I watched it again hoping I'd like it the second time around but I didn't.
I kept thinking why his all his suits were suddenly so crappy. There's no consistency in the movies. In the first 3 movies his suits were practically indestructible. Especially in avengers when he takes on an entire army and was left with nothing but scratches on his suit.
I appreciated Ben kingsley's performance as both the mandarin and Trevor but I still wanted to see a real straight up bad ass mandarin. The first half before the twist was nothing more than a tease for me. He's such a great actor and played the part as the terrorist so well that I felt he could have been a memorable movie villain for a long time (ie. joker, magneto, maybe bane).
I've read extremis and loved it but I didn't feel like it translated well to screen.
Also didn't like how convenient getting in and out of the suits were. They opened from the front AND back. It wasn't too long ago (avengers) where he still needed robotic arms to take it apart piece by piece. He'll even the army was able to give the iron patriot the same technology.
Also how did the us army not know that Rhodes was taken captive? You would think they would be constantly monitoring his missions and hearing everything that goes on.
I felt they put way too many comic relief moments. Everyone including the henchmens would make a joke of some sort. It felt like a Jude apatow movie...but not nearly as funny. It had some good moments though. Posted via RS Mobile
the real mandarin is Guy Pearce and they can still make him heal up and then find the rings in asia or create the rings and hideout under one of Mandarins aliases (from the comic) in HK/China running a tong before he strikes again or runs into iron man
but i dont think they'll be doing another iron man for a long time they seemed to end it with the 3rd even with the credits using scenes from all 3 films
