The Armored Avenger flies back into action in the 3rd edition of Iron Man and the 7th film in the 'Avengers' series. This could be the best action movie of the year, as well as one of the best comic book movies ever.
Shane Black had a hard job making a movie to follow the 2012 mega hit 'The Avengers'. Well, I can now say without a doubt it was a job well done. Anyone know what the film Shane Black directed was?. It was 'Kiss Kiss Bang Bang', staring the man himself Robert Downey Jr. I think that is a big part of what made this film work with a new Director.
Speaking of Mr. Downey Jr. there is really no Iron Man story he can't take on. This is his best take on Tony Stark yet. He brings the laughs and the serious side of Tony to life and pulls you into the film. Now he didn't do it alone! Gwyneth Paltrow returns as Pepper Potts and Don Cheadle flies back in as Colonel James Rhodes. Also returning is Iron Man and Iron Man 2 Director/actor Jon Favreau as Happy Hogan, I wonder how it was to act while someone else directed the series you help start. No one can forget the voice we all know, Paul Bettany as Jarvis.
New to the film are Rebecca Hall as Maya Hansen, Sir Ben Kingsely as The Mandarin and Guy Pearce as Aldrich Killian. Big time shout out to the youngest main cast new comer Ty Simpkins aka Harley Keener. Over all this cast is one of the best I've ever seen.
I always love how Robert and Gwyneth always bring the best out of each other in these films, their relationship truly comes to life in this film. The comedy stays true between Don and Robert as well, you can't help but laugh. The same is true with the pair of Gwyneth and Jon in this film. I think the one to watch out for is Ty Simpkins, I hope we will see more of him in upcoming Avengers projects. He really works well along side Robert and can really hold his own.
The special effects and the 3D are marvelous (yes I just used a word with 'Marvel' in it for this review). I don't want to tell you too much about the new suits in the film, but the special effects with the suit alone are EPIC. The filming locations make it very easy to believe in this film.
This is the best Iron Man film and well worth seeing over and over again! A great way to lead us into Phase Two of 'The Avengers'.
