Sleigh Bell Cinema | Iron Man 3 (2013)



I'm joined by William Bruce West to examine the set-at-Christmas Iron Man 3. Is it a good Christmas movie? Is it a good Iron Man movie? Remember that game, Barrel of Monkeys? This is more fun than that.

You’d mentioned William more than once on Twitter so it’s good to hear the collaboration at last!

I think you guys put the finger on my own mixed feelings about this movie. Ben Kingsley is great as the Mandarian, the twist is a great gut punch/punchline but once he’s gone there no one left to do the heavy lifting for villainy in the third act.

I had considered Iron Man 3 for Mystery Movie Night some years back for an episode that would have been about Christmas set movies that were released over the summer, but put it off to the side.

I’m a little surprised you haven’t seen Kiss KISS Bang Bang yet. Hopefully someone will make that their choice for an upcoming episode.

By happenstance I watched The Nice Guys, The Predator and The Last Boy Scout all in the past month and all of them feature this Shane Black tagalong kid trope.
