Just got back. GREAT stuff, a worthy sequel to the first indeed. Thought the Mandarin twist was brilliant, loved how they ressurected the claw robot at the end.

If Ben Kingsley was not such a fantastic actor, the Mandarin twist wouldn't have come off so well but with him? Fucking gold and it emphasized the methodical and total lack of scruples from AIM, which made them even more credible. Rather ironic, AIM are jobbers in the comics and the Mandarin is pretty fucking deadly with all 10 Rings, commanding massive amounts of power.

People often complain that superhero flicks are too predictable because of the source material being known and yet when everything is turned on it's ear, to beautiful effect, they complain about that as well. I'd say comic book purists are as bad as wrestling marks but they tend to be one in the same.

This movie getting 1 billion and glowing critical reviews - baffling.

Re: Iron Man Rises - May 3rd, 2013 (April 26th for lucky bastards in the UK)

Actually saw this a week ago for my birthday. Felt it was pretty enjoyable overall, but there's a bunch of things that could've made it so much more.

One thing I liked about the film was that it finally started putting emphasis on the suit itself. I think that's what holds this movie up above the others; that it's finally about Iron Man instead of Tony himself. Although not having read the comics or seen any alternative media related to the suit, I don't walk into an Iron Man film expecting it to consist of an hour and a half of Robert Downey Jr. acting smug, or at least not when I look at the posters or trailers. I was also intrigued how they experimented with this aspect as well, what with the army of suits assisting Tony in the climax, which created a very energetic, larger-scale feel to the final battle.

One of things I found a bit strange was that the character of Tony doesn't really encounter any personal demons that he needs to overcome within the film. The whole panic-attacks subplot never amounted to much, nor was it ever resolved. The whole idea of not spending enough time with Pepper eventually benefited him in the end by giving him the time to make all those suits, so there wasn't much to complain about all things considered. No, there is a villain which he must defeat, and he does so. It's a little too much of a simplistic formula, imo.

As well as this, the whole relationship between him and the kid never amounted to much either, I never saw much of a purpose in the ex-girlfriend character that returns to Tony, and Tony not really being prepared for a terrorist attack even though he gave out his fucking home address was kind of moronic, like CP stated a few posts back.

But besides that, I felt the film was a worthwhile experience, moreso than I expected, even. The acting (with the distasteful exception of the tree that is Pepper's actress) was pretty top notch, it was paced well, the cinematography was very good, and the script didn't bother me as much as other Marvel films have.

Re: Iron Man Rises - May 3rd, 2013 (April 26th for lucky bastards in the UK)

Just got back from watching this, I thought it was just okay. I say it's better than the second Iron Man, but the first is still probably the best in the series. Although this third one felt somewhat bigger (possibly due to the budget) than all single Marvel Studios films except Avengers. The film made me laugh in some parts. I even laughed at the Mandarin twist part, but I still cant decide whether it was me laughing at the twist or because it was so bad that it's good. I don't read much Iron Man comics, so I can't say if "The Mandarin" was true to the comics, but I am open to different takes on the character. I understand why he was used as the face of evil to aid the real "bad guy" Aldrich Killian. I have to add that Aldrich was a pretty bland villain for the most part. The visual effects and some of RDJs comedy were probably my favorite parts, but I wasn't invested in the story unfortunately. It was a fun family friendly movie, but I probably won't pay to see it again.

It was ok or maybe even borderline good, but I couldn't get past the mandarin thing, call me a purist or a cynic or whatever, I just didn't care for it. Kingsley was great and it was pulled off well, but I wanted and expected The Mandarin and we got a glowing Guy Pearce as the primary antagonist. Just fell flat for me.



Do I really have to say anything?
