Unfortunate but without a pity, IRON MAN 3 underwhelms me of seeing that the premise for the new lacklustre sequel is unfolded makes me want to less proclaim it in a serious occasion. Ben Kingsley is the reason why I'm disappointed, he was a good actor and I was thrilled that he would act as the protagonist's main nemesis and most difficult foe The Mandarin and be like all the other English villains, but I was sadly not pleased when the character Kingsley was portraying is actually a nobody. I was shocked, it really starting my nerves to bust and makes me of not deserving false advertising that pranks everybody. In the midst of its controversy, Robert Downey Jr. is still appreciated for his role as Iron Man and the action, visuals and another appropriated actor Guy Pearce's performance are more privileged than the useless twist of the story-line. 

It’s a semi-bad ending of a final conclusion that all great chapters end like this aren't made anymore and they got IRON MAN 3 into the deep package. It should be very crucial to the people and fans of this unimaginable black sheep and I feel sorrow that it failed to live up the previous instalments but I'm still not a big fan of the character and the result was indifferent.

Star rating: (3/5) Average 


  1. Definitely the superior successor to the last one in regards of character development and involvement, great humor, and satisfying action sequences. Good review.

    1. You have a better opinion than mine, my review thatn you've looked at is supposed to be very average and unlikable.
