Iron Man 3 (2013)
Worst Marvel Movie
I should start out to say that the Iron Man movies are my least favorite part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the first film is good but its boring, the whole second act is just Tony Stark building the suit but what makes up for it is the action and acting. The second film I don't think is all that bad, its actually kinda fun, but I do have problems with it. But now we have this film and boy is this a huge disappointment.
The trailers were complete lies, they were building up for a plot we were expecting and instead we get a ridiculous amount of comic relief, horrible and useless characters, and plot holes galore.
Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark in this movie is so unpleasant, he plays off everyone in a ridiculous way and his one liners are getting so old by this point and I'm convinced he's taken this role to his head. Gwyneth Paltrow is bland and looks bored to be here, Don Cheadle is wasted in this movie, he doesn't do anything, same goes for Rebecca Black.
The villains are a complete joke. Ben Kingsley plays "The Mandarin" who is Iron Man's arch-enemy in the comics and here he plays a drunken idiot who is really an actor. What they do to this character here is unforgivable. I will admit Kingsley does great for the role he's given here, but if I were him, I would of thrown the script in Shane Black's face. Guy Pierce does his usual slimy performance as the most clichéd villain ever. There's also another bad guy played by Miguel Ferrier but his character development is so flat, he's forgettable.
Shane Black's direction is awful and so is his writing, he's so out of his element here. The visual effects though are good and so is a little bit of Brian Tyler's score, but everything else is so horribly done. The writing is a complete unfunny joke. And unlike the other installments in the MCU, nothing significant happens in this film. Also the ending completely contradicts the entire plot of Iron Man 2.
Bottom line, this movie is a complete utter mess and lovers of this film are just willing to gobble it all up because its Iron Man and I'm not going to sucker into this film like them.
