Do yourself a favor, watch Iron Man 3 to feel the punch!
“A hero must fall to rise up.” Iron Man 3 was entertaining with high-class 3D effects and stunning CGI along with riveting performance by Robert Downey Jr.
Iron Man 3 narrates the story of how Tony Stark (played by Robert Downey Jr.)’s world is torn apart by dreaded terrorist, Mandarin (played by Ben Kingsley). To make it worse, Mandarin is supported by Stark’s fan-turned-foe, Aldrich Killian (played by Guy Pierce). Tony Stark fights back to rebuild and re tribute.
Taking over the director’s chair from Jon Favreau, Shane Black does a fantastic job in keeping Iron Man 3 series alive with sheer hard work and dedicated direction. The movie is narrated in flashback mode depicting how Stark’s friends and fans turns into arch-rival. It also reveals the changing personality of Stark from I-don’t-care attitude to a responsible person. Then enters Mandarin and Stark’s world turns upside-down by Mandarin’s brutal attack at his house. Stark is compelled to fight back and save the country from being destroyed by the atrocious Mandarin.
The story was good along with nice screenplay. Art direction was nice. Cinematography was excellent along with punching dialogues. The visual effects are the high-light of superhero flicks and Iron Man 3 is no different. The 3D effects were astonishing. CGI was stunning and couple of scenes are enthralling and is sure to excite you with adrenalin-pumping action scenes. Robert Downey Jr. is excellent. The way he suits up in Iron Man clad, the same way he gets into character of Iron Man as if it has been tailor-made for him. He is expressive and will leave you spellbinding with stupendous performance. Guy Pierce and Ben Kingsley were good as villains in the flick. Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle and Jon Farveau all do a fine job in their supporting roles.
Do yourself a favor, watch Iron Man 3 to get feel the punch. It is refreshing, exciting and enthralling.
