Ironman 3: The Mandarin

??????????????????????

As you may know, Iron man 3 premiere in Los Angeles at the El Capitan Theatre last week, reaction of people who were watching it, mix, some like it and some don’t.  I don’t care what people said. There are lots of movies that are coming out this summer. I can’t wait to see the new Superman movie, it’s a reboot from the 1970’s where the special effects were being pioneer after the Star Wars premiere.

Like ordinary superhero Tony Stark (Robert Downy Jr. ) the billionaire entrepreneur built the ultimate superhero costume and from the previous movies, and he still has to iron his shirt. A little irony here, that’s ironic.

It will be a first when Pepper (Gwyneth  Paltrow) wore the Iron man robotic suit in the movie, from the red carpet premiere her outfit was gorgeous when she went commando. She needed the Ironman costume to cover up and keep warm.

Due to recent bombings last month, Don Cheadle (who plays Col. James Rhodes) stressing that the film was finished well before the bombings earlier this month, and that there is no political agenda.

“The job of this film is to entertain,” he said. “That’s what we’re hoping to do.”

The plotline about a terrorist known as The Mandarin (Ben Kingsley) cuts too closely to the Boston Marathon bombing allegedly carried out by the Tsarnaev brothers earlier this month. We have to separate from reality to fantasy and most likely we like to watch fantasy movies like Ironman 3, even though the violence looked real, but it is all visual effects that brings movie to life.  The 3D in the move was superbly done and it does not interfere with the story, it just enhances the visual action sequences.

The story goes brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds. When Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy’s hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle. With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him. As he fights his way back, Stark discovers the answer to the question that has secretly haunted him: does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man?

  1. Whether audiences initially respond well to it or not, a second viewing may be required to appreciate the scope and the risks that the film takes. Good review.
