Courtesy to Nuffnang, I get to watch Iron Man 3 Premier Screening last night. Like finally! A movie I have been anticipating. Not because the movie itself but because of Robert Downey Jr character as Tony Stark who never been bored.
Marvel’s “Iron Man 3” pits brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds. When Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy's hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle. With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him. As he fights his way back, Stark discovers the answer to the question that has secretly haunted him: does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man?
For a quick conclusion, Iron Man 3 not that awesome but still enjoyable and leave you WOW for a moment. Just disappointed on the weak villain. As a fans of Iron Man, I do research abit on the comic character itself and pretty disappointed with the difference compare with the movie. Of course they couldn't follow the comic 100% because in comic, Marvel's is a very big universe that lead to alot arcs and also superheroes. Still, thumb up to Shane Black for the Iron Man 3.
What's difference compare the Iron man 3 with the comic? Well for starter, Iron Patriot is not a repaint version of War Machine. Iron Patriot is a stand alone character, real identity is Norman Osborn who later establish Dark Avenger (I wish this could be make into movie..). Mandarin supposingly has 10 ring which come with difference magic power but unfortunately those ring does nothing int he movie. The mandarin itself is an loser as well. Aldrich Killian is just a scientist in comic who developed Extremis with Maya Hansen and later suicide instead of becoming one of the immortal soldier like in movie and claim himself is Mandarin.
Alright back to story. I pretty like the story that focus alot on Tony Stark and Pepper Potts development. Well Pepper Potts got bigger role in this movie and also the relationship between her and Tony was well display. Not much Iron Man suit action until the end of the final battle (you know you all will orgasm looking all Tony Stark Iron Suit controlled by Jarvis). Love it how Tony handle and go to action without his suit. Guess that answer him whether does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man. Sadly James Rhodes/War Machine/Iron Patriot doesn't play much important role in the movie. Such a waste of paint on Iron Patriot.
Robert Downey Jr contract with Marvel is end. But of course, he will return in The Avenger 2 or maybe a little bit in The Galaxy Guardian? How about Iron Man 4? Who know. Definitely a worth watching movie! So fans, complete ur Iron Man trilogy now at cinema ;) I am waiting for Thor : The Dark World next!
