Just saw it and I really have mixed feelings. RDJ once again steals the show as Tony Stark but.....

Extremis was extremely overpowered to the point where the enhanciles tearing armor apart like it's tissue paper. Either that or they massively depowered the armors so that the armor army scene was a little more leveled out.

And Iron Patriot was basically the biggest bitch of the movie, barely any action but Cheadle still put on a good performance.

So yeah...this will be a divisive one that's for sure but as the average moviegoer I enjoyed watching it and expect it to sell a ton of merchandise.

The origin of the Mandarin was a really good scene though. Will cause massive rage with the fanboys though which is doubly awesome :lol:

Does it at least have a better climax than Iron Man 2?

Yes. Till one scene near the end where (read at your own risk of being spoiled) Pepper saves the day which was pretty flat for me.

But the extent to which Extremis is so OP is ridiculous.

What's so wrong with that? Better then the usual damsel gets caught scenario.

she tears through an armor while she's hopped up on extremis (no rescue armor), puts on the remains of an arm and uses it to blast the movie's true villain with it. it's like extremis makes them absurdly powerful, not even ellis's extremis story where iron man gets his ass beat made him that powerful.

i dunno, it was really anticlimatic after the big fight scene where stark went through about 3-4 armors fighting him and when he looked beaten pepper comes in.

Sooooooo, is The Mandarin played by Kinsley really just a British actor and the real villain is Guy Pierce's character?
