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.

The bombings in the middle east was very vague IIRC. They could still run with the idea that the real Mandarin is still out there. Notice how you only saw the rings in the videos and nowhere else?

Then again, I doubt RDJ will want to do anymore Iron Man movies.

God, yeah. Who'd want the pressure of making another $50 million by being himself?

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

During a Shane Black interview he clearly stated that the rings are symbolic and nothing more.

The list is ripped off from comicbookgirl19 with tits and shaved side head.

The only thing annoying about the movie was the kid. The rest was just silly fun.

meh he shouldn't have directed anyway the rings in iron man 3 were symbolic because they weren't the real rings

anyway even if they did do an iron man 4 i doubt the mandarin would make a return they'd want a new villain i bet

Avengers had just the perfect amount of comical relief.

There was just way too many in this movie. It got annoying for me.
I thought the twist was stupid too. The first movie was still the best Iron Man movie.

Definitely did not live up to it's hype.

I just watched this with my son, who loves Iron Man. He got up half way through the movie and played other games instead. I was determined to see it through, but was left underwhelmed.

This is what the plot to Iron Man 3 should have been. I had a better time reading this than watching the movie.
