So I finally got to see Iron Man 3 yesterday with my best friend and girlfriend.......
...Yeah, that's about right. XD
I absolutely loved it. I'm terrible at ranking things, but I'd say it was just as good as the other two at least. I loved the humorous moments, especially the totally unexpected ones. I loved that the story didn't just copy the villain theme of The Dark Knight Rises. It seemed like it would, with Aldrich Killian playing the suave, businessman-type villain and The Mandarin playing the gritty, in-your-face villain...but I can't say any more without spoiling it. I'll just say I'm glad my expectations were exceeded and I didn't see a lot of the twists coming.
I also loved that they did something different with the villains' modus operandi. Rather than more bad guys in bigger, badder Iron Man suits, we have the Extremis-powered super soliders. I love these guys' shtick. This leads to a very different and spectacular type of final battle for the climax, and man is it awesome.
It was a very neat and smart touch, exploring the effect Tony's near death experience in The Avengers has had on him. That kind of ordeal is not something you can just laugh off, and it could have easily been ignored in this movie, so I'm glad it wasn't.
I have to say the only part of the movie I didn't like was that there were no AIM scientists wearing the yellow beekeeper suits. Yeah, that's the only thing. XD I just really like those yellow beekeeper suits. [link]
So, Iron Man 3. 'Twas excellent. Go see it. Next up on my list is Star Trek: Into Darkness! 8D Looking forward to seeing Bendict Cumberbatch as a villain.
