Anyway I already did. To be honest, I was coming into the theater with high expectations after the epicness of The Avengers. I was little bit disappointed, but the movie's still okay I guess. It wasn't what I was expecting, especially the villain. I really want to like this movie, but my expectations got the better of me and I hate myself for that.
I do recommend however to watch it. You guys may like it.
Jarvis is f*cking classy in this one. "Gentlemen..."

I knew it wouldn't match the Avengers, they're two different movies, but like I said I feel it told a better story than Avengers (whilst I love that movie its a little barebones in terms of plot).
I loved Iron Man 3 though, and it still had its share of funny and awesome moments.

Avengers really has a shallow plot. It's just a pure mindless superhero action movie. Not that there's anything wrong with that, if you've seen all the previous moves. These individual hero movies have much stronger plots IMO. The focus is on one character so it's also easier to have a better plot when you don't have to think about giving so many characters quality screen time.

Did you guys see the after credits scene? If so, tell it here please (with spoiler tags ofc) or just PM me.

|It's nothing big, it's just Tony recounting the events of the film to Bruce Banner, who's fallen asleep as Tony goes on and on. Tony wakes him up, they have a bit of banter before Tony goes back to recounting his story as Bruce falls asleep again.|
Well that sucks, I was hoping some Guardians of the Galaxy stuff

I liked it about as much as Iron Man 2. Which I liked more than most people. It definitely needed more cameos from other Marvel characters. We've come all this way, got Hollywood to understand that the more like comic books these movies are the better, and then they clam up on us and don't put little things like Easter eggs and cameos. I'm just saying, Tony Stark is an Avenger, he has powerful friends, and suddenly when he could use some help, he doesn't make a call to Nick Fury. Not even to help find the Mandarin, or save the President? And that's the President, Captain America would be chomping at the bit to save him. Wasn't even a Hawkeye or Black Widow cameo. I'm not saying it should have been the Avengers 2, I'm just saying in the comics, when a character is an Avenger, the rest of them are not far away and usually have one of them jump in to help. I did like how he narrates the movie, that's something that happens in comics all the time.

Sure it had giant explosions but the story was terribly weak and the villain made no sense (that and that they screwed up the Mandarin).
"Oh yeah I'm working on something that can regenerate plants, it's a bit unstable". Half an hour later: "OH YEAH AND IT TURNS YOU INTO LAVAMAN AT WILL OR SOMETHING!?!?! LOL!"
And ofcourse the ending: IMMA BLOW UP ALL SUITS LOL. "Tony Stark will be back", no sh*t sherlock. Money will be made.

One small part of me thinks that the plot twist is kind of cool because it was executed fairly well, and it does make sense when you think about it. But the Marvel fan and Iron Man fan in me f*ckin' hates the idea. It felt like the director was taking a piss with the whole thing. I hear people say how it's the best one in the trilogy. Well, the ending is nice. But overall the movie is weak.
And I agree with UrbanTheEmcee. What the f*ck was that all about? It pretty much ruined the entire second act.

If I'm going to rank this with the rest of the Marvel cinematic universe films I'd go...
Iron Man 2
Iron Man 3
The Incredible Hulk
The last 4 are all closer than the rank suggests, and it doesn't mean I don't enjoy them all.

| The Avengers|
Iron Man 2
Iron Man 3
The Incredible Hulk
Almost the same here. Although I did enjoy Thor and Iron Man 2 just as much as I enjoyed Captain America. But Captain America was set in the WW2 which gave it a whole different vibe from the rest of the movies. It is not a typical superhero movie. Iron Man 3 and The Incredble Hulk are fine, but compared to the rest of them they are rather weak. Can't wait for The Winter Soldier.

I just wish they'd do a Hawkeye movie based on the current comic run. Think Bourne/Bond/MI meets Starsky and Hutch/the A-Team meets the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
