What else can we say? Robert Downey Jr, a.k.a Tony Stark a.k.a Iron Man is….THE MAN!
We couldn’t think of anyone else who could step into the (metal) shoes and the (iron) body armour, and play the role any better than the guy. Though Iron Man 3 is largely about ‘boys and their toys’, with huge, extravagant and spectacular shows of macho-ism and arrogance, it also shows another part of Tony Stark and teaches people a thing or two about teamwork.
Yeah – two (or three) is definitely better than one – just look at how much help Mr Stark get from Pepper Potts, Harley the Kid, and Col. Rhodes.
Oh, and that teamwork display hanging on the air – simply awesome!
Tony Stark still displays his cockiness and arrogance in Iron Man 3, but he seems to have lost it as he puts out the challenge “You’re not a man. You’re nothing more than a maniac. I’m not afraid of you. No politics here: just good old fashioned revenge!” to The Mandarin for the bomb blast which sent his best friend, aptly named Happy, to coma.
And as it turns out, a billionaire (or is it a trillionaire?) like Tony Stark has problems like the rest of us laymen (and women) too. Anxiety, insomnia, commitment issues, flaws – well, there are indeed certain things that even money can’t buy huh?
Ben Kingsley, the awesome thespian also gets our thumbs-up for providing a ‘face of terror’, which made us all think that ‘fear of the unknown is the greatest fear of all’.
When “The Mandarin” said: “Ladies, children, sheep… Some people call me a terrorist. I consider myself a teacher. Lesson number one: Heroes, there is no such thing” – that alone sent shivers through our spine as the threat seemed really imminent, especially seeing how things are in the world at the moment.
It is, however, pretty weird seeing ‘Gandhi’ as ‘The Mandarin, the terrorist’ – but he plays the part down to the T.
By the way, Ben Kingsley plays the role of the peace-loving Gandhi in the movie err..”Gandhi” some time ago 🙂
The villain, Aldrich Killian (Guy Pearce) is the ‘mad scientist’ , the man-behind-the-scene – brilliant, but crazy and demented. Why is it always the smart, nerdy and geeky guys get to be the baddies, we wonder?
Iron Man 3 sees Tony Stark’s relationship with Pepper Potts going much further, and while it may seem that he’s calling all the shots, sometimes it’s her who wears the pants in the house.
That part towards the end..phooowwwaaarrr!!! You go girl!!
And at this point, we’re just so tempted to reveal everything about Iron Man 3. But nooo…you have to go and see it yourself.
Just a reminder though – remember to stay until the end of the credits…that’s all we can say 🙂
We watched Iron Man 3 at the TGV Cinemas, located at F1.MZN.1
Also, just a sneak peek, Iron Man fans, you can get their merchandise from F Floor near TGIF.
You can this interesting backdrop that you, Iron Man fans would absolutely looooove…………
Do you know the names of the characters in these paintings? Lovely, aren’t they?
Also, closer towards the escalator at F Floor, you can see this really interesting 3D Art on the floor…
Awesome, ain’t it? For those of you who have not seen it, remember to drop by and also get yourself some merchandise to officially brand yourself as an Iron Man fan.
Just to digress back to the movie, we wonder if there are any more sequels to this movie. What do you think?
