Well, the summer movie season if officially kicked off with the release of 'Iron Man 3.' I commend it for being a sequel to the individual 'Iron Man' series rather than reference 'The Avengers' too much. This is Tony's story.
Shane Black (writer/director) has always been a favorite of mine. His style is always edgy and cheesy at the same time, but it's a perfect marriage.
It was enjoyable, yet strayed from a formula that usually is audience pleasing. Without giving a full review, I'd like to say, personally, I'm kind of torn on it. It takes controversial twists and turns that feel like they undermine the story. However, a lot of the action scenes were creative and it was cool to see Tony take things in such a personal manner making him reckless (much like Martin Riggs). I like that they brought a good amount of humor into this. Tony Stark's attitude with everything is always what makes these movies entertaining.
But what about you out there? How did you feel about this movie? Did it exceed your expectations? Did it disappoint you? Vote below!
E.J. is just a simple man who loves movies. Don't judge.
