Iron Man 3:So Much More

After constant pestering, planning, and anxiously waiting I had the absolute pleasure of seeing Iron Man 3 today in theaters. On my constant badgering  me and my friends arrived exactly an hour early, were first in line, and got the absolute best seats. I have so many thoughts on this movie and yet so few words to express the brilliance of yet another fantastic Marvel production. Being the sociopathic fan girl that i am, I had seen all the clips, all the spoiler, and have all the details on the production, and yet nothing could have prepared me for the events that conspired on the screen. Brilliant. While I must admit I personally can't say it beat Avengers as far as my enjoyment during the film... the plot, screen play, and overall foundation of the film beats out any other movie...ever.

In Avengers Captain America poses a  question, which of course is met  by a sassy counter by none other than Tony Stark. We may not have realized this at the time, but it was so much more than that.

"Big man in a suit of armor. take that away,what are you?"
When you sit down to think about it, he has a point. What is he? Is he a man? A machine? A party-loving-playboy-with some fancy shades? Is he an inventor, a hero, or perhaps a business man? This question that we all laughed off, is brought into new light with the Iron Man film. Over the course of the movie we venture to find out what he really is, when he takes off the suit, and perhaps also what happens underneath the suit. During the movie Tony has to not only face his 'demons' such as the Mandarin, but also he struggles with the internal conflict of PTSD. In the end, the answer to the question becomes clear. The movie itself has some incredible acting including a young boy who (almost) stole the show. We see Tony's more sensitive side when he takes on a young companion who provides a bit more help than expected. I think Marvel did an...scarily brilliant job of creating a villain  realistic to our modern day society in more ways than we can imagine. It begs the question of where is the line we draw in our advancement to technology, and is there a point where we go to far. The script was insanely good...with comic relief to keep the movie light, plot twists galore, and  small references throughout the movie to give it that extra little touch. The acting of course only furthers my belief that RDJ is in fact Tony Stark and  the realistically of all the characters kept me constantly having to remind myself that is a just a movie. Like I said before the plot was amazing. Tying up the movies in a neat little, heart crushing, bow. I can not wait for more.
I would like to spend a little time explaining some things though. Yes yes yes I know you all want to know why is it Christmas. Well RDJ hurt his ankle in a stunt accident so the movie had to be delayed, so ya it was a bit abstract but not exactly planned.

(This next part in parenthesis is a spoiler so skip down if you don't want to see this. Okay so Me and  my friends were wondering if the arch reactor could have been removed than why didn't he when he was dying in the second movie? Well what I concluded was that he saw it as apart of him. If  it was failing, he was failing, and he couldn't just get rid of it. Which only furthers the plot's amazingness) Spoilers concluded.

This movie will keep you at the edge of your seat, with a tear down your cheek, a smile on your face, and absolute concern in your eyes. With so much to say, and so few words to say it, I can only hope to sum it up by leaving you with this. Marvel, does it right. I thoroughly enjoy having my heart torn peaces, my thoughts left in wonder, and my mind blown. So I repeat...Marvel. does. it. right.
