It's been a while. Hello my dear readers, I'm very glad to inform you that I have finished my finals, and I'm officially on a semi-summer vacation since I do still have some IGCSE's. Anyways, I got the chance to watch Iron Man 3 this weekend, and I enjoyed it.....alot. As you may or may not know, I am a HUGE Batman fan so it's only natural that I have this mild hatred for Marvel characters, but hey, I won't let that get in the way of my opinion on a movie.
So anyways, Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) is suffering from panic attacks and anxiety because of the events from The Avengers. Nonetheless, as a new foe, The Mandarin (Sir Ben Kingsley) arises, it's up to Tony to fight his inner demons and protect the security of himself and that of the United States of America.
First of all I would like to say that Robert Downey Jr. is one of my all time favorite actors and I believe that he was literally born to play Tony Stark/Iron Man, I honestly can't think of any other person that can portray Tony other than him. The plot is definitely more interesting than the first two in my opinion and it this time, it's personal in every meaning of the word. There's definitely more gadget galore going on in this movie, and as a technology freak, I could do nothing but appreciate that. Another thing I appreciated was the amount of humor that was injected in the movie, it's honestly unexpected and it did make me laugh maybe a little too much in the theater (yeah, I was getting death stares from some people). Also, the plot is twisty, which is always a good thing because it makes the movie unpredictable, and you guys know how I feel about predictable movies. Iron Man 3 is a pure popcorn flick, definitely not Oscar material in my opinion but it's just a very entertaining movie, I was really satisfied with the outcome and it really exceeded my expectations.
So, what are you waiting for? Get out of the house, go to the theater, grab some Dr.Pepper and a bucket of popcorn, and ENJOY. I promise you guys won't be disappointed with the outcome, and I'm positive that you'll be just as entertained as I was, oh and stick around for the post credits scene, a very unexpected character will make an appearance. By the way, my Metropolis DVD finally (it took two months) arrived today, it comes with the restored version of the movie and a 50-page booklet, how spectacular!
