Onto the third movie in the order and after the Incredible Hulk I need something good to watch and because I have seen this movie before I know what I am getting into to. Anyway, it is time for a review.
After revealing to the world that he is in fact Iron Man Tony Stark is facing competition to try and copy his suit. It is because of this that the government are getting scared that the man who is saving them is not part of the Army they are trying to force him to give up his suit to them so they are able to copy them. Tony’s argument is that no one is even close to him and is at least 10 years away from being able to copy his current suit idea. Little does he know on the other side of the world the son of tony stark’s old friend knows how to build an arc reactor exactly like the one in Tony’s chest and is using it to come after him in order to get closure on his family name.
Now compared to the first Iron Man this story sound so much better. Now Tony Stark has got competition and he has to prove that he is needed and not just anyone is able to do what he does. Not only that but someone wants revenge on the Stark family all because of something that his dad had done to someone else. Plus when you start actually watching the movie you don’t want to stop as if you do then you might some of the action in this action packed movie. This is something that was missing from the Hulk as every Marvel movie I have ever watched makes the audience want to keep watching as they don’t want to miss a single moment. Even the parts that weren’t action and it was maybe just Pepper and Tony talking then you wanted to watch as you care about them as people and want to know if they are ever going to have a normal relationship or if it is always just going to be Pepper looking after Tony.
The acting is what makes the movie that much better, there were scenes exactly like the one above in the hulk but because of how bad the acting was I just didn’t care about either of them to want to watch fully.Robert Downey Jr doing his job superbly with Iron Man being the carefree guy to the public but behind closed doors you don’t understand what he is trying to go through. Gwyneth Paltrow doing her job amazingly going from just looking after Tony to being the CEO of his company. They change the actor behind Rhodey they have now went with Don Cheadle and personally this is a better choice of actor as when he is serious in this movie then you can actually feel it and want to do whatever he is saying. I never got that with Terrence Howard so to have a change is really nice.
The fighting scenes are simply something else in this movie, my personal favourite being the fight between Rhodey and Tony in the suits as we get to see them destroy Tony’s house as well as them just beat each other to a pulp. Trust me when I say that if you want an action movie done right then you have got to watch this as it has got simply everything you could want.
The next movie in the list is Thor and this is another movie I have yet to see in the list so I am really looking forward to it and just hoping it is not going to be the same as the Hulk.
I have been Aaron Morrsi and i’ll see you next time.
