First I think I need to make a confession. I am not a comic book geek. I had never cared much for Spiderman, Superman or any other super hero. It just wasn’t my cup of tea. But there is something about how Marvel does their superhero movies that makes it a totally delicious elixir.
I really like Thor, I could watch Joss Whedon’s The Avengers over and over and I was completely won over by their newest blockbuster, Iron Man 3. It’s a movie that has it all. Really. Check out the five reasons that Iron Man 3 totally rules right here. And me, I’m heading over to my nearest comic book store. Turns out I am super hero fan after all.
5 Reason Iron Man Rules 1 of 6
Three Words 2 of 6
There are three words that make Iron Man totally awesome: Robert. Downey. Jr.. Well, not words, but names. And those three names belong to one of America's best actors. The role of Tony Stark seems totally made for Robert Downey Jr., it truly is one of the best castings ever. In Iron Man 3, we meet a new Tony Stark, one who isn't just arrogant but who is prone to anxiety. A very human Iron Man.
The Rest of Cast 3 of 6
Although it would be easy to say that Robert Downey Junior steals the show, it's not true. The rest of the cast shines and brings an amazing array of powerful performances. My personal favorite is Ben Kingsley as the Mandarin. Ben Kingsley can do no wrong, but he really shines in this role.
The Action 4 of 6
You know those films that cause you to sit on the edge of your seat? Yeah, Iron Man 3 is one of those films. The action is so well choreographed and executed that you really feel immersed in every second. The 3D also helps make it's all seem so vivid and real.
The Humor 5 of 6
Barrel of Monkey. If you haven't seen the film, that won't really make sense, but if you have seen it, then you know that it's hilarious. Iron Man 3 has so many hysterical and super funny scenes and one liners, ones that will have you not just chuckling but laughing out loud, and loudly!
It Has Heart 6 of 6
This installment of Iron Man has a whole bunch of heart. There is love, there is emotional turmoil, and there is an adorable kid. But it doesn't get sappy, it's all balanced in a great way mixing the action, the emotions and the great acting into a great big blockbuster that is very much worth seeing.
