Iron Man 3

Robert Downey Jr. takes over the screen once again as the head of Stark Enterprises, as he battles a new nemesis in the form of the Mandarin, played by Ben Kingsley. Gyweneth Paltrow and Don Cheadle also return in their respective roles as Pepper Potts and War Machine in the fast-paced superhero film. Iron Man 3 doesn’t waste any time before they through you into chaos and mayhem. Of course, there’s nothing like giving the press your address to give to a set of psychotic lunatics to shake things up. I have a feeling Stark thought better of that move when suddenly the Mandarin is blowing up his home with Pepper inside! The third movie in this incarnation of the Iron Man saga doesn’t sit still very much. It starts off fast paced and stays there through much of the film. It slows down a bit when Tony Stark gets help from Harley Keener, played by Ty Simpkins. I really must say that I loved his interaction with this kid.

The course of the characters is so intricate that according to IMDb “the directors told the actors to think of their roles as a “genetic strain” rather than a series of individual parts, with actions in one story-line affecting another.” Love, of course, is the eternal bond that snakes its way through the ages. The desire to protect those we love, and shield them from harm can propel us to great deeds, as can the need to repay a debt of gratitude for a kindness extended or a life saved. Along with the love themes are the questions of courage and truth. Which things are worth risking your life, and what is the price to pay for cowardice or indifference? When is a hidden truth worth risking everything to expose? © 2012 – Warner Bros. Pictures – Still of Xun Zhou in Cloud Atlas In Cloud Atlas, you will watch as the cast transforms in each age in which they live. You’ll have to pay close attention because the stories are interwoven and Tom Hanks in one part of the tale is not the same...
