Fine Ending to the Trilogy…Certainly Goes Out with a Bang
16 April 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The First Two Acts in the Third Instalment of Iron Man are an Excellent and Edgy Set-Up for the Final Act that Unleashes a Free-For-All, Slam-Bang, Action Exercise that Tries to Out Do All that has Come Before in Terms of Such Things. It Might Have Succeeded.

The Major Cast Members Are Back with Robert Downey Jr Lynch Pinning the Movie with More Angst About His New York Experience with The Avengers and Suffers Some Here but Still Manages to Wield the Wit. Don Cheadle has Grown Into the Role as Rhody/War Machine and has Quite a Bit of Screen time and Makes the Most of It and Gwyneth Paltrow's Pepper Gets to Put On the Suit.

Guy Pearce and Ben Kingsley are Not Surprisingly Welcome as Bad Guys in a Contemporary Story of Terrorist Insanity. Some Marvel Maniacs Have Wailed and Waxed Wildly About the Mandarin Character and it is a Matter of "Each His Own" Whether You Accept the Change or Not. It Could be Called a Cheat, but at the Very Least it is Unexpected and Works in its Slight of Hand.

Overall, it has Enough of a Cerebral Script to Balance the Over the Top Action and Explosions. Some of the Battles have Flourishes that are Outstanding Including a Skyjacking and Barrel of Monkeys Piece that is a Highlight. This is Another Fine Film from Marvel and Fits Comfortably in the Super-Hero Genre.
