Iron Man 3


So I went and saw Iron Man 3 last night and was extremely pleased. Like I mentioned in my review of Iron Man 3 Prelude, you really don't need it read it to know what's happening in the movie. The only parts of the comic that are related are the 10 rings (that isn't really explained in detail), the Mandarin attempting to get War Machine's specs, and Tony's Iron Army. Overall the story was great even with the twist in the middle. I've never read Extremis story, but it seemed like that part of the movie might have been changed. They also changed War Machine into the Iron Patriot, which in the comics is Norman Osborn during Dark Reign. Then again because these are based on the Ultimate Universe vs. the Earth-616 so it could still be creative licensing with the Cinematic Universe. I probably fall into the field of simply didn't care in ComicVine's Comic Book Question of the Week Results: Iron Man 3's Twist. It really didn't make or break the movie for me. While yes I would have enjoyed seeing the movie without it, what they did with A.I.M. the Mandarin and Aldrich Killian. I also enjoyed the personalized and humanized Tony this time. The entire movie is not Iron Man vs. the bad guys, but Tony Stark vs. himself, the events from The Avengers, and the bad guys. For most of the movie you don't see him in his suit, this I find as a breath of fresh air. What makes this better is the impact when the Iron Man Army shows up even better. This is a must see in my eyes.

Did you see the movie? What did you think?
