Review: IRON MAN 3

IronMan31

When Tony Stark’s world is torn apart by a formidable terrorist called the Mandarin, he starts an odyssey of rebuilding and retribution.

IronMan32

People weren’t sure what to expect with this movie, the trailers looked good, but I was very excited, they took a different route then what I expected. As usual Robert Downey Jr. played the role perfectly, even better this time around, you feel like Tony Stark isn’t just the man in the suit, he is Iron Man and this time he has a formidable enemy. Ben Kingsley played his character fantastically with a huge surprise honestly, something I was expecting that I loved, it just made the twist even more, lets say interesting, and this added to the flavor of the movie. I don’t want to mention any spoilers so just watch it, but know the last fight scene got me so excited that I was jumping out of my seat, it was insane and over the top and I loved it. Honestly this movie was better then the original Iron Man that everyone loved. I watched it uncut and some scenes will be cut and it would ruin it a bit since there is a part with the bad guys that involves that twist I mentioned that spices things up.

Review: Iron Man 2

The story has been told and everybody knows of Iron Man, and I was expecting to be amazing but it was even better, if I can find the word for that. You get to see all the aspects of Iron Man as the machine and Tony Stark as the genius who falls into darkness. The script was perfect the characters fit perfectly and the Audi R8 Convertible looked damn hot. A nonstop action packed movie from beginning to end with juicy story that keeps you guessing whats going to happen next. What I loved is that the trailers were all great but they didn’t give away the story. I think every person should watch this movie, there is no question that you will love it.

Now for the stars of the movie, as usual Roberty Downey Jr. knows how to perfect Tony Stark with his darkside and adding his usual wit and banter. Samuel L. Jakson played the perfect tough guy who will kick your ass role of Nick Fury of S.H.E.I.L.D, you can even see the small pieces of the Avenger stories here and there. For any fan you really take the whole thing in, trying to keep up with everything they are throwing at you. Did I love the movie, yes, do I want to see it again soon, DEFINITELY. The two who perfected the movie, a hero can only be made a hero with the perfect villain and in this case it was Sam Rockwell and Mickey Rourke. Sam Rockwell played Justin Hammer CEO of Hammer Industries, the competitor of Stark and he would do anything to beat Tony Stark. The perfect Corporate Villain, no law will stop him from beating the competition even if he is over his head. Now Mickey Rourke just set the standard for evil super villains, he became Ivan Vanko or Whiplash, truly being the evil villain that he is, pure Russian with his belief in destroying Tony Stark. The story is amazing but these characters took it to another level, I don’t know how they plan to top this off, and what to expect for the Avengers, or Thor, or Captain America but Marvel has set the standard high and they have a lot of fans to please, I just keep wanting more of these movies and Iron Man 2 has just set the standard higher then before.

Update:

The Tony and Rhodey roadshow blasted through multiplexes, scoring $133.6 million over Friday and Saturday. With another $194 million coming in from overseas, IM2’s worldwide gross stands at $327.6 million.

Iron Man 2 – War Machine – Hot Toys

Since reading Iron Man back as a kid I always considered War Machine to be the bad-ass version of Iron Man, “Shoot First, Ask Questions Later” type of guy who would use that ridiculously powerful suit. Now Hot Toys has went ahead with a Iron Man 2 movie detailed model based on War Machine and Don Cheadle, it has all the weapons and arc reactor that lights up. I think this is an amazingly detailed model that shows all the features of War Machine, but I’m not a big fan of the moving types of toys, I prefer the stationary kind for display purposes, but nonetheless this is one cool model. It supposed to be released towards the of Q2 2010 or beginning of Q3 but no pricing announced yet.

Iron Man 2 – Trailer

IronMan2

The Iron Man 2 trailer 2 is out and it doesn’t disappoint, more bullets, more explosions, more Iron Man. You get a bit more of the story, you get to see Don Cheadle as War Machine. You get to see the cocky Tony Stark as he is pubicly Iron Man. I seriously can’t wait to see this movie only two months left and it just keeps getting better and better. I like that small clip with Samual L. Jackson, some how S.H.I.E.L.D is going to play a bigger role, which is going to lead to another movie, this just gets better and better.

Iron Man 2 – More Pictures

I just can’t get enough of Iron Man 2, the pictures are saying something but not enough. I’m assuming that trailer will be out in a couple of months, so now there is a few story lines to follow in that. All I know is that I have no clue how they plan to top the first Iron Man movie, but from the looks of it, its starting to look good. And Don Cheadle is War Machine in this movie. (Check out more pictures below)

Review: Traitor

tratorposter

I always watch Don Cheadale movies because I know that he chooses these interesting characters. I know that I have gotten tired of the Muslim always being the bad guy in the movie, except when there is a great storyline, this movie had that and more. Samir Horn (Cheadle) was caught for terrorist activities in Yemen, joining up with the terrorists to get out of prison. All the while in the US communication activities indicate that there is an imminent attack on the US or US government facility, the government task force trying to piece things together. Roy Clayton from the FBI pays special attention to Samir, and is interested in him which leads them to their goal. This movie takes a completely different track then expected, even when you can figure it out its still exciting.
