DAJBisukunMy point isn't that the good guy won. The disappointing factor was the the nature of the set up itself. I could hear the cogs turning in the producer's mind: "Hmmm - the hero is a guy in a metal suit … what kind of villain could we have for the climax? I know - another guy in an even bigger metal suit! Oh - and he could defeat him with … an explosion!"That kind of thinking is just lazy.That aside, I'd have to say the final 20 minutes were disappointing. It was just too predictable and … yeah, it was okay but … nothing special.Most of your comic book movies, particularly those about superheroes aren't going to be riddled with plot twists. What more were you expecting from the ending? It's not like they're going to have the hero lose in the end.
Well that was basically who Iron Monger was in the comics. Iron Man frankly doesn't have any good villains save a few, and since they signed on for three movies they need to place what good ones they have to work with in such a way that it makes sense. That said, I agree with you a bit. Seeing Iron Man fight in only two scenes was pretty shitty. Then again, that's the same feeling I got from Batman Begins. The only movie I've watched that pulls off the long winded origin story was Spider-Man.
I mean, it's better that it's Iron Monger and his whole “I'm in a bigger suit” catch than the fucking Unicorn. :/
