Iron Man 3 (2013)

Iron Man 3 (2013)
Directed by: Shane Black
Country: USA

Review: Jon Favreau misses the direction of “The Iron Man 3” to the less experienced Shane Black (“Kiss Kiss Bang Bang”), with the consolation of having participated as actor in the small role of the unlucky security man Happy Hogan. The result is more and more action, but less consistency in the story, being very far from the great first movie from 2008. Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) continues available and ready for action though a bit less spirited. Now he has the difficult mission of liberate his beloved Pepper (Gwyneth Paltrow) and the American president from the hands of an evasive villain named The Mandarin (Ben Kingsley), a mix of Chinese warrior and Taliban terrorist who was the most remarkable character in the film. Some sparse funny situations, like Stark’s anxiety attacks, were added to a panoply of special effects, fierce scenes, and incredible stunts that will take Marvel’s fans to heaven, but in terms of script the film didn’t show strength or cleverness enough to stand aside from other movies of the genre. Shane Black’s eagerness for action was so exposed that it ended up making me tired in the last third part. There were too many Iron Men for my taste, as well as some stupid scenes, with Pepper revealing an unconvincing violent side as new heroin. The chaotic “Iron Man 3” is minimally amusing and doesn't add practically anything relevant to its prior sagas.
