Movie Review - Iron Man 3
The movie also reaches a tipping point. It's revealed that Tony Stark doesn't have to be in the Iron Man suit in order to control it. He has multiple Iron Man suits that can be operated by remote control. With his artificial intelligence called Jarvis, Stark doesn't have to do anything. If he's ever in trouble, the suit comes to him and can do so in pieces. That takes away a lot of stakes and a lot of the emotional connection to the character. Jarvis seems to exist in the clouds, so even he is never truly in danger.
The barrel of monkeys at 11,000 feet in the air was a great scene. It was actually an amazing, action sequence, but that's it. It featured great, skydiving stunts along with seamless CGI, but it wasn't worth the bother.
Two Stars out of Five.
Rated PG-13 for intense sci-fi action and violence throughout, and brief suggestive content.
Running Time: 2 hrs. and 10 mins.
