Sorry, I know it's a bit late..
Iron Man 3 is by far the worst super hero movie I have seen
in my life time. The rescue scene of those 12 people falling a million stories
to their doom, psychological warfare of Tony after the Avengers incident and Downey Jr's phenomenal portrayal of Iron Man are the only positive aspects from the film. But other than that, this film resembled the same let-down and the same fail of Spider-Man 3.
1.The Annoying, Unnecessary Little Kid
This little kid approaches Tony and annoys him until Tony
likes him. Tony starts to connect with him more and more throughout the film
until BAM! he assigns him to help him build an armor while he is away. Tony
assists and walks the little kid in creating the armor (noting that this little
boy doesn't even have a background in technological and mechanical studies) in
a minute-long phone call. In the end of the film, I also noticed that we saw
dozens and dozens of Iron suits fly in to save Tony's and Pepper's ass. Here is
my issue, instead of telling the kid to build this armor, why didn't he instead
call up one of the suits he activated? And another note, how the hell does a
little kid who doesn't even know how to use a screwdriver build this suit that
took Tony days to construct with one 60-second phone call?
The Choice of Villain
Maybe Mandarin might've been an excellent choice for Iron
Man 1 or 2, but once you have introduced a villain that 5 beings with
superhuman abilities and the entire government was needed to seize this
villain, then you need to start creating villains that are relatively strong as
Loki. If a God that has perfected and mastered the works of magic ,and brought
in legions of aliens that threatened the world, has failed to meet the same
goal the "Mandarin" attempted to accomplish, how in the flying $%&@
does "the Mandarin" believe he will achieve?
So I saw Pepper as the same with IM2. She's supportive for
Tony and lets the audience know how much she loves him. She gets kidnapped by
the"real" Mandarin to be a test subject and succeeds. The Extremis
virus now lives within Pepper, gets thrown deep towards an abyss, and she's
dead. Fortunately, the Extremis virus rescued Pepper from death and rises to
kill the "real" Mandarin and save Tony's ass. Here is the issue,
Pepper is so $%&@in old and when I saw Pepper do all these flips and kicks in a
sports bra, I thought of it as the most cheesiest scene in all comic book
movies. They have totally overused a secondary character to this story and made
a supportive role become the main role (more main that Tony Stark) out of the
blue and just over $%&@in used it to be honest. Was it even necessary to make
Pepper's character like this? That's not the main issue thought, but it is one
of the reasons why I disliked it. To be honest, she looked a little too old to
even have a role this big and do actions so action-packed that I visioned it as
grandma kicking ass and couldn't take the film serious after the climax. The
main reason is that Marvel now has this supportive role as strong and as
powerful as all of the Avengers combined, even more!
Speaking of the Avengers...
What is the purpose of Phase 1, which is to build a Marvel
Cinematic Universe, if the follow-up film of the Avengers will be SHIELD or
Avengers-Free. I did not see a S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent in this movie. Some might
argue that Iron Man say that he wanted SHIELD out of the conflict which
explains they're absence, but SHIELD is a worldwide organization that fends
from others that try to cause chaos within Earth, no matter who says to back
off (i.e. the Avengers).
The Iron Patriot
Now that they have done this to the Iron Patriot, this
automatically eliminates the Dark Avengers/Dark Reign storyline to be told 
And last but expected, the Mandarin
Here we have a dude who has killed another dude LIVE ON TV.
You might have this ideology that he is a ruthless aggressor that no one should
$%&@ with. Fast forward 30 minutes, he turns out to be a puppet who falls
victim to alcoholism and appears to be nothing but a pimp. Out of all the
movies, geeks should freak out right in this spot and give up all hope in the
movie! The Mandarin is Norman Osborn to Tony's Spider-Man, the Joker to Stark's
Batman, but no, Marvel had to single-handedly $%&@ up the Marvel Universe by
doing this exact move and this exact movie. And to top it all off, the
"real" Mandarin was killed by a chick that suckerpunched this dude
who has the same powers as Pepper. The REAL Mandarin (not the !@#$%^&*ted,
assholic rich boy we got in IM3)
had such an
incredible background and the Extremis storyline was so glorious that it does
not deserve the injustice this stupid film portrayed.
I admire the beginning of the movie, the beggining-middle,
and its introduction. I love how the Battle of New York in the Avengers film
had honorable mentions in this movie and caused psychological scars to Tony.
The 12-man rescue scene and Robert Downey Jr's acting was phenomenal, sadly, I
couldn't say the same for the rest. I was heavily disappointed by Iron Man 2
and expected this to recover the Iron Man trilogy, but this movie was nothing
but a joke, literally. Maybe I am so pissed off at this film because I expected
more, maybe I am so pissed off at this film because it is so $%&@in overrated,
maybe I am so pissed off at this film because I watched it once, but only time
will tell once I rent (not buy, I will never buy this garbage of a movie in)
DVD, maybe I will have some sympathy, but until then...
