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?

Iron Man 3 was directed by Shane Black, from a screenplay written by Drew Pearce. The film opened in theaters May 3, 2013. It stars: Robert Downey Jr. (Tony Stark), Gwyneth Paltrow (Virginia Potts), Don Cheadle (Col. James Rhodes), and Ben Kingsley as The Mandarin.

Say what you want about the movie, but I was shocked that some of the CGI looked downright awful. It was good when it mattered, like the Air Force One rescue scene or the ending battle with all the suits. But a lot of the minor stuff just looked terrible.

The one scene that stands out to me right now is from the very beginning, when Tony first calls the Mark 42 to him in his suit room and he has almost all of the suit on him except for the mask. That little flip thing he does so it lands on his face...ugh, that looked absolutely terrible.

@ SauronsBane

Yean there were many problems with this movie beyond noticing if there were any CGI problems.

The movie broke the Mk 42 down even more than this video ever could.

Cool ass armor. (Too bad all it did in the movie was malfunction and fall apart.)

well done video and I think BETTER version of Mark42 should be the basis for Stark suit/s in Avengers 2. Maybe add the nano-element to it etc.

And those who still for some weird reason are pissed. Believe me, the next movie for Stark is once again big and blockbuster, so dont worry you will get more just CGI-suit action and less the real people (Stark). I'm sure these A-list actors are most bestly used that way ;)
