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: Lockout

A man wrongly convicted of conspiracy to commit espionage against the U.S. is offered his freedom if he can rescue the president’s daughter from an outer space prison taken over by violent inmates.

What this movie lacks in special effects it makes up for in character, well at least Guy Pearce does, the guy is perfect for the role. Just the right combination of sarcastic and snazzy, he is the perfect tough guy lead role for this movie and they had the right type of crazies in it. The special effects were lacking significantly, the CG effects from the motorcycle chase to falling out of space were pretty. Pearce reveals a sort of endless reserve of cocky charm, a back pocketful of jokes for the violent situations in which he finds himself. He carrys the characters in his scene including Maggie Grace, the lead females. But take the action movie on its own propulsive merits, and it’s good scifi fun in a tidy package.
