Cool Videos: Iron Man 3 gets an Honest Trailer and a reimagining starring Mark Wahlberg

09.03.2013by:

As the Summer of 2013 movie season comes to a close, it is time to celebrate with the movie that kicked it off: IRON MAN 3. Some of you loved the third Tony Stark adventure while many were disappointed by the twists and turns in Shane Black's blockbuster. With everyone divided over the film, it seems the only way to address it is with an all-new Honest Trailer!

The guys at Honest Trailers always do a great job of distilling our frustrations with movies, for better or worse, into a nice five minute bundle of snark. This IRON MAN 3 edition is no different as it argues the holes in the plot, pacing, and overall package. I wonder myself why none of The Avengers jumped in to save Tony. I mean, the entire plot was global news. The Mandarin isn't work S.H.I.E.L.D.'s attention?

The second video imagines what IRON MAN would have been like (or could be, some day) if Mark Wahlberg had the title role. The entire franchise is reimagined in the vein of THE FIGHTER complete with thick Boston accents and references to Fenway Park. I can tolerate the idea of Wahlberg when it is a joke like this, but the actual prospect of him being Tony Stark fills me with dread. Not a good idea at all.

Nail. On. The. Head.

I believe that Honest trailer mentioned all the things that bothered me in IM3 except that Iron Patriot doesn't do shit either and gets owned like a bitch. I even liked Iron man 2 but they should have thrown some suit action in the middle of it. That end battle saved a lot though. Not so in Iron man 3 which had lame action when it had it with the suit(s). Downey Jr. was good again though and enjoyed his banter with the kid, otherwise IM3 was a huge letdown!

In real life we thought Osama Bin Laden was in a cave but he turned out to be in a mansion with internet access and porn on his computer. Ben Kingsley nailed it. Even though he was an actor he wasn't innocent. He knew what was going on: he just wasn't the one in control.

Every single thought I had watching Iron Man 3 they absolutely nailed!!! Especially "they were doing so good and they turn him into a punchline!" Finally up dated the character to be relevant to the time, made him scary and then they do that??!! Then we get fire breathing lava people. Really??? I still can't believe this film made so much money.

What a lousy movie. They should have called it 'IRON MAN (for) 3 (minutes)'.

After IM3 was over I was sad and disappointed, but then I also realised that IM2 is no longer the weakest entry and got downright depressed. Tony Stark and his prissy anxieties bugged the crap out of me, and don't get me started on that fucking side-kick kid of his. The Honest Trailer tells it exactly how it is. Never would've thought Shane Black would fuck up in the writing department so bad.

The Mandarin isn't worth S.H.I.E.L.D.'s attention?

my thoughts exactly. well, there's a part where they say something like "the Mandarin is a threat to America, so America will take care of it" (Iron Patriot). though you would think it'd be Captain America.

Honest Trailer is honest

Remote Control Man was one of my biggest gripes about Iron Man 3. that and him retiring at the end. however... HOWEVER... if Avengers 2 is something about how Tony walks away from the Avengers and gives them Automated Iron Man as his replacement, then it goes rogue and turns into Ultron and Tony realizes that he must don the suit again, and also that HE himself being in the suit is the only way it'll work, then... then all is forgiven and Iron Man 3 makes sense again.

Did no one notice the point of the movie?
How it was "Does the suit make the man or does the man make the suit?" It was showing that he didn't need the suit to be a hero. It kinda goes back to the Avengers when Cap America asked him what he was without the suit.

I see your point but that does not mean it was not a crappy film.

Thing is, that theme was one of the most forced themes in any movie in recent memory. It didn't feel natural to the events in the movie at all. It didn't flow. In order to achieve that theme, JARVIS had to inexplicablly malfunction and send Tony to Tennessee, Tony had to unconvincingly freak out over the events of the Avengers and build some really shoddy, cheap Iron Man suits, and he had to illogically blow up all of his suits and somehow get his electromagnet removed at the end.

The events of the movie didn't dictate the theme, it was the other way around. And that's just poor filmmaking.

that was the point they were going for but they failed. tony stark failed at almost everything he set out to do in this movie. he didnt defend his home, he didnt save the president, he didnt save pepper, he didnt defeat killian.

I didn't hate Iron Man 3, but it was the weakest of the trilogy and I'm glad this pointed out some of the flaws. I honestly can't think of another superhero movie that had the character not be in costume as the "hero" any less than Iron Man 3.

And people ripped the Dark Knight Rises for barely having Bruce in his Batman costume. Nothing compared to Iron Man 3

I actually bloody loved this movie BECAUSE I saw none of it coming.

I was utterly up for watching a broken, PTSD Tony Stark freak out for ninety minutes, because we've not seen that yet and it makes perfect sense (as much as these things do). And using the Mandarin to parody the idea of a silly voiced mega-villain threatening the city was hilariously inspired.

Still, this video was great.

Regular Man

Rather than getting into the Mandarin plot twist debate, the biggest let down was wrapping up the whole 'Pepper was injected with Extremis' plot line conveniently in a 5 minute montage at the end. Not to mention the fact that the affliction Tony's been dealing with ever since the 1st movie is also conveniently and easily removed during that very same montage. I get they were going for the fact that Tony IS Iron Man, not the actual suit. But it just wasn't effective at all. As for the video

Yeah, he used Extremis to have the surgery. He didn't have that in the first two movies.
