film trailer: Iron Man 3

Tony Stark uses his ingenuity to fight those who destroyed his private world and soon goes up against his most powerful enemy yet: the Mandarin.

It’s a old story retold once again.  A man at the top of his game being stripped of his glory only to fight his way back to the top.  At least that’s the vibe I get from watching the new teaser for Iron Man 3.  Haven’t we seen this movie before a la Iron Man, Iron Man 2, The Dark Knight Rises?  I just hope we don’t have to sit through a third origin story about Tony Stark’s past and his father issues.  Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed the previous techno clad hero’s films and gladly added them to my blu-ray collection.  But if I am to be honest, the first film was the best out of the individual Avenger films and while it had great first act of an origin story, the last act lacked in serious action for a summer block buster.  Not that the action sequences were horrible, just disappointingly short.  While movie one has a back story to establish, movie two has no excuse to hold back and should have been allowed to go balls to the walls.  Instead, the sequel hinders itself by telling three origin stories:  Arch Reactor 2.0, War Machine, and Whiplash.  Let’s not forget, much to director Jon Favreau rumored dismay, Iron Man 2 was forcibly shoe horned into the setting up The Avengers film.  But I digress, I’m not here to review the first two movies and as stated, I enjoyed them.

Let us instead celebrate the new teaser with some hope.  With Shane Black (Kiss Kiss Bang Bang) at the helm, I am optimistic of third installment of the series.  Even with, what looks like, the alluded Mark VIII and Pepper Potts’ rape scene.  Let us know what you guys think.
