I won't elaborate on this.
At one point, I felt like i was watching Scary Movie: Superhero Edition. I thought i was maybe watching an Iron Man spoof. Even Spiderman doesn't make that many jokes.
I love some jokes to break the tension, but even after Pepper "died" Tony was dropping one liners. Wayyyyy, over the top. Even the Banner cameo was just a joke.
I'll just group these two together. At the beginning of the movie, Killian's henchman survives a huge explosion. When Stark is at the bar, you can assume the female henchman dies during an explosion. During the end of the movie, Pepper survives a massive "explosion." On the plane, Stark kills Killian's henchman with a blast to the chest, while Iron Pat doesn't even phase 2 henchmen with multiple bullets to their chest.
Lastly, Killian is much much more powerful than any of his men injected with the same virus. I guess this is because he created it? It's never explained, but I guess i can live with that. What I can't live with is how he "gains" powers at his convenience.
Super healing factor? Okay, thats fine. Super strength? Okay, i guess that can be part of the healing factor somehow. Super speed? Uhhh. Okay i can't explain this one. Maybe something to deal with the healing factor? Someone needs to tell Wolverine about this. Fire breathing? Not really sure where this came from.
Not to mention the fact that one touch to any Mark suit by anyone infected with the virus completely crippled/rendered the suit useless.
According to this, Im convinced Johnny Storm would demolish Iron Man.
Why was he even in this movie? The 10 year old child had a bigger role than him.
There are about five Avengers references throughout the movie. Tony Stark is presumed dead by the public. Do the Avengers not care? What are they doing? Really wish they would have made this clear. Just make up some BS excuse and ill be satisfied.
This is NOT an 'Iron Man' movie. This movie should be called 'Tony Stark'. Now, I understand they are showing the psychological side of Tony, but they really nerfed his suits in this. The public is obviously driving/taking over Iron Man at this point, and usually the public don't know what they want. The public ruined Spiderman, but if its Tony Stark's humor they want, it's Tony Stark's humor they'll get.
7) Not sure if I missed this, but what was his motive? I understand he didn't like Tony, but aside from that. I heard him say something about controlling the war on terror, but I'm not sure what he was wanting to do. And then he was in cahoots with the VP. So..... did he want to rule the world or something? I completely missed what he was planning on doing. Maybe it wasn't explained.
Tony Stark raiding the "military" compound with some homemade weapons was kind of silly. This is something only Bruce Wayne would be able to pull off.
I also don't know why Stark didn't just buy a couple of guns in the hick town he was in.
I guess this wasn't a huge deal, but it was really silly to me.
I'm sure I've forgotten a few things since the premiere, but these are the few that stuck out in my mind
I DID find the movie entertaining, but it had the same entertainment value to me as a movie like Fast and Furious or Transformers. Iron Man 3 didn't have a progressive story aside from Starks mental battles, which took all of about 10 minutes. This movie would have made a decent sequel, but for a threequel, no way.
