Many More Reasons Why Iron Man 3 Was Just Terrible @cinemasins

  • It’s basically “The Incredibles”… see How It Should Have Ended  —  I don’t know why they didn’t just use the original Extremis story line, as that was a much better story.
  • The movie uses celebrities to supposedly poke fun of the Iron Patriot in the movie itself, thereby reinforcing how ridiculous the Iron Patriot is in this movie. Even Stark makes fun of it on two different occasions.
  • “Kiss it on the facial slit…”
  • What kind of crappy missiles from those helicopters are Savin and crew using to attack Stark’s house that they need so many?
  • JARVIS restores flight power to a protoype suit that’s taking damage — and does it while the suit is underwater, has taken in water, and is under a pile of rubble that used to be most of a house.
  • JARVIS does most of the heavy lifting in the movie. In fact, JARVIS does most of everything. If he hadn’t delivered the Mark 42 to Tony when tied to the bed (or right before the end), Tony would still be there (or Killian would have just killed him).
  • The suit’s power drains 95% between Malibu, CA and Rose Hill, TN. The two are 1,920 miles apart. (http://goo.gl/maps/ayBL3) For some reason Stark falls out of the sky with 5% power left, when in the original Iron Man, he stops flying after 2% (and emergency backup power kicks in). Even assuming he’s upped the number to a safer one, he loses 95% of his power in anywhere from 2-5 hours. (It’s been established in the original Iron Man that he can fly supersonically; that would be a 2.5 hour flight from Malibu to Rose Hill. Assuming he’s flying half that speed doubles the time.) Yes, he was in a fight, and it is a prototype, but what kind of Iron Man suit runs out of power after 5 hours? It has to be recharged, which apparently takes a while, making the Mark 42 essentially a giant cell phone with the world’s worst battery.
  • The kid on meeting Tony doesn’t seem to know who he is, yet hands him a paper about him; AND asks what happened to Iron Man, when he’s just handed him the paper with the giant headline “Mandarin Attack: Stark Presumed Dead”
  • Why does Stark need a dgital watch? Just so he can tell time? Doesn’t he have a cell phone?  This serves only to provide plot jokes which aren’t all that funny.
  • From where does Stark get a repulsor in Rose Hill (which he uses to shoot Savin), and why does it hurt him?”
  • “Recalibrate the ISDNs” – one of the worst tech lines ever.
  • Tony talks about how Killian supposedly sold the technology for Extremis to the Mandarin. That would have been a better story.
  • Why does the Patriot armor get completely incapacitated from one Extremis handshake?
  • Tony Stark’s PTSD suddenly disappears just when it needs to disappear.
  • How does Stark pay for all the items in the store if he’s presumed dead? Must have been with cash…
  • It’s fortunate for the rest of the movie that Savin and/or Kilian don’t actually kill Rhodey like was done to Maya Hansen.
  • Stark is firing the Uzi while spinning around in a corner near a wall and doesn’t get hit by any ricochets…
  • Stark charges the Mark 42 from a car battery.
  • Are there no security protocols for letting a suited man with advanced weaponry onto Air Force One?
  • Does the Mark 42 punch through a window on Air Force One to shoot Savin the first time?
  • How was there an explosive in the compartment where the people were trapped? Savin locked them in as soon as he arrived, so where did the explosive come from? He boarded the plane with the President and couldn’t have placed it there beforehand.
  • One of the people sucked out of the plane is still wearing his Santa hat just before he gets sucked out of the plane. (Seriously, re-watch it.) If I’m on Air Force One and I’ve just been trapped by a terrorist who is holding the President, I’m ditching the Santa hat.
  • “I will electrify your arm and you won’t be able to open your hand.” Why is Stark threatening the flight attendant with this? Where’s the context?
  • It’s a good thing all those crewmembers could swim…
  • “Death by oil…” is a line uttered in this movie.
  • Heartbreaker does a terrible job of helping Red Snapper, who gets his face ripped off and then explodes.
  • Why is there a container hanging from wires in the sky in this shipyard?  Is it supposed to be on a crane?
  • What is in this container that it so violently explodes on impact with the ground?
  • Are the suits coded to individuals or not? President Ellis can’t use the Iron Patriot armor, but Rhodey can (as evidenced by his using the repulsor to free the President) and yet Savin can use the same suit without issue.
  • Physics – it’s a thing. This movie ignores pretty much all of it completely. Even accounting for suspension of disbelief. To be fair, this is not the only movie for which this is a problem. However, there are several instances of people walking into, through, and/or out of fire and their clothes do not burn. Hell, Killian is quite literally exploded in the Mark 42 and yet his trousers are fine while his skin is so burned that it’s flaking off.
  • Does Pepper launch herself off Tony’s knee when the Mark 7 is attacking her? It certainly looks that way – and no, he’s not wearing an armor leg.
  • Tony is still wearing the arm of whatever half-suit he jumped into (“Bones”?) – why didn’t he fire at Killian instead of sitting there like an idiot? (Ostensibly so Pepper then could fire at Killian, it would seem.)
  • Speaking of Pepper firing at Killian… she rips the Mark 7 out of the sky, then uses the arm to punch Killian, sending him flying. He then gets up, and a small missile rolls out of the damaged Mark 7, which she then kicks toward him and blows up (thereby blowing up Killian). However – she has no arc reactor and so it would not have been possible for her to fire repulsors from the arm.
  • All this after they finished explaining how the suits were coded to Tony and couldn’t be used by Rhodes for that very reason.
  • The Mark 7 is in fantastic shape, considering all the damage it took in Avengers AND that it was one of the suits in the alcove that was destroyed by missiles at the beginning of the movie.
  • They’re using an electromagnet to remove the shrapnel from Tony at the end, and… metallic tools.
  • “The Mechanic”… way to denigrate engineering. He we have what is one of the smartest men in the Marvel universe, who has created the world’s most advanced AI, as well as 42 variants of an exo-skeleton that makes everything else look like pathetic, and we’ve reduced to calling him a “mechanic”.
