth and Robert all gave great performances.

Rating: B- (a minus for the Mandarin crap)
