Entertainment Weekly

By Owen Gleiberman
Iron Man 3 is an ominously exciting, shoot-the-works comic-book spectacular.

Slant Magazine

By Chris Cabin
A madly creative, darkly comical, and fiendishly self-aware actioner with muscle to spare.

Thanks to Downey’s genius, Iron Man 3 is equally terrific, whether Tony’s fending off an army of villains or bantering with a kid in a shed...

Downey, Jr. remains a rightfully cherished smartass figure, having as much a ball with Black’s one-liners as he had in “KKBB,” and he sells...

Iron Man 3 is smart, funny and spectacular.

Black and his co-screenwriter, first-timer Drew Pearce, have great fun reshuffling the deck, teasing about who might occupy what superhero...

The Telegraph

By Robbie Collin
Black has an instinctive feel for balancing action set-pieces against the passages of soap-opera that are required to make them matter.

The rambunctious Iron Man 3 is a briskly paced thrill ride until about 90 minutes in, when the excitement wanes. A few late-breaking...

Iron Man 3 is more perfunctory and workmanlike than its two predecessors, but this solid production still delivers more than enough of what...

Rust on the Franchise

By MedRed
Do not expect a movie on par with the Avengers. Iron Man 3 in no way approaches the lofty bar set by that movie. IM3 isn't bad but didn't meet my expectations IM3's plot combines the genetically...

Colossal Disappointment

By 88fingerz
Just to get this out of the way: I love Iron Man. I think that Robert Downey Jr. is the perfect actor to play him. The rest of the cast is top-notch as well. I have no complaints as far as...

Worth Seeing in 3D!

By pedsarq
This is everything I wanted to see in an Ironman sequel. The acting is top notch and the story is the best yet. The Mandarin, played by Ben Kingsley, is worth the price of admission alone. He is the...

I good chapter in the IRON MAN movie series

I think fans have become too spoiled. We expect that EVERY marvel movie will thread together and introduce upcoming possible marvel movies and/or plot points. However, we fail to realize that the...

It's Iron Man, why wouldn't you go see it???

By ldbryant55
I try not to read reviews, at least until I've seen a movie. Afterwards, sometimes I can't resist, but it always ends up pissing me off. There are so many cynical f***tards out there that wouldn't...

An entertaining film

By 809
Movie was full of story. I enjoyed the movie, had its moments of laughter and action, but lots of story. Not the best of the 3, but enjoyable. If comparing it to The Avengers, I'm sorry, it isn't...

Iron Man 3

By stryc
I go to see the Iron Man movies for “Iron Man” action stuff in the suit and the special effects. Robert Downy is a great Tony Stark, with his quick wit/banter and delivery, but I don’t want to see...

That what I'm talking about...

By artg77
The action is there, the story hooks you. Considering today's terrorism topics, the story is current. Throw in the Ironman persona, you got Ironman 3. And Pepper got the suit! Story twists and of...

If you loved the first two, you will definitely enjoy this one. Although I'm not certain it is my favorite, everything about it is true to the series and it is quite fun. ENJOY:)...

Great Film!

By benjamindavidleehill
I enjoyed this movie a lot. Downey Jr's acting was superb. There are twists in the plot I didn't see coming. Just a fun, funny, action film, with great visual effects....
