SPOILER inside....

The Mandarin is not really the Mandarin.

I can see a huge backlash.

I liked the twist a lot, and Sir Ben is AMAZEBALLS as the Mandarin! Maybe not what fanboys expect, BUT that's what was so brilliant about it. The rest of the movie is quite good although they should have eased on the action in favour of some great character scenes. That's what made the first movie so special after all! Nonetheless it's a great movie and worth checking out. I think Marvel is moving more and more into the direction of generic comic book action movies and less towards something for mature audiences.

Is the second one worth seeing? I just saw the first one on tv last week and rather enjoyed it but maybe that's enough for me.

Scond one was awful. That is why Favreau didn't direct this one.

I've tried multiple times to get through the 2nd one but ended up falling asleep every time. Could be the weed. This 3rd one though actually looks like it might be good.

So what's the twist? Who is Kingsley really playing?

I just wish Robert Downey Jr. would O.D. so we can finally be rid of his smarmy face for good.

Seriously. I'm sick of this old douche. And he's just too old at this point for the role.

My buddy in England saw Iron Man 3 and says it's awesome. Can't wait til it gets to the States. Yeehah!

I'm am in agreement with r7. RDJ is a smug bastard who would be dead with no career if it wasn't for his famous dad.

[quote]Who is Kingsley really playing?

Some out-of-work actor hired by the main villain (Guy Pearce) to act as some big bad terrorist. He's in it just for the women and booze.

Welcome to the Summer moviegoing season! Fanboys get a lot to jizz over in the next few months - Star Trek, Wolverine, Superman Man of Steel.

IM2 was a POS. And I hate Goop, so not going to see IM3 till it's on NF.

I can't believe they killed Gweneth Paltrow.

If that's the case R13, this should be the number one movie at the box office for years to come.

Aw, I was kinda hoping for some super powered fabulous jewelry!

I take RDJ anytime over Pitt, Affleck, DiCaprio, Cruise, Depp and the usual lame A Listers. At least he can act!

She did not die r13.

by Anonymousreply 1605/06/2013

Maybe not R17 but Gwynnie feels quite deeply that Peps deserves her own sequel.

Have y'all watched Kingsley doing his promo talk show appearances? He really does make people address him as Sir Ben. I had thought that was trash talk from a bitter ex-wife.

by Anonymousreply 1805/06/2013

Was it really surprising who Mandarin turned out to be? I thought it was pretty obvious from the first scene. Are people really calling this a "twist"?

by Anonymousreply 1905/07/2013


Goopy is going to be Pepper Potts as long as RDJ will play Tony Stark. I am pretty sure he wants her to be in future movies. They were super cute together during the promotion tour. Seems they are really good friends. I find the constant pointless hating against Goop way more annoying than her. I actually find her pretty cool, honestly.

Ugh political correctness. They did not want the Mandarin to be like he is in the comics, they felt it was too racist.

by Anonymousreply 2105/07/2013

Add me to the list of overexposed RDJ haters.

by Anonymousreply 2205/07/2013

Yeah RDJ is not as funny as he thinks he is. They didn't want to be racist but didn't care about the many gun deaths...

"Ugh political correctness. They did not want the Mandarin to be like he is in the comics, they felt it was too racist."

How deluded of you. They did it so they wouldn't alienate the Chinese movie going public. It was entirely motivated by money. You think the makers of Iron Man, which began as a pro-Vietnam war comic give a shit about "political correctness?" I guess you don't know they filmed extra scenes with Fan Bing Bing precisely to get more money in China/Asia. I love it how conservatives like to paint Hollywood as this enormous pinko commie loving town when the movie business is one of the biggest American industries and it's ALWAYS about the money.

I saw Iron Man 3 this week, and it was really a fun romp. IM2 was absolute shit, as others have noted, but this was a great popcorn flick. No important message -- it's all about vengeance -- but it's very well done, with some surprisingly witty writing along the way.

by Anonymousreply 2505/08/2013














When Pepper 'dies' RDJ's reaction is really weak. He doesn't even shed a tear and he's making jokes about a minute later.I knew the limo driver would be in a coma most of the movie Too many senseless death by guns esp the mother of the vet..

R26 Iron Man 2 was not as bad as some people say. It had at least great character scenes, something IM3 is completely missing (except for Sir Ben). The villain story in IM2 was a bit lame and somehow not very original. The overall story was a bit rushed and the Avengers build up was forced into the story, which made it a bit messy. But I still think IM3 is the worst of the series, a complete mess in terms of plot and believability of the story. Can't blame RDJ if he does not want to continue anymore.
