Iron Man 3

iron-man-3-reviewAt an instant in the film, Tony Stark says it’s going to be plain old fashioned revenge and the movie Iron Man 3 is a kickass piece of work that is made on this simple idea. Honestly this is one of the coolest super hero movies I have seen in the recent past and by presenting a trailer which was quite grey, the makers have given an absolute surprise entertainment package to the audience.

The plot here has connections to the past of Tony Stark where he had rifts with a scientist Aldrich Killian who wanted to establish a scientific firm (AIM) along with Stark. At present USA is facing threats from a terrorist Mandarin who is creating serial blasts.  With AIM supporting Mandarin in his efforts it’s up to Stark to make the scene calm, as he invited more trouble by disclosing his address to Mandarin. The attacks of Mandarin and the fight back of Iron Man who almost lost everything including his girl is what the third part basically all about.

Well, what makes this movie an entertainer is the coolness of the protagonist in any kind of situation and also the making that never gives those inspiring goose bumps. The package here offers complete entertainment from top to bottom regardless of the scenarios that changes its tone. The dialogs and gestures are so humorous that you wish to see Iron Man in every frame with something coming out of his mouth. The Puppet Villain, The little boy who creates the anxiety attack, the monkey game in the sky, Starks gift for Pepper, The new suit that just doesn’t go how Tony imagined and many other ingredients are there to make us laugh and applaud throughout this fun ride.

On screen, as someone said Robert Downey, Jr acts as if he was born to play the role of Iron Man and the way he keeps the cool meter going steadily is simply amazing. Gwyneth Paltrow is comfortable in her Pepper role. This time she also gets to do some serious action. Guy Pearce plays the antagonists role quite smartly and Ben Kingsly in his Mandarin avatar offers some serious fun. Don Cheadle as Col. Rhodes is also cool in his role.

In the making, Shane Black has crafted this one smartly. The screenplay written by him along with Drew Pearce never loses the energy and maintains action, anxiety and humor in the required level. A few places are there which lacks clarification like what happens with Pepper after all what she went through. Even though it was narrated through voice, a visual presentation would have made it much better. Cinematography is good and the VFX section has done a commendable job. The stunt choreography with those undisciplined suits is something hilarious in this segment.

Overall, Iron Man 3 is a perfect entertainment package for all those who like the movies in this segment. With Tony Stark and his boys giving ample time for us to smile, laugh and applaud, the chances are quite less that you will feel disappointed.  I am giving 4/5 for this outing of “the mechanic”. Highly recommended.
