Iron Man 3: So Awesome. Or… Not.

(Original Subheader: SO AWESOME!!! Wait… hold up… did I just see that, let me think…. Oh… wait.. not as awesome as I thought! *GASP*)

Ok gang, so it’s been awhile since I’ve reviewed a film, and yes you’ve probably read a million reviews on this film.  But this one is FULL of SPOILERS, cursing, and full on hate for this film,  so consider yourself WARNED!

Overall I give Iron Man 3 a C- ….  Yes that’s right, a C-.

Forget the fact that this movie made $700 Million so far, REMEMBER it opened up in EUROPE A WEEK EARLY!  Which I’ve learned that Europeans have no taste in good movies.  I mean the Europeans spent nearly $300 Million on the last Resident Evil installment when the US only spent $25 Million… Tells ya something.

This movie is honestly the worst in all the three Iron Man films, because of a number of details which I will mention here….

SPOILER ALERT…..SPOILER ALERT……SPOILER ALERT!!! Read more
