IRON MAN 3 Makes The Best Movies Of The Year's List From Forbes Magazine
Unfortunately for the naysayers, Marvel Studios Iron Man 3 is not only the most public acclaimed superhero film of the year, it's also one of the most critically acclaimed superhero films in the recent history. Click here to find out what Forbes Magazine has to say about the film!
As the new year comes closer, Iron Man 3 has been featured in a lot of the best movies of the year lists, especially among the main movie websites, among films like Gravity and 12 Years A Slave.
After Empire Magazine and The Huffington Post to name a few labeled the third entry in the Iron Man franchise the best superhero film of the year, and a "Best Action Movie" nomination by the Critic's Choice Movie Awards, this time Forbes Magazine is the one giving Iron Man 3 the praise the film deserves, with Scott Mendelson claiming it's "easily the best "conventional" blockbuster of 2013". Read below the full excerpt:
This is the kind of whip-smart blockbuster than almost ennobles the would-be genre. Yes, it’s a special effects-filled action romp that’s part of an ongoing franchise, but it’s also an individual work of art, a case of Marvel being willing to diversify their ongoing feature films even at the expense of the bigger picture. Not only did Shane Black get to make a Shane Black movie in the guise of a $200 million blockbuster, he gave us some of the sharpest political commentary of the year in the form of the year’s best plot twist, a twist that Disney miraculously kept secret until the film actually opened via a subversion of marketing expections, and brought genuine closure to the series. Comic fans carped about source fidelity, but let them eat cake, since it made $1.2 billion anyway. Iron Man 3 is an exciting and intelligent adventure picture that is as funny and character-driven as it is action-packed, with the stand-up and applaud action sequence of the year. Iron Man 3 is easily the best “conventional” blockbuster of 2013.
I personally think that Iron Man 3 is the best solo entry from the Marvel Studios so far. For a blockbuster - especially a superhero blockbuster - it is more clever than it deserves, delivering a political commentary in the "war on terror" more efficiently than anything out in The Dark Knight Trilogy. And you, what do you think? Sound off in the usual place.
Marvel Studios’ Iron Man 3 pits brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds. When Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy’s hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle. With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him. As he fights his way back, Stark discovers the answer to the question that has secretly haunted him: does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man?
