Upon further reflection, this movie does have some very deep and thoughtful themes. Like if you ever ditch someone on a rooftop, expect them to dedicate their entire lives to your destruction and global domination. Wow, such amazing character motivation.


Thank god the Wolfpack found the groom in the Hangover or who knows what evils he could have been plotting up there.

That's the point. Everything with Stark is science based. The extremis stuff made injured soldiers re-grow limbs.

Since when did it give them super powers to jump long distances, breath fire, touch steel beams and melt them?

Utterly retarded. I actually thought the twist of the Mandarin being a media creation was actually very interesting (it's what I believe Bin Laden actually was) ... but the actual villain of the film was flat and boring with NO motivations.

At least in TDK Rises the villain returns from the first film, and their motivations actually make sense. The demons that come back to haunt Tony in the 3rd film were created sloppily in this film. So there is no depth and rapport the viewer has with them the way they did with the League of Shadows from Batman Begins and TDK Rises.

You don't have to be dark to take material seriously. The first Iron Man got things right. Let Iron Man be the fantastical element in a grounded reality, and it gives more weight to the story. Nolan / Snyder are doing the same thing with something very fantastical in Superman, but it looks amazing and believable. Why? The reality surrounding Superman is plausible.

This trilogy was extremely average. Not bad, not good, just average.

There were really only like 2 (or 3 if you actually anticipated Pain & Gain) summer movies so far. There is plenty of time for good summer movies.
