Don Jon is a comedy film about a New Jersey guy who dedicated to his family, friends, and church, develops unrealistic expectations from watching porn and works to find happiness and intimacy with his potential true love. Directed by Joseph Gordon-Levitt and starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Scarlett Johansson, Julianne Moore, Don Jon opens on October 18, 2013.
Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) is more obsessed with building Iron Man suits than spending time with his girlfriend Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow) who is now the CEO of Stark Industries. At times, Stark suffers flashback from events that took place in The Avengers which continues to weaken him. Starks seems to be telling (to someone) on an event which took place back in New Year’s Eve 1999. Then, he was with Maya Hansen (Rebecca Hall) completely ignored the proposal of Advanced Idea Mechanics (AIM) by a crippled scientist Aldrich Killian (Guy Pearce).
Back in the present day, a terrorist known as the Mandarin (Ben Kingsley) continues to threaten national securities with his strings of bombings which lack of evidence, Stark Industries security chief Happy Hogan (Jon Favreau) is critical injured in one of the bombings, Stark issues a televised threat to the Mandarin who responds by destroying Stark’s Malibu home with helicopter gunships.
Although Pepper and Hansen, who came to warn Stark, survive the attack, the world thinks Stark is dead. As Stark is flown to rural Tennessee, he learns the Extremis is behind the attack as he teams up with a boy named Harley (Ty Simpkins) to overcome and track down Mandarin.
Later on, Stark learns that the Mandarin is just fictional character played by a drunken British actor named Trevor Slattery; it was Killian who is behind all the attack — alas, I’m sorely disappointed as the Mandarin is supposed to be a powerful supervillain as portrayed in the comic.
When Killian is about to kill the President of the United States, Stark and Rhodes manage to thwart the attack as Stark calls upon his fleet of Iron Man suits with JARVIS’ help and destroy every single Extremis.
Overall, Iron Man 3 didn’t disappoint (except the Mandarin part) and is quite entertaining.
7 out of 10
The best of all three Iron Man films but the film is filled with explosions and fires which at times consume the show.
Yes, please stay back after the post-credits to find out who Stark was telling his story to.
