Iron man 3: "Good movie, but won't live up to the hype",
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Iron Man 3 (Two-Disc Blu-ray / DVD + Digital Copy) (Blu-ray)
Iron Man 3 was a step in a better direction then Iron Man 2. Except the movie felt generic, bland, and lackluster. The movies story was mediocre, just enough to move the movie along. Then it felt like certain action sequences were added for the sake of action sequences.
For non comic fans the switch with the Mandarin not being a real villain, simply an actor may have been okay. Unfortunately I know a bit about the Mandarin and he is one of the best villains for Iron Man. Which was disappointing that he was wasted in the manner he was.
However even with the movies mishaps Robert Downey Jr. delivers another performance to life. The movie was vastly entertaining and enjoyable. The humor and action were placed correctly, in a way that the movie doesn't feel long. Which make it a fun movie to go see.
When the movie is done you won't be like "Whoa! That was amazing" or "Whoa! What a horrible movie." You'll be left somewhere in the middle, where you won't be sorry you saw it but it isn't anything to write home about either. It was a step in the right direction for the character though hopefully it continues to get better and doesn't turn into Iron Man 2.
