Initially, I wasn’t sure if I should watch Iron Man 3. I remember the Iron Man five years ago was great. I did not like Iron Man 2 and could not remember what the plot was. Not even a single bit. Part one was memorable. Part two was forgettable. But since both my buddy TK and my wife were keen on part three, and the box office seems to do well, why not give one of my favorite actors Robert Downey Jr. another chance?
As it turns out, Iron Man 3 is fun! It reminds me why I love the first installment. There is this human factor as we get to see more on the vulnerable side of Tony Stark than a hero in suit. Tony Stark as an engineer who is playful at heart and he loves to create. The end products may or may not work as intended. Loving it. I am trained as an engineer and I can relate to this aspect of the show. Again, nothing really going on with the Pepper character. There are some silly moments too, like assembling an anti-terrorists outfit and gear using common goods purchased from a local DIY store. Or blowing up robots in order to create a firework. But all in all, an entertaining movie.
