Why do people hate Iron Man 3?
Loads of people seem to really have a problm with the new Iron Man film, & I really don't get it. I thought it was amazing! The best of all the MCU. Some have even gone far enough to say that IM2 was better than IM3.
It's seems like mostly comic nerds who say this imo, because they want it to be too much like the comics instead of approaching the film with an open mind. All my friends who have seen it (and aren't into comics like I am) enjoyed the film.
I personally really liked IM 3, probably even more than the 2nd. It was funny throughout, had good action, more Tony, Mandarin twist was hilarious, genuine threat, decent story etc. It wasn't on the level of Avengers but still a very enjoyable film imo. Oh and I've never really paid attention to her before but Gwyneth P is hot lol.

It was an enjoyable movie. I didn't like how Tony was only angry for a few seconds when the love of his life pepper fell off the building. Would of been an aweSome revenge fight.
the movie didn't take itself very seriously and that kind of hurt it.
The Ironman film series is taking the dumb path. When I found out the 3rd film would be based on Extremis I was excited but in the end the film kept Tony stark at a weak level, which ignored the actual source material.
I base this on Downey Jr telling the writers to give Pepper Potts a more aggressive role in the film and the fact the writers lack any real vision.
And the Mandarin should have been left out until the fourth film. Where Ironman actually displayed the abilities to fight such a foe worthy of the character. But they made the right choice considering the situation at hand.
Being current film Ironman being just a man in a tin suit and the Mandarin we all wanted being a character that would crush him in an instant.

The best comic book movies, in my opinion, focus on character development first and foremost. That's what made the first Iron Man so successful. It had tons of development and just a little action in the beginning and end. Iron Man 2 still had a decent amount of character development, but pushed action and explosions more than the first and suffered somewhat for it. Iron Man 3 tried to have some character development by pushing the post-Avengers PTSD stuff, but honestly I found that forced, out of character, and ultimately annoying. Then the absurd amount of action really didn't help things. It's not that Iron Man 3 was bad, it just wasn't very good.
I feel the same way about Man of Steel, for anyone interested. The previews showed so much potential for character development and relationships, and then the real movie was just an action-laden wreck.
Oh and the change of directors disrupted the feel and continuity, IMO.

And on the first day, Doom spoke... 'Be.'
And then there was life."
I just found it boring tbh, felt like some hospital drama show with a few armors and burning supersoldiers thrown in. Don`t think there is one single memorable moment in the whole film actually, yawn. About the Mandarin twist tho I did not really mind that.
THIS. This is why I didn't like it. It was pretty amusing right up until super powered Pepper showed up, then I'm pretty sure I was shouting "FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU..." all the way until the end of the movie.
People hate it because it sucked and its plot was stupid as hell.
That seems fairly obvious.
