Let me start by saying I found the first two films better than the third. I am diehard Marvel hero fan and part of my dislike of the third installment is how they wrote the story. I mean sure it's Ok to write a story that is not based on the comics as is common now but if that were the case why include a comic character like Mandarin and turn him into a clown? Really I think the execs took people for a ride, the trailers were all showing the Mandarin hyping up fanboy fervor but when you watch the movie disappointment is an understatement.
The story was not engrossing either, the usual spurned genius turns psycho megalomaniac plot. I think people were duped by a few huge action scenes but I feel the first and second movies had fewer action scenes and yet were way better than this film. Is it really Robert's charm that got this movie to $1bn?
All Iron Man fans did the 3rd film get its due really?
