Last night, I watched the much anticipated Iron Man 3 with a friend of mine even though the movie is officially released today in Singapore. But because both myself and my friend are fans of the sassy Mr. Tony Stark, we booked the tickets early this week along with many other Marvel fans who filled up half of the theatre we were in. How do I know they are Marvel fans? They stayed behind after the credits roll because these fans (myself included) know that there are always treats left behind after the credits.
I guess my mind is blown out of the water by this movie that my head felt like (and still feel like) splitting open into two when I reached home. I was laughing a lot throughout the movie as expected because you cannot laugh at some of the things that Tony Stark said. No matter how serious and dire a situation could be, trust Tony Stark to solve it and still have a sense of humour.
But it’s not just laughter all-around. As we all know in Avengers, Tony and the other Avengers were in New York and defeated an army of Chitauri – the extraterrestrial race. We also know that Tony flew up to space to blow up the portal to stop Chitauri from travelling into earth. And because of that, his armour lost its power and he came flying back down to earth hard but still survived. We thought that Tony would be okay with that. In Iron Man 3, we found out that he was not over what happened in New York. He knew what is out there and he knew he had to protect, not just others, but the one person he couldn’t live without, Pepper. Throughout the movie, he was burdened by it and also his past came back to haunt him. So, it’s not just full of laughs and action but there were some points when you feel for him. And if you are all girl power, there is full of girl power here in the name of Pepper Potts. She’s not that much of a damsel in distress, you know.
Like I said earlier, if you watch this movie, please stay back till after the credits because you are in for a treat. At the end of the movie itself, something will happen so if you are a fan of Iron Man or any of the Avengers or the whole Avengers team, you will be on the edge of your seat wanting to know what happens next. And you will get it after the credits. The credits will be long so be patient but it’s worth the whole credit roll.
I absolutely love this movie. It’s probably one of the best Iron Man movie to me.
